hey FFFers!  I’m super excited to host my friend, Jill Hackman, today. The second book in The Firebrand Chronicles is out and it looks fabulous!!

Jill knows how much I love food, and there’s some pretty cool things to eat in FLARE. I’ve asked Jill to share some with us! 

Hey, Jill! I’m hungry! Whatcha got for me today?

Hey, Pam!  hahaha! You’re always ready to try good food. Okay, here ya go:

As some of you know, Pam’s a big foodie, and her love of food shows up in her stories. I like creating unusual foods too—Spark introduced Brenna’s favorite cinnamon-and-sugar-topped pastry Kunkelsteuchen. In Flare, I again had fun and presented four new flavors to the reader.

Liberty berries are a spicy-sweet berry native to Ginselwyn, and they grow wild near Ho Mountain’s base. Tiny’s mom is a fabulous baker and puts them in muffins to give them a nice fruity “kick.”

Rason is a pack animal briefly mentioned in Spark, but in Flare, the reader learns the animal can also be made into burgers. It’s a lot like ground beef (but no, it doesn’t taste like chicken).

Fypex gum is a chewing gum made from the native fypex fern. With a mild raspberry and vanilla flavor, it’s similar to coffee— it contains a stimulant like caffeine that helps Brenna focus and control her ADHD symptoms.

Pupkissberries are another delicious fruit with a sun-ripened mixed berry and almond flavor. They are super delicious made into a pie. (The name for this came from my youngest daughter trying to say “pumpkin.” She either said pupkiss or big pickle.)

I hope this peek into the special foods of the Jasper Territory “seasons” your reading enjoyment of Flare.

 

                                  

 

Wow, Jill! We may have to put our heads together for a cookbook! I want to try every single thing!  hahaha! Thanks for stopping by and whetting our appetites!

Oh, I love how pupkissberries were inspired by her daughter! <3

I know, right? I think we all need to start calling a pumpkin a pupkiss. <3

Those sound like foods I want to try.
