Who is your favorite fairy tale character? What recipe would you pair them with?

Snow White

Snow White can’t resist apples. But ever since her poisonous run-in with a wicked witch, she is considering healthier recipes. When the seven dwarves visit, she cooks a miniature recipe for Apple Pie Apple.


Cinderella has learned that pumpkins can be formed into something special, like a horse-drawn carriage, or even a healthy meal. This princess stays optimistic as she slurps on pumpkin soup.

The Gingerbread Man

When the holidays are over, the Gingerbread Man gets to relax — and his comfort food is not shocking. This character starts every day with a plate of gingerbread pancakes.


When Rapunzel was locked away in a castle, she had to keep her mind and hair strong. To stay wise and grow out her famous silky-smooth locks, she snacked on Grilled Salmon with Peach and Avocado Salsa.

Beauty and The Beast

The one thing that Belle and the Beast had in common when they first met was their love of roses. Because this plant led them into a romance that brought out the best in the Beast, the couple has embraced all of its other benefits as well. Learn what roses can do for you.

Little Red Riding Hood

Many variations of Little Red Riding Hood have been told throughout history, but one thing is clear. Red cares about her grandmother and loved ones. When she visits with family, she brings a gift of wine and a basket or Butternut Squash Bread.

Goldilocks and Jack O' Tales

There are some selfish children in the fairytale forest. Jack trades the family cow for some beans, steals a giant's treasure, chops down the beanstalk, and makes Cannellini Bean Pasta Soup just for himself. His friend, Goldilocks, is also famous for eating everyone’s Nutty Rice Porridge. How rude!

Sleeping Beauty and The Princess and The Pea

What's a girl gotta do to get some rest? Aurora, of Sleeping Beauty, eats Cranberry Cherry Sauce at dinner because its tart cherries contain melatonin, which helps her sleep. Spring Pea Soup with Mint is the recipe that the princess of Princess and the Pea uses to end her day.

Alice and The Mad Hatter

In Wonderland, things can get a little mad. When the land's quirky characters need to regroup, they organize a Mad Tea Party. Which tea should you be drinking?
