I recently saw the movie Julie & Julia with Meryl Streep and loved it. It made me want to get back in the kitchen and start cooking again. In the early 1990s, I would have a dinner party every week. The only problem was that when I would cut onions, I had to wear a snorkel to fend off the fumes. One evening I was called to the table by my guests while I was still wearing my snorkel. As a gag, I decided to leave it on for the rest of the dinner. Prosit!
