Join us in the kitchen with The Princess and the Frog | #FoodnFlix

Hello! Remember me? I know I've been MIA for a long time, and for that I'm sorry. There's an explanation...really there is...and I may even get around to telling it one of these days. But, not today. Today I'm here to announce that I'm hosting this month's edition of the Food 'n Flix Club! And, since moderation isn't really my thing, I'll also be hosting Fandom Foodies this month (they connect, in case you had any doubt).

This month I invite you to watch the 2009 Disney flick, The Princess and the Frog. Set in the New Orleans bayou, this flick is teeming with inspiration for you to take into the kitchen this month!

I hope you'll forgive me if I'm a bit rusty, but I promise to break out the oil, both in the kitchen and here on the blog (and over at Food 'n Flix) this month. I hope you'll join us watching, creating, and eating some tasty vittles (or maybe consuming some magickal cocktails) all October long!

p.s. Did you know that The Princess and the Frog is a derivative of the classic Grimm Brothers tale, The Frog-King? (It is!) Please feel free to share your recipe/post with the #GrimmGrub Fandom Foodies link-up this month, as well!
