7 Tasty Books for When You Have the Munchies

Clean eating is great and all, but sometimes in life, you need to have a donut party. Or order a pizza with a tater tot crust. Or whip up an ice cream layer cake. You get the picture… sometimes you just need to indulge. And everyone has that one snack or dessert they’ll just never get enough of. That’s why we’ve put together this list: So you can gaze longingly at perfectly styled photos of your favorite munchies in these seven books.

1. Tacopedia: The Taco Encyclopedia by Deborah Holz ($30): Whether you like your tacos from a food truck or a traditional Mexican restaurant, this book has all the info you need about your fave spicy snack. With interviews, graphics, maps and more than 100 recipes, it definitely has the whole picture.


2. The Donut Book by Sally Levitt Steinberg ($15): Donut shops are stepping it up lately, with tons of super creative (and delicious) new flavors. This book captures all that goodness, plus the history of donut making, to give you an in-depth look at the world of donuts.


3. Fries! An Illustrated Guide to the World’s Favorite Food by Blake Lingle ($17): Who doesn’t love a good french fry? From hand-cut to the old stand-by McDonald’s variety, it’s a solid snack whenever you’re feeling the munchies coming on. And this book will definitely make you want an extra large fry immediately.


4. The Pizza Bible by Toni Gemignani ($30): From deep dish to wood fired to margherita, the pizza world is complex. Let an 11-time world pizza champion explain it all to you — and make your mouth water.


5. The Comic Book Story of Beer by Jonathan Hennessey ($19): Okay, so we know beer isn’t exactly a snack food per se, but it’s definitely in the snacking category. And this book is the perfect guide to the history of beer, with a twist — it’s written in comic book style!


6. Olympia Provisions: Cured Meats and Tales from American Charcuterie by Elias Cairo and Meredith Erickson ($40): If you’re feelin’ a little fancy in your snacking preferences, check out this book chalk full of facts about charcuterie.


7. Ladurée Macarons by Vincent Lemains ($40): Macarons might be somewhat new on this side of the pond, but there’s a rich history behind the sweet treat in France. Read all about the story behind this classic brand of macarons in this colorful guide.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
