Julie and Julia

365 days, 524 recipes, 1 tiny apartment kitchen: how one girl risked her marriage, her job, and her sanity to master the art of living by Julie Powell

This is the true story of Julie Powell's project of cooking all 500-something recipes in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking in one year. She started a blog and chronicled her journey, gaining many blog followers over the weeks.

While I found the story itself interesting, I cannot recommend this book because of the profanity in it. Julie herself even writes in the book of blog comments objecting to it.


  1. The movie is good, Bobbiann. No profanity that I can recall!

    Kelly :)

  2. I saw the movie before reading the book and I agree that it was good.
