Alas, the internet proved I am not the only person to come up with this idea. I'd thought to do the classic prune stew in The Hunger Games, but it looks like there's a dozen of those on the internet.
Still, I think I'd have a lot of fun doing this (and none of the stew recipes looked like what I'd envisioned, so we may yet see that). I enjoy inventing recipes and I'd like to think I'm good at it. I haven't mentioned it on the blog, but I did have a recipe published at Better Homes & Gardens (it's here; byline's given in the Nov 2010 issue). I don't have any book reviews posting in February and I rambled about writing this week...so to launch off this new column, I want to post a new recipe every week of February. We'll get back to boardgames in March.
Any requests? If you're an author, I'm happy to whip up something from your book, or if there's something you've just always wanted to try, let me know! I want these posts to be interesting.
