Happy Birthday to our cooking idol, food diva and eating legend Julia Child! Julia Child would have been 105 today and probably still cooking and eating. We learned that you can never have enough butter (we’re assuming she never used coconut oil) and that food can be an experience, not just a routine in your day. To celebrate, we have listed our favorite recipes from Julia Child’s reign as Food Queen. From cheese to chocolate, Julia has made cooking more enjoyable and brought us some of the best cheat day meals we could think of. Let’s dig in!
