Mastering the Art of French Cooking: 52 Week Experiment

I got a book for Valentine's Day from my beefcake, that I love:

I watched Julie and Julia twice in one day, 
and was totally inspired by the movie! 

"I'm so excited!" squeals Julia:

So, with my family's full knowledge and approval,
I am going to be doing a little Julie and Julia experiment myself.

For fun.
For friends.
For family.
For France!

One recipe a week for the next 52 weeks.
The difference is: I will be using all organic, natural ingredients 
and also veggies and herbs from our garden.

Wanna come along?

The recipes will be posted each Saturday night.
The first recipe:
Choux de Bruxelles a' la Milanaise.

You're blessed 
when you've worked up a good appetite 
for God. 
He's food and drink 
in the best meal you'll ever eat.
~Matthew 5:6

  1. That sounds like so much fun! We will be sure to follow along! Great movie!

  2. Wow, Leslie. Good luck! You know what? When I saw that movie, that's when I learned about blogs and wanted to do one! Isn't that amazing? I didn't even know blogland existed! Ha! But I know now and I'm so glad I went to see that movie. Sincerely, Susan

  3. How exciting. I can't wait! I will be following along, seeing how it goes. :)

  4. Brave girl! I wish we could all taste along with you as you go; I'm sure it'll be delish!

  5. Oh, how fun! I can't wait to see how it goes. Just recently watched that movie and loved it! I love your twist to it, too. This year we are planting our biggest garden yet! Maybe your inspiration will wear off on me. :)

  6. I'm all for organic and home grown!

    How fun to do this! I'll be following along!

    I can do a Julia Child impersonation. So if you ever want a video!!!!! ;D

  7. Hi girls!
    Okay, I'm gonna go for it!
    This should be fun, I hope!

  8. i wish i could be there to eat, too.

  9. How much fun will that be!?

    I have done organic milk for a long time, and I'm starting to work on adding more organics. It's difficult for a tightwad like me, but I think it's important, so I'm trying...

    I'll be looking forward to seeing how this goes for you!

  10. What a great idea. I read in a biography about Martha Stewart that she got her start in cooking by reading that very book. organic and home grown is the way to go. We buy organic from our local farmer's market in the spring summer and fall and I can't wait to be able to get that again!! The food tastes so much better.
