Fans of the Miss Julia series, and even those who have never read a Miss Julia book, will enjoy this a lot. It's a great story and a cookbook all rolled into one. Miss Julia, who says she doesn't like to interfere with anyone else's business, does exactly that. She decides she simply must help Hazel Marie, who has baby twin daughters, and who cannot cook a lick. While getting all her friends to donate recipes, plus demonstrate how to cook a dish at Hazel Marie's, she manages to create tons of havoc, even though she has a heart of gold and truly wants to help. Thrown into the mix are Hazel Marie's husband (what is he really up to?), a self-proclaimed Pastor and Hazel's uncle, who moves himself into the already hectic household and treats everyone to his harsh words and criticisms. I really enjoyed this book and hated to see it end.
