Twilight Recipes

Okay, I guess these are kind of Twilight related, but I agree with TwiCrack by saying some are a real stretch. Here’s a cutesy little slideshow of all the recipes.

I thought this little recipe was original, but I think they over-exaggerated the potatoes just a little.

Grilled Strip Steaks with Sweet Potato Hash Browns

In Twilight (the four-book series by Stephanie Meyer), the teenaged heroine Bella Swan transfers to a new high school, where she begins to fall in love with schoolmate Edward Cullen, gets hunted by a blood-thirsty vampire who wants to kill her, and still finds the time to make home-cooked meals for her father Charlie, the chief of police in Forks, Washington. Charlie’s a meat-and-potatoes kind of man, so Bella prepares a fast steak and potato meal like the one in this recipe.

This is a very essential meal in the book Twilight and I respect the way they mixed it up, and I believe I might just try this one.

Fettuccine with Mushrooms, Tarragon, and Goat-Cheese Sauce

After saving her life for a second time, Edward Cullen takes Bella Swan to a quiet diner. Anxious for the waitress to leave them alone, Bella orders the first thing she sees on the menu, mushroom ravioli, and listens as Edward begins to reveal that he is a "vegetarian" vampire, meaning he chooses to hunt animals instead of humans for the blood that he instinctually craves. This quick and easy vegetarian pasta has a delectably rich-tasting sauce that clings to each strand of fettuccine and requires no cooking.

The lasagna is a classic in Twilight, and is often used. Not only in Twilight, but also Charlie tried and failed miserably making lasagna in the beginning of Eclipse.

Lasagna-Style Baked Pennette with Meat Sauce

Leftover lasagna gets Bella through a particularly busy week when she learns the truth about Edward’s vampire identity and past. This hearty, meaty baked pasta is chef Tom Valenti’s ultimate make-ahead meal. "It’s actually better the next day," he says. "I always make more than I think we'll need—and we always eat all of it."
The last few in the slideshow I’m not so pleased with, but it’s Twilight, so I’ll compromise.
