Julia Child is one of my favorite of all favorites.  Sur La Table is having a cooking class in honor of her birthday which is August 15.  I would absolutely love to take that cooking class, but I can’t.  You also get Juilia’s book called “My Life in France” if you take that cooking class.  The book is available on Amazon for $10.48.  I definitely am going to get that book.

Coquilles-St.-Jacques

The cooking class honors Julia’s birthday with Julia Child’s best recipes.  The first recipe that was listed for the class is Scallops Gratineed with Wine, Garlic and Herbs or Coquilles St Jacques.

I found Julia’s recipe on line and you can make it in a little baking dish or scallop shell and it is scrumptious.  The recipe is also in Julia Child’s cookbook “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.  I made a new board on my Pinterest called Julia Childs Cooking.  I pinned all the recipes that were in that Julia Child cooking class on that board.

Another recipe in the cooking class is Julia Child’s Cheese Souffle.  I found that recipe and pinned it on Julia Child Pinterest board.

Another recipe in the cooking class is Julia’s Asparagus with hollandaise sauce.  I pinned that recipe on my Pinterest, also.

The last recipe that was in the cooking class was Julia’s Chocolate Mousse.  That mousse has bittersweet Belgian Chocolate, rum and good strong coffee in it.  I pinned that recipe on my Pinterest board, also.

So, all those recipes are some of Julia’s best recipes.  I’m going to try to make each one.  The cheese souffle is a little tricky, but there is a video on youtube that shows all the little tips to make it perfect.

The closest Sur La Table cooking classes to me are Natick and Boston, Massachusetts.  A little far for me to travel but I love having the recipes and just having my own home version of cooking class in my own kitchen.    Love it. ❤

I love the above idea on what to wear for Market Day that I found.  The dress is designer and pure silk.  A little more then I can afford.  The scarf is pure silk, also, and very expensive.  But it gave me inspiration on a style that I like.

I like the above sundress that is affordable and kind of figure flattering and would be fun to wear to a Farmers Market.

The way it gathers on the side is so cute.  Clinton Kelly has the dress on QVC and it’s very affordable.

earrings

The earrings are so cute.  But $250.00 is a little much.

The above earrings on QVC are just as cute and Citrine is my birthstone.   Plus you can get the earrings on 5 easy pay of $16.00.

The Paris Market Book is on Amazon for $11.15.  I would like to add that to my book collection.

And the neat shopping bag is on Amazon for about $50.00.  I have one similar that I got years ago.

But I love the internet as you can find anything you want on it and get inspirations.

I’ve read a lot about the Golden Door Spa in California.  It costs $7,000.00 to go there for 4 days.  One of the meals that they have usually on Thursdays there is the Bento Box.  So, I found “The Golden Door Cooks at Home” cook book which has favorite recipes from the celebrated spa written by Dean Rucker who is a Chef at the Golden Door.  It has all the recipes from the Bento box in the cookbook as well as some awesome recipes and all kinds of spa tips.  It usually costs $40.00 and it was $9.99 on Amazon.  Love it.  ❤

I like the above tip of putting Epsom salts in your bath.  Epsom salts are very inexpensive and work like a charm.  Lavender essential oil makes you sleep better and a few drops on your pillow is supposed to work, also.  I find it too strong a scent for the the pillow idea, though.

And that’s my thoughts for today.
