Bon Appetite!

Just for the record. I am a baker. I bake. Quite well.

Exhibit (A)

What I do not claim to be is a cook. Mr. Cupcake is the chef of the house. He is quite good too. I am grateful for his skillz. Yo. So Mr. C and I were watching TV one night and we were captivated by old reruns of Julia Child's cooking show. We were instantly in love with her. One of the best episodes is where she is teaching all about all the different chicken sizes and their uses. Just great. I really wanted to get her book, you know the one. The one used in the adorable movie Julie and Julia. I love that movie! It really disillusioned me into thinking I could follow her recipes too! Well the adorable Rocketgirl herself gifted me the book! It is so cute! So, thank you RG for the wonderful treat! But it scares me beyond the cover.

Thank you so much for this RG! I will need some prayer...from a lot of folks for my cooking adventures to come...

OH MY WORD...that is a CrAzY looking Julia...I think she would have been a very entertaining friend...the one who says things, and has no idea, why everyone is in stitches {hmm...I don't mean because of the butcher knife...}
I love your book. If you find any fab recipes, do shoot them this way...Bon appetite!...Rosie
P.S. I shall dream of that cake for many nights to come...Ahhhh...scrumpdillyious!

Well...the french twins are now creamy white...and can be crossed off the "to do" list. When I purchased these sweet end tables I just assumed they were a flimsy repro, as I bought them site unseen{just an email}...sent my son and his buddy to pick up the estate,hoping it was good stuff.{these were just extras I picked up, so really didn't matter} Well, the ladies are quite lovely, and their cousin{a french provincial coffee Table} is having a make over tomorrow.
Hey I am considering doing a Black and White Tuesday post,for all to join into...I'll do it tomorrow, and if you would like to play, please do...well must wash off the paint as we are heading out for supper.
Have you tried any recipes...keep me Rosie
