By Julia Child

I have read/listened to so many books regarding food lately, that I am really second guessing my life in accounting, and think I should move to culinary magics. But after this book, I will only pursue my dreams of being a chef if I get to move to France.
This book was incredible. I don't know what else to say about it. Julia's descriptions of France, makes me feel now like I have been there myself. I also feel like I have gained 15 lbs.
I started my small obsession with Julia last year when I read Julie and Julia for my book club. If you haven't read that book yet, then maybe you have seen the movie, which was a pretty good movie. My husband liked it too, which is saying a lot because he doesn't like "chick flicks" at all.
Ok but back to the book. Julia is just incredible. I really liked her outlook on things and her desire and drive to do something with her life. Now, if you can believe this, I have never opened her cookbooks. And since she was pretty before my time as well, I haven't ever really seen any of her shows. I vaguely remember seeing reruns with my dad, but I had to have been pretty little. But I am so interested in seeing them, I have Netflixed them :)
