Glamour Magazine's September issue is on newsstands today and has a fun food piece with the women of Julie & Julia. First, I'm thrilled to report that most of the recipes featured in the article appear to be gluten free. For example, Ms. Streep's tarragon chicken salad and mushroom risotto, and Amy Adams'guacamole, are naturally gluten free. (Just be sure to use GF mayonnaise, sour cream and chicken stock.) There's also writer-director Nora Ephron's 10-minute spaghetti dinner recipe in which spaghetti and breadcrumbs sans gluten may be substituted. Love the 10-minute part.
Now for the similarity between Meryl and me. She writes:
"I am a terrible cook. I can cook, but I fear that, as with video gaming or hard-core rap, I have no natural affinity...I’m in direct line with my mother on this one: She had a needlepoint pillow that read, I’m making my favorite thing for dinner: reservations."
