So this is what happens when you blog

Seriously, Julie, my cousin, couldn't have dreamed in her wildest dreams that this would happen to her.

Back in 2002 Julie began to blog. She set out in her blog titled The Julie / Julia Project to write about her experience cooking every recipe in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Who knew people would read the blog?

In 365 days she was going to cook 536 recipes and write about it. Who knew she'd publish a book about it now titled Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen.

After a successful book tour, who knew she'd watch herself portrayed on the streets of New York as they filmed about it in a film titled Julie & Julia?

But all of that has happened to Julie.

In October 2007 they named Amy Adams to portray Julie and Meryl Streep was cast to play Julia Child and Nora Ephron directing.

And just how does Julie feel about all of this especially when Amy Adams isn't allowed to meet my dear cousin? Well catch her latest blog posts on What Could Happen.

Good for you Julie. I'm so terribly proud of your accomplishments!
