Lucky Recipes for Friday the 13th!

If you’re a superstitious person, you might be a little nervous that today is Friday the 13th.  I’m not a huge believer in those kinds of superstitions, but you won’t find me walking under ladders or breaking mirrors very often, either!  If you think that today will bring you bad luck, then counter it with some good luck!  We come up with a list of some traditionally lucky recipes.  Check them out after the jump.

A Lucky New Orleans Dessert

First off, we have a cake that we blogged about a while ago during Mardi Gras.  It’s called a King Cake and there’s a lot of tradition surrounding it.  You’re supposed to bake a small plastic baby into the cake, and whoever ends up getting the piece with the baby will receive good luck.

Good Fortune in the New Year
Moving on to a tradition from the other side of the world, Greek New Year’s Bread is similar to King Cake.  In this case, a coin is baked into the bread.  Whoever finds the coin in their piece of bread will have good luck for the entire year! Not too shabby.  (Click here for the recipe.)

A Recipe4Living Original
Okay, I’m not sure what the story is behind this recipe, but it’s called “Lucky Chicken” and it was added to Recipe4Living by one of our users.  They say, “This calls for ingredients that everyone should have in their cupboards or in the refrigerator. “  Maybe that’s why it’s lucky- you just happen to have all the ingredients already!  (Click here for the recipe.)

A Chinese Treat
Fortune Cookies might not necessarily be lucky, but they can certainly be the bearers of good news.  I got one  a few weeks ago that said I would be “unusually successful in business.”  Not just very successful.  UNUSUALLY successful.  Awesome.  Try making some chocolate-dipped fortune cookies and fill them with your own fortunes- lucky ones, of course!  (Click here for the recipe.)
