Galaxy Bark: A Star Wars Bonus Recipe

Posted May 28, 2015 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Star Wars (May 2015) / 2 Comments

 I was really torn as to what to make for our Star Wars bonus recipe. Should I make another molecular gastronomy recipe? A skillet cookie Death Star? Admiral Ackbar’s “It’s a Trap” Wraps? In the end, I decided on this fun, easy Galaxy Bark from Life with the Crust Cut Off. Gotta love those funky colors…and the extra texture element added by the sprinkles! Plus, it’s chocolate, which of course directly translates to SUPER DELICIOUS. Enjoy!

Cloud City Cheese Puffs

Posted May 14, 2015 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Star Wars (May 2015) / 3 Comments


I’ve always believed that Cloud City is hands-down the most beautiful location in all of the Star Wars movies. And maybe it’s supposed to be. Maybe the stark contrast between the heavenly views and the city’s dark underbelly act as a reminder that things aren’t always as they appear.

Luckily, these cloud-shaped cheese puffs (inspired by a recipe from BHG) have all the light, fluffy delicacy of Cloud City’s ethereal panoramas without any of the dark downsides…as long as you don’t burn them! 😉

Raspberry-Mango Planets and Lemon Clouds: Celebrating Star Wars with Space-Age Food! #maythe4thbewithyou

Posted May 4, 2015 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Star Wars (May 2015) / 3 Comments

  Happy May the Fourth, aka Star Wars Day! Since Star Wars is our Movie of the Month, today is the perfect day to start our new menu. Up until now, I’ve always done menus based off of classic books, but there are plenty of awesome classic movies out there too. And I think we can all agree that Star Wars is classic enough to make the cut (plus, there are loads of Star Wars books, so…loopholes!). 😉

May I Introduce Our First Movie of the Month?

Posted May 1, 2015 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Hints, Teas / 1 Comment

I make no apologies for the punny title. PUNNY TITLES FOREVER!

April was definitely a fun month for food. The Pineapple Ticking Crocodile was a particularly rewarding leap outside my culinary comfort zone. But now it’s time to say goodbye to Neverland and set our sights on somewhere even farther away…

I’ve provided the photo hint for our May menu below. NOTE: In keeping with my blogging goal for this year of including a few classic movies in our menus, this month’s menu will be based around a movie, rather than a book.

Any guesses as to what our very first Movie of the Month will be, based on the picture?

If you need a final dose of Peter Pan before we head into the realm of sci-fi, swing by the book blog 101 Books to learn some Fascinating Facts about Peter! 🙂

 

P.S. We wrapped up our April menu yesterday by premiering our new Alison’s Wonderland Teas page (so feel free to order some if your teacup looks lonely).
