Hello, readers! I hope your new week has started off well.
With the arrival of a new week, Finding Wonderland kicks off another week of
content with another edition of Top Ten Tuesday.
17: Top Ten Yummy Foods
Mentioned In Books (Does a character eat something you’d love? Or maybe the
book takes place in a bakery/restaurant that makes yummy things? You could also
talk about 10 of your favorite cookbooks if you don’t read foody books.) –

discuss another of my hobbies: baking! Or cooking. But like all the rest of my
pursuits, this one is of the amateur nature and isn’t anything I work at to
become a “professional.” Instead I enjoy discovering new recipes and trying new things without having to have any know-how of
the science behind cooking or trying to build a new recipe.
mentioned, I do enjoy new recipes, all of which is fueled by the many amazing
Instagram feeds I follow (or you know, the “old fashioned” way, and I Google
it). IG feeds from food bloggers who know how it’s done. Some of my recent
favorite finds include a chocolate recipe that this non-chocoholic girl thinks is divine; a butternut squash skillet meal that’s as tasty as it looks; and
a salty (and sweet!) treat sure to satisfy those salty foodies.
recent recipes finds, let’s take a look at the books featured in this list. Before
we do that, while on the subject of foodies, I will say, one of my recent reads
saw the heroine ordering one of my favorites: a southwest salad. Because who
doesn’t love those yummy tortilla chips drizzled in the spicy southwest
dressing? Back on topic. Let’s (for real this time!!) have a look at the books.
Because, they’re pretty awesome too – or they sure look to be.
cover? (#WaffleFan) Check. Cute storyline? (#Bookworm) Check. Obviously the
fact that I haven’t read this one is a travesty. Amazon | Goodreads
Rachel’s novels (and enjoyed so many), this Lowcountry series is one I haven’t.
This one features a chef as one of its two main characters, so it fits nicely
with today’s topic. Amazon | Goodreads
so technically, this book doesn’t rock food on its cover, but there IS a food truck, so that totally counts.
Plus, this book sounds darling. Amazon | Goodreads
trilogy about an Italian family, and their many
(many!) meals together. Plus, the protagonist and her brother own a
restaurant. In short, this book (series) will make you want all the food. Amazon | Goodreads
fact that I’m embarrassed to admit I’ve yet to read this book (which I hear is
a Matson favorite), I decided to remind myself of its presence because ice cream. What better reason need there
be? Amazon | Goodreads
it’s a. a Café Mocha (K-cup) or b. a Starbucks Frappuccino. I’ve simple never
acquired a taste for the stuff. That said, that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate
a “cute cover alert” featuring a girl holding a coffee! Amazon | Goodreads
tell one about a chef, but it’s so much
more than this. It’s a tale of sisters and family and learning to forgive, and
“let go.” Amazon | Goodreads
I don’t know. I mean, yes there IS an apple on the cover (which fits with the
topic) BUT I have strong suspicions one wouldn’t want to take a bite out of
this particular apple. #LetsBeHonest #PoisonApple Amazon | Goodreads
that doesn’t feature food ON the cover, but its heroine, Grace is an aspiring
chef. (Plus it’s partially set in Hawaii – that’s forever a great
attention-grabber.) Amazon | Goodreads
do I know much about it, but how cute is its cover? Plus that color palette is to
die for. Amazon | Goodreads
one a while back, and then opted for something else. Don’t let its chocolate
coated cover fool you. This one has some weighty issues to deal with if the
synopsis is an indication. Amazon | Goodreads
one releases next year, but I’m stoked about it. A friend recently recommended
it, which makes me all the more excited for the story inside. Amazon |
with today’s topic, these are a few I discovered. Do you enjoy cooking? What
new recipes have you discovered? What books/topics did you feature today?
