Check Out @Netflix Inspired Thanksgiving Recipes From Chef Curtis Stone! #StreamTeam #Ad

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Netflix.  As a member of the Netflix Stream Team, I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

    There is nothing like enjoying original recipes with your loved ones on Thanksgiving.  My family and I love to watch movies and shows together that not only have great characters but also have great food.  We always make note of some of our favorite foods from our favorite shows and conduct research in order to try to replicate them whenever the entire family gets together to celebrate during the holidays.

    Luckily for us, we don’t have to look far to find some awesome and delectable recipes this Thanksgiving.  Chef Curtis Stone has created three exclusive recipes that are inspired by his favorite original Netflix shows.  They are a cocktail for Orange is the New Black, Freddy’s ribs from House of Cards, and some flaming bananas for Arrested Development.  He loves to watch TV shows and movies on Netflix while cooking dinner for his family just like I do!

    Since the character Red on the show Orange is the New Black is a chef, his first Netflix inspired recipe is a version of the classic White Russian cocktail which includes orange liqueur and orange zest…


    Whenever Chef Curtis Stone watches “House of Cards” on Netflix, he wants desperately to taste the ribs that Frank eats from Freddy’s BBQ Joint!  His rib recipe is served with a South Carolina inspired BBQ sauce which contains plenty of vinegar, mustard, and just the right amount of heat…


    Chef Stone enjoys many hilarious moments by watching the clearly dysfunctional Bluth family on “Arrested Development.”  The family seems like they’re bananas, drunken, a little spicy, and always up in flames.  As a result, he thought a flamed banana dessert would be the perfect fit…


    As you can see, you can enjoy all of your favorite Netflix TV shows and movies and enjoy your favorite foods at the same time.  I can’t think of a better time than Thanksgiving to come together with our friends and family to spend some quality time together sharing great food and enjoying Netflix.  The best part is that you don’t even have to leave home to do so!

Let’s Discuss:  Do you have a food or a recipe that you associate with one of your favorite TV shows or movies?

  1. I haven’t had a White Russian in over 35 years! This variation is making me want to have one-and it really is so easy to prepare.

  2. Those BBQ ribs sound amazing (and messy)! Oh and a white Russian – boy, it’s been a long time since I had one of those 🙂

  3. wendi watson says

    I do like Black and Orange i wish they would hurry and get the next season done!

  4. Chrishelle Ebner says

    These are great show inspired recipes. We are NetFlix addicts, especially my teens. Of the shows Chef Stone mentioned I have only watched Arrested Development, will have to check out the others.

  5. I love Curtis Stone! I love Netflix! Red cracks me up and I can’t wait for the new season of Orange is the New Black! I don’t personally cook while watching tv…. but I do enjoy some good music!

  6. What great recipes! My family loves Netflix, we watch something together at least once a week!

  7. Jennifer Williams says

    I do not normally drink but being that we have relatives in, I am trying that drink! Love Curtis Stone’s recipes. Watching a movie on streaming Netflix right now, so nice to not have to return anything tomorrow.

  8. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says

    I don’t have a connection but now I’m going to start thinking about it when I watch TV! I love my Netflix, although I usually choose movies rather than series.

  9. Katherine Bartlett says

    I just got Roku so I’ll be using netflix soon!

  10. JadeLouise Designs says

    I love the idea of having food in the same theme as a show you are watching! I definitely have to try that rib recipe!

  11. I guess the only thing I can thin of is pizza when watching football. I do like popcorn with a good movie.

  12. I do not really have a favorite for movies as when i am watching a movie we have normally eaten lol.but seems like fun to do something like this and i love the sound of the drunken bananas lol.

  13. Onica {MommyFactor} says

    How fun to have food and drinks based on food. I like to keep meals simple but maybe I should use some of these recipes

  14. I just about squeed when I saw that picture of Red. OITNB is my new favorite show. I don’t have any recipes that I associate with my favorite characters, but now you’ve challenged me to do so!

  15. Haha I love Curtis Stone and think it is awesome that he has come up with recipes for these TV shows!

  16. Amanda MacMahon says

    My family generally has white russians on holidays.

  17. Teresa McCluskey says

    I love the Hose of Cards! Plus the meal looks so good!

  18. BabsProjects says

    I love the recipe for Russian Cocktail and Flaming Bananas. I am however, not sure of the TV shows as we don’t have NetFlix Streaming (except for Arrested Development: used to watch it on TV and loved it).

  19. Great recipe. I’m a big netflix fan having been with them for years. Have no intention of leaving either.

  20. Curtis Stone is becoming one of my favorite celebrity chefs… everything looks so good!

  21. Isabel Garcia says

    My whole family loves Netflix! Those barbecued ribs look amazing! 🙂

  22. Meagan Bailiff says

    I don’t think i associate any food with any show, but I do sometimes like to snack while I watch Mad Men on netflix.
