They didn’t speak again but sat in disbelief and wonder as the cookies, made with butter, sugar, flour, eggs, and a dollop of exasperation, slowly cooled on their tray.

Books about food are some of my favorites. I blame being raised on Food Network, but, let’s be honest, you don’t have to know how to proof dough, mix up icing, or candy lemon peels to enjoy a story about sweets.
Here are a few books that revolve around sweet treats that you should definitely check out:
- Baker’s Magic by Diane Zahler
- Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman
- A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd
- The Doughnut Fix by Jessie Janowitz

The Doughnut Fix by Jessie Janowitz
When Tristan’s family moves from New York to the middle-of-nowhere town of Petersville, it seems as though everything’s changing for the worse. Their new house is haunted, there are no restaurants, and there’s nothing to do until school starts. But when Tristan stumbles across rumors of the town’s famous life-changing doughnuts, he believes he’s found a way to make a change for the better. All he has to do is earn the recipe.
But this problem, the doughnut problem, wasn’t made-up, and if I messed up this time, I’d be messing up something real.
Happy Pi Day! I have a love-to-hate relationship with math, but I do love a good pun and a theme to work with.
