Pull up a chair, grab a bucket of popcorn, and tune in--the Emmys are here! We've picked our favorite top-contenders of this year and paired them with recipes that you'll love. Get started with this must-have, star-studded treat.
Game of Thrones
Make Sansa's favorite dessert and the dessert that the young lords and ladies love during tea time with our delightful version. These delicious Limoncello Pine Nut Upside Down Cakes earned a five-star reader and are a beautiful treat that match the theme of the elegant show.
Big Bang Theory
Make your own takeout with ease, and enjoy a little Big Bang Theory tradition while watching the Emmy's this year. You can find the too-cute boxes at most local craft stores.
Baking requires chemistry and so does, well, Walter White's drug production on the hit TV show, Breaking Bad. These cupcakes mimic the blue color of his infamous crystal meth, so try "baking" bad tonight with Over the Moon Cupcakes.
Whether you're on the go, or can't wait until you get home to eat your salad, like Hannah in Girls, we've got the perfect on-the go salad that's perfectly portable and incredibly delicious, just try and eat it with a fork
Parks & Recreation
On Parks and Recreation, Leslie Knope is fueled by coffee and sugar. Her love of waffles is no secret, so we thought Coffee Waffles would be a perfect tribute to Amy Poehler's comedy genius. Serve with maple syrup for breakfast or add a scoop of ice cream and caramel sauce for a fun Knope-approved dessert.
House of Cards
How is it that every time we think of Freddy's fictional BBQ joint our mouth immediately waters? Try redirecting your Frank Underwood-induced nervous energy to a plate of juicy ribs during the next House of Cards binge. You can continue to pace around the living room when your plate is clear.
If you thought the stately home was impressive, check out Kate Mitchell's take on the estate, made entirely out of gingerbread... and 100 candy glass windows. It's ok to drool around this showstopper, just try to avoid getting your drool on hand-dyed melted candy trees.
Don would certainly appreciate a good cocktail, though we're not sure he could wait the month it takes to age it. Trust us, it's worth it.
Are you one of the many dedicated to the story behind True Detective? Joined a book club as a result? We suggest this tasty dessert, but limit yourself to one color sprinkle to ensure you have the perfect Yellow King Cake.
Orange Is The New Black
"All I wanted was to eat the chicken that was smarter than all the other chickens to absorb its power. And to make a nice Kiev." Sigh. We hear you, Red. As you dream about what to do with that elusive chicken, consider stuffing it. A dead chicken tells no tales.
