Dishing on the Academy Awards

Well, its Oscars Sunday! The 84th Annual Academy Awards premiere this evening.  I adore awards shows, mostly because of the fashion that comes along with each celeb gracing the Red Carpet. I think it would be just fabulous to have an Oscars party, hosting the girls, wine and some cooking. If you're having an Oscar's party, you have to check out Ezra Pound Cake's Oscars Menus. Rebecca Crump has done it again with these amazing movie themes menus perfect for your Oscars Viewing Party. They highlight food that compliments some of the major pictures being recognized tonight. Some of the Movies and food highlighted are..
