"Julie & Julia"

"365 days, 524 recipes, 1 tiny apartment kitchen" boasts the tag line of Julie Powell's blog inspired book, "Julie & Julia." I am halfway through my Christmas gift and am really enjoying it! The author and blogger Julie came to a turning point in her life and decided to chronicle her experiences of cooking EVERY recipe in Julia Child's classic cookbook, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking." This book gets the Barefoot Bird seal of approval for all home chefs and bloggers out there!

The film version, starring Meryl Streep & Amy Adams, is set to release late this summer!
