Tinsel & Tine Celebrates Breakfast Month with
Krusteaz Blogger Program

Win a Krusteaz #BreakfastNight Prize Pack!

By Editor, Le Anne Lindsay

When someone says would you like to be sent pancakes, blueberry muffins, cinnamon crumb cake mixes, gift card for side dishes and a selfie stick, you just say YES Please! The big, new, non-stick pan from T-Fal Cookware was a total surprise!

I also signed on to participate, as I've always been an proponent of breakfast for dinner for as long as I can remember, I feel like mentally, I was part of McDonald's being swayed to serve breakfast all day.  So I love this #BreakfastNight promo which basically is like "Hey, fixing dinner every night is a hassle and a stress, but fixing breakfast is a lot less so, especially with the good and easy mixes made by Krusteaz" - All of which is true.  I, thankfully, don't cook for a family, I say thankfully because I don't like to cook, not because I don't like family.  Still, many nights I've come home after a movie screening (when I didn't have time to pack a #CinemaSneaknSnack) and I've made pancakes for a late night snack, and with Krusteaz just add water mixes, it'll be delicious and super quick!

Below is the little video I made after opening up the box of swag today! I'm not sure why it looks like I'm squinting. I'm not trying to read anything. I've got to pay attention to this, cause I've seen other pics of me squinting lately, I'm turning into a French Stewart.

In honor of National Hot Breakfast Month in February KRUSTEAZ is giving away: Two boxes each of the following mixes: Buttermilk Pancake Mix, Belgian Waffle Mix, Blueberry Pancake Mix, Wild Blueberry Muffin Mix, and Cinnamon Swirl Crumb Cake Mix. Along with a new whisk, spatula & tote bag. (Sorry, the gift card, pan & molds are gifts for the Blog hosting).

My sister and I are going to make one of the Krusteaz mixes for breakfast tomorrow, breakfast at breakfast time, which I think is still allowed. I'll add videos and pictures to this post as we celebrate Breakfast Month the rest of February, maybe I'll figure out a way to fit in a little Black History too :)

POST UPDATE 2.10.17 - If you are among those who enjoy breakfast at dinner, you're not alone. Krusteaz, makers of premium pancake, waffle and baking mixes, released the results of its third annual breakfast survey, a national poll conducted by ORC International, revealing that the "Breakfast Night" trend continues as nine out of 10 Americans say they eat breakfast for dinner. But it's particularly popular with millennials (93%) fire up their griddles for breakfast foods at other unexpected parts of the day, such as lunch and late night snacking. Millennials are 84% more likely then Gen X and Boomers to eat breakfast for lunch and 83% more likely then Gen X and Boomers to enjoy breakfast as a late-night snack. As for topping choices, millennials are also more likely to mix it up. They are more than twice as likely than Boomers to top pancakes and waffles with strawberries, chocolate chips or whipped cream versus the more traditional syrup which is still the most popular topping for pancakes and waffles, selected by 60% of all respondents. And since all good meals are better when you share, it's no surprise that 56% of millennials noted they would share their breakfast for dinner images on social media.

POST UPDATE 2.28.17 - Here's some pics of our easy & delicious Breakfast Nights with Krusteaz:

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Food n Film: CHEF

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST


The key to deciphering both the city it beautifully depicts and the man who eats it best - City of Gold

By Tinsel & Tine Contributor Denine Gorniak (The Bicycle-Chef)

What Jonathan Gold, Los Angeles Times food critic/writer, has done for food writing journalism and for the restaurants that he loves, the movie, City of Gold has done for Jonathan Gold and Los Angeles and its surrounding environs – it has planted taco covered kisses on them... READ POST

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT
If you’re a foodie movie lover who saw Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred Foot Journey (see T&T post), this summer you may be wondering what delicious visual journey might be awaiting you in the theater next. Well, how about a look back at his film Chocolat (2000), which stars French actress Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Hallström’s has a special talent for turning cooking into a dramatic movie journey...READ MORE


...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA
Personally, I like the unevenness of it, because I fell in love with the post World War II, Parisian sights, sounds, food and romance between Julia and Paul. I always felt a bit jarred back into reality when the scenes returned to Julie's meltdowns and cramped kitchen.READ POST

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST


With a film like this, food plays a main character in the story and I was lucky enough to get an interview with the film's Food Stylist, Janine Kalesis.READ POST

Food n Film: WAITRESS

Food n Film: WAITRESS
In this 2007 film, Keri Russell stars as Jenna - a desolate diner waitress seeking solace in the art of pie-making. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, she’s eager to escape her husband and her small-town hell and sets about to make a run for it by entering an out of town pie baking contest. READ POST

About This Blog

is about discovering what I find pleasing in screening & eating - in case you missed it, the name is a play on Tinseltown using the Tines of a Fork.

Feel free to send me info on a film or new restaurant you'd like me to highlight.

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
