Christmas Bundt Cake, Regency Style

Don’t you think guests would fall in love with this Christmas Bundt Cake? A bundt cake makes any cake look more festive; and the floral and ribbon touches evoke the Jane Austen setting for this month’s food film.

It’s Food ‘n Flix time again! In this monthly group a host picks a movie of their choice that pertains to food. Everyone watches the movie and then makes a recipe which the film inspired. It can be any recipe you want. This month’s pick is hosted by Kimberly at Coffee and Casseroles, who she terrified us into watching the movie The Jane Austen Book Club, for which I prepared a Christmas Bundt Cake!

Carrot Curry Canelés, a savory treat

Savory Carrot Curry Canelés are wonderful flavor packed curry bites, beautifully baked in a quintessential French fluted shape.

It’s Food ‘n Flix time and this month it is also a very special cross-over with Cook the Books! In both groups this month two host picks the same movie/book that pertains to food. I prepared for the book/movie “The Hundred Foot Journey” a fusion Indian/French recipe: Carrot Curry Canelés

To participate we had to either read the book or watch the movie, or do both. Then participants made a recipe inspired by the film. It could be any recipe you wanted. Both groups are a lot of fun so consider joining!

Cheesy Garlic Party Bread for the 5th Food Film Marathon

How do you get everyone running to the buffet table? Serve a pipping hot bread laden with fresh mozzarella, minced garlic, butter, and parsley.

Hosting home parties, the Canadian Thanksgiving, the upcoming arrival of Halloween, followed by the American Thanksgiving, and after that Christmas, New Year’s Eve and insert-your-local-holiday-here. It is that time of year to start prepping your menu plan and finding the perfect party recipes. You can never start too soon!

For me, the perfect party food is one that requires a small number of ingredients, one that is easy and quick to prepare – preferably ahead of time -, and that once you put it in the oven your guest are swooning over the smells coming from the kitchen. This Cheesy Garlic Party Bread absolutely checked all these boxes. It truly was the ideal contribution for my 5th Food Film Marathon which took place a couple of weekends ago.

Butter for Food ‘n Flix

Welcome to the cut throat world of butter carving in Iowa! Butter, a comedy about sex, power and spreading the wealth. There’s going to be a meltdown!

I bet our group leader Heather is relieved. I am so very honored to be hosting again this month’s edition of Food ‘n Flix … and I DID NOT choose a bride/marriage movie for the month of June (as I did last year). This month we are going down a silly route combining art, competition and sculpture with the movie Butter. Feel free to join our group, just watch the movie and then head into the kitchen to make a dish inspired by the film.
