Julia's Child Book Review/Giveaway

A delectable comedy for every woman who's ever wondered if buying that six-dollar box of organic crackers makes her a hero or a sucker

Julia Bailey is a mompreneur with too many principles and too little time. Her fledgling company, Julia’s Child, makes organic toddler meals with names like Gentle Lentil and Give Peas a Chance. But before she realizes her dream of seeing them on the shelves of Whole Foods, she will have to make peace between her professional aspirations and her toughest food critics: the two little boys waiting at home. Is it possible to save the world while turning a profit?

JULIA’S CHILD is a warmhearted, laugh-out-loud story about motherhood’s choices: organic vs. local, paper vs. plastic, staying at home vs. risking it all.

  I love to read, the moments when I can find to do so seem to be fewer and further between because life just gets so busy. So I was excited when I was asked to review the book Julia's Child by Sarah Pinneo

 because that would give me a reason to force myself to just sit and read on occasion.  This book was really enjoyable, being that mom that " wonders if buying that six-dollar box of organic crackers makes her a hero or a sucker"  I got a great laugh out of this book and felt reassured about the choices I make food wise for my family (and realized I can still do some things better).
   To give you a short briefing of the book ( I don't want to tell you too much incase you decide to read it for yourself), it is about a mom who decides to risk it all to start an organic kids food company. Her # one selling item is a "muffin" that she calls muffets, and I am not kidding you I had a dream one night that I stumbled upon muffets at my local store and was thrilled, only to wake and find it wasn't real. :-/ There are recipes included in the book, I have not had the chance to try them yet but I definitely plan to!
  If you are someone who loves to read, and is going the organic route you should definitely take the time to read this book! I think you will love it! You can purchase Julia's Child at
  and one of you will win a copy of your own just by filling out the form below! Good Luck! I will leave this open until Tuesday Feb 28th!
