"I'm really not able to start a Julie/Julia thing but I want you to know that I have now tried one recipe from your lovely book (Broccoli Cheese Soup) and it was a big hit."

"I truly adore the book. My friend Cath made cookies from your book and shared them with me and I was so full of joy that I almost called you right there and then. Since, I have made the cookies several times and enjoyed them ever so much!!!"

"Thank you so much for your very beautiful book. It is absolutely stunning. Your layout and Bly's drawings are perfect....I've already tried the blackberry vinegar recipe as I had some blackberry juice frozen from juicing in the fall. What a great way to use it."

"I was SO blown away to get the lovely, LOVELY book."
