Written by on Thursday, July 30th, 2009 with 16 comments


From Thursday’s (7/30) NY Post’s Page 6:

“WHAT is the recipe for sex in the affluent Westchester suburbs? Marriage and divorce expert Jill Brooke is hosting a dinner at her Bedford house inspired by Nora Ephron‘s “Julie and Julia,” where guests bring a Julia Child recipe and then dine and dish after seeing the movie, which opens on Aug. 7.

Says Brooke, “Julia Child, like us suburban girls, knew that food is a better aphrodisiac for long-term marriages than Manolos.

Ahh, I think us City Chicks can do better than just Manolos, dollface. Pah-lease!

On Midtown Girl’s Menu: Rioja Braised Short Ribs, Rosemary Gremolata, Mascarpone Cheese Polenta & Sauteed Swiss Chard.

Yes, I can & have really made this. Psh-Shhaw!

Happy Friday dahling’s,

P.S. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO DROLLGIRL – hope your b-day was filled with fun, laughter & good times!

  1. All this time that I have been here, and not one dinner invitation!!!! Did I mention that I love short ribs! LMAO!! Do you deliver?

  2. ohmylord above that food sounds DIVINE!!!

    and thank you for the birthday wishes! you are a PEACH!

    HAVE A FAB WEEKEND!!!! 😉

  3. Oh you go, girl! I'm so impressed you know how to cook all that…

    And LOL to the Manolos comment. Seriously. We can do a lot better than the MBs.

  4. It's Jill Brooke here and you're right…City girls can cook too. I used to be one of them. And I was just "ribbing" a bit and not trying to "short" change your efforts..But I would bet because of our lives here and having less restaurants to choose from as well as the family food focus culture, we may cook more…But whoever cooks knows that it is what makes friends and family want to be around and it's fun.

  5. Yum, your food sounds soooo good!! I really do need to get cooking for dinner lol. Hope you're having a beautiful weekend dear 🙂
