Every night, is a dinner and a movie night. This new feature will pair a recipe with a star and then pair one of their movies. The first star to get this is Rock Hudson! A popular classic actor who starred in such films as "Giant," "The Undefeated," "Written on the Wind," and in several movies with actress, Doris Day.

The Recipe: "Rock Hudson's Chicken Casserole"

The recipe is from the site, Recipe Circus and is under their celebrity recipes. The recipe is entitled, "Rock Hudson's Chicken Casserole." The source of the recipe comes from the 1981 cookbook, “Celebrity Cookbook,” by Johna Blinn. The book on Amazon is only like $2.99.

The recipe's cooking time seems that it's about 40 minutes all together, give or take a little. From cooking the sauce for 10 minutes and then baking the whole casserole for 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

My advice is simple, just read the recipe carefully from Recipe Circus and see if it's to your own liking.

The Movie: "Pillow Talk"

To pair with this meal, watch Hudson and Doris Day's first romantic comedy together, "Pillow Talk." Tony Randall also co-starred with them. The film is about two opposites that have to share a party line.

If you don't own the film, rent it at your local video-store and if you can't find a copy, Amazon has a 24 rental for $3.99. Also on Amazon this film has garnished a nice rating over 130, five star reviews and only 3, one star reviews.

So have fun pairing the recipe and movie together!
