Love your mouth watering recipes, Jean. My favourite film star who's held my attention over the years is Sean Connery.

Love brownies! My favorite movie star changes so often, it depends on what I've seen recently. I just watched Battleship last night, so today I would say my favorite is Taylor Kitsch! He's just as yummy as brownies!!!

Tracey Steinbach said...

Sandra Bullock is one of my favorte actresses. I don't think I've seen a bad movie with her in it.

Ooooh, dessert secrets!! *rubs hands together in glee* I'm going to try the brownie one; already knew the pumpkin pie secret:)

I think Gerard Butler or Channing Tatum is my fave. I really don't go to the movies that often anymore.

Hey wait a minute--I didn't see the recipe for the banana split! I used to take my kids out for sundaes the last day of school & my then 9-year-old son had a double banana split. He never had one again. Favorite actor? Robert Downey, Jr. he's sooo sexy.Meredith

Wonderful tip for pumpkin pie. I'll be sure to try this next time I make one. (I still have frozen pumpkin in my freezer)

I never realized picking a favorite actor would be so hard. There are quite a few that I just LOVE. I guess I would have to go with Denzel Washington. I have not seen one of his movies that I did not love. He is just a really great actor.

I have a gluten allergy and my dietician gave me a great recipe that is for decadent chocolate cupcakes made with quinoa.

My favorite movie star? That's hard because I like all the old movies. I especially loved the Bob Hope and Bing Crosby "travel" movies.
