VIDEO: True Blood Season 7 Finale Episode 10 (Thank You) Sneak Peek #2 – And More!

August 21, 2014

Is Sookie Stackhouse Just One of God’s Mistakes?

true-blood-season-7-episode-10-sookieHere we have it: the very last sneak peek video of HBO’s True Blood EVER! In this video we find Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) questioning whether God makes mistakes, and wondering if maybe she is one of them.

Under the sneak peek video, we have some new release promo stills from Episode 10 (entitled Thank You) of True Blood Season 7.

Also, don’t forget to place your bids on your fave True Blood props and costumes in the ScreenBid auction that is running right now. Currently, Eric Northman’s (Alexanderskarsgard) throne has reached $7,700 dollars, but if that is out of your budget, there are still plenty of items priced around the $100 mark.

Finally, don’t forget that you can’t have a True Blood finale without some of Gran’s home-baked cooking! Why not whip up Adele Stackhouse’s (Lois Smith) famous pecan pie that Sookie sobbed over in Season 1? You can find the recipe by clicking here.

Synopsis (revised slightly from the one displayed in previous articles):

Sookie Stackhouse weighs a future with and without Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). Eric Northman and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) embark on a new enterprise, while Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) faces the consequences of her actions. Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) embraces his new life; Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) comes upon an unexpected inheritance.

HBO’s True Blood Season 7 Finale – Gran’s Pecan Pie Recipe

August 20, 2014

A Recipe to Get You in the Mood for the True Blood Finale:

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) cries into Grans pie in HBO's True BloodSo here we are, at the very end of HBO’s True Blood and we are crying like Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) did after her Gran died all the way back in Season 1. In tribute of this sad event, I am reposting my recipe for Gran’s Pecan Pie, so all you truebies can cry into their pie while watching the True Blood Season 7 finale!

Gran’s Cryin’ Pecan Pie

 

Ingredients

Pie Crust

1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup confectioner’s sugar
113grams cold, unsalted butter, chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Pie Filling

395gram tin sweetened condensed milk
60grams brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsps Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur (or 1 tsp of vanilla extract)
1/4 cup maple syrup
Pecan halves, to decorate

Gran's Cryin' Pecan PieMethod

  • Add all the pastry ingredients to a food processor and whiz until totally combined.
  • Grease a pie dish and, using your fingers, press out the pastry dough until smooth.
  • Bake in the over at 340 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Add all the pie filling ingredients (except the eggs) to a pan and heat on a medium temperature until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Turn off the heat and allow to cool for five minutes.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking quickly to prevent them cooking unevenly.
  • Turn the heat back on to low and whisk until the mixture thickens into custard.
  • Pour into the pie crust and decorate with pecan halves
  • Refrigerate until set and serve with either whipped cream or ice cream
  • Enjoy! (But don’t forget to cry while eating it.)

If you are making this pie, why not take a photo or video of you crying into it, and post it (or the link) in the comments below!

True Blood Season 6 Finale: How to Throw a Last Minute Finale Party!

August 15, 2013

Only Days to Go to the True Blood Finale – it’s Time to Plan a Party:

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) eats Pecan Pie in HBO's True Blood Season 1, Episode 6Many trubies are lamenting the fact that HBO’s True Blood Season 6 is drawing to an end. With only 10 episodes instead of it’s usual 12, the time to plan a finale party for True Blood has come around a little quicker than expected!

After all, it seems like just yesterday we were planning out True Blood premiere party. Perhaps we could use the ideas from that party? Yes, you could, but if you are inviting the same people, then it’s time to think about all the new foods that have been inspired by True Blood’s Season 6.

So to entertain and surprise your friends, why not try:

Food

  • For starters, no True Blood finale party is complete without Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) gran’s pecan pie recipe. You can make one from scratch using our exclusive recipe. Or, if you are pressed for time, why not buy a ready made pie base and just cook up the pie filling?
  • Why not try some raspberry liquorice dipped in chocolate? In Australia, these are called raspberry liquorice bullets – and since Governor Burrell (Arliss Howard) created vampire-stopping bullets, these red-centered treats would be a great way to represent this
  • Even though you probably had these treats at the premiere party, it’s probably time to heat up more cocktail frankfurters and call them Lilith’s (Jessica Clarke) henchwomen!
  • Balls of cotton candy on sticks would be a great way to represent Sookie’s magic fairy light balls
  • There has been so much blood this season, so anything that is red, or can have globs of jelly added to it will help fill your table. Bite-sized pancakes topped with whipped cream and then drizzled with runny strawberry jelly is a quick way to add some bloody colour. Red velvet cupcakes are always great too!
  • Our favorite screamer, Ginger (Tara Buck) was back with a vengeance in Episode 9, why not track down some candied ginger or ginger nut cookies to celebrate?
  • Make fairy freckles – melt down some white chocolate, blob it down in bite-sized circles on baking paper and shake on lots of sprinkles or edible sparkle
  • They may be fiddly to make, but shoe cupcakes would be a perfect addition to your True Blood finale party – just be careful not to stab anyone in the head with them!
  • Extra spicy buffalo wings – say hello to Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) finally meeting the sun!
  • If you have some extra time and are game enough to attempt making your own candy, why not try some bloody lollypops? It’s a great way to represent the Blood Will Spill promo poster.

Drinks

  • No True Blood Season 6 finale party can be complete without a case of Raging Bitch beer!
  • Ditto a few cases of Tru Blood – especially considering the Hep V contamination this year. To represent this, why not drop a strawberry or blueberry in each bottle? Or to make it fun, just ‘contaminate’ a few bottles and see who ends up ‘dead’ among your crowd when Episode 10 ends.
  • Want to water a large trubie crew? Then fruit punch is the way to go. Make it red, fizzy, filled with vodka and berries and stick a name tag on it that says ‘Talbot’ (Theo Alexander).
  • So needles seem to be a prominent theme this year – which means it’s time for red jello shots!
  • How about a drink with the name: Eric’s Bare Bottom? It this tickles your fancy, then head on over to Grapefriend.com for the recipe. You can do so by clicking here.

What do you have planned for your True Blood Season 6 finale party? Let us know in the comments below.

And to get you inspired, here’s the clip of Sookie eating gran’s pecan pie from all the way back in Season 1:

True Blood Season 6 Premiere Party: What’s on the Menu?

June 12, 2013

Get Inspired With These Easy (But Bloody) True Blood-Inspired Ideas:

True Blood CookbookThere are only a few days dragging by until June 16th and the Season 6 premiere of HBO’s True Blood. While #WaitingSucks, it also gives you the opportunity to get your premiere party sorted ahead of time.

Normally I reserve gran’s pecan pie recipe for the finale, so I can cry along like Sookie (Anna Paquin) did in Season 1, but there are plenty of other ideas to whet every truebie’s appetite!

For starters there are a couple of great recipe books out dedicated entirely to True Blood-inspired cuisine:

True Blood Drinks & Bites is the newest recipe book on the market, but there is also True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps. NotQuiteNigella.com also offers a sumptuous spread that will moisten your creative juices. Heck, even Charlaine Harris offers a recipe for the infamous Chocolate Cake that Caroline Bellefleur makes for special occasions in the Southern Vampire Mysteries books (the series which inspired HBO’s True Blood.) You can find that recipe (along with several more) in Harris’ The Sookie Stackhouse Companion.

While all these recipes are awesome, there are still plenty of creative ideas left to inspire your True Blood premiere party.

  • Hello my name is TalbotWhy not use Talbot (Theo Alexander) as inspiration and make jello or fruit punch in a crystal candy jar? If you have any gummi body part treats or chocolate eyeballs left over from Halloween, even better.
  • Speaking of Talbot – remember when he served blood as soup? Tomato soup would be great, but, as an alternative, why not try chilled beetroot soup?
  • Layfayette (Nelsan Ellis) is known for his special burger recipe at Merlotte’s. While burgers are unwieldy at a party, why not make Lafayette meat balls? Dunking little wooden toothpicks in red food colouring (bloody stakes) completes the ensemble.
  • Hot dogs dipped in plenty of tomato sauce (using more bloody stakes of course) – say hello to Billith!
  • Of course, thanks to the emergence of all the fairies in Bon Temps in Season 5, why not serve the kindergarten classic: fairy bread?
  • When thinking of True Blood inspired food, it’s a MUST to serve red velvet cupcakes. (Well that’s my excuse anyway!) But why not #ShowYourFangs and add some candy teeth to the top? Or, alternatively, try some bloody splatters of red food colouring thickened with corn syrup.
  • Did you know that you can purchase food grade plastic syringes (without the needle top, of course)? These can be filled with Tru Blood jello shots and left in a bowl (or you can re-use Talbot if everyone has finished with the fruit punch).
  • Did the jello shots make you thirsty? Well, the classic Tequila Sunrise goes perfectly with Arlene’s (Carrie Preston) hair.
  • STILL thirsty? My fave Tru Blood cocktail involves Tru blood, vodka, triple sec and lemon juice. At Club Fangtasia, they call that a Plasmapolitan!

Have you got any other suggestions? Let me know by commenting below!

Me and Jesus was hangin’ out the other night when I got off work at Merlotte’s.  Lawd knows I sho didn’t want to come home and cook but my man was hungry and I had to hook him up.  I got ready to whip somethin’ up when Tara called.  Lawd, dat girl can’t do nothin’ right since Eggs done gone and got himself killed.  I ain’t far from tellin’ her she need to come with me to the head doctor.

Once I took care of dat, I came back home and started looking around da kitchen and found just what I needed to get a quick snack poppin’.  Lawd, Jesus loved it too.  He ain’t never had no po-boy, but I have. Shiiii, I gets at least one every time I go to N’awlins.  Matter of fact, a friend of mines down there showed me how to make this hear mean one.

Here ya go – enjoy did easy meal:

Ingredients:

2 slices of American Cheese

Lettuce

Tomato (sliced)

Mayonnaise

Spicy Creole Mustard

Louisiana Hot Sauce

Child, ya gotta put the link of sausage in a pot of boiling water and let it boil til it rises to da top and is heated well through and through.  While ya doing dat, cut dat bread lengthwise and spread da mayo and mustard on it.  Put da cheese on da bottom piece, remove dat link from da water and drain it.  Den ya gonna slice da link lengthwise and place it flat against da bottom piece of bread, on top of da cheese.  Top with lettuce and tomatoes and sprinkle some dat Weeziana hawt sauce (‘cuz I knows you hookahs be liking things spicy), and close da bread.  Cut da po-boy in half and serve with pickles, olives and chips.

We tried to get ol Andy to come hang out wit us, but youse know that ain’t happen.  Andy too scared to get outta his element.  He like to stay to his housde right der in Bon Temps.  Anyway, Sam called and said he need me back to work, so I went ahead on and went back up der.  He been getting busy lately and Sookie not der to help.  She been in Dallas organizing a search party to look for Vampire Bill.  I sho hope he okay.  No telling what dem ruthless vampires done to him.  You just never know when it comes to dem.

Tear apart chicken and put in food processor.  Once chopped, put chicken in large bowl.  Grate egg and add all other ingredients.  Mix together well and season to taste.  You can spice things up a little by stuffing a tomato with the mixture, eating it on crackers or making sandwiches.  Youse gonna love dis recipe and ya can thank ya boy later.  It’ll be a hit at parties or to feed da family on da weekend.  Quick, simple and tasty!

By da way, in case you was wonderin’ what so “special” bout dis recipe, it’s cuz of my secret ingredient.  Oh well, I can let ya in on dat – it’s da chicken dat you use.  Ain’t nothing else make dat chicken salad have as much taste as dem chicken’s dat been cooked slowly wit all dat seasoning.
