Julie & Julia

If you love to cook, or even just like to cook, and you know anything at all about Julia Child, then this movie is for you!! I could not wait to go see this movie. I am a "Foody" and love to cook, and I love Julia! But I also love Meryl Streep! Her performance alone was brilliant!! But the movie was so charming, and a pleasure from start to finish. Stanley Tucci was great as Julia's husband, and the two actors that played Julie and her husband were also great. I snuck away to see it Friday afternoon, the day it came out. I want to go see it again. I only have one of Julia's cookbooks, but I plan to buy the one that this movie was regarding too. I think I may even cook my way through it like Julie did!
I hope you go see this movie, and if you already have, what did you think?

Funny enough, my husband is the Julia child fan. He's a spectacular cook and even brought one of her cook books into our marriage. He's dying to see the movie

I LOVED IT....It was just my kind of a movie....cooking and blogging and what I call a "diligent worker" type of movie where the characters are working throughout the movie to accomplish something worthwhile...I LOVE Meryl Streep and she doesn't disappoint. I definitely want to see it again... Did I mention I liked it?? haha
