A few of my favorite things…Julia Child edition

1 Mar

If you live anywhere other than South Florida, I’m sure we are thinking the same thing, “Is this winter ever going to end?!”. Rather than joining the rest of the country in complaining about it (which I’ve been guilty of for the past few weeks), I’ve decided to face it head on and say, “bring it on!”.

Instead of focusing on the dreary cold weather outside, I have decided to focus on my favorite things. For the next two weeks, you will hear no complaining here, just posts and recipes of my favorite things. Make sure to like me on Facebook and follow my blog so you don’t miss out on any.

I will start with one of my obvious favorite things…Julia Child!

You can often find me before dinner most nights saying, “Bon Appetit” in an high pitched creaky voice trying to mimic one of my favorite people. It usually makes my husband and family cringe a bit but it makes me smile and laugh and enjoy my meal that much more.

I may have spent close to 3 hours in the Julia Child’s kitchen when it was at the National History Museum in Washington D.C.

My parents happened to find the perfect birthday card for me this year:


Here are reasons I love Julia (or “Jules” as I imagine she would want me to call her because we would totally be besties if she was still alive):

– She embraced life regardless of the situation she was given

– She didn’t discover her passion in the kitchen until later in life and was still able to impact the entire world

– Her voice makes me smile

– Her writing makes me laugh

– She believed all foods are ok to eat IN MODERATION

– She makes cooking a delicious meal possible for just about anyone

– Her husband and she have the cutest love story

– She loved kitchen gadgets

– One of her mottos is “never apologize for anything that happens in the kitchen”

– She makes everything about being in the kitchen fun

I am thinking my weekend has some baking from “Baking with Julia” in store…stay tuned (and stay warm!) 🙂
