You should buy Mastering the Art of French Cooking. You can make those dishes and they are delicious but they do take a long time. Good luck!

Wow! I never knew Julia was only 32 when she started...so inspiring. Your pictures are also so inspiring...man, I love those copper pendants and the black & brass ones!! Great!

Insanely gorgeous images - saving them all, OK?
That quote from Julia Child really resonated with me when I read My Life in France, recently. Maybe because it gives me hope that a) I have plenty of time to work towards my passions and b) Do you know how much "older" being in your thirties was in the 40's? 'nuff said!

Empanadas...perfect choice! And having a place to create food like any of your images would be a nice bonus, too!

Happy empanadas!

Love the kitchen images. Love that Viking stove. I dream of that Viking stove. But, alas, I'm 56 and still can't cook! Maybe if I had that stove I would be inspired to learn.

Love the Julia quote. Michael and I cook--- but we both, too, want to learn to really cook!

I so badly want to learn to cook (really cook) as well. I also love to do it but I stick to pretty simple recipes. It's certainly on my list of goals for my life.

These kitchens look like the perfect places to be inspired to make delicious meals!

Never to late to learn. You wouldn't find it hard to spend time in one of those kitchens! I'm in heaven. x

I've decided I should wait until I have an amazing kitchen like one of these photos - then I can get serious about cooking. That's what I tell the hubby anyway!
