Julie and Julia Movie

Have you seen the movie, Julie, and Julia? That movie has inspired me in many ways, yes food blogging was one of them. The other was Julia Child herself, seeing her when she was starting out in the Julie and Julia movie,  showed me anything is possible.

Julie and Julia Movie Saying

One of my favorite sayings in the movie Julie and Julia is:

Julia Child wasn’t always Julia Child.

It is true, we all start out somewhere in life and work to be the person we are. I love that Julie and Julia movie saying!

Do you recall that bruschetta from Julie and Julia? Julie was pan searing the tomato bruschetta for her dinner with her husband. Her husband remarked how good it was?



Julia Child Bruschetta

That Julia Child bruschetta did look amazing in the Julie and Julia movie. I wanted to make that Italian bruschetta recipe.



Cherry Tomato Bruschetta

I decided the best way to pan sear this tomato bruschetta was with cherry tomatoes. Making a cherry tomato bruschetta would be the best bruschetta recipe.

    I love bruschetta, but have never seen it made in a pan – leave it to Julia Child though! I think she was an inspiration for many of us, and I am glad the movie helped inspire you during a difficult time. This dish is my kind of bite!

    Awesome movie and awesome dish! I love your tips on how to make the flavor pop. Something about all of that deliciousness topped on a piece of crusty bread that just does it for me. I’m so glad you found your inspiration again!

    I love your story! I have been going through something similar in that I have been in a depression and neglected my blog for almost two years. Cooking and writing brings new life to me and I love how you brought new life to bruschetta. I need to find some cherry balsamic vinegar!
