In the kitchen with What's Cooking? | #FoodnFlix

The #FoodnFlix Club is creating recipes inspired by the Thanksgiving movie "What's Cooking" all November long!
Well, it's officially November - my favorite month. It's my birthday month. And it's Thanksgiving for us here in the states, and that just happens to be my favorite meal of the entire year. Our family Thanksgiving meals are the stuff of legends (seriously, people tell stories of all the amazing food we make and serve that day). We, and especially me, spend weeks dreaming, planning, and preparing.

So, this month I'm combining that passion with my other passion - creating food based on movies (or tv or books or music). I'm hosting the November edition of our "food and a movie" club Food 'n Flix with a Thanksgiving-centric film called What's Cooking?!

I find Thanksgiving movies to be few and far between, so I was pretty excited to stumble across this one. I bought the DVD from Amazon months ago (many, many months), but I haven't actually watched it yet, so I look forward to diving right goggles strapped tight!

If you're a blogger who would like to join us, we'd love to have you (new members are always welcome). Tune in on the last day of November to see a roundup of the recipes What's Cooking? inspired!
