Hi Julie. I just wanted you to know that for New Year's Eve, I am making Beouf Bourginon. (if that is the way it is spelled, haha) Also I am watching the movie again for the 3rd time. When I see a movie that has meaning, it stays with me for a time and now I'm wearing fake pearls. lol. I wore them to Curves for exercise this morning. What a crack up. Oh well, Merry Christmas. Take care.

Julie,
It is so interesting to see the responses to "Cleaving". I am reading the book right now, and while I don't necessarily agree with your actions, I think you were very courageous to write the book and can see how you used the process of writing to work through your problems and to come out the other side. I think people are so afraid of the things you wrote about, and that is why you've had such strong responses. I also wanted to say that I have been married to a man I started dating at 18. We've now been together for 20 years, married for 14, and are in the process of divorcing - my decision. I wish I had the strength that you and Eric have shown by staying together even in the midst of such pain and chaos. As you know, it is so complicated when you grow up together like that - when your entire adult life is spent intertwined with another person. So maybe that is why I understand and can relate to your book better than others. Anyway... keep writing. I am sorry to see this book end. I will miss it. And Merry Christmas!

Now, tell me, do you and your husband own a plane too? lol

Beside all jokes, you've inspired me, blogging can really get you far. I'm a writer myself, but I just blog my poetry out, not anything else, so from now on, I'll create a blog, maybe one day I'll say you've inspired me and you'll say I'm not respectable... Who knows?

Julie --

I enjoyed the film based on your earlier blog and work life. However, I found the insults to Republicans to be bigoted. There is a scene where you did not show up for work and the boss is, rightly, concerned, but, does not fire you because, he is not a "schmuck, a Republican." Interesting. Mayor Bloomberg who was his boss at the time was a Republican -- and won a big election to succeed Rudy Guiliani, who was, ahem, a Republican. Then there were the idiotic attacks on "McCarthyism." FYI, Alger Hiss, et al, were indeed exposed as communist spies working for the State Department. Even President Truman -- a Democrat, and, presumably, in your ontology, not a schmuck -- had the government investigate its personnel for communist ties during this era. The communists killed hundreds of millions of men, women and children in Russia, the Ukraine and China. But they are not schmucks, apparently, for you and Nora Ephron.

Just in a response to Father Gene, I believe the movie was about blogging and cooking, any political opinions was, actually, more jokes than opinions, about McCarthysm, the critic is from Julia Child, not Julie, watch it again... And one great critic of the same scene was for political fanatism, watch out for this may be your case... sorry for the bad english, I'm brazillian

Hello Julie, I loved every page of "Julie and Julia" which I read right after reading "My Life in France". I just bought "Cleaving" even though I have read a ton of bad reviews. I don't really understand what all these folks are so shocked and uptight about. It was clear to me from your first book that you have a dirty mouth and that you talk way too much. I think that is what people probably like about you. Have a Merry Christmas. Hope all is going well with Eric. The cow is great.

Hi Julie, I never thought I would be doing this, but here I am .. I watch the movie and I just love it. I'm only fifteen, and I'm kind of interested in cooking, what I'm about to tell you is so ridiculous but here it goes, I took a quiz a few months ago, I can't really remember when, but this quiz was about what your future job, or something like that, would be, and guess what? I got CHEF. At the moment I was confused because almost everybody I know, mostly grown up people, had told me that I'm going to be a lawyer, even one of my teachers and that was when I was in 3rd grade! But I wasn't really convinced that being a lawyer was what I wanted to be, although I'm too young to be thinking in such a thing, well I started cooking for myself, just simple food and then I discovered I little piece of interest in cooking wich turn to grow and grow and right now after watching this movie, I can say (or write) that I am convinced that cooking is what I love the most, and I want to start doing it in the right way. Today I help my mother to prepare our christmas dinner and it always taste good, but when I'm preparing something I'm always afraid of adding salt and pepper because I don't want it to be too salty or spicy, what can I do to beat this fear? It will sound nonsense but that's why I'm writing this to you, and because I want to start cooking from the heart and not just because I want to prove myself something. I want to learn and love it.
And Merry Christmas !

I've been lurking here for too long, and must finally comment. I loved your first book, went back and read the entire original blog, and bought the (audio version, thankfully unabridged!) of Cleaving as soon as I could. I love your frankness, your voice in prose (but your speaking voice completely brings your prose entirely to blessedly-sarcastic life), and found Cleaving to be an amazing journey, literally and figuratively. I've read a ton of reviews of Cleaving, mostly after the fact (no review was going to keep me away - I identified with your point of view in the blog too much to give a shit about reviews, forget about so-called TMI) and find most of them to be myopic and far too (easily? Or safely?) judgmental. You don't need my validation - which is another thing I dig about you. Keep writing - there's a ton of us out here that will read anything you write.

Oh, and changing the header of your blog to the "libidinous shrew" line from that review? Fucking genius.

Keep on keepin' on girl. We're out here, hungry for more. No pressure, though - I can re-read (or re-listen) to everything of yours already in print and be entirely entertained, and challenged, at the same time.

Cheers!

Blogger Jody said...

I guess I'll have to say it again.

Cleaving is an awful book. And Julie Powell is an awful person.

She admits in the first few pages she owes a great deal of success to Eric, her husband.

So what does she do? She cheats on him with the same guy she cheated on him with in college.

And then writes a good for everyone to know all about it.

Nice way to repay him. Real nice.

I was told by people that I am engaged in an endeavor similar to "The guy from 'Super size Me," and "Just like Jared, the Subway guy (I loathed that one), and "like 'Julie & Julia." I heard of the movie, but had no idea it was based on a true blog until 3 weeks ago. I just finished watching the movie, and was thoroughly entertained, and tortured - I was craving every meal in the film.

I have taken leave of my desires and embarked on a six month vegan quest. Me, a passionate carnivore, going vegan deserved to be written about.

I hope you find it entertaining.

Dear Julie,

I didn't want to read Cleaving at first, because I loved the happy Buffy-watching, French-food eating, wine-guzzling couple I first met in Julie & Julia. Then I grew up a little. Life ain't a romance novel. It takes real courage to be that open and honest with yourself and your readers. For those that think it was TMI, I can't imagine the butchery making sense without the emotional context. It wasn't a comfortable read, but it was worth the discomfort, if that makes sense.

Keep writing. I'll keep reading. (I'm sure you're vastly relieved.)

Oh, and have a very merry Christmas!

Hey Julie!!
I just recently watched your movie and it was incredible, I am now 29 and it brought me right back to when I was 4 and cooking with my now deceased grandmother, Ive been told by my family that I used to demand as soon as I went to her house that I wanted to watch Julia, so watching your movie was both moving and inspirational. Giving me the needed push to get back into cooking which is something that I love!!! My one question is which book at least in the movie were you reading about Julia???? Ive found her autobiography very interesting, considering her mothers parents lived once 5 feet up the st. from me in Dalton Ma, and were the founders of The Weston Mill which is currently across the street from my house!! Thanks for being such an inspiration and giving me back something I had given up on!! Hope you and yours had a fabulous holiday!!! Take Care!!!

Good morning from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. A lot of things can be said about you, your book , the movie, the inspiration you gave ang still give to people, to let you know my wife and I are food lovers from the day we were born, etc, etc. But I think you are a person who would (also) like a complete new cooking challenge;

My wife and me originate from to complete different cooking culture: i have belgian (french speaking part) roots and my wife has Vietnamese roots although she (and her family) live in The Netherlands since her 2th birth year or so. But there is a clear french connection regarding the food-part between us; since Vietnam was a former French colony as you might now. The also call the Vietnamese cuisine the French kitchen from Asia since its varieaty is enormous, vert tasty, healthy and fresh. You really should dig in that cookking culture its great. Anyway, we travel a lot around Europe and Asia and our main goal is always to taste and to find as many different things about food as we can. Our last trip was Basque Country (e.a. St. Sebastien) and that Juli is great you gotta go there!

Our next stop is New York and besides visiting the city we also would like to tase NY. Maybe you have time to just spend some minutes and a good dish with us and maybe we could introduce and talk about some ideas we have which can connect with yours.

I LOVED "Juliet and July". Greatest movie since "The Hangover". Even greater than "Saw VI". Hope that make a movie out of "Cleaver". Maybe James Cameron can make a 3D production? Can't you see the cleaver hurdling toward your forehead? Wowee!

Just wanted to say I was reading your salon blog pretty early on (not quite the beginning, but around there) and had totally forgotten about it until I saw the movie my wife bought.

It's inspired me to go check out the book you wrote, and perhaps go re-read the blog :)

I was surprised at the vitriol some people have - anyone expecting you to be a serious cook was obviously not reading it.

Julie! (: do you read all your comments? I'm just wondering because I'd really like to have your email address; I have a lot I (maybe) want to say. that is, as long as I can get past my shyness.
I haven't read your entire blog, but that's only because I just now watched the movie. I definitely want to at some time though!
so, if you have the time, please do email me. :D thanks!

Julie! Huge fan from Hawaii. I've been cooking for years with great enthusiasm, but getting drawn into the movie made about your blog has inspired me to develop my skills and educate myself even more about the art of cooking. My husband bought me The Art of French Cooking for Christmas with the promise to pay for all the ingredients for any recipe I choose. I've been reading it like a novel in hopes of picking the perfect one (any suggestions?). And...I think of you (and Julia) every time I open it.

Happy New Year!

I hope you head to Maui one day for some kind of book reading or another. I'll be there if you do!

I just saw the movie Julie & Julia and thanks a lot, I'm now starving. The thing is, I can't cook. I've managed to burn pancakes before and I was standing there watching them. Maybe one day I'll attempt a Julia Child recipe although I think my husband will be confused. I imagine he'll be all, "What's this? Where's the frozen pizza we usually have?"

Hey Julie, I'm reading the new book now - I admit - it's tough read (thus far, but NOT due to bad writing I assure you) and you have put yourself out there in such gut-wrenching fashion. I had a thought though, perhaps you should create a "Butcher girl Barbie". Your adventures at Fleischer's are to be envied, and yes... I will try pork cheeks!

Got sucked into your movie last night as I was reading in bed while my wife watched it. After some rooting around the intertubes today, I can't help but see your story as Julia did: a stunt. A stunt that will, sadly, have the effect of reducing yet another legend, and their body of work, to little more than bite sized trivialities suitable for consumption by media addicted office drones who make American Idol a #1 show.

Congratulations on successfully launching yourself to your fifteen minutes off of the back of an American legend.

Hey, Kenny. I normally don't respond to posts like yours, because, you know, you absolutely have the right to your opinion and I'm totally cool with you expressing it here. But I'm feeling oddly drugged out or loopy or something today, and feel the urge to respond.

I always think it's hilarious that anyone would think that I sat up in bed one day in 2002 and said, "Hey, I'm going to start a blog about cooking my way through MtAoFC because then I'll be FAMOUS!!!!" I didn't have any idea what a blog even WAS, really. (I was way more clueless than the Amy Adams version of me in the movie.) I wasn't thinking "book deal." I had no notion that anyone other than, say, my mother and half a dozen friends would even read the damned thing. I did it because I was desperately unhappy and frustrated, and I needed to have something in my life that could ease that, and because Julia Child so inspired me, just as she has so many thousands of others. Everything that came after came because of Julia's inspiration - that and a good deal of luck.

One of the great things that Julia taught me over the course of that year was that the person one has to answer to is oneself. I know that the project came out of my gratitude and love for Julia, and I know how much she means to me. That's what allowed me to get over her feelings about what I'd done, and it certainly helps me not give much of a shit what the kind of people who come searching me out in order to express their contempt think.

I also think that it's odd that the very people who are benefitting from the enormous increase in sales of Mastering, or of, say the Judith Jones memoir pegged to the release of the movie, accuse me of being exploitative. I am so, so proud of any part I may have had in reintroducing Julia Child to younger people, to people in other countries, to anyone who for whatever reason hadn't realized before what an extraordinary woman she was. I'm pleased her book sales are the highest they've beenin 25 years. But I don't think there's much of anything I could do to diminish her legacy - that'd be like trying to knock down Mt. Everest with a toothbrush. I'm a little flattered you think I have that much power, honestly....

I may be the only person here who has neither read Julie & Julia nor seen the movie. You met my friend Carol in San Francisco at your book reading. She was so impressed by you that she gobbled up the book you'd signed with a very funny and touching message. As soon as she finished reading Cleaving, Carol sent it to me noting that I, of all the people she knows, would understand or at least relate to Cleaving.

Carol was right.

As I read the book, I was struck by some incredible similarities right down to your A.W. ringtone. There were times when I had to put the book down because it was too much, too eerily similar. There were parts of the book that made me not like you, just as I've had moments where I am not too fond of myself (for the same reasons).

Ultimately, the big question of "why" that I suppose you get hit with constantly is quite unanswerable, even when one has been in situations like yours or mine or that person sitting over there hoping that no one guesses their secrets. I admit, I found myself reading along, wondering if you would answer the "why" and yet knowing full well that you would have no answer for it. I know I don't.

I am a fan of your writing style and will now go backward and read Julie and Julia.

I wish you both success and peace, as you define it.

Hi Julie. I just watched the movie and found it to be very moving. I 44 years of age practically grew up with Julia. But the most vivid memory for me was not her weekly show, but the neighbor across the street, who without fail would watch,follow and prepare the dish scheduled eachday with Julia while she was on TV. The best one though was when her daughter came over for a sleepover and we served hot dogs and she asked " what are those" we laughed and laughed as kids.... Continued success!

hey Julie, my name is Florencia, I'm 18 years old and I'm from Argentina. today I saw the movie, your movie, and I don't know if it's just the same as things happened to you, but I wanted to tell you that I loved your story. I loved the whole thing, it left me with something like nostalgy ... I would like to have met any of you. i think it's awsome the way you managed to get away from your sadness or whatever it was, it was awsome the way you recovered from your routine. I found it amazing, in many reasons, one of them is because you challenged yourself, and you could do it ! i would like to challenge myself like that and surprise me too ! i found it amazing because I see my parents sometimes, and they also have bad days, or the stuck in their routines, and it's not so easy to get out from there, i mean it's not so simple to find your time in the day, doesn't mater how long it lasts, to do anything you want, that makes you feel good. I hope someday, when I'll be elder, I hope I can find my thing to do, just like you did with kitchen.
by the way, I'm awful doing housework. see, I felt so touched by your story that tomorrow I'm going to cook pasta ! isn't it awsome? i think so. my mother is thanking you a lot, Lol! your story brought me lots of energies for my holidays. I've just lost my grandpa, and as if it wasn't enough! I finished school, and that's a bit depressing for me. that's another story, I'll tell you some day if you want to get in touch with me, if you have nothing else to do. I actually feel good, I wanted yo to know it.
and to see that your blog was real, that your story was real, not a fantasy like most of the movies, that was really lovely. I don't know if you're still checking out the comments, I'm sure that many people wanted to tell you their stories, like me. I don't care, I just wanted you to know that I felt a conection, and I had a feeling, I felt like writing to you. It would be nice if you could see it. maybe someday we'll chat togheter, nobody knows, but thank you for making me feel good, and giving me a grateful time while watching your story on tv.
Sorry if my English is bad !
thank you for the last time, have a happy New Year, and greetings from Argentina !

PD.: I left you the same comment in another post, oh my God It's so embarassing that i didn't post it on the right post for God Sake ! I'm laughing nonstop.

I apologize if this has been answered before, but I searched around and couldn't find the answer.

Last week my husband and I watched Julie & Julia and while we enjoyed it very much, we were highly disappointed at the disingenuous, cheap shots at Republicans. When Julie's chef says that if he was a Republican he'd fire her--we just looked at each other, incredulous. What kind of idiotic comemnt was that? And, of course, there was Senator McCarthy, the favorite target of the Left, getting ripped off for persecuting poor lil' Mr. Child... What the movie "forgets" to explain is that McCarthy's committee followed a much earlier one. You'll get a painted cow if you figure who created it--a committee that investigated Hollywood types too, by the way! Bobby Kennedy--yup, one of the biggest icons of the American Left! The problem with McCarthy, we now know, is that he actually underestimated the number of commies who infested the FDR administration. And he NEVER investigated actors, as it is always implied, no matter what you read. Writers also fail to mention the Venona Project, that has yet to be completely decoded, but already gives a chilling account of the amount of communists in Washington; and that McCarthy didn't belong to the HUAC, because he was a SE-NA-TOR! Well, the stupid little attacks on Republicans made transparent that the movie director--and maybe Julie too?--had an agenda. I thought Julie & Julia was made to entertain viewers, not as another brainwashing left wing propaganda movie from Hollywood. Pity I was wrong.

Hi Julie. My name is Anne-Caroline Brown and I wanted to let you know that your story inspired me so much that I have also decided to cook my way thru Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I recently lost my job (which was a good thing) and thought that I might also find the inspiration for my next big thing through embarking on this project. I love cooking and find that it is a time to think and laugh and enjoy. When I read your book a few months ago, I absolutely loved it and found it to be one of the sweetest, most inspiring books Ihave ever read. At the urging of my friends, I have also set up a blog.... julieandjuliaandac.blogspot.com .... stop by and check it out if you get a chance. I hope you don't mind that I am being a copycat.... My fiance gave me Julia's cookbook for Christmas, along with a beautiful Staub dutch oven and outfitted our kitchen with a Bose Wave system so I think it will be fun. Wish me luck!!

Wow, such a wealth of interesting comments today! To "Nobody" - I had nothing to do with the writing of the screenplay, and I don't discuss McCarthy in the book, but yup, there's no question there's Republican-bashing in there. To me it's less about propaganda and more about character-making. Julie Powell in 2002 was a very frustrated woman, and one of the many things that most frustrated and frightened her was the GWB administration. She was vocal and knee-jerk in her criticism of said establishment - that's just an aspect of who she was at that time. (She, of course, being me seven years ago....) As for the McCarthy stuff, well, that's just what Julia Child wrote about in her book My Life in France. Nora Ephron wasn't making that up. Anyway, really fascinating to see a pro-McCarthy-ite up in this mug....

TERESA!!!!!! I love, love, LOVE my cow! I just fell in love with it and bought though I hadn't the money for it, and I've never regretted it for a moment. You are AMAZING, and I worship at YOUR altar.

Anne-Caroline: Great good luck to you! A project like this can really turn things around when you're in a rut, I'm here to tell you.... Have a great time.

Wow, it's really "you"! I just bought the dvd & loved the movie! I've been a Julia fan since I was a kid, and cooking happened to me much like you. My catalyst: the Food Network! Ok, so I started my own blog yesterday too & started a family cook book 2 yrs ago. I'm a typical career-bored frustrated writer/wife mom of a 22 yr old. I got a dose of Julie courage & just did it. Some cool things about the movie; in the "Cobb Salad" scene (hilarious), your character wears a copper poodle pin. I have the same one-my dad gave it to me in the mid-60's. Then. It gets better. The Paris apt. scene after the Val Day dinner "Julia" is cooking and places a blue casserole dish in the tiny oven-my mom just gave me the twin dish she received from the former owners of our old house. When I saw the scene I ran from the kitchen, holding the dish saying "Look! OMG! It's meant to be! I have her casserole." Mine is at least 65-80 years old, and I'm posting a pic of it on Facebook shortly. Julie, you are a wonderful inspiration & the book is fantastic! Bon appetite!

The part I find interesting is the more or less complete separation of comments here.

From the people reacting to Julie/Julia (either the book or the movie), Julie Powell is a wonderful person.

From those reacting to Cleaving, the opinion is far less glowing (and I am trying to be as fair as I can here).

It's like there are two different women having written two different books.

Amazing.

Hello Julie,

I got your movie as a christsmas gift and it was wonderful I know I'll be watching it over and over...As for the "Cow Painting" I think I know what the draw is, It's the use of sun light, how it shines just so, and Yes the paintings are wonderful and the artist is very talented. I think you might like an artist by the name of Winifred Godfrey. Her work is just wonderful the website is www.godfreyart.com and look at the flower paintings I think you will see what I mean.

Take care and may you be blessed...

Julie,
I feel sort of lame talking to you this way- but yet really inspired by the movie I just happened to watch- Julie & Julia. (I think you may have heard of it..) Anyhow, in the midst of being a recent grad with no job in my future; I also have obtained a degree in creative writing- I feel really compelled to tell you how much your story warmed my heart. It gave me a bit of hope that maybe my dream of writing isn't completely worthless, and that maybe something really great is at the end of my road.

It's a real bitter world out there, job-wise, especially when you're knee-deep in debt! I just wanted to express my deep gratitude for your story. I feel like everyday, each of us, is searching for something to fill us up. Some, like me, are starving because they spend too much time deciding what to eat, where to eat, and how to do it all. Hope this 'analogy' makes sense. Needless to say, I am a confused 22 year-old who feels a wee bit better now. Next cover letter, here I come!!

Hope you had a lovely Christmas!

Julie,
I just read your book and I must say, you are the embodiment of the self-absorbed, narcissistic "woe-as me" mentality. When writing this book, you had a roof over your head, a job, food on the table, parents who supported you (literally), friends, and a loving husband who put up with your abject selfishness. Tell me, what in your life was so horrific that you decided that the only cure was to take the writings of a respected, talented chef and turn them into a showcase of self-congratulation? Don't get me wrong, I tried very hard to keep my feelings neutral as I have never met you in person, yet with every turn of the page your writing smacked more and more of a spoiled, petulant child who needed attention. I should have known when the vacuous, unimaginative atrocity that is "Cosmopolitan" magizine gave it a glowing review, that it would fall woefully short of being anything but the usual "chick-lit". Thanks for reinforcing what I already suspected.

Hi Julie. Enjoyed watching J&J again on cable. I had the pleasure of meeting Julia Child in 2000 for a function at the hospital I work for. Her father John was on the Board of Directors in the 1950s. She was charming, gracious, with a wonderful sense of humor. Her favorite breakfast food she said, was 'bacon.' Of course, the virtues of butter were extolled too. She advocated not allowing food that has been prepared to cool off, lest the chef's feelings be hurt, when serving guests. She autographed my 11th Edition of Mastering the Art Vol I. I still use it frequently. Recently had guests from France to dinner, and they loved Julia C's cassoulet! Will try the Floating Island recipe soon. Looking forward to purchasing your book! Take care! Looking forward to more fun cooking in 2010.

There is nothing, absolutely NOTHING wrong with wanting to have some fun in life. The fact that people thought her project was interesting enough to turn into a book & movie was... a freak accident, and very cool for Julie, but just I'm amazed that you took the time to look up her current blog to write and insult someone who has way more of a life force than you is well... sad.

Julie, I'm impressed you keep on blogging...you know, you ARE famous now!
I'm a wanna'be writer too, although I'm starting at 67 years old. Writing a screenplay...based on my my sailboat dream of running away and sailing off into the sunset.

Husband lost job at 64, we sold everything, house, car, furniture, and went to the Caribbean and bought a sailboat. We had to take one week lessons to learn to sail our 44 foot sailboat, the Blue Feather. Inspired by Richard Bach's book, Illusions. We lived on it for a year, and going broke quickly. Sold it and it sank in the ocean being delivered to South America. Are we lucky??
Anyway, it's late here in Kansas City, and my mind needed a break, and I wanted to see if you were still blogging. Saw the movie and as I'm cooking an Apple Tart, from Julia's cookbook, I think of you. I'm doing good to cook Julia four times a year. I'm impressed. You did it!

By the way, your writing style is original and creative. You sound like a person that would be fun to hang out with.

Hope to meet you someday.

I'll start off by saying that I really enjoyed Julie & Julia. I thought it was engaging and entertaining. I'm reading Cleaving now. While I find it well written, I'm very disappointed in you as a person. For a man that you say "completes" you, I find it unfathomable that you could cheat on him and then be so flippant about it. I'm sure he's not perfect, but surely you remember how much crap he put up with during your French cooking project. Has fame so bloated your ego and sense of self that you forgot where you came from?

I really hope that you get your act together and realize that a marriage requires work. Don't throw your years together to the wayside because of this fame. Remember that it's fleeting.

I finished the book a few weeks ago and last night watched the movie. Oh wow, what can I say. Loved it. It quickly climbed to the top of my favs list. I always loved Julia Child, emulating her as a young child, even in mundane tasks of making toast. Loved her. Love you. I felt like we knew each other and when you said that you never finish things and that it's because you have ADD. I laughed out loud and my husband looked at me and said, "oh brother" because that's me. I have never finished a thing except for a small children's book I've written but only received rejections. You've inspired me to choose something, to find and choose my gift and go with it. I need to complete something and I may just blog about it as well. If only I could figure out what that gift is. Thank you for being you.

We were very disappointed in the anti-Republican commentary that we felt inappropriate for the theme of the movie. Our money is green, too, and being offended for our beliefs does not make us want to run out and buy the book or recommend the movie. Happy New Year to you, and please leave the butter in and politics out.

Love the cow. Love the way the sun shines on him. Actually, isn't that a bull? LOL anyway, did you buy the painting?

I just watched your movie for the first time and I LOVED IT. I'm only 16, but that was the coolest thing to do ever. I love cooking, baking especially. I found your original blog, and loved it. Im looking forward to purchasing your book today! Happy Cooking!

Hello Julie - just watched the movie and it was so inspiring to me. I'm a freelance writer, stuck in a rut and I totally identified with your story. Finding a role model, finding a purpose and sticking with it. I would have given up if my husband was mad at me but you carried through. I was so sorry that Julia Child found your project to be a "stunt". She was just of a different generation. Thank you for having the courage to take a great idea and see if through from beginning to end. Love from Calgary AB

Cindy;

I am guessing "Cleaving" isn't on sale yet in Canada.

Find yourself a copy (or just google "Julie Powell Cleaving Review"), read the first few chapters. I'd hazard a guess that you might want be so quick to name Julie Powell as a role model.

Sorry to burst your bubble on this but that's the way it is.

Hi Julie,
I just watched your movie and loved it! You inspires me in so many ways, thank you for telling your stories and finishing your project! I am at a stage where I am hitting a lot of road blocks with my new business, every step seems like a mountain to climb. But my spirit and determination is lifted after I saw your movie seeing how you and Julia both believe in yourselves/passion and achieve your dream! I am going to continue to blog and dream....

I completely agree. Teresa is wonderful. Her paintings are mesmerizing. She took a subject that many find ugly and made it beautiful.

I can relate to your struggles as I just did 27 drawings for "My First Christian ABC Book" and helped to get the book published. Luck to you in the future and now you have to deal with the fame thing. Also if you like cows try me. I can't imagine the ugly cow comment. Anyone out there really think God's creatures are ugly?
http://www.cafepress.com/holsteinart. I loved your story and admire Julia. At 90 maybe she did not understand your admiration for her. I think she would be proud.

I wanted to say thank you. I made the Beef Bourguignon this week. OMG was it heaven. Thank you for making the magic happen.

Over and over again. Keep up the good work! I am jotting down recipes to extend the Bourguigon sauce like on a filet, over a beef ravioli and a ladled skinless hot dog in a puff pastry. ;)

Check out a video of the dish I was so proud of on youtube /watch?v=4YBIiDinLjk . I made a homemade salad dressing with Pinot Noir to contrast along with a bread butter with the thyme and other focal ingredients.


Thank you.

Michael

Hi Julie! I just saw Julie & Julia and I was in shock when I heard Eric Powell and Archaeology! I worked with Eric at Arky for 2 years and I met you a couple of times. OMG, your book is soo good and the movie is awesome! I was kind of slow putting two and two together. Congratulations on your success and say HI to Eric!
