Have any of you seen the movie Julie and Julia? Russ and I rented it a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was really cute. It's about two of my favorite things: blogging and cooking! Not only did I enjoy it (though it was a little slow in some parts), but it also inspired me. I love cooking and I love trying new recipes. One of the things on my Christmas list that I was gifted was the cookbook Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld.
I am so excited about this cookbook! It is geared toward making recipes that children like such as macaroni and cheese or pizza, but in a healthier way. So one of my goals for 2011 is to do a spin on the Julie/Julia project. In the movie Julie and Julia, Julie went through a Julia Child cookbook in a year. She made every recipe in the book and blogged about the results. I am going to do the same thing. I'm not going to put a time limit on mine like Julie did, but I am going to try to do 2 recipes a week. I will take a picture of the finished project and blog about them. I think this is going to be a super fun project for me and I hope you guys enjoy reading about my cooking endeavors!
Plus, Jessica Seinfeld (who is Jerry Seinfeld's wife) also has a sequel so if this goes well, maybe I'll do it with the second one, too.
