And The Academy Award Goes to. . . .

Being a Hollywood Gal and all (well I do actually live NEAR Hollywood :-)), I thought I would write a post in honor of the Academy Awards Ceremony this evening (Anyone have any big plans or fun parties they are attending??) I thought I would post a list of some of my all time favorite movies and if you haven’t seen them they are definitely worth checking out.  And as an added bonus, I am sharing a yummy AA worthy recipe to enjoy while you watch the big event. Have Fun!

Caviar Dip
Barefoot Contessa 2001

This is a yummy, elegant easy dip that seems like a perfect fit with the Academy Awards and a nice glass of bubbly. It’s somewhat light, refreshing, tasty dip and great when served with old fashioned potato chips, Enjoy!

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons freshly minced dill, plus sprigs for garnish
1 scallion, minced (white and green parts)
1 tablespoon milk, half-and-half, or cream
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
100 grams good salmon roe


In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the cream cheese until smooth. With the mixer on medium speed, add the sour cream, lemon juice, dill, scallion, milk, salt, and pepper. With a rubber spatula, fold in 3/4 of the salmon roe. Spoon the dip into a bowl and garnish with the remaining salmon roe and sprigs of fresh dill.

Serve with chips, toasts, or crackers.
