PS I Love You - a #FoodnFlix Round Up of Recipes


Welcome to this month's Food n Flix Round up!  Participants watched the Rom-com,  PS I Love You!  Thanks for joining in the fun!

Wendy from A Day in the Life on the Farm was the first to submit her recipe this month!  Wendy made a delicious Spaghetti a la PS I Love You inspired by all of he take out containers strewn about Holly's apartment in the movie.  Wendy adds:

I was disenchanted with the film.  Not because it was a bad film but because I had the movie I wanted to see playing in my head the entire time I read the novel.

I'm with you Wendy, I was underwhelmed too!  Good things a yummy pasta can come out of the deal!

Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla was inspired by a little romance in the part of the movie that took place in Ireland making: Prelude to a Tryst: Pasta Con le Sarde.  Camilla adds: 

I enjoyed P. S. I Love You, the book, but I'm going to say something that I rarely say: I vastly preferred the movie. 

There are marked differences between the book and the movie that almost make it a completely different story! For starters, movie Holly was much more likeable than book Holly.

So Happy you loved this pick, Camilla!

Debra from Eliot's Eats has our next dish, Whiskey-Cherry-Pecan Cookies.  Debra says:

I found the film extremely sad but uplifting at the same time... I liked the film better than I liked the novel which is hardly ever the case.

Having also read the book and watch me movie, I have to agree - though I was very mixed about novel and movie (more on that later).

Finally, my own submission.  I was inspired by a brief scene where Gerry was eating a corned beef sandwich from a take-out container.

That was all the inspiration I needed to create this tasty Corned Beef and Gouda Sandwich. And I have to admit, I wasn't a huge fan of book or movie - goes to show that sometimes even the host can pick a dud!

Please join us in April as we watch Peter Rabbit!


  1. Well, it's all about quality and not quantity this month. :) It's a great group of recipes. Thanks for hosting. I did enjoy this round!

  2. I did enjoy the novel so you didn't pick a dud in my opinion and the corned beef sandwich would have been my choice had I waited until after St Pat's day to post. Thanks for hosting Amy.
