In my humble opinion, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of the best things to ever happen to the film industry. And the world. Just think of all of the wonderful things it has given us: Guardians of the Galaxy, Robert Downey Jr. playing himself constantly, Scarlett Johansson kicking butt and becoming a role model to females everywhere, and now Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Age of Ultron looks like it could become the best movie in the universe so far, which is saying a lot considering how much I (and the rest of the world) love Iron Man, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Guardians of the Galaxy. I mean, just LOOK at the most recent Age of Ultron trailer and try to tell me that it doesn’t look fantastic.
Now, whenever something big like this comes along, I always feel inclined to celebrate by cooking and baking. So, for Avengers: Age of Ultron, I’m all about the superhero recipes. The dishes inspired by all of Earth’s mightiest heroes (and their friends). Easy dinner recipes, easy dessert recipes, even a few snack recipes. There are so many dishes to make in honor of the Avengers that you’d have to cook and bake for the better part of a week to make them all!

If you had the power to make one Avenger exist in the real world, who would you choose?
(I’d totally choose Steve Rogers [Captain America]. Hands down. No contest. How wonderful would it be to have him in the world?)
