Dear Mr. Potter,

We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Please find enclosed a list of all necessary books and equipment.

Term begins on September 1. We await your owl by no later than July 31.

Yours Sincerely,
Minerva McGonagall

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

This was the famous letter that started it all so this letter started all of us on our journey with Harry, Ron, Hermione, Neville, Ginny, Luna, and all the others through Hogwarts and beyond. This was when we entered the unknown wizarding world with Harry Potter.

So this was what made me fall in love with reading all over again. Funny story: I was actually against reading the books because I didn’t enjoy reading. When my mom was teaching fourth grade and I was in seventh, I would volunteer in her classroom. One of the boys kept telling me to read Harry Potter, but I didn’t. Then, when I stayed with my cousins, they had just gotten the Sorcerer’s Stone movie and we watched it. I was hooked so I immediately went to the school library to get the books and the rest was history.

Why Harry Potter Recipes?

Therefore, to say I love Harry Potter is an understatement. Half of my shirts are Harry Potter and I listen to the soundtracks almost daily. My oldest son came home from the hospital to the Gryffindor Common Room although now that’s my youngest son’s room theme after we moved. I also host a monthly Harry Potter Club. I’ve read the books and watched the movies so many times I’ve lost count. So yes, I have made my own wand. #hpnerd

When we started our monthly Harry Potter Club, I wanted to make foods and drinks that would go with the movies. I tried to go with the movie we were currently on, but that got too difficult at times.

Then, I decided since I have so many recipes, that July 2018 would be Harry Potter month in honor of Harry’s and J.K. Rowling’s birthday. And the month that the last two books were released. July is also the month that everything started for Harry and it’s the month that always makes me think of Harry Potter.

  1. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of your Harry Potter inspired recipes this month. As a fellow potterhead I’ve been collecting the recipes and I’m thinking about having a potter themed birthday for my son!

  2. omg the fudge! The FUDGE! I’ve also been collecting your harry potter (happy potter?) recipes and I’m thinking of having a themed party!

    1. The fudge is so great. I had some one time at school and my son’s teacher tried a bite and loved it so I made a whole batch for her and her family for Christmas 🙂

  3. I am not a big Harry Potter fan but I wonder what butterbeer tastes like. I have to try the recipe because I have no plans going to Universal Studios Japan in the near future.

  4. YOu had me at Harry Potter. Seriously I would love if at some point I could convince one of my kids to have a Harry Potter themed party so I could make stuff like this!

  5. I am so glad to see all these links together in one place, Stephanie! My girls have really been getting into cooking more this summer – I will have to show them this post when we’re back from vacation, and see which they want to try making first!

  6. Melanie williams

    YES!!!! This is amazing. I am such a fan and these are great ideas to create at home for sure xx

  7. The desserts caught my eyes because I have a sweet tooth that I’m trying to retrain. Those pumpkin treats look like a winner. Yum!

  8. Whoa what a great niche recipe round up! This would be an amazing resource for anyone throwing a Harry Potter themed party or event! Thanks for sharing!
