  • August 19th has been designated National Potato Day and really, could there be a more delicious holiday? Potatoes are a wonderful vegetable and can be prepared in a multitude of ways. You can boil them, bake them, fry them, mash them, roast them...ugh, man, do we want potatoes. The possibilities are endless!

    French Fries are by far one of the most popular ways to serve potatoes and legend has it that they were first introduced in the United States by Thomas Jefferson. Supposed during his term as president, he requested that the White House chef prepare “potatoes served in the French manner” for a dinner party. 

    Today we’re putting a literary spin on some french fries to bring you recipes inspired by books. The recipes below don’t list quantities, as you can use as much or as little of the toppings as you’d like.

  • Did you know that July is National Hot Dog Month? Probably not unless you work for Oscar Mayer or Hebrew National. But don’t fret, there’s still time to celebrate. So go out and buy your 10-pack of hot dogs and an annoyingly unsynchronized 8-pack of buns, then pick up one of these 6 books to show your appreciation for blended pork bits.

  • The ninth season of the rebooted Doctor Who may have come to a close earlier this month, but there’s still one episode to look forward to: the annual Christmas Special! This year will find Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor and his wife River Song reunited for a holiday adventure with plenty of snowy scenes, Christmas carols and Antlers. A week later, Sherlock fans get a new episode as well (after a two-year wait!), as John and Sherlock find themselves in 1890’s London for a Victorian holiday special airing on January 1st.

    With these two incredible specials on the horizon, what’s a fan to do? Gather all your nerdy friends and celebrate amazing British television with a WhoLock Holiday party… or two! Here's how:

  • Lembas bread is a well-kept secret of the elves, and if Legolas is to be believed, "one small bite is enough to fill the stomach of a grown man."  While we can't guarantee the exact same dietary satisfaction, we can say this is one tasty lembas bread recipe that goes with everything and is easy to make. Sure to be a hit at your next Middle Earth-inspired celebration!
