I’m so excited to have been chosen to be part of the JC100 celebrating 100 years of Julia Child.  I grew up watching Julia Child on PBS because my Mom was a huge fan so it’s even more special to be able to be part of this program now that I’m a Mom myself.

Each week I hope to be able to share with you one of Julia Child’s recipes so that you can try it and I will also share my photograph of the finished recipe as well. The first recipe is the Omelette Roulee or Rolled Omelette.  We eat a lot of eggs at our house because we have our own ducks and chickens.  During the spring, we always have more eggs than we know what to do with so this was perfect timing.  I used parmesan cheese and chives on my rolled omelette but you can literally use just about anything in yours that you like.
