Are you ready for some Christmas magic? Heck yes! With that in mind, how 'bout another giveaway?

This time, it's a totally sweet prize pack brought to you by the movie It's Complicated, featuring Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin, which was directed by Nancy Meyers and will be in theatres on December 25. Why this movie? Well, because as you know I am fascinated with dessert in movies, and this one features the inimitable Meryl as a baker!

Here's what you can win:

Prize 1: “Uncomplicate Your Holidays with a Visa Cash Card!” -- one winner will receive a $50 Visa Gift Card, and an It’s Complicated tote bag filled with an apron, t-shirt, blanket and the official soundtrack!

Prize 2: Five additional *daily* winners will receive an It’s Complicated Tote Bag filled with an Apron & T-shirt!

These sound like some sweet prizes for movie enthusiasts!

How do you enter?

It's easy: just leave a comment below saying what your favorite food-in-movie scene is! And since I'm feeling generous, feel free to post your favorite sweet or savory food moment in movies!

The giveaway will run for two weeks! In the meantime, check out the trailer below--you can also find out more about the movie on the official website or on Facebook!

Stranger Than Fiction is the best. I like the scene when Ana bakes Harold cookies. "After a really awful no-good day, didn't your mama ever make you milk and cookies?" And of course the flours scene. And when she feeds him the sugar cookie in the hospital. Basically the whole movie.

What? No one has mentioned Chocolat? How could nearly every scene in that movie not make you drool? Chocolate AND Johnny Depp, YUM!

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterMelinda

Big Night, anyone? The final scene, when Stanley Tucci makes Tony Shalhoub scrambled eggs in a dialogue-less moment of brotherly reconciliation.

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterHolly Rossi

Have to say I love the part in Pretty Woman where she has all the silverware to use. Then she sends the snail flying across the room. Too funny.

December 8 | Unregistered Commentersoon2b

I love the moment in Ratatoullie where the food critic tastes the Ratatoullie and is transported back to his childhood in a single bite.

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterCaroline

I love the scene in Legally Blonde where Elle takes 1 bite of each chocolate truffle in a box then throws it at the TV screen! Every girl should try this just once.

I know it is corny but how about the be our guest number from Beauty and the Beast.

Soul Food - the first Sunday dinner scene. The table is groaning under the weight of the food, and the family is all together, but they aren't perfect. The laugh, they cry, they fight, but they love each other. Gets me every time. After seeing that movie, our family started a Sunday dinner tradition.

I love The Big Chill, when they're all dancing around the kitchen to Ain't Too Proud to Beg while preparing dinner and setting the table. Classic!

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterJinger

The scenes from Woman on Top. Combined with the music they just scream sexy.

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterTeri

The American President where the President can't manage to send Sydney the state flower of Virginia so instead sends her a Virginia ham. That never fails to amuse me!

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterMammoth

I like the ending of "Waitress" where Keri Russel's character sings a little tune about pie to her baby daughter as they stir up a pie. So adorable!

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterJelli Bean

I don't know if I have a particular favorite, but Watson's hallucination in Young Sherlock Holmes, where the desserts come alive, is funny and really disturbing both.

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterQuill

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! (The old one) where they scoop cream out of those huge mushrooms and the tea cups are edible.

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterAlexandra

In Sabrina (the remake with Harrison Ford) when they eat at the morrocan restaurant...the food looks so amazing, they have this fruit bowl that I am dying to have.

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterTia

Totally the scene in CHocolat where Compte de Reynard loses it and goes ape in the chocolate display!

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterSarah Anne F

I also love Chocolat! My favorite part is where Viviane first sets out all her chocolates. That movie makes me want to eat my body weight in chocolate!

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterJanelle-a-belle

I think it will be too obvious, but I totally love "Chocolat." Specially when they're preparing the chocolates to open the store. Long story short, as soon as the movie was over I had to run to the store and get my chocolate fix.

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterDai

In the movie Benny & Joon where Johnny Depp is making grilled cheese sandwiches w/an iron on the ironing board! I believe the iron is set on rayon!

I loved almost every scene in Bella Martha (German movie released in the US as Mostly Martha, "No Reservations" was based on it), but particularly the one where Martha and the guy are in the kitchen and she's blind-folded and he's feeding her yummies. SO HOT!

December 8 | Unregistered Commenterherbstsonne

I must say that for food, the movie that came to mind first was Chocolat. The delicious chocolate! I really want to try some of the hot chocolate as well! Yum!

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterSilent Company

I love the cafe scene in Benny & Joon where Sam (Johnny Depp's character) makes the rolls "dance"!

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterCrystal

My favorite is in the movie a Christmas Story when the next door neighbors dogs barge into their house and they knock the turkey on the floor and devour it. The dad is so mad and freaks out and the mom starts crying. I love that seen. I would cry too if my turkey fell on the floor and got eaten by hounds.

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterScrapamum

I love the lobster scene in Julie & Julia. It is really like the lobster plays it's own role in the movie! Hope it got paid well!

December 8 | Unregistered CommenterSara

So many movies...and we can only choose one. Any of the bakery scenes from Stranger Than Fiction with Maggie Gyllenhaal as the owner of the cute little shop.
