This past weekend I was in sunny, but cold, St. George at a baseball tourney... the ride down and back was consumed with this little jewel... Julie & Julia- My year of Cooking Dangerously
This is a memoir of Julie Powell and her quest to figure out her life. She takes on the "project" of cooking every recipe in Julia Child's recipe book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, in one year. It is hilarious! She debones a duck, murders lobster, and all the while is blogging about it. This took place in 2002...she blogged before blogging was really popular. Now her story is being made into a movie starring Meryl Streep. I am so curious about Julia Child now, I want to find some old TV reruns of her show. I didn't know she was 6'2". Who knows maybe I will master the art of French Cooking...NOT! This is a great read! There are so many wonderful passages about the ups and downs of blogging... funny culinary disasters... and just funny life happenings. You can still read the blog here
P.S. Thanks Chalyce for the book! LOVED IT!
