I am sooo excited I can hardly type. I am embarking on a new project and I am thrilled to tell ya about it.
Have you seen the Julie/Julia Project? Or seen the movie Julie & Julia???
I absolutely heart it… really.
For those of you who have been living under a rock and never heard of this, it is about a gal who started a blog and blogged her way through Julia Child’s cookbook. The movie is about both the blogger, Julie and the cooking icon Julia Child’s lives 😉
Now I grew up in the age without the Food Network and Julia Child was about the only cook on TV that I can remember as a kid. I remember lovin’ her so much that I would pretend I was her as I wrapped my modeling clay in tin foil pretending it was the Thanksgiving turkey and I, Miss Cris, was your cooking show a la Julia. We won’t talk about how that modeling clay was green and made for the most unappetizing bird.
Anyhoo, as an adult I discovered that while I love Julia, her cooking style doesn’t exactly fit my lifestyle. However, after seeing the movie for the 100th time, I gots to thinkin’ that I do have a certain cookbook (or set of cookbooks) that I’d love to cook my way through and blog about along the way.
An idea was born:
I emailed my GOODe friends over at Gooseberry Patch and asked if they’d mind if I let my readers choose one of their cookbooks for me to cook through here on GOODEness Gracious. As usual, they were wonderful and gave me the green light.
So, I gots to diggin’ and picked out three books that I would love to cook through, but there are only
28 24 hours in this mama’s day, so I would like for you, dear reader, to vote and tell me which you’d like to see up close and personal here on GOODEness Gracious 😉
