    Hi Julie,
    Wonderful website. I read an insert on the page and would like to send you an email offline due to the fact that it touched me.
    Please let me know if it’s possible

    Hi, I really like the way you tell a story, people sometimes miss the story of how things are and what makes them special. they go straight to recipe and the person reading this recipe misses the essence of the dish

    Awesome website! Very fresh, love the green background!! You have an eye for details and are a great narrator. I am thinking you can also step into writing short stories or novel perhaps. Btw, I look forward to meeting you more often for lunch/dinner ;-).

    Amazing site, and more so because I never knew about this hobby of yours. Great site, mouth-watering dishes, excellent photos and tips spiced with delicate humour. Love it!!

    hey mala,

    thank you. that was truly motivating.

    no doubt sophie, one of my main inspirations for cooking, will treat you with perfect and even better recipes until you gather up some courage…but trust me, cooking like swimming though looks intimidating initially is innate to all. just take the first plunge.

    I am so Proud of you. This is amazing. I recently saw the movie Julie and Julia, you are so much like the Julie there.

    I watch Cookery Programs, read recipes for leisure but have never ever been brave enough to try any of them, recipes I mean, not the final output.

    I will ask Sopihe to try all of it and master them to perfection and invite me to her place for the meal
