We all have the memories of what home meant to us as children.  I lucked upon Home: A Memoir of my Early Years by Julie Andrews in the paperback section of Goodwill.  I am about halfway through the book that highlights Julie Andrews childhood before she experienced mega stardom.  Her home was a far cry from Mary Poppins.  She tells of the despair and wonder that rippled through her youth.  I look forward to reading more.

Do you ever have a total Julie & Julia moment when you see a recipe and feel as if you made it life could be "simply divine"?

Homemade Coconut Marshallows gave me just that feeling

This may be my next recipe to try. Just the sight of these adds to the "joy of cooking"!
