Hook- Rainbow cup cake

The film acts as a sequel to the 1911 novel Peter and Wendy by J. M. Barrie, focusing on a grown-up Peter Pan who has forgotten his childhood. Now known as “Peter Banning”, he is a successful corporate lawyer with a wife and two children. Hook kidnaps his children, and Peter must return to Neverland and reclaim his youthful spirit in order to challenge his old enemy.

Peter Pan has become Peter Banning (Robin Williams), a 40-year-old mergers and acquisitions lawyer with a permanent scowl on his face and a cellular phone in his belt. Banning has lost any memory of being Peter Pan, and he is also in danger of losing his wife Moira (Caroline Goodall) and two children, Jack (Charlie Korsmo) and Maggie (Amber Scott). Peter and his family travel to London to visit Granny Wendy (Maggie Smith) who recalls Peter’s lost youth and asks him, “Peter, dear, don’t you know who you are?” With Peter’s children asleep in the same bedroom where the original Peter Pan story began, there is a blinding flash. Peter comes into the room to discover a note from Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman), informing Peter that he has kidnapped his children. Granny Wendy now tells him who he really is and encourages him to re-discover his happy thoughts, transform himself into the Peter Pan of the past, and go rescue his children. With the encouragement of Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts), Peter recalls the birth of his son and once again takes wing. Then it’s off to Never Land to rescue his kids.

Interesting Food scene: When the Lost Boys begin feasting from empty plates and dishes, Peter is confused. He quickly realizes that its part of their incredible imaginations, so he joins the fun, and an epic food fight takes off.

Groundhog Day – Lime Tart with Lemon Crust

Groundhog Day is a 1993 American comedy film. Murray plays Phil Connors, an egocentric Pittsburgh TV weatherman who, during a hated assignment covering the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, finds himself in a time loop, repeating the same day again and again. After indulging in hedonism and numerous suicide attempts, he begins to re-examine his life and priorities. The trip goes awry on day two when Connors discovers he is reliving the same exact day while others in the town are unaware of the repetition. Cue life examination and character development.

One of the iconic scenes in the film is when Phil’s pig out at the diner. Phil had come to terms with the reality that he will repeat the same day, day after day, which meant that he could eat whatever he wanted, as much as he wanted and have no impact on health, weight gain etc. May be, many people on a weight loss program would love to repeat the same day, day after day and eat what they want with no consequences.

While watching this memorable food scene, munch some Lime Tart with Lemon Crust.


Lemon Crust

  • 1 large lemon
  • 1 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon(s) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) Salt
  • 6 tablespoon(s) butter, cut up
  • 2 to 3 tablespoon(s) ice water

Lime Filling

  • 5 to 6 limes
  • 1 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup(s) sour cream
  • Confectioner’s sugar for garnish



  1. Prepare Lemon Crust: From lemon, grate 2 teaspoons peel and squeeze 2 teaspoons juice. In food processor with knife blade attached, combine lemon peel, flour, sugar, and salt; pulse until blended. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add lemon juice, then ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing until moist clumps form. Gather dough into a ball; flatten into a disk. Wrap disk in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. On lightly floured surface, with floured rolling pin, roll dough into 11-inch round. Ease dough into 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Fold overhang in and press dough onto bottom and up side of pan so it forms 1/4-inch rim above edge of pan. Refrigerate or freeze until firm, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Line tart shell with foil and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake 15 minutes. Remove foil with weights and bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until golden. If crust puffs up during baking, gently press it down with back of spoon. Cool in pan on wire rack. Reset oven control to 350 degrees F.
  4. Prepare Lime Filling: From limes, grate 1 1/2 teaspoons peel and squeeze 2/3 cup juice. In bowl, with whisk, beat lime peel and juice with sugar and eggs. Whisk in sour cream.

Meet Joe Black -Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Now that you’ve stocked up on water, soup, and booze, to help battle fears of Armageddon, curl up on the couch and spend a few hours with your favorite food movie. How about Meet Joe Black, American fantasy romance film.

The cycle of life on Earth hangs in the balance when Death becomes emotionally involved in this romantic fantasy. William Parrish (Anthony Hopkins) is a tremendously wealthy and powerful man who oversees a worldwide multi-media empire. Despite the loss of his beloved wife, William is content with his life, and he’s very close to his two daughters, Allison (Marcia Gay Harden) and Susan (Claire Forlaini). One night, as William is fighting a hostile takeover of his company and Allison is planning an elaborate party to celebrate her dad’s 65th birthday, William begins displaying the symptoms of a severe heart attack, and he is visited by a mysterious stranger, Joe Black (Brad Pitt). Joe is actually the angel of death, who has taken the form of a man who recently passed on to pay William a call. It seems that William is due to move on to the next world, but he doesn’t want to go. Joe, on the other hand, is curious to know what life is like for mere mortals, so the two men strike a deal — William will have some time to get his affairs in order, and Joe will wait and see what it’s like to be a human being. Joe decides that he likes it very much when he falls in love with Susan, but negotiating the slippery slopes of romance is no easier for Joe than for any ordinary man.

When Death (“Joe Black”) tastes peanut butter for the first time, it’s one of the greatest moments he’s ever had, so he immediately goes for round two and three and four. Enjoy the movie with Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Pancakes.


  • 1 cup(s) multigrain pancake mix,
  • 1 large egg
  • cup(s) all-natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup(s) milk
  • teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 1 cup(s) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter


  1. Heat oven to 200 degrees F. Stir the pancake mix, egg, peanut butter, milk, vanilla, and chocolate chips together in a large bowl. Melt about 1 teaspoon butter in large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Pour three to four 1/4-cupfuls of batter on the heated skillet to form pancakes and cook until the tops bubble and the edges begin to crisp.

Mildred Pierce – carrot cheese cake

Joan Crawford won an Oscar for her turn in this film noir as an unhappy mother and housewife who becomes a restaurant owner. Based on the James M Cain novel, Mildred Pierce sees a pretty twisted mother-daughter relationship unfold: Mildred’s daughter Veda is a social climber who wants more stuff than her family can afford. There’s a murder mystery and a fair amount of drama, all with baking in the background.

So while Mildred Pierce is a drama about the plight of the American woman of the 1930s and 1940s, who is constantly subject to the whims of the lecherous, selfish men around her, it is also a tortuous account of a mother sacrificing everything for the happiness of her children (maternal melodrama) and a murder mystery that begins at the end and then winds its way backwards to discover the truth (film noir). Also in Mildred Pierce extended, loving shots of food offer us insight into characters, their experiences, and their emotions.

This is an amazing combination. You can say, that’s the cinematic equivalent of carrot cake cheesecake. Have you ever had that? They actually mix carrot cake together with the cheesecake!

16 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

When cake is cold, prepare Pineapple Cream Cheese Frosting.

Black Swan – Vanilla Cake with Strawberry Frosting

In Darren Aronofsky’s latest psychological thriller, and perhaps his best film to date, Natalie Portman stars as Nina Sayers, the uptight ballerina whose perfectionism serves as her biggest flaw.

Black Swan is this year’s feature show for a prestigious ballet company in New York City. But instead of having two separate ballerinas to dance the parts of the black and white swan, one dancer will have the privilege, and challenge, of portraying both.

Black Swan

Although Nina’s dancing is flawless, company director, Thomas Leroy, can only see her as the white swan. Her moves are perfect, yet rigid, and to accurately portray the black swan, Nina will really have to have to lose herself.

With a face full of makeup, Nina approaches her director and asks for the part. At first he declines, admitting he has already cast another dancer, but Nina shows him a daring side of her that changes his mind.

In the midst of preparing for the big production, a new dancer has joined the company. Her name: Lily. Her dancing: mesmerizing, as if she isn’t even trying–and it’s no secret that what Nina is lacking for the black swan, Lily makes up for.

Watch as this suspenseful thriller illustrates the intense pressures of being a professional ballerina (both actresses dropped nearly 20 pounds for the film!), and as Nina loses herself–literally, becoming what she never thought possible.
