Meet Up

I missed the Baltimore Bloggers meet & feed at Holy Frijoles last night, but I did have a mini-meet up with fellow Baltimore Blogger, and Style Magazine shout out, Kitchenography. Although she doesn't know this, because I forgot to tell her, she's partly responsible for my blogging career, such as it is.

Around this time last year, I was looking for a recipe for Cranberry Upside Down Cake, and Julie's blog was one of the links that came up on Google. I read her blog with great interest, figuring out pretty quickly that she was from Baltimore. Further reading narrowed down the neighbourhood, which I knew well. If you click on the photo below, you can find Julie's recipe for the cake, which is fabulous. As you read through her blog, you will notice that she's got a talent for taking lush pictures of food.
Since that time, we've e-mailed back and forth, commented on each other's pages and established a distant rapport. Today, we finally met up, united not by our love of food, but of flea marketing. We were both headed to the monthly Load o'Fun market, where I have gotten some goodies in the past.
Today, Julie was the one who scored, with a first edition of Julia Childs' Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and some other vintage cookbooks, and two beautiful vintage cotton sheets with beautiful detailing on them, for the grand sum of $2.00 each. I only got some old CD's, including one by the late, great Robert Palmer.

We missed the meet up too, we're in NYC.

Lucky you with the vintage books! Better luck than I have!

I had no idea! And that comment about my pictures? So nice!

I feel that I really lucked out on the cookbooks. Thanks for encouraging me to go to the flea market. I'm looking forward to going again when it reopens next year.
