Bailey Cates Bacon Peanut Butter Banana Cookies with dark chocolate added.

Bacon, Peanut Butter Banana Cookies – Inspired by the Magical Bakery Mystery Series by Bailey Cates.

Early on during the pandemic, I had a difficult time reading. I just couldn’t keep my attention on any book, and everything seemed stressful. After a few months went by, I realized that Bailey Cates latest Magical Bakery series book was out. Her books are always uplifting, and inspiring. They are never too dark, or heavy, just good clean reading that always allow my mind to let go of it’s burdens and get lost in the fantasy of the magical Honeybee Bakery .

The Blog so Far…

eBookFoodie Year One

Hollie | eBookFoodie

I started this blog one year ago, after several years of going home from work, day after day to an empty house. I was tired of cooking wonderful meals that I ate by myself and packing up the leftovers for my husband. In December ’18 I decided to start this blog as a hobby, to quiet a nagging voice inside my head to be creative again and to be productive. It went live in January 2019! I did several things I never thought I’d have the courage to do in addition to this blog! I started using Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram and posting on Facebook, and went to two WordPress events. I’ve always been hesitant to post about myself or my life, but when it comes to recipes and books, I find that I enjoy it!

Shady Characters ~ Puff Pastries!

Favorite FoodieBooks Friday!

Shady Characters by Keith Houston cover embossed with characters
Embossed hardcover of Shady Characters by Keith Houston
Shady Characters by Keith Houston cover jacket

These Pecan & Cinnamon and Hazelnut & Pecan Shady Characters Puff Pastries were inspired by one of my favorite books. Sh@dy Charac†ers – The Secret Life of Punctuation, Symbols & Other Typographical Marks by Ke!th H*uston.

It’s not really a coffee table book, but I use it as one. I like to see its funny, yet stunning title in bold white lettering embedded on the black long shadow of a giant white pilcrow floating on a bright red background. It’s a pretty jacket, over an exquisite white hardcover embossed with punctuation, symbols & other typographical marks, with black binding. The symbols stand out on the pages in bright red within the black text.

Fluffy Pancakes with Coffee Syrup

Favorite FoodieBooks Friday! Fluffy, Fluffy Pancakes, Coffee & Ghosts!

I needed some lite reading, so I looked at the books I’ve read in my Kindle library. Coffee & Ghosts by Charity Tahmaseb brought a smile to my face. I don’t remember if BookBub, Riffle or https://www.amazon.com/b?_encoding=UTF8&tag=ebookfoodie-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=a1bfa602bc01f37d684c43fdc9f90031&camp=1789&creative=9325&node=25">AmazonAmazon referred it to me about a year ago, but knowing how much I love coffee, how could I go wrong with a book titled “Coffee & Ghosts?” Anyway, re-reading Coffee & Ghost’s is just what I needed. I needed fluffy pancakes with coffee syrup!

Fluffy pancakes

They make a TON of coffee (and tea) in this book, and eat tons of buttermilk pancakes at the Springside Pancake House. I found myself inspired to make pancakes, but not just any pancakes, FLUFFY pancakes! Fluffy pancakes have been all over Pinterest lately. I like breakfast for dinner, but “husband” is not a fan. Too bad for him!

So now I’m overwhelmed and have basically stopped reading altogether! I need to get out of this slump, but what can I do? I know, I’ll bake Raspberry Lime White Chocolate Scones!

Fat Vampire Inspired Pizza

Favorite FoodieBook Friday ~ It’s time for Fat Vampire Inspired Pizza!

One of the first eBook series I read was Fat Vampire. Honestly, I hadn’t picked up a book in YEARS. My friend told me about eBook design and I was like… “What the hell’s an eBook?” So, I started using my iPhone Books app and realized that I could adjust font size, screen color, and I could even change the FONT. Whaaaaaat! This was a game changer for me! My eyeballs LOVE adjusting the font size, line spacing and brightness!

Update! Fat Vampire is coming to TV! On SYFY!!! I’m thrilled to say “I was reading that asshole’s books before everyone else knew him!” lol JT’s words, not mine.
