Food from the Big Screen

Have you ever watched a show or movie and thought, that looks delicious? I certainly have. Here are some of my most desired foods from the big screen (and how you might make them).

First, our appetizer. This must of course be Kronk's spinach puffs. Even though they almost burn, the spinach puffs just look so light and flakey, I just have to try them.

One recipe I found that doesn't look too hard is a variation on spanakopita in a Martha Stewart cookbook.

On to the main course. Let's do breakfast for supper and have Harley Quinn's Perfect Egg Sandwich. I am so on board for that cheesy goodness!

It seems like a simple enough recipe, like the one found in this grilled cheese cookbook on page 33. Just don't forget to add the dash of hot sauce.

As a side, Samwise Gamgee from The Lord of the Rings always manages to sell potatoes. Boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in stew, potatoes are always a great choice.

I think a classic guy like Samwise would use a classic preparation, such as roasted garlic mashed potatoes. To make this creamy goodness, check out The Humble Spud.

To drink with our spectacular meal, only Butterbeer from the Harry Potter series will do. I have not been fortunate enough to go to Florida to try the official recipe, but I think I can manage with this treat made at home.

We can still use a specially formulated recipe from internet sensation, Binging with Babish.

For our first dessert course, I need Tiana's beignets. Warm, sugary dough pockets are always the right thing to eat.

I imagine these hit the spot when craving other sugared dough treats like elephant ears or funnel cake. Try them for yourself.

Our second dessert, because we are treating ourselves, is Kaylee's Strawberry Shortcake, from the TV show Firefly.

Strawberries are a favorite of mine and I can't even image how good they would taste if I didn't have easy and regular access to them. Shortcake is such a simple and ever-so-tasty way to serve them.


Finally, the after-dinner drink. I think we need to go outlandish for this one and the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster fits the bill. Also, this drink from A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a lot of fun to say.

Though the movie makes the drink look a little intense, I don't see how one could go wrong with peach schnapps and orange juice.

And there you have it, the food that the movies make look oh, so delectable to me. Will you join me in indulging?
