She is the coauthor of Discover Dinnertime and a contributor to many other cookbooks and websites. Julia has visited all 50 states and camped with her family in most of them, sleeping in tents, campers, or occasionally just under the stars. Her kitchen gear takes up more space than the tent or other camping supplies because she feels that cooking outside is more fun than hiking.
