Julie & Julia

It's been a while since I've had a book I've really wanted to read.

I'm embarrassed to say it but a recent movie trailer reminded me of one book that I've wanted to read for a few years but kept forgetting about - Julie & Julia: My year of cooking dangerously

I like the idea that the book covers snippets of Julia Child's life while also cataloguing the author's attempt to cook all 524 recipes in Julia's cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Plus, did I mention that Julie Powell had originally written a blog about her year and that's how she landed the book deal? Very cool.

At least I'm reading the book - courtesy of the Newton Free Library - before I see the movie (which has Meryl Streep playing Julia Child).
