doggybloggy said...

monica: not that day and yes....

Jamie said...

That video is hysterical! And last time we went mushroom hunting we realized that our dog found - and scarfed down - every edible mushroom in our path before we found it!

Great cookbook!

mermayd said...

Hey now you can cook just like Julia Child! Drool, talk alot, throw food everywhere and end up with a delicious and beautiful dish.....oh, wait..you already do that

Ciao Chow Linda said...

I have that cookbook and it's wonderful. Try the butterflied and grilled lamb in it - always a winner for summer barbeques.

Katherine Aucoin said...

When you plant the purple flowers and make the jelly, send me some!

Harmony said...

Yesterday's news today? I love that!

The video made me chuckle "No mushrooms yet" I hope it worked out for you, something tells me it did.

Pooja said...

Hope you found few mushrooms :) Wow jelly with purple flowers? Amazing..waiting eagerly for that post :)

Spin said...

You're looking like you enjoyed the walk anyway, wasn't just a day or later when you found them?

Sweta said...

I have two Indian cookbooks that are gathering dust somewhere-nowadays,I look up recipes on the net!!Duh-huh?

The Diva on a Diet said...

A classic book for sure. Sweet!

How did the purple jelly turn out? Curious Diva wants to know.

Also, I must thank you for the red onion tea cure ... I've been having it every day and it really does help. Thank you, thank you!! :)

She is legendary... I made jelly once- Jalapeno, both red and green.. A lot of work, but came out great..

oneshotbeyond said...

Lucky! She's got some great stuff in there I'd bet!

jamie: they are starting to use dogs to find truffles because the pigs snarf em down -never heard that about a dog..

merm: looks like somebody needs their own comedy show...and I would be upset if it wasnt true...

ciao: I saw that one and it caught my eye instantly

katherine: foraging for the violets hot gardening- you might have them around you if you look - they are wild

harmony: this was made before I found them so yes it did work out

pooja: mine came out more like a syrup -

spin: the very next day

sweta: all my cookbooks gather dust...

the diva: jelly cam out more like a syrup but still nice and I am glad the 'mixture' helped

burp: today or maybe tomorrow

buff: I have made jellies in the past but like I have mentioned this was more syrupy - I didnt use packaged pectin I made my own from boiled down apples

oneshot: some really great stuff!

Nice book!

A walk in the woods sounds about perfect right now...

Marjie said...

Always wonderful to find a great book!

Jenn said...

I want that book. =)

That jelly does sound very very scrumptious. I can see the determination in your eyes as you forage for them mushrooms.

ARUNA said...

wow looks like a very classic cookbook!!! Did u make the jelly yet??

Donna-FFW said...

I acn see you are always UP for a good challenge.

Lotsa luck in your endeavor.

Tangled Noodle said...

I'm on a book (of any kind) buying moratorium for the time being so it's 3-week loaners for me. Judging from the bounty on the table from your 'wine caps' post, the 'no mushrooms yet' situation was soon resolved.

BTW, I jumped over to CCL's site and have fallen in loved with the violet jelly!

Pam said...

Love that cookbook - Julia is the best.

Hope you found some mushrooms.

Mely (mimk) said...

Well, no mushrooms but a good classic cookbook makes a good day for any foodie. At least it will do it for me. :)

Have a nice day, love reading your posts.

Reeni♥ said...

Ramya Vijaykumar said...

Hey its so interesting to see you venture on t hunt mushroom ;) okay now those are days where we getta do that and my grammy used to sort out those that she could use and the rest we never let them go but used to play ;) That book looks like a nice one...

Giff said...

Nice to have met you tonight at the Foodbuzz bash!

5 Star Foodie said...

Hope you find some more mushrooms. That cookbook looks like good read!

pinknest said...

awesome, awesome book!!

Gina said...

First of all thanks for the heart- felt comments on my blog about my experiences....I appreciate your comments

second....during my travels back and forth between Chicago and home I listened to the audio book of Julie's memoir...unabridged...it was absolutely wonderful... the reader had a marvelous voice...and it was an auditory treat just to hear the french pronounciation of the dishes or menu....as you know...I'm no cook...but I was absolutely inspired by her story...especially the part where she mentioned she didn't start cooking till she was in her forties. There's hope for me yet...LOL>>>

So you may want to give the audio book a try....

Jamie said...

Yes, I know they use dogs now for truffle hunting - I live in France and they put stuff like that on the news all the time (like it is always news!). Yet you will notice that they never use Boston Terriers :-)
