"Los niños que aprendimos a besar el pan hacemos memoria de nuestra infancia y recordamos la herencia de un hambre desconocida ya para nosotros, esas tortillas francesas tan asquerosas que hacían nuestras abuelas para no desperdiciar el huevo batido que sobraba de rebozar el pescado. Pero no recordamos la tristeza."

I love days and nights like this when the air is crisp and chilled, and the rain alternates between driving and drizzle. These are the days that my imagination takes off, and I feel most myself. I have to keep reminding myself that it is still August and not to get my hopes up that the cool weather is here to stay - and yet I still hope!
🌨️
I'm currently working on the section of #VixensDiner that takes place in the winter, so the change in the weather is even more welcome. The last chapter flew by during edits and I anticipate most of the remainder of the book to do the same.
📃
If you've not yet had a chance, go check out my newest post on my website. It is a delicious pancake recipe that is mentioned in Vixens' Diner. Enjoy!

"This was a Norwegian household, and for the Norwegians the best food in the world is fish. And when they say fish, they don't mean the sort of thing you and I get from the fishmonger. They mean fresh fish, fish that has been caught no more than twenty-four hours before and has never been chilled on a block of ice."

The modern-day plotline of this book features a writer working on her next novel while living in a cottage by the Scottish coast. Since I read this book I’ve been obsessed with the idea of doing this myself, not-so-ideal eating habits notwithstanding.

About halfway through Alice Munro's Dance of the Happy Shades, the stories began breaking my heart: "The word girl had formerly seemed to me innocent and unburdened, like the world child; now it appeared that it was no such thing. A girl was not, as I had supposed, simply what I was; it was what I had to become. "💔 —from "Boys and Girls" (coincidentally alliteratively, pictured here are Bananas and Grapes). The stories shift, taking us from coming-of-age wonder to disillusion. Each of Munro's protagonists are so endearing that you cannot help but stand up for her. ♀️💪📖 Also, now that I'm in Beijing (which is why I'm less insta-active), here's another particularly relatable quote from the collection: "...I had forgotten the immense inland heat, which makes you feel as if you have to carry the whole burning sky on your head." ☀️ #shortstories #breakfast #food #oatmeal #healthy #alicemunro #nobelprize #danceofthehappyshades #literature #books #booksandfood #foodinbooks #bookreview #quotes #reading #eating #collegeeats #collegestudent #healthyeats #foodstagram #bookstagram #igreads #currentlyreading

One of the things I love about food blogging is that I can have an idea, and just... make it happen.
.
When I'm not cooking, I love to read. And three of the novels I read this year (without me seeking these out) happened to contain recipes. Not just descriptions of food, but actual recipes right there in the midst of the story!
.
As I came across these recipes, glanced at them, and moved on to the next paragraph of the story, I wondered ... how many people actually make a recipe they come across unexpectedly in the middle of a piece of fiction? And if anyone was going to, wasn't I the perfect candidate to do that?
.
That's how #NovelRecipes: Summer Reading You Can Sink Your Teeth Into was born: a collaborative series dedicated to exploring recipes that are included in — not just inspired by — fiction and memoirs.
.
I put out a call to any other bibliophile food bloggers to see who wanted to participate in this virtual book club with me, and got several fabulous ladies to join me! .
Each post in the series will contain a book review and a recipe. And now we've got a month full of novels, memoirs, and the recipes that accompany them coming your way!
.
So if you love reading... and eating... check out the link in my profile @pinchmeimeating to see the full book list for August!
.
And if you want to get a sneak peek at the other bloggers participating in the series, visit the profiles of @lemonbabydotco, @whipandwander, @atthetablernr, @onesmallpot, @happyveggieblog, @shuklasujata, and @inspireacreation! So excited to have all these amazing bloggers joining me in this exciting series!

"Anyway — Harry, a very happy birthday to yeh. Got summat fer yeh here — I mighta sat on it at some point, but it'll taste all right." From an inside pocket of his black overcoat he pulled a slightly squashed box. Harry opened it with trembling fingers. Inside was a large, sticky chocolate cake with Happy Birthday Harry written on it in green icing. - Rubeus Hagrid, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
⚡️
Today is July 31st, which means that it's both Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling's birthday. So, it's only fitting that I close out a month of Harry Potter recipes with a big, sticky chocolate cake just like the one Harry received from Hagrid on his 11th birthday.
⚡️
My version of Harry Potter's Sticky Chocolate Birthday Cake is the perfect homage to the magic and whimsy that J.K. Rowling offered the muggle world with her books.

My only experience with Singapore is a layover at the airport (and what an amazing airport it is). Reading Crazy Rich Asians makes me want to visit for a slew of reasons — but I must admit the food in this book is a prime motivator.

"Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic." ✨⚡️🤓
Happy early birthday to Harry Potter and, of course, J. K. Rowling! 🎉📖Thank you for all the magic you have cast into our lives since 1997—this series is as old as I am, helped me learn English as a kid, and is a big reason why I am a literature major today. 📚 Here are 7 cherries 🍒 (an Invisibility Potion ingredient!) and one of Hagrid's rock cakes (read: a scone) to celebrate 😍

My partner and I made this cake last weekend to celebrate my bookstagramiversary. It’s a funfetti cake with pink honey butter cream frosting. The frosting recipe came from The Pooh Cook Book and it was delicious! We’ve been having a slice of cake for evening snack all week and finished it last night. I miss this cake already 😂

“Go on, have a pasty,” said Harry, who had never had anything to share before or, indeed, anyone to share it with. It was a nice feeling, sitting there with Ron, eating their way through all Harry’s pasties, cakes, and sweets (the sandwiches lay forgotten). - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
⚡️
Harry's first introduction to making a friend was sharing his Pumpkin Pasties and other sweets with Ron Weasley on his first train journey to Hogwarts. It's the moment that you know Harry finally has the opportunity to forge the love and friendship he has been lacking in his first 11 years with the Dursleys, and one of my favorite moments from this series.
⚡️
Just like the confection found on the Hogwarts express, these Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pasties are a magical treat to be shared with new and old friends alike.

“Among the very large collection of phonograph records which the Library maintained were perhaps a hundred which Mr Kelso called his Horrible Examples. These were pieces of music which he despised … It had taken Pearl a long time to recognize and admit to herself that just as there were times when she had to buy and eat a dozen doughnuts in one great sensual burst, there were also times when the Horrible Examples, and nothing else, were the music she wanted to hear.”
.
– Robertson Davies, Leaven of Malice
.
The first food description in a book that ever made me stop and reread multiple times just to enjoy it (my copy has a bookmark in it from 2004, which I never move from this page). Listening to music while eating something decadent, creating a very specific sensory environment in which to work out your life. She’s described as “sprawled in a large armchair, her head resting on one arm and her legs dangling over the other.” Who wouldn’t want to do that right now? And who else is craving donuts right now? 🙋🏻‍♀️

I'm reading Lisa Woolley's "American Voices of the Chicago Renaissance" to get a sense of Chicago's literary history for my BA, and within the first few pages have read that Chicago's "rapid development made it, virtually, a city without a history”—something I've interestingly also heard said about Hong Kong. 🇺🇲🇭🇰What does it mean for cities "without history" to create poetry that seems fundamentally interested in locating, shaping, or becoming a part of history? 🤔Pondering this with some mango (from Taiwan 台灣!) oatmeal and a multi-grain mantou 饅頭. .

I’ll be posting some new photos of the food I made from The Pooh Party Book later this week but I wanted to repost this photo of the egg and watercress sandwich that I made from The Pooh Cook Book when I first started this account to acknowledge the progress I’ve made over the past year. I remember this simple sandwich being really challenging for me to make by myself at that point in recovery. While I certainly still have times where I struggle to stay on my meal plan and maintain my recovery, the past year of cooking for this account has helped me become so much more confident and comfortable preparing food for myself. In the past year I’ve prepared meals by myself that would have be completely unthinkable to me when I first started this account (I’m still amazed I managed to make cabbage soup by myself from scratch!). I’m excited to see how much I continue to grow over the coming year!

Good morning! Today I thought I’d repost the first recipe I made for this account, honey apricot muffins from The Pooh Cook Book. These were so tasty warm and topped with butter and honey! Mmm, I wish I had some right now for breakfast. I guess I’ll have to make these again soon.

“Reckon Fred’d take a bit of Cockroach Cluster if I told him they were peanuts?“—Ron Weasley, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
⚡️
In the world of Harry Potter, Cockroach Clusters are likely made from actual candied clusters of cockroaches otherwise Ron wouldn’t have been tempted to dupe his brother Fred into eating them. ⚡️
In my world, I’ve swapped the bugs for a mix of crunchy pecans, creamy nut butter, chocolate, and naturally sweet dates and honey.

Today is the one year anniversary of my instagram account! I can’t believe it’s been a whole year already! The Pooh Cook Book was the first book I featured on my account so it seems only right to celebrate one year of bookstagramming with its companion The Pooh Party Book! I want to thank all of you for supporting me and this account over the past year! Being a part of this amazing community has brought so much joy to my life and helped my recovery immensely. I also want to give a special shout out to some of the wonderful people who have been with me since my first few posts. Thank you for welcoming me into this community and sticking with me throughout my journey!

"...she turned out to be freckled all over, everywhere you could see, as if she was sprinkled with oatmeal." Alice Munro, "Images," from Dance of the Happy Shades 📖

I've been reading two stories from Alice Munro's Dance of the Happy Shades every day, one on my way to work and one on the commute back. My favorite so far is "An Ounce of Cure," a tender, lighthearted, and feminist coming-of-age story about a young girl healing her broken heart. Reading on the train > staring at my phone on the train! P.S. I finally tried the kiwi on oatmeal combo, and it's divine 🥝

“Here — you’ve earned a drink — something from the Three Broomsticks. You won’t have tried it before –” Lupin pulled two bottles out of his briefcase. “Butterbeer!” said Harry, without thinking. “Yeah, I like that stuff!” – Remus Lupin, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
⚡️
Of all of the delicious things mentioned in Harry Potter, Butterbeer is definitely my favorite. There’s something particularly magic about the idea of drinking a Butterbeer in the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade village and I love that it always seemed to mark moments of friendship.
⚡️
This Butterbeer Frozen Custard is my interpretation of the original drink, made into a creamy, scoopable, lactose-free and refined sugar-free treat.

Wax apple 蓮霧, soy milk 豆漿, and a red-bean matcha roll 紅豆抹茶瑞士卷蛋糕—a delicious Hong Kong breakfast from a while back!

"She didn't like the taste of her coffee. You know, they have coffee in the middle of the morning. She took one sip and said there was something wrong with it. Which was nonsense, of course. There couldn't have been."

I just finished reading Willa of the Wood and I ended up loving it even more than I expected. I don’t want to give too much away but it deals with some really important issues like how people can be trained to ignore the suffering of others by being taught that anyone who is different from them is bad. This book is a really beautiful, moving read and I highly recommend it. Two foods that are frequently mentioned throughout the book are the blackberries that Willa eats when living in the forest with the other night-spirits and the cookies that she tries when she visits the world of the day-folk. I decided to bring together the worlds of the night-spirits and the day-folk and made oatmeal blackberry chocolate chip cookies and wow, they are so good!

“Finally he slammed down three bucket-sized mugs of mahogany-brown tea in front of them and a plate of his rock cakes. Harry was hungry enough even for Hagrid’s cooking, and took one at once.” – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
⚡️
Throughout the Harry Potter books, Hagrid’s cooking is something that seems best to be avoided. Particularly his Rock Cakes, which are hard enough to chip the teeth of whoever eats them. My version of Hagrid's Rock Cakes has been updated to be Paleo and teeth-friendly. They're the perfect accompaniment to a steaming mug of tea. Or, given the sweltering hot heat right now, an iced tea or coffee.

#throwbackthursday to this summery #oatmealbowl I had for breakfast in Chicago, back when it was spring and I was still reading Barbara Johnson's essay on Melville's "Billy Budd!" Perhaps Moby Dick is next? 🤔🐳 .

dEATs: 1/2 cup oatmeal + 1 cup hot water (I cook instant oats in the microwave! Takes a min~), topped w/ frozen berries, oranges, @nature_valley granola, & @dannon yogurt 😋

"There were two beverages offered, both un-iced: Pepsi-Cola and native rum. The Pepsi-Cola was served in plastic Pilseners. The rum was served in coconut shells."

"'The luxurious pleasure craft was going down, and my meaningless life with it,' said the essay. 'All I'd eaten for four days was two biscuits and a sea gull.'"

"On the stove the pan of water was bubbling furiously about the can of beans. Dr. Phillips lifted out the can with a pair of forceps, opened it, and emptied the beans into a glass dish. While he ate he watched the starfish on the table."

My favorite things about going back to Taiwan are—the food & the family! Pictured here is a book written by a good family friend on picture books, and breakfast: some mango 芒果, red dragon fruit 紅龍果, and a taro 芋頭 panna cotta roll 😍

“All three of them stared into the cauldron. Close up, the potion looked like thick, dark mud, bubbling sluggishly. “I’m sure I’ve done everything right,” said Hermione, nervously rereading the splotched page of Moste Potente Potions. “It looks like the book says it should… once we’ve drunk it, we’ll have exactly an hour before we change back into ourselves.” – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
