This story unfolds Julia Child's story of her passion for cooking through her recipes from her first book: The Joy of Cooking!

Brooke's Card inspired by the movie: Julie and Julia
We are HUGE foodies at our house so I was excited to finally see this movie.. Julia Child is one of the first chefs I can remember watching on t.v.
What a project Julie Powell took on with her cooking blog... After a weekly Cob Salad lunch date with friends, Julie Powell was tired of feeling like a second class citizen. Julie wanted to find something she was really good and share her story.. She created a blog to document her journey cooking ALL the recipes in Julia Child's cook book. I think she bit off a little more that she could chew to say the least.. This adventure even jeopardized her marriage. She said that Julia gave her life purpose. Amy Adams did a sweet job portraying Julie Powell. It was so delightful to get a glimpse of Julia Child's live. She was so adorable.. I was disappointed in the end of the movie though I felt like the story didn't have a lot of closure. Defiantly worth the watch though.. I watched the movie on Netflicks instant download.
Enjoy the show
Sankari's Card Inspired by the movie: Julie and Julia
I remember watching Julia Child's cooking show as a kid with my mom and it was amazing to watch Meryl Streep transform into Julia Child - she is seriously my favorite actress - just amazing! I loved the way the spliced the two Julia's lives together and although I do wish it had a bit more closure as well, it left me feeling inspired that I can cook! So I created this little recipe card holder in a nugget box of all my favorite dessert recipes. I was inspired by how they complied all the recipes and tried it out - so here are all of my tried and true recipes that are a quick make when you are in a pinch for time:
I am always running out of ideas for quick snacks and desserts that are healthy for the kids and that I can easily make for their snack day at school: so I printed out a few of my favorite quick recipes and altered this little nugget box with some rubons to not only house the recipe cards but to also be the holder while I am baking :) I love how quick and easy it was to make!
So inspired by the movie - I am making a big dinner tomorrow night - and you are all invited!! Will let you know the menu soon!
Can't wait to see the creations you have cooked up!
