When your 4 yr old daughter sets up a tea party and includes a book at each place setting ... and puts the one titled "Play Nice" at her twin brother's seat.

I *might* have gone overboard at the libraries today 🙄😯🤓
I got the Andrews book for 50¢ from one of the Friends bookstores

I suppose with a cookbook a “quote” would be baking something from it, right? Here is another tasty sample from what @BennettBookworm sent me for summer swap. Wish I could send you some chica. #booksandbaking

So while they may not look very pretty or exactly like the book, I made my first treat from the book @BennettBookworm sent me. These apple hand pies are tasty and that is what matters! I will need to get a apple shaped cookie cutter though 🤔 #bakingwithbooks

BennettBookworm Ahhhh that looks scrumptious! 5mo

This book has great tea party ideas - including savories, sweets and matching teas. I‘ll admit most of the recipes are beyond my culinary skills (which are very low) but I did tab two recipes to try - toasted cheese buns and long John‘s lime cookies, both inspired by Treasure Island.

Yesterday I attended a literary tea party held at a bookstore. We dished up recipes from the tagged book. Imagine eating delicious sandwiches, pastries and cakes from favourite book lands like Narnia, Wonderland, Middle Earth and Sherlockian England surrounded by the books themselves. I made the King Arthur Sword In The Stone Cheese Bites! It was one of the #bestday I had in recent weeks. We had so much fun and food! 😋

This was a lovely book filled with all sorts of delicious recipes right out of the pages from your favorite books. You will see recipes from Little Women, Alice in Wonderland, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Hobbit, and so much more. This book consists mostly of the types of snacks and drinks you would find at a tea party.

I have received a much appreciated copy of this book from #NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. #arc

ladyonequestion This booj is on a similar theme, but less tea party oriented! 2y
ladyonequestion Book not booj 😁 2y

As an avid tea drinker, reader, and scratch baker - this book fits in my wheelhouse! Imagine pairing your favorite classic books with a savory or sweet treat! All I had to see was Earl Grey Dark Chocolate Lavender Truffles - definitely making those this weekend. Custom recipes and blended teas to the likes of C.S. Lewis, Tolkien, Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Etc. What a wonderful idea! Love this book and hope there's a follow up.

LeahBergen This looks wonderful! 2y
