With a name like Sweet Evil, this book was just begging me to make a Pages & Pairings post out of it. Of course, I played off of the “sinful” and “heavenly” themes of the book for two desserts that will make you drool.
For some reason, I tend to pick desserts for every book…dangerous pattern? Yes, but who cares?!
Pages & Pairings: Sweet Evil
Pages & Pairings is a new Read.Breathe.Relax. feature that matches up our favorite book and stories with tasty food and drinks. Reading should be a full sensory experience!
In these posts I’ll include links to the recipes so you can make these tasty treats yourself.
Eat, read and be merry!
Ingredients of Sweet Evil
One of the main themes of Sweet Evil was the idea of fighting one’s inner nature. Anna must fight her secret heritage: she’s part demon and it’s supposed to be her job on Earth to tempt humans into sin. The problem is, she doesn’t want to. Her mother was an angel, and Anna has a deep desire to do what’s right.
And, she probably could without much trouble if it wasn’t for Kaiden Rowe – the demon of lust who she happens to be dangerously attracted to.
Sweet Evil’s menu includes:
Sinful Dark Chocolate Cookies
Dark chocolate is sin in liquid form. It’s decadent and rich and delicious. These cookies from Divine Baking look absolutely mouth-watering. Check out the recipe on her website.
For Anna, I think these cookies would represent Kaiden and the other demons and everything that she’s supposed to be doing with her life. Fighting it is basically futile though (I mean, have you SEEN the picture of these cookies?!), because Kaiden is one the opposite side of the team…and he’s the only thing Anna really wants.
I will definitely be making these cookies, and will give you a full report once I’ve
eaten my way through the dough tried a few!
Lemony Angel Food Cake
Anna battles out her base desires and wins for the most part. If I were her, I’d reward myself with this little goody – Martha Stewart’s Lemony Angel Food Cake. Much less sinful that dark chocolate cookies, but it does have a zing with that lemon.
Although I’m not really sure what will happen in the second book, I hope it’s just as decadent and rich as the first…plot-wise and food-wise.
Eat, read and be merry – Sweet Evil style!
