Month: March 2014

Happy Pi Day!

Posted March 14, 2014 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Holidays / 1 Comment

For those who haven’t heard of it, March 14th (3/14) is National Pi Day, a day set aside in honor of the number pi (which is commonly abbreviated as 3.14). It’s kind of a big day at my house. The Mister wears his pi shirt, I bake a ton of pie, and we invite a bunch of friends over to watch Waitress (a movie about pie). Tragically, this has been a really busy week for us, so I haven’t had time to make truckloads of pie. In fact, I only had time to make one super-quick pie, so I knew I had to make it count. And that’s where this little beauty comes in…

I must confess, I’ve never been a huge fan of elves. Elegance and refinement aren’t really my thing (for more information, see last week’s post on the awesomeness of dwarves). However, I have profound respect for the elves’ ability to throw a party. While trekking through Mirkwood Forest, Bilbo and the dwarves stumble upon an elvish feast complete with music, dancing, and (of course) buckets of food.

Beorn’s Nut Bread and Fruited Honey

Posted March 6, 2014 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Book of the Month Recipes / 5 Comments

Personally, I’ve always felt like dwarves from fantasy books don’t get enough press. They’re fearless, rowdy, and unabashedly hairy. What’s not to love? But when it comes to culinary appreciation, you can’t beat a hobbit. I mean, we’re talking about a race of people who schedule their entire day around six meals. Talk about folks after my own heart! Thus, it is with great excitement that I introduce The Hobbit as our new Book of the Month!

Posted March 1, 2014 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Hints / 2 Comments

Well, folks, it’s the end of February, which means it’s time to bid adieu to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. As much as I loved cooking up Witch Hat Calzones and Cyclone Cookies, I’m super excited for March. I’ve got a great new Book of the Month in store for you! It’s got everything a great story needs: grand adventure, dozens of loveable characters, and lots of food! Of course, this made the menu a blast to plan. Join us next week for the first installment!

Can’t wait ’til next week? Here’s a hint… 😉
