Giveaway - Julie and Julia by Julie Powell

Thanks to Anna and Hachette Book Group I have 3 copies of Julie and Julia by Julie Powell to giveaway. Contest ends July 23rd at 11:59 p.m. Central time.


Julie & Julia, the bestselling memoir that's "irresistible....A kind of Bridget Jones meets The French Chef" (Philadelphia Inquirer), is now a major motion picture. Julie Powell, nearing thirty and trapped in a dead-end secretarial job, resolves to reclaim her life by cooking in the span of a single year, every one of the 524 recipes in Julia Child's legendary Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Her unexpected reward: not just a new found respect for calves' livers and aspic, but a new life-lived with gusto. The film version is written and directed by Nora Ephron and stars Amy Adams as Julie and Meryl Streep as Julia.

  1. I think the most difficult recipe for me was homemade lemon merenque (sp) pie. The topping was the killer for me.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. The most difficult recipe I've ever made was a Chicken, Rice, and Broccoli casserole. The recipe wasn't that difficult. I just grabbed the wrong thing at the grocery store. It called for condensed milk and I grabbed the one that you would use to make candy with and was really sweet! LOL, I didn't find out until 3-4 years later when I was helping a friend do some catering! Boy did I feel stupid! Yet, my husband ate it! ROFLOL

  5. I can't follow recipes at all, so the most difficult thing I've probably ever made was an omelet.

  6. I can't cook at all! I once had to cook cookies for my World History class, and I worked really hard. They turned out okay, but nothing special.

  9. Okay--this is a good one and somewhat embarrassing too...early in my cooking "career", I decided I wanted to contribute to Thanksgiving dinner. I selected a sweet potato souffle recipe. I baked the sweet potatoes precisely as the recipe directed, but they weren't cooked through...when I put them in my stand mixer to mash them, they flew all over my kitchen when I turned it on! Called my mom in tears at my failure. I have since executed this recipe successfully, but the first time was a disaster!

  10. The most difficult recipe I have ever tried was baked chicken. It came out either burnt or undercooked.

  16. The most difficult recipe was when i tried to make my grandmother's perogies. She'd been making them her whole life. Besides being labor intensive, her recipe didn't include measurements!

    was the best mess i ever made!
