Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted at (un)Conventional Bookworms where readers share food or drink quotes from their current reads.
Over on her site, Lexxie says: So many of the books we read have food or drinks in them, some I’d love to try, and others I’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes… If you want to participate, you can grab my logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me in your own post.
The idea of this feature is to:
- Share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read,
- as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not.
- Share the title of the book it happened in,
- as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something.
- Each week there is a link-up for the current post so that it’s easy to find other participants as well.
- Add your post to the linky.
My quote today comes from Tea With Milk and Murder by H.Y. Hanna.
Now I looked down at the plate in front of me with interest. It wasn’t an elaborate cheesecake—the top was covered with a smooth layer of cream cheese and sour cream, decorated only with a cluster of raspberries and blueberries, their rich pinks and deep purples showing vividly against the snowy white. I picked up the fork and carefully cut off a section, feeling the fork bite down through the crunchy biscuit base, and then put it in my mouth. It was heavenly—creamy and sweet, with just a touch of tangy zest, and the juicy flavours of the berries mingling with the buttery sweetness of the base.
Umm… yes please! The recipe for this cake is included at the end of the book. I made note of it and hope to try it soon. It seems pretty straightforward and I’m looking forward to sweet, tangy, creamy flavours!
What about you? What are you looking forward to eating today?

Ah… the victim was an artist and she died in an art gallery.
