Cheese Biscuits

Ok, I’ll admit it…I’m a Hunger Games nerd and I love any and everything related to this awesome movie.  I read all 3 books in less than a week and when the movie came out I camped out in the lobby of the theatre for 3 hours just so we could be first in line to see the premiere.  Hey don’t judge me…I know I’m a little obsessed but hey I could be addicted to worse things right??  Just when I was coming off my HG high and life was returning to normal I saw an article about “The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook” I literally jumped out of my seat!  Okay maybe not literally but you get my point.

For those who’ve read the books, and not just seen the movie, you all know that food plays a HUGE role in the story line.  I think the author was trying to highlight some of the food/hunger plights going on in the world today.  I could go deeper but instead I’ll point you to this interesting analysis: http://www.shmoop.com/hunger-games/food-glorious-food-symbol.htm

These biscuits were all I could have hoped for.  Warm right out of the oven they were fluffy and melted in my mouth.  If you like the biscuits from Red Lobster these are pretty darn close.  Emily does a great job at transforming the most popular recipes, like lambs stew with plums, and making them into actual recipes that taste good.  It’s like seeing fiction come to life right before your eyes.  I can’t wait to make some more recipes from this cookbook!
