Last Holiday Recipe Round-Up {Food 'n Flix}

I'm so happy that I was able to host Food 'n Flix once again, and to share one of my favorite feel-good movies, Last Holiday.  Now it's time to round-up all of the delicious recipes that some of my foodie friends were inspired to make after watching this movie.

The first dish that we see Georgia (Queen Latifah) cook is a recipe by Emeril Lagasse.  That is what inspired Elizabeth from The Law Student's Cookbook,  to try her hand at one of Emeril's recipes, this hearty Beef Stew.

Tina at Life in the Slow Lane at Squirrel Head Manor prepared Bananas Foster in a decadent, buttery, Brandy sauce.

Deb from Kahakai Kitchen also made Bananas Foster, but she turned them into a Thick Bananas Foster Shake.  With salty caramel to line the glass, and coconut milk and ice cream, for a tropical touch, you would never guess that this was dairy-free.

 "...In the spirit of turning possibilities into realities...and living like you were dying...and not being so afraid of living...", Girlichef offers us these sweet and indulgant Meyer Lemon Curd Brioche Crescents.

And lastly, my contribution...  I prepare this Tortilla Española (Spanish Omelet), because if I learned I only had 3 weeks to live, I would want to fulfill my lifelong dream of traveling to Spain, and feasting on all of the yummy tapas available.

For more Food 'n Flix fun, be sure to visit Spabettie, who is hosting this month's flick, "Big Night".
