Go See It...

Finally went to see the movie Julie & Julia. Run, don't walk to see this movie, or at least that's my opinion. I have loved Julia Child for a very long time. I always knew there was a lot more to her than what the viewer saw. I bought her biography about a year ago and was amazed at her life story. This movie barely touches on it but, her accomplishments changed how women in particular, cook in America. She was witty, charming, naughty, intelligent and a spy....YES, a spy!

This movie made me want to eat and cook and create and entertain. A truly charming story that will take you away for a couple of hours to culinary heaven...and there's nothing wrong with that!


  1. Can it take me away to a culinary kitchen in Spain?

  2. I saw the movie and I got hungry too! What is the name of that book about her? Martha

  3. I did The Time Travelers Wife this week. Julie & Julia is next. Sorry to hear you are having fires again. Bummer. Yes, Pacific Grove is Heaven here on earth. I may be coming back out to California to take a class & then a friend that lives in Ventura said she would take me into LA to shop. Ohhhhhhhhhhh I hope I can pull the $$$$$ together. That was a sweet post about your hubby & you walking. What a romantic he is. Lucky are we gals with romantic guys. Have a great weekend.

  4. How about throwing a "Julia Child" dinner party in that new dining room of yours?

    You can make the whole meal out of the book and require everyone to bring a Julia dish too!

    (I'll bring her favorite


  5. Oh I just saw Julie & Julia this weekend.
    I really enjoyed it. And I feel the same as you I now want to go buy her book and actually do some cooking.
    It was a cute movie. not the best movie of the year but a good chick flick.


Go 'head...say it already!
