jumping for julia. [bruschetta w. roasted plum tomatoes, ricotta & prosciutto]
I’m officially inspired. My friend adamantly told me the other day that I had to watch the movie “Julie and Julia.” According to her, I am Julie. After watching the movie, I’d have to disagree a little bit, as I have yet to cook such intricate meals…nor have I ever tried to bone a duck (ew). However, I do mirror Julie’s passion for cooking and sharing it with others via my blog.
I find her tenacity for taking on such a daunting task (524 recipes in 365 days) extremely admirable—especially for someone without any cooking background. Her relationship with Julia Child’s cookbook was clearly a full-time commitment.
The most recent recipe my mom and I tried out was bruschetta with rosemary, roasted plum tomatoes, ricotta and prosciutto from Bon Appetit. Just reading the ingredients makes my mouth water. A series of “mmms,” “yums” and “ooos” will be mumbled after biting into one of these decadent crostinis.
Not only do they taste delicious, but they look it!
