If the news of Netflix's imminent Gilmore Girls: Seasons reboot isn't enough to satiate your Stars Hollow nostalgia, you'll soon be able to eat like one of its residents. Kristi Carlson, a self-proclaimed California eclectic and Gilmore Girls superfan, has launched a Kickstarter for a Stars Hollow-inspired cookbook called Eat Like a Gilmore.

Carlson writes on her Kickstarter page that the idea came last summer as "a means to combine two of my favorite things: cooking, and life in an imaginary world called Stars Hollow."

Carlson also says the cookbook is for her and people like her, "who recognize that food is its own quirky, ever-present character in that world." Many of the proposed recipes – from s'mores wedding cake to Rory's college special: "a sausage wrapped in a pancake, tied with a piece of bacon" – have been featured on the hit show.

The cookbook itself will split into three sections: The first will feature foods befitting of a small-town diner; the second will have upscale dishes appropriate for a formal "Friday Night Dinner"; and the final section will feature "foods [that might be] served at charming, eclectic, independent inns."

Launched on March 14, 2016, the campaign has already received over half of its proposed goal of $20,000. In the likely scenario Carlson receives more than her "break even" goal, she will add more recipes.
