Deadly Bridge Collapse | Complete Coverage | Photo Gallery

MIAMI (CBSMIAMI) – Journalist, novelist, playwright, screenwriter, director, producer, chef…Nora Ephron was all of those and more.

She died yesterday in New York after a long battle with leukemia but her words live on.

Ephron was nominated for an Oscar for “Silkwood,” brought her love of food to life in “Julie and Julia” and revived romantic comedies with “Sleepless in Seattle,” “You’ve Got Mail” and her greatest success, “When Harry Met Sally,” which included one of the funniest scenes in movie history.

In her best-selling autobiographical novel, “Heartburn,” she described the breakup of her marriage to Watergate’s Carl Bernstein.  Her career certainly surpassed his since then.

Ephron included recipes in “Heartburn.”  When reading the book, I realized that even I, a terrible cook, could make her key lime pie.  I did and took one to a woman I’d just started seeing.

She later said it was the clincher for her.  We got married a year later.

For that and all the laughs, thank you Nora Ephron.
