(CLOSED) Julie & Julia Book Giveaway (5 Winners)!!!

I'm so EXCITED to share with you a book I love! I grew up with a mom who LOVED Julia Child she would recreated the yummy recipes we would see on TV. We would joke around the kitchen in our Julia Child voice and take in the wonderful smells all around us. This is one of the most found memories I have from my childhood.

Julia Child may not have changed my life but she did effect it in the most positive way. Today I'm not a gourmet chef but I take pleasure in the meals I make and even throw in a few of hers! Now again I'm far from my mom's caliber who could take on Julia's recipes that and her Bon Appetite Magazines, but I'm working my way there!

If you've seen the movie or haven't yet you NEED to read Julie and Julia. You will laugh you will cry and you'll just fall in love with these amazing characters. Pull out a comfy seat, grab a cup of Joe or whatever you would like to drink and read this book. After reading it you will be inspired to cook and make wonderful things!

Julia Child was an amazing woman that I have enjoyed reading about and have watch some amazing programs about her life that touched me, you should check it out! I promise you will enjoy this book as much as I did. I'm so excited to be able to share with you this book, 5 of readers will have the opportunity to read and LOVE this book also. Once you read it get inspired post your amazing recipes/life whatever and pass along this book to inspire more people around you!

  1. I have seen the previews and DEFINATELY want to see the movie (or read the book, he he) My sister and I used to flip our 5 channels of TV when we were growing up and watched Julia when there was nothing else on. I now wish I would have paid more attention, my cooking skills could use some practice!

    thanks for having such awesome givaways!!

  106. I haven't seen the movie yet...will probably rent it when it's out on DVD. I did start to read the book - got it from the library. I was enjoying it, but didn't get it read fast enough. It was due back at the library, and someone else was waiting for it, so I couldn't renew it. I'd love to win it so I could finish it!
