  2. I loved 'Like Water for Chocolate'! I read the book and watched the movie. Both were great! Now, that you have reminded me, I'm going to have to find and reread the book. :)

  9. Another fun list- and I've never heard of some of them, like Kings of Pastry, but I'm going to check it out for sure. The whole time I scrolled down I was thinking 'Julie and Julia, Julie and Julia, it's gotta be here' and of course, it was! Meryl Streep is such a delight.

    1. Hi Christy~I adore Meryl Streep...she was fabulous in this role. But then, she usually is. Kings of Pastry is a fun documentary I saw on Netflix. There's one about a sushi chef I may check out next. Thanks for your visit!
