* the best part? this book is non-fiction, she really did it folks.

me & julia

i know what you're thinking... and yes, i did. attempting julia child's famous boeuf bourguignon turned out to be quite the adventure. 6 hours and two bottles of wine later... it was totally worth it.

*just remember, don't crowd the mushrooms.

I got the blues thinking of the future, so I left off and made some marmalade. It's amazing how it cheers one up to shred oranges and scrub the floor.
