what our kids are reading now

  • The adventures of Samuarai Jack has been great fun to read. The series is about, an evil shape-shifter named Aku from the distant past that has brought destruction upon the land. Jack is a heroic warrior in a quest to return to the past and undo the evil wrought by Aku. ~ d

  • Dillon has been loving “The Monster Show” for weeks. It is a cute “tell all” about monsters... did you know that monsters feel silly only wearing underpants? Little D (3) now reads it back to me and it is the cutest thing ever. ~d

  • This is a great little series of books about trucks, fire engines, digger and other machines. Dillon reads these over and over again. The have cute illustrations, bright colors and they are about machines — what little boy wouldn't like! ~d


  • Milkshakes and Margaritas is a daily website dedicated to all things kid and parent related, run by San Francisco-based moms, Tanya Schevitz & Danielle Gutherie.

sounds extra yummy! =D


Your interview was great. Thanks!


I am always looking for quick easy meals for my family. Like the recipes will also work for smaller groups when the kids absolutely insist on frozen pizza that night.


I can't wait to try the chicken for my son w/food allergies. I haven't made a sauce without butter before!

I share some similarities with both Tara and her kids... Like Tara I am a working cook who is constantly trying to find simple, streamlined and delicious recipes. Like her kids, I too harbor a deep-seated love for boxed Mac n' cheese.


I would love this book! I am always looking for simple meals.. what mom doesn't! With my third coming soon, I could sure use it.

Hope I win!
