The Crown - Queen of Hearts Tarts

Every girl loves to be treated like royalty, which is why when you’re looking to unleash her inner empress, the only proper way to do so is by feasting on food fit for a queen. While Queen Elizabeth is said to turn her nose up at carbs, we don’t think even she could say 'no' to this crumbly, buttery crust filled with finger-licking jams or jellies. Just remember, “pinkies up.” Get the recipe.

Orange is the New Black - Crazy Eyes’ Cherry Pie

Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren set relationship goals when she literally threw her pie as an act of love for Piper. Now, if you can’t bear the thought of wasting perfectly good food like that (and we don’t blame you), just make this delicious pie, instead, as you get ready for a late night lock in with the lovely ladies of Litchfield. Get the recipe.

Stranger Things - Dustin's Chocolate Pudding

If all that talk Dustin is doing about chocolate pudding has got you craving some (us too!), pause the show, run to the kitchen, and make this adult-friendly version full of Bailey's Irish Cream in as little as 15 minutes. We can’t, however, promise that evil government agents won’t storm in and ruin all the fun. Get the recipe.

A Series of Unfortunate Events - Count Olaf's Roast Beef

Indulge your inner child with a visit from some of our favorite tormented tots – Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire – who, in one episode, prepare the most palatable of puttanescas only to be told by Count Olaf that they must make roast beef, instead. If your Valentine is as difficult to please as Count Olaf (although we say just ditch ‘em at that point), this Roast Beef is sure to satisfy even the pickiest of palates. Get the recipe.
