I got Snack Hacks by Claudia Christian and Mark Michel used on Amazon. I was surprised someone gave it away, and it is in pretty good condition, just a couple of dings.
I have been a huge fan of Claudia Christian since she played Commander Susan Ivanova on Babylon 5. So, I was super excited to see that she wrote a cook book. I will have a link for the book at the end of the blog. It is not an affiliated link.
This cookbook is amazing! It has more than just snacks, it also has meals and desserts too! Plus, tips and tricks on preparing food. She also has stories about her past and interviews with other voice actors. It is more than just a cook book.
I love to read cookbooks that have more than just recipes in them. Especially, if it has info on my favorite celebrities. It is like reading their Biography, which I have been obsessed with lately. I loved that she talks about how she got into gaming and voice acting, and how she got into cooking. And she interviewed other actors as well and they shared some recipes. Mark Michel also shared his recipes too. It made it all seem more personal, which I love. She has some really great tips and tricks too, like how to cut a pepper. My favorite recipe is the homemade ice cream without a machine, I am definitely trying that this summer. Claudia Christian also gave some ideas on how to make the recipe a bit different, then she suggested that you try to make it your own. I thought that was so refreshing.
I do not think you have to be a geek, gamer etc. to enjoy this book. You do not even have to be a good cook, I know I am not. But, for those of us who are geeks and such, will love the extras in this cookbook. I highly recommend it, and hope she writes more of them!
