Meryl, Amy, and Nora

Mattbites had the opportunity to interview the trio of Julie & Julia’s ladies – Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, and Nora Ephron.  To me, this is the blog equivalent of the Behind the Scenes Special Feature that you get on dvd.  And I love, love, love, Special Features.  Just ask The Mistah.  He makes himself scarce when we finish a movie because he knows that I will get lost in hours of Deleted Scenes, The Making Of, or Gag Reels.

Thanks Matt for whetting my appetite for what I imagine could be a full day of Julie & Julia dvd enjoyment.

Bon Appetit Hon!

You know how people grow and develop and change over time?  I’ve discovered that blogs can do the same thing.

Bon Appetit Hon had its beginnings back in 2007 as Exit 51.  I set it up as a means to keep in contact with my husband while he was overseas.  But as time passed, more and more of Exit 51 became about food.  What I was making, what I was thinking of making, what worked, and what failed.  Not to mention all the food diversions that the Internet threw my way.

So in 2009, just as Exit 51 was about to enter the Terrible Two’s, I decided it was time to make a change.  Call it growing pains, or an identity crisis, or whatever you like.  But to me, the name Exit 51 just didn’t convey the idea that it’s about the food.  And Bon Appetit Hon was born.

Exit 51 still lives on here for now.   And there will be links back to it since part of moving forward is always remembering where you’ve been.  I hope you’ll follow along and see where this journey takes us.

Welcome to my kitchen in Smalltimore.  Pull up a chair, make yourself at home, and Bon Appetit Hon.
