CUCINA CARA MIA.......Random thoughts from "my dear kitchen" about food, travel, Italy, San Diego and life!

Wednesday, July 22, 2009


Instead of blogging...I'm reading...Just finished this book, which is a hoot, and very educational, in a Julia Child kind of way. I am really looking forward to the movie coming out on August 7th. and to see how well Meryl Streep does her Julia Child imitation.

I am sure you have heard the premise.... Julie, a young New York secretary decides to start a blog which involves cooking every single recipe in Julia Child's The Art of French Cooking and blogging about it--now I don't know about you, but I don't think I would even attempt any of her recipes....Now Ina Garten - I have 6 of your cookbooks, how long do you think it would take me to cook my way through all of those....

With the way the hot summer weather has made me - lazy, I don't think it would happen in this lifetime.

Hope you are all enjoying summer! And if you have a few hours, read the book, you will get a kick out of it!

I like your new mosaic header Linda!

I can't wait for the movie! From the previews that I've seen (look on Youtube) Meryl Step nails Julia Child's voice and mannerisms.

I've made quite a few of Julia's recipes -- many are not as hard as you might think!

Ciao Linda Lou! I love your photos of Amalfi up there in your banner. :-) There is a little treat waiting for you over at Ciao Amalfi!

Have a lovely weekend!

Love your new header!! How are you Linda Lou? I love Meryl Streep and Julia Child so I can't wait to see the film. I've missed blogging with you, as summer has kept me pretty busy.

Have a wonderful weekend!!! Talk to you again soon.

I went to a screening of the movie tonight. It's cute (there are almost too many stories going on -- as my friend Jean said you kind of want more of all of them), but most of all...Meryl Streep is AMAZING! Is there anything that woman can't do?!

Sue said...

Hi your new header...Have you gotten to see the movie yet...I just did a review of it...I wish the whole movie was about Julia in France...didn't care too much for the Julie parts...hope your summer is going well....Sue in Atlanta
