The new Grinch Movie is out, and it looks fantastic, though I haven’t had time to go out and see it yet.  It’s definitely in the plan for this holiday season and so are these amazing Grinch Brownies!   I’ve got a few more Grinch Themed treats you’re not going to want to miss out on, like this super simple Grinch Fudge.

Of course popcorn is always a popular treat when we watch movies at home too, and I like to serve it up movie style in these Jumbo Popcorn Buckets.   It just makes it that much more fun.

Join our Love on a Plate Facebook community to make sure you never miss out on any of the new recipes.  There are also live Quick Cook Vidoes, Meal Planning Tips,  Entertaining recipes and so much more!
