Oscar Special!!  In this unbearable stress and suspense of who will win best picture, best actress and all the other life changing awards, let’s cook a predictable and delicious cocktail party dinner. Several simple recipes to snack casually yet chicly as we cheer for our favorite nominees. We’ve managed to watch 14 movies with nominations (the 9 movies nominated for best picture as well as Blue Jasmine, Before midnight, Inside Llewyn Davis, Saving Mr. Banks and Prisoners).

Invite your friends over, make sure you have T.V or that your pirate live stream from a foreign country will work, and….. Action!


PS. The artwork is a weird collage of vintage playboys and photos from entertainment weekly.
