Sweeten the Pot - Quickly!

Thanks, guys, for all your suggestions... now just to make sure everyone gives me their very best work, I want to throw in a little prize for best contender. For the winning Julie's New Subtitle Entry, you will receive copies of Julie & Julia and MtAoFC, both signed by me. I think signing MtAoFC is sort of presumptuous, but Eric thinks it's a good idea, and he's my unofficial publicist, so I do what he says. Anyway, it's a good book to have, to cook from or peruse at your leisure.

Only catch is, I need ths subtitle, like, now. Let's say deadline is tomorrow, 5 pm Eastern. So...GO!

Oh, and OH. MY. GOD. Guess who's having an awards ceremony thrown in his honor by New York Stage & Film on Thursday... and guess who's been invited to attend!!!!! It's been so long since I stalked David Strathairn - what on earth will I wear?!

2. How an insane project saved my sanity

3. How I mastered the art of sanity with 524 recipes

You could also, rather than focusing on sanity, say something like:

A project that was my recipe for self-discovery.

BTW, thanks for your book -- I just finished it last week and really enjoyed it!

...the courage to change found through the courage to cook

Mastering my life by mastering Julia

Mastering the art of the journey through the art of french cooking

That's all for now. It's been weeks since I finished your book, and you can't believe how you've inspired me. I have always loved to cook, but now realize it's the preparation, the measuring, the creating, that brings me more joy than the final result. And I'm reading like a fiend now (Don't Try This At Home, Garlic and Sapphires, Appetite for Life...).

But the funny thing is, ever since finishing your book, I kid you not, I can't pull off normal recipes. Fried chicken? UCK - tough and horrible, like rubber. Boiled eggs? Runny and vomitious. My famous spagetti sauce? Bitter, and at the same time, tasteless...But pan-seared scallops in lemon/orange cream sauce? Perfect! Pickeral in a lemon creme sauce? Fabulous! Trout with almonds and lemon? Superb! Lemon Vermicelli? Out of this world!

Anyway, you have inspired me (and not just in the cooking department), and I'll be watching this blog. If I have any more ideas on your subtitle, I'm home all day and will be checking in.

If I was the lucky person to win the books, they will be the most prized possesions in my kitchen. Even more so than the fabulous whisk my husband bought me a few days ago!

How's about...

L'Oeuf American Style,

or another less esoteric "mastering" submission ...

Mastering the Fine Art of Life, Love and Self Discovery

I just finished the book, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the the pleasure and unique opportunity to live with Julia for several years before she left Cambridge. You captured her voice and verve perfectly. She was a remearkable woman whom, one reporter's provocative comments aside, I'm sure would have appreciated your pluck and spirit. Thanks for a great read.
