I used to obsess over the food in the Redwall books-- we tried to make things like strawberry cordial and some of the other sweets.

I was always interested in trying some of the food from The Redwall series. The foods sounded so delicious, I couldn't wait to try them. I have found a recipe book for the foods, but have yet to purchase it.

Has anyone read the book Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously by Julie Powell.

It is a great book that was made into an equally great movie. I like when a movie closely follows the book.

I have never tried any of the recipes by Julia Child. But I want to!! My fear of failure is what holds me back. I mean, c'mon, Julia Child IS the piece de resistance of cooking!

If you're a Patricia Cornwall fan, this is the cookbook for you: Food to Die For: Secrets from Kay Scarpetta's Kitchen. I've tried a number of the recipes for meals cooked by Kay in the books. They all turned out well.

Oh yes I have, but more often, I try food after seeing them in a movie. My taste buds salivates after reading about a food or seeing food on the television.

When I learned that there's an IHOP in the Philippines, we tried their pancakes. I only known of the said restaurant through Fifty Shades of Grey when I read the book and was dying to try their pancakes ever since that.

I'm not the best cook, so I've saved recipes to try with my more talented relatives.

Someone created a recipe book based on food mentioned in The Chronicles of Narnia; I really wanted to try some of the savory dishes.

In the original run of American Girl Samantha Parkington, a rich girl raised by her grandmother in 1904 New York, ate watercress sandwiches and they sounded like great summer snacks. I am still frustrated I've never been able to find watercress.
