Silver Linings Cookbook: 11 Oscar Recipes To Wash The Taste Of MacFarlane Out Of Your Mouth

Whether you're headed out to an Oscar party or hunkering down this evening, here are some tasty treats you might enjoy. After you're done cooking, I hope you'll join Pajiba's tastiest dish, Courtney Enlow. She'll be live-blogging and MacFarlane-slamming right here starting at 8pm EST.

Life Of Chicken Pot Pie: Listen, you can tell everyone it's Tiger Pie, but no one will believe you. Fool me once. (recipe via; pun via; image via)

Mangoes Unchained: Oh my little troublemakers, there are a lot of ways you could enjoy your mangoes this Oscar night. Smoothies, lassis, salsa, salad, sorbet, etc. Me, I just like them plain. Here's a simple video on how to cut that flesh free. (pun via; image via)

S'Amours: It's a little hot out here in California for a fire, but those of you back east might like to take this excuse to light up the fire place and roast some mallows. For the rest of us, there's always the oven S'mours option. Mmmmmmmm, sweet, smothery goodness. (recipe via; pun via; image via)

Zero Dark Thirsty: This drink calls for the darkest rum you can find. (This one is Pajiba appropriate and a personal favorite.) If you're going to be a purist, you should mix the rum with Coke Zero. If you, like me, think Coke Zero is Satan's Sludgy Slurry, then don't torture yourself. (pun via; image via)

Beets Of The Southern Wild With Ar-Goat Cheese: If you're looking for something marginally healthier this evening, why not dish up a beet and goat cheese salad with wild southern greens? (pun via; image via)

Hushpuppies: If you want something a little less healthy, may I suggest these, the cutest Oscar snacks you'll ever see? If you're feeling really ambitious, you could try making Hush Puppy Mamma's fried gator, providing you can find gator on such short notice. (recipe via; lack of a pun via, image via)

Jessica Plantains: Plantains are somewhat bland on their own but can be a delicious vehicle for flavor and spices. This particular dish should be ginger-y as hell. (recipe via; pun via; image via)

MoonPie Kingdom: MoonPies are not that different from a S'Amours, except they won't leave you feeling hollow and empty and despairing. (recipe via; pun via; image via)

Les Miser-Rolls With Ham Hathaway And Hugh Pepperjackcheddar Cheese: Listen, if you find that Anne Hathaway pun too labored, you can always sub in Russell Crowe for all your hammy needs. (recipe via; pun via, image via)

Philly Cheesecake: Drooooooooooooooool. (pun via...uh....who do you think?)

John Wilkes Booth's Shots: If all else fails, folks, bust out the hard stuff. If you're looking around from some drinking rules you can go the classy route (Esquire Rules), the snooty route (Guardian Rules), the, er, frisky route (The Frisky) or, and this would be my advice, the Vince route (FilmDrunk). Sic Semper Drunkass, my dears.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I am gobsmacked. I read this post JUST NOW, but last night went to my cousin's for an Oscar party and we served many of these same items. Our additionals included Frankenweenies and the crabby snacks from SLP. Synchronicity!

  • Pete

    "Pun via." Christ. Well done, you creative geniuses.

  • JLH

    Ahhhh! I love Pajiba- but come on already! Seth MacFarlane is not bad! American Dad is awesome and he's a charming, smart mofo. Jeeeeeez. Tomorrow y'all eat crow! James Franco was atrocious...ease up a bit.

  • e jerry powell

    Just because Seth MacFarlane is talented and entertaining doesn't make him less of a douche. Both things can be true at the same time (and in this case, they are).

  • Maguita NYC

    Non-culinary question: Anyone watching E's red carpet, for I am truly freaking out!!! Peter Griffin was just on the red carpet.

    Seacrest just interviewed Seth MacFarlane's father and sister, and the father sounds and looks so much like a psychedelic fusion of Looney Tunes' Leopold Stokowsky and Peter Griffin!

  • e jerry powell

    Who's cooking? I would have to spend 80% of the time between now and the ceremony's curtain time at the market, which would leave me no time at all to crank all this out.

  • Robert

    I have to pick up snacks still. I need a vat of coffee, something crunchy that won't wreck the tv if I have to punish a bad segment, and fresh popcorn.

  • fracas

    No esc-Argo-t? That one's my favorite.

  • A. Smith

    Is it me or does a part of the melted goat cheese look like a decapitated pig head?

  • It's not you.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I'm not much of a rum drinker, but that Kraken rum looks... interesting.

  • RantOver

    I should not have enjoyed that as much as I did.
    Ham Hathaway gave my keyboard a good tea-dousing.

  • Maguita NYC

    Can we finish that off with a Moon-Pie Kingdom? I really wish this was some sort of Minority Report future where you can blast an image into your microwave and it cooks it for you.

    I am so non-hungry-hungry right now, it's not funny.

    @Joanna, great job. I did not expect this to be mouthwatering at all. Who would have ever thought that something to do with Les Misérables would be watering anything else than my eyes?

  • Tony

    Yay, puns! You reveal a weakness in your otherwise sterling character, Ms Robinson; however, it makes me adore you only that much more.

  • SeaKat Stabler

    A weakness? Nay, I believe you meant to say "strength."

    Yes, you did.
