Guest Post: Abria Mattina, Author of Love Among Pigeons

Today I'm excited to welcome Abria Mattina here to A Bookish Affair as part of the Love Among Pigeons to talk about one of her favorite snacks to eat while reading (let me just say, we think on the same wavelength). Don't forget to enter the giveaways to celebrate the release of Love Among Pigeons.

Romantic Reads Snack

Some books, like incredibly stinky cheese, are simply meant to be paired with wine. Others are meant to be paired with chocolate, or with the taste of summer barbecue, or perhaps with a warm mug of herbal tea.

I write books that make people hungry, and those books also happen to be heart-squeezy romances that should really come standard with a dose of chocolate. I’d like to share one of my favourite romantic reads snacks: a single-portion recipe of eggless cookie dough, safe to eat raw.

I first stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest, where I get most of my holiday cooking ideas these days. I like to soften the chocolate chips a bit first, so they’re all gooey.

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

The end result is a ball of doughy goodness about the size of your palm. It’s a perfect single serving. So grab a romantic read like Wake or Love Among Pigeons,
a snuggly blanket, and some good old-fashioned cookie dough, and settle in for a night of reading.

  1. I think, the book deserves that the readers read it. Pigeons are such a beautiful and innocent bird, I want to know about them more and more.

  2. This is delightful and very special. I am captivated with the book and would enjoy it greatly. Novellas are simply ideal. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

  3. I do like companion stories/novellas, especially when I really enjoyed the original story. This way I can revisit the characters that I enjoyed reading about originally.
