In this 1945 holiday classic, Barbara Stanyck plays a journalist, “one of the country’s most famous food writers. In her columns, she describes herself as a hard working farm woman, taking care of her children and being an excellent cook. But this is all lies. In reality she is an umarried New Yorker who can’t even boil an egg. The recipes come from her good friend Felix.”
Barb watches this movie every Christmas. If I were a recipe blogger (or magazine publisher), I’d try to come up with the recipe for every dish referenced in the film. A clever and imaginative challenge, if I do say so myself.
