When we first meet Julie, she's a frustrated temp-to-perm secretary who slaves away at a thankless job, only to return to an equally demoralizing apartment in the outer boroughs of Manhattan each evening. At the urging of Eric, her devoted and slightly geeky husband, she decides to start a blog that will chronicle what she dubs the "Julie/Julia Project." What follows is a year of butter-drenched meals that will both necessitate the wearing of an unbearably uncomfortable girdle on the hottest night of the year, as well as the realization that life is what you make of it and joy is not as impossible a quest as it may seem, even when it's -10 degrees out and your pipes are frozen.
Powell is a natural when it comes to connecting with her readers, which is probably why her blog generated so much buzz, both from readers and media alike. And while her self-deprecating sense of humor can sometimes dissolve into whininess, she never really loses her edge, or her sense of purpose. Even on day 365, she's working her way through Mayonnaise Collee and ending the evening "back exactly where we started--just Eric and me, three cats and Buffy...sitting on a couch in the outer boroughs, eating, with Julia chortling alongside us...."

I found Julie to be "full of herself" and totally disgusting regarding the cleanliness in her kitchen.
It made me sick
I picked this up while I was stuck at a job for four days with no internet access. I thought that I might like it because, as with so many other people in these reviews, I enjoyed... Read morePublished 5 months ago by Kelly Schwickrath
I freely admit I read this book because I adored the movie. It is one of my go-to movies to make me feel good, though I love the scenes with Julia better than the ones with Julie. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Garnet
We absolutely love this movie, and have watched it several times since we got it. We especially love the way Meryl Streep is helped to appear taller than she is. Read morePublished 5 months ago by D. Catanzaro
