One, a copy of Julia's classic tome Mastering the Art of French Cooking, has been on my wish-list forEVER. A fiftieth anniversary edition now resides on my nightstand... I've made it as far as the sauce chapter.
I really needed it about a year and four months ago. Ha. I began poring over its pages immediately, trying to soak up every piece of information. You're never too old to learn something new.
This may take awhile, so please be patient with me. I'm aging like everyone else. I have a real life outside of this little blog. I'm technically challenged... code scares me. Ugh, and don't even get me started on the subject of photography.
