There\u2019s so much to love about our favorite films but anytime there\u2019s mention of food or drink we tend to get even more excited. That\u2019s why we love it when a great movie actually explains how to make something tasty on screen. We\u2019ve gathered together 5 of our favorite recipes from films below. 1. Fried Green Tomatoes A fresher fried treat would be hard to find! We love this combination of fresh flavor and crunchy fried coating that this dish offers. From the film of the same name this one is a real classic. Get the recipe\u00a0right here. Flickr 2. Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa From the movie\u00a0Steel Magnolias\u00a0comes this extremely simple recipe. Truvy tells the other ladies: \u201cThat\u2019s simple, you don\u2019t need to write that down. That\u2019s a cup of flour, a cup of sugar, a cup of fruit cocktail with the juice. And, you mix and bake at 350 \u2019til golden bubbly.\u201d She then explains that she serves it over ice cream to \u201ccut the sweetness\u201d but, having tested this one out, another trick is to substitute some fresh fruit for the canned stuff. It probably goes without saying, but just in case: the flour should be self-rising. Flickr 3. Taters The classic line from\u00a0Lord of the Rings; The Two Towers, \u201cboil \u2019em, mash \u2019em, stick \u2019em in a stew\u201d remains the simplest description of how to generally fix potatoes we\u2019ve ever seen. You could do all three and end up with a potato soup fit for an elf.\u00a0This recipe\u00a0is very hearty! Flickr 4. Rock Cakes The tasty little cakes from\u00a0Harry Potter aren\u2019t technically made on screen or discussed by recipe. However, they make such a great number of appearances in the\u00a0Harry Potter\u00a0films that we gave them a pass. This simple recipe combines flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, and one egg with raisins for a treat that hopefully won\u2019t be anywhere near as hard as Hagrid\u2019s. Get the full recipe\u00a0here. 5. Manhattans in a Hot Water Bottle From the classic film\u00a0Some Like It Hot\u00a0starring Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe comes this ultra simple recipe. Vermouth and bourbon and ice if you\u2019ve got it! Though most recipes call for sweet and dry vermouth, bitters, and cherries, Sugar just didn\u2019t have a stocked bar on that Prohibition era music tour! Oh, and it probably improves the flavor to mix this drink in a shaker instead of a hot water bottle. Enjoy this classic scene from the film below. https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?vxq1QFVrNxfk Credits: 12tomatoes.com Share this story on Facebook with your friends.
