Synopsis:  Do you ever yearn for roast turkey while watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation?

Just crack open The Christmas Movie Cookbook and discover sixty-five mouthwatering recipes to add joy to any holiday gathering. Recipes include:

-Chicken, Broccoli, and Cheddar Cheese Soup from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

-And much more!


My Thoughts: This has been one of the funnest and most entertaining cookbooks I have read up until now. Not only does it give you tasty recipes for your holiday season but also provides a holiday movie to read about for each one. A lot of them I had heard of and was taken down a memory lane trip but was interesting to find some I had never heard of and look forward to finding this coming seasons holidays and trying out the recipe to go along with them.

It also provides you with tips for throwing the best holiday get togethers you can like setting up your music list or how to arrange seating for any kind of party and lots more great tidbits you can mark off your checklist as you go.

Some of my favorites were... The Salted Caramel & Fudge Milkshake, The Orange Cinnamon Rolls, and The Burgermeister's Perfect Burger.
