Round-Up: The Killer Angels Inspired Recipes #BookClubCookBookCC Round Up

For the February #BookClubCookBookCC I invited everyone to read and cook dishes drawing inspiration from The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara and the recipe Civil War Cherry Apple Cobbler with Sweet Vanilla Custard. Here is my invitation post to the participating bloggers!



A little background if you don't remember my original kick off post in July, a group bloggers organized by Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla (click the link if you want to join the fun!) draw inspiration from a book and recipes published in The Book Club Cookbook which was provided to bloggers by Judy, Vicki,and their publisher, Tarcher-Penguin. Each month, a blogger selected a book and The Book Club Cookbook offers several suggested recipes or the blogger can create a recipe inspired by the story.  At the end of the month the host or hostess posts a round-up and gives away a copy of the book. 

Here are a list of my fellow participating bloggers/hosts:

Cheese Curd In Paradise               
Life on Food       
The Pajama Chef              
The Spiffy Cookie             
Things I Make (for Dinner)           
Tortillas and Honey         

Let's kick off the recipe round-up and start with Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm. Wendy submitted Johnny Cakes and drew inspiration from The Killer Angels and The Little House Cookbook. 



 Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla submitted a savory option called Pickle-Lily. I had not heard of this before and it a way to pickle seasonal vegetables!


The next submission comes from Erin of The Spiffy Cookie. Erin shared a recipe for Cherry Apple Cobbler. Erin opted to top hers with a delicious scoop of vanilla ice cream!



Emily of Life on Food submitted this amazing looking Skillet Apple Cobbler. Emily describes imagining it cooking over an open fire and that sounds fantastic!



Andrea of Adventures of All Things Food shared Civil War Cherry-Apple Cobbler with Sweet Vanilla Custard.  Andrea enjoyed the book and the recipe was a big hit!



Sarah of The Pajama Chef shared a recipe for Homemade Jerky. Dried beef was a common food eaten by troops during the Civil War and she even goes into the process her family uses to make a delicious jerky. 



The finish out the round-up, I shared a recipe called Hospital Ginger Bread. Ginger Bread was commonly given to troops as a comfort food. This recipe also won a blue ribbon at the Wisconsin State Fair in 1860.


Thank you for following along with the #bokclubcookbookcc! See you next month!
