Go check out The Secret Ingredient where Diane left a guest post.
I love that her husband cleans up after she has cooked. This compromise sounds pretty good to me and I'll be using in my future relationships/marriage someday. Her mantra was really interesting ("Let the food fit the mood.") It explains a lot about the food Goldy chooses for each event. I'm going to start paying more attention to this when reading the series. I really want to try mint jelly now! I love Julie & Julia movie as well and it always makes me want to get up and cook. I didn't know Diane used to be a teacher! This makes me like her even more.
