Everyone who has watched an episode of Gilmore Girls knows that you can’t do anything without snacks. Given that Lorelai and Rory Gilmore—the show’s mother-daughter namesakes—seem to have bottomless stomachs and insatiable appetites, it was only a matter of time before someone compiled their favorite foods and recipes into a cookbook.

Kristi Carlson, a foodie and Gilmore fanatic, has launched a Kickstarter project to fund her recipe collection, Eat Like a Gilmore. Currently, the project has 97 backers who have pledged roughly $4,000 out of her $20,000 goal, with about a month left. Carlson plans to divide her cookbook into three sections: foods from a small-town diner, foods to serve at a Friday night dinner, and foods you may serve at a charming inn. Carlson cites several infamous Stars Hollow recipes, like Sookie’s magic risotto, as well as some of the far-fetched Gilmore creations, like a s’mores wedding cake, all of which she will test and attempt to recreate in her recipe anthology. Plus, prepare to finally cook and taste the pure deliciousness of a burger from Luke's Diner.

If all of this is making your stomach grumble, you might consider backing the project. Carlson plans to develop at least 60 recipes along with a recipe tester, to make sure the book is full of fun foods for everything from a movie marathon to a fancy holiday party. While you wait for the book to go to print, you could grab a few bags of candy (Pop Tart appetizer optional) and have a Gilmore marathon tonight.
