Bite Notes

  • Pair Rocket Boys with a big bowl of soup beans from Ronni Lundy’s book, Victuals. Whether you cook them with or without meat, they’re the perfect accompaniment to this comforting read.
  • Try Ree Drummond’s recipe for Eggs Norwegian in honor of Tracy K. Smith’s poem of the same title.
  • Pair The Sol Majestic with Aunt Renee’s Chicken Soup from Julia Turshen’s cookbook, Small Victories.
  • Mix up the delicious sounding Banana Chocolate Quinoa Bars from The School Year Survival Cookbook by Laura Keogh and Ceri Marsh.
