Which HUNGER GAMES Character Are You? (plus a crazy-good recipe)

Published March 21, 2012

Tomorrow is HUNGER GAMESSSSSSSS!!! *toots horn and tosses glitter and cupcakes and baby unicorns around the room*

Of course I’m going to stand in line for the midnight showing (tickets acquired, thank you my lovely Sarah Kathleen) with all the crazies. I was thinking of going as Haymitch since I’m old and sometimes grouchy when I’m up late, plus I like to throw things at people. Which means I’d be the awesomely fun person in line launching an arsenal of bread and meds at the Katniss look-a-likes. (Hmm…there’s possibility in this plan.)


Alas, I cannot be Haymitch. I just took this HUNGER GAMES character quiz and, apparently, I am Cinna! (How very cool of me, I know. He was always my favorite. Even after he…you know—SPOILER CENSORED FOR THOSE WHO’VE NOT FINISHED THE SERIES—)

So now I have to rethink my plans, because for as awesome as Cinna is, how does one “be him” in a movie line? Does one walk around fixing the braids of the Katniss look-a-likes and trying to rip off their leg hair and measure them for clothing sizes? Uh, no thanks. This…I will have to think on.

In the meantime, I command you to rush over and take this quiz so we can see which HUNGER GAMES’ Character YOU ARE. Here’s the link:



As for the rest of you, Preciouses, I offer a pie recipe. An insanely good one that’s even better when you realize what’s in it. Or rather what’s NOT in it. It’s everything my kids (dairy-allergic) can eat, and what I (sugar-sensitive) prefer. The super sweet Vickie Motter introduced me to this amazing chocolaty pie (from Chocolate-Covered Katie’s healthy dessert blog), and now I have a slight addiction to it. (Read that as I have a serious addiction to it.) She also introduced me to this homemade, cane sugar-free, three-ingredient chocolate, which I used to make the pie (it gives a tasty coconut flavor). So if I need some sort of chocolate addiction intervention in the next few weeks, you’ll know who to blame. And while you’re at it, check out Vickie’s agenty blog space and book reviews. You’ll like her.

No cane sugar. No dairy. No gluten if you prefer (which I don’t, so I made mine with crust :0)). But you’d never know it was missing any of those. I swear. Oh, and per Vickie’s suggestion—let the pie refrigerate for 12 hours for best flavor. I tried a slice around six hours and then after 12 just to see what she meant, and I completely agree. After 12, the tofu had absorbed the flavor all the way. Also, I added a bit more agave than the recipe calls for and used almond milk for the non-dairy milk. So…yeah. Have at it:

    Hmmm, me too Cinna…. you’d best pull out your gold eyeliner and neat, yet professional outfit. I am about to try another recipe very similar to yours…. but no tofu. I will let you know. And me, I must be Cinna’s mama… cause I am not going till Friday afternoon’s showing. ;)

    Heheheh…Lisa, you make me laugh! And gold eyeliner? *eyes makeup bag* I may have to go searching in between work hours tomorrow… Oh, and this recipe you speak of. We wants to know how it tastes, Precious.

    I was totally honest and scored Katniss! :) Nice! :) Great contest and totally drooling over your recipes pics.

    Katniss?!!! That’s very awesome, Juju. :0)

    I can only guess that checking ‘creative’ and ‘defiant’ among the other many, many boxes (it seemed to go on forever) is what also earned me Cinna! Funny, when discussing the books, he’s one of the characters whose name I can never remember.

    Fun fun fun! I got that I’m most like Peeta and Rue. I love them both so I can take that! Peeta was probably my favorite along with Cinna and Haymitch and Finn. Okay I can’t choose, all the characters were written so well.

    Have fun at the midnight showing. It’s going to be a couple weeks before I see it because I don’t want to fight with the crowds!

    I got both Johanna and Katniss…. cool.

    Very nice recipe… thanks for sharing.

    So, I’m Rue. I actually think that fits pretty well, only I tend to be more of a leader, and I’m not nearly so awesomely skilled as she is. To be honest, I would die right away in the games.

    I got Katniss as well, which you know, is awesome, cuz’ she kicks you-know-what! But, I was really hoping for Finnick, so I could have further proof that he is my soul mate. :p
    Also, thank you for posting such delicious looking recipes. I have so many I need to try now!

    The recipe was amazing and I am in the midst of posting to my blog. Stay tuned!

  11. 03.24.2012 / 11:07 am


    Ok so I got Rue. Which is strange because I distinctly remember clicking on “vulgar” and “sarcastic”. To be honest, I pictured myself as more of a better looking Haymitch, minus the alcoholism. Le sigh.

    Will how about that . . . I am most like . . . Cinna too! I liked him and thought he was a very, very, sexy handsome man—loved the gold eye-liner, thinking of having James wear some of that. Kept thinking Katniss should fall in love with him. Loved that gentle kiss he gave her before she went up in the tube and the way he said he believed in her. What a guy. And his creativity with the fire on her dress, sizzling, baby! I want a dress like that.

    I must have been attracted to his character because he’s a lot like me, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!! Or is it that I’m like him . . . :o]

    OK, Mary dear, here is the post and the new almost like yours recipe….. :)

    I want that pie! I’m drooling over here.

    Heheheh…Rob, that made me laugh. :0)

    Jade, from what I know of you online, that doesn’t surprise me. I would’ve picked those two for you! You’re always so sweet!

    Tania, based upon what I know of you through your blog, I can totally see it. Very kick-butt in a casually cool way. You go, girl. ;0)

    Mariel, I’m giggling. And since I’m Cinna I’d get to fix your gorgeous hair before you went to die in said games. How morbid. But…slightly awesome.

    Kristen, I’m with you on the Finnick thing. *le sigh*

    Lisa, I saw it!!! And now I totally want to try it.

    Kati, hahahaha!

    Diane, that image of James in gold eyeliner is burning in my mind. I’m laughing. You’re too funny, my dear. ;0)

    Kelly, I want some more too. *grin*

    I love the quiz! I wanted to be Katniss- but I am Cinna and I am happy with that, too. I am not quite sure how I scored that since I am not very on the cutting edge of fashion. But- I am imaginative and like to take risks for what I believe in. :)

    Your post made me laugh- I loved your idea about throwing bread. lol.

    That recipe looks awesome. not only do I want to try it- but I have two friends (one with allergies and one with a child with allergies) who I think will like it as well. Yeah! Thanks for sharing!

    I love that perspective on Cinna’s character, Jess! And that’s definitely something I admire (and aspire towards) in others–the courage to take risks for what one believes in. Such a beautiful quality!!!

    Thanks for dropping by. Have a fabulous week!

  18. 05.9.2012 / 7:12 pm


    Cinna too. Yussssss. I sort of knew that was going to happen….I’m simply not emotional enough to be anyone else :D Although, truth be told, I’d like to be Peeta. He’s just so good.
