I went to see My Sister's Keeper the other night. Yes, a movie! Yes, without children!!! Anyway, I am getting sidetracked. There was a preview for the movie Julie & Julia. I had never heard of this. Julie decided to try all the recipes in a Julia Child cookbook in 365 days. Needless to say I am quite intrigued.

I don't have any hobbies right now. Who can with a toddler and a demanding infant? I spend way too much time online, especially on Facebook (oh, and I will NOT be twittering... way too much for me I think!!). I need a real hobby. Lately I have been cooking a lot of bread recipes out of my Joy of Cooking cook book. My breads are turning out quite nicely, especially the milk bread and cheese bread. Last night I made homemade pizza dough and my pepperoni pizza was GREAT. I will never do takeout again!

So I'm wondering, if Julie can learn to cook like Julia Child, maybe I could do something similar? Obviously I won't be turning it into a book like she did, but just to expand our tastebud horizons. We eat so many of the same things over and over again. I hardly ever cook vegetables because I don't know how. Maybe now is the time to learn? Maybe seeing me cook will get my children interested in cooking and *gasp* expand what Jordan eats (I cannot imagine how toddlers can think it is ok to eat chicken nuggets EVERY DAY).

I'll keep you all posted and will take pictures. I already have pizza pictures!!

I'll definately be tuning in for this :) I need to expand our palettes too and Kiara needs a better example rather than showing us how we should be eating LOL

So, recipes tested and yummy...please post about your culinary experiences :D
