The Next Julie Powell

I've decided I need to learn how to cook/bake better, and by doing so, I am going to copy Julie Powell and cook all the recipes in one of my cook books. My cook book however, is not "The Art of French Cooking." No, I am not that good, or that commited. My cookbook is called the "I Do Cookbook for the Bride and Groom." by Celia Jolley and Judy Williams. The recipes in it are quick and easy and perfect for two. I've made a few things from it already before I started to do this, and they so far have been really good.

This weekend we had a girl that lived in an area in Sam's mission and her friends stay with us. I decided it was the perfect time to try out one of the appetizers: Apple Dip. Super easy. It's just 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips melted, 1 can of sweetened conden
sed milk, and then add 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon all mixed together. I misjudged and doubled it thinking it wouldn't make that much, but it did. It's pretty good! As easy as it was, I really liked being domestic! I always make the same old things for dinner and rarely bake, so this will be a perfect opportunity to expand my horizon!


  1. Good for you! Maybe you'll inspire me too :)

  2. i am staring at that dip envious and oinkishly

  3. I need a project like this. Are you going to document how you're doing? I hope so because I'd like to know and follow the experience! Are you going to do it every day? Jeez I have a lot of questions because I think it's so cool. I'll have to just talk to you :)

  4. I am not doing it everyday, but I will blog about all of them probably! I'll probably do 1 or 2 a week or so.
