Ah – I love today. The Academy Awards. All the glitz and glamour while I’m at home eating dinner in my less than glamorous pjs. Personally, I am vying for Gravity to win Best Picture. Wow, that was a great film. My goal is to one day have an Oscar viewing party because it would be fun to get all dressed up, play some games, and watch as actors try to beat the always dreaded fade out.
For those of you who are lucky enough to have enough friends around you to actually throw a party, or maybe you’re like me and you’ll have a solo one, here are some of my favorite movie night treats.
We are talking about the movies! Because coconut oil is so delicious on popcorn – we’ve made a lot of recipes. Whether you’re in a Dark Chocolate and Peppermint mood or a Sweet Chili kick or a Chocolate Salted Carmel binge, there are some easy recipes for you to follow. Or you can ditch the kernels altogether and opt for Lani’s Popped Cauliflower.
These bite-sized appetizers will make sure everyone is still fitting into their Spanx at the end of the night! Have fun with the cheese, use brie and a jalapeno jam for a nice twist on this classic.
Who can resist a good Girl Scout cookie? Dazzle your guests with these homemade version of the iconic cookie, especially if they didn’t buy any this year (like myself). Perhaps dip them in edible gold leaf for dramatic impact.
My fiancé’s mother made this for New Year, and now I look for any excuse to make them. I love how just one is sweet enough to satisfy the craving. Plus, there’s rum, yum!
