Harry Potter

The Harry Potter Cookbook: Muggles learning the wizardry of cooking.

There’s a long and frustrating story behind my daughter’s new Harry Potter Cookbook, and the kids and Mark all like to laugh at me about it.

What’s up?

Well, I have a horrible habit of hiding Christmas gifts so well every year that one or two get missed and are found when cleaning or organizing after Christmas. (Yes, I do clean and organize once in a blue moon.)

This May, I discovered that I’d forgotten about the Harry Potter Cookbook we bought for Erin.

When Erin came to visit a couple weeks ago, the first thing she wanted to see was her Harry Potter Cookbook.

It really is a beautiful book – and the recipes do work!

Erin posted about her lovely Harry Potter cooking day on Facebook and I’ve stolen the images for this post.

Her choice of menu?

  • French Onion Soup
  • Chocolate Truffles
  • Coconut Fudge

Hmmm, do you think she has a sweet tooth like her Mom?

Poor her.

First, let’s check out the truffles.

They look so yummy!

The dish that really caught my eye and woke my taste buds was the French Onion Soup.

Athena after the French Onion Soup

Athena, why are there two pieces of cheese toast missing? I hope Erin got them.

For family reasons, Erin has decided to move back to Chilliwack in two weeks and will be staying with us temporarily until she finds a new job.

Perhaps she’ll take pity and make us some? Please…?

PS. Unfortunately, there are no pictures of the fudge since Erin did not have a candy thermometer and had no way of gauging temperature. Perhaps she could use the runny fudge as a topping on cookies, toast, etc.???
