Rebecca and I were recently married, and like most newlyweds, we are busy integrating our separate lives into one life together. She has taken charge of turning the house into a home and has done an amazing job. Thanks to her keen eye for design, our things are playing well together. I like to think of Rebecca as an artist and our home as her palette. It is shaping up to be a warm and comfortable place to live.
We are both foodies and one of the wonderful things we discovered is our love of cookbooks. As it turns out, we have 70 of them. I know, know, you can get any recipe online these days, but there is something special about thumbing through a cook book don’t you think?
One of the things Rebecca did with our cook books was dig them out and prominently display them on the counter. This got us thinking about the great food inside and we decided to choose a book each week and prepare one of the recipes inside.
I know it sounds suspiciously like Julie & Julia, the 2009 film starring Amy Adams and Meryl Streep. Yes, we both saw and loved the movie about Julie Powell’s struggle to cook all the recipes in Julia Child’s cook book, but what the heck, it’s all about the food for us.
So come join us at the Daily Tao Blog for a weekly dose of Robert and Rebecca’s adventures in food.
