Celebrating 5 Years of Food 'n Flix! #foodnflix

This month marks the 5-year anniversary of the Food 'n Flix Club. Join us for a celebration of food in film this September!

Five years ago today I announced the very first movie pick for my newly created project called Food 'n Flix. Five years! For a while, I hosted everything right on the Food 'n Flix Club site itself, but after seven months, I announced that Food 'n Flix was going on the road. I wanted to spread the hosting love, and let participants take turns hosting and therefore, selecting the monthly movie we'd watch and cook from.

It's been fantastic five years full of movies, food, drink, new friends, and inspiration! Some months we watch a full-on foodie flick, others months we have to dig a little deeper and put our creative minds to work with a pick that may not seem food-related at first glance. To date, 60 movies have sent us into the kitchen to create an inspired dish and related blog post!

In honor of all the fun we've had since its inception, I thought we'd celebrate with a 5-Year Anniversary/Birthday Bash of epic proportions...aka, there's not one single movie we are watching this month—you can choose from ANY of those previously viewed flicks to create your post!

Movies we watched and cooked from during the first 5 years of the Food 'n Flix Club! #foodnflix

Yeah, those movies you see up there are all the ones you get to choose from if you want to join in the fun this month (anybody with a blog is welcome to join in)! So, whether you've been in the club since the beginning, contemplating joining in for a while, or hearing about it for the first time today, there's no better time than the present to get in on the fun! Feel free to check out my previous Food 'n Flix posts for ideas and inspiration.
