Julie and Julia

Julie & Julia, with Meryl Streep & Amy Adams

I know... where's a new recipe, that's what you're thinking.... but, they're coming - and they are worth the wait.  Trust me.  I mean one's a staple state fair food.... and the other, well, lets just say, summer birthdays will get a whole new meaning ;-)

So, to tide you over, I wanted to share that my friends and I got to see Julie and Julia this week!!!  You know -- the cooking movie based on the Julie/Julia Project ... !

And, we LOVED it.  My friend visiting from France wanted to see it with me because she knows blogging about food is my guilty pleasure. And, it was a blessing to see this movie with her and my other wonderful friend.

Meryl Streep and Amy Adams did a phenomenal job -- and the cinematography was fantastic, and the food -- well, it was pretty spectacular, and funny at times too.  I loved it when Julie when reflects on her adventure and talks about how cooking has brought her much joy -- because the same is true in my kitchen.

And, I will no longer complain about my tiny kitchen... Julie's was MUCH smaller :)  But Julia's, well, hers was amazing.  I'll leave it at that - go see it.  You'll enjoy it very much.  Let me know your thoughts when you do :)


  1. Oh I cannot wait to see this movie. Someday, my friend, someday, they will be making movies about us.

  2. I am looking forward to seeing this movie! Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. My 16 yo daughter, who aspires to be a pastry chef & I went and saw it opening day - we also loved it! Great blog btw, usually I am just a lurker but thought i'd say hi for a change!

  4. So neat! I am planning on seeing this movie this weekend!

  5. My husband and I saw it earlier this week and loved it. I felt like I could really relate well with both of the characters--both of them with their love of eating/cooking good food and with Julie for her love of blogging.

  6. I want to see this too. Someday.

  7. I totally want to see this! Glad to hear how much you enjoyed it.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
