This month I invited #bookclubcookbookCC members to join me in reading Peace Like a River and making Mrs. Enger’s Cinnamon Rolls with Coffee Frosting. Here’s my invitation post! For more info on this project, please check out this post by our fearless leader, Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla.
Since cinnamon rolls were the recipe of the month, I have to highlight those submissions first. 🙂 My Cinnabon Copycat Cinnamon Rolls are obviously my fave but we also had some other cinnamon rolls this month that I’d love to try too! 🙂
First up, we have Emily at Life on Food. She made the suggested recipe from the cookbook–Mrs. Enger’s Cinnamon Rolls with Coffee Frosting. Don’t they look so good? I wish I could have one right now! I will definitely have make this recipe one day!
Next, we have a twist on cinnamon rolls from Andrea at Adventures in All Things Food. She made a Cinnabun Coffee Cake! All the flavors of a cinnamon roll, sans the work. Great choice!
Erin from The Spiffy Cookie chose to combine the two main sweets of the book into one tasty treat! Her Peach Cinnamon Rolls look like a fabulous treat to have for breakfast or dessert. I love how she used jam to get that great peach flavor in the winter! Mmm.
Now that I’ve talked about peaches, I should share the peach pies of the group! Wendy from A Day in the Life on the Farm made a fantastic-looking Spiced Peach Pie! She even used peaches she canned herself. YUM. I wish I knew how to can! Wendy, want to come visit Tennessee this summer?!
Renee from Tortillas and Honey also made a peach pie. Her Old Fashioned Peach Pie just sounds like a dream! And I love that she used her mom’s recipe, from an old Betty Crocker cookbook. Since the book takes place in the 60s, that is so fitting. Great idea, Renee!
Since pancakes were mentioned a few times in the story, Sarah from Things I Make (for Dinner) chose to make Gingerbread Pancakes. They sound so festive and filling! I’m impressed with her creativity–it didn’t even occur to me to make pancakes, even though they’re one of my favorite foods. 🙂
After all that sweet, we need a little savory, right?! Thankfully two of our fabulous blogging crew complied! We have two versions of the potato and fish chowder the Land family enjoys for a birthday dinner. Yay! Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla decided to go the savory route. She drew her inspiration from one of the more mystical [yet sad] scenes in the book, where a pot of potato and fish chowder never seemed to run out. Though I’m not much of a fish person, her King of Soups sounds delicious!
Last, but not least is another version of this soup. Ashley from Cheese Curd in Paradise made a Red Potato Chowder with White Fish. Her Minnesota family loved this soup, and usually she would make it with fish her husband caught himself, but this time she was out and used cod instead. Impressive!
I wanted to share Ashley’s recipe last so I could also mention that she is the hostess next month, so stay tuned to Cheese Curd in Paradise to see what book/recipe she chooses for us in February! Thanks for following along with #bookclubcookbookCC!
