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.

    Tanya is the mother of 2 boys, and a writer for several publications, including the San Francisco Chronicle. Danielle also has 2 boys and is a partner and designer in the SF based design studio — the Vega Project.

    Every week we will be sharing things we've learned, giving tips on parenting and life, recommending products we love, interviews with successful moms, and more.

    We’re always interested in new ideas, so let us know what you think — and please come back for more.

great interview, great words about family and work-life balance (or the illusion of it!). my kids also get super duper excited when I get annie's mac and cheese...


With a 2 year old and an 8wk old I need all the assistance I can get! We're looking to get a learning tower so out tot can help out more in the kitchen & hopefully eat more than just mac & cheese and pizza!


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


I am always looking for something new (and healthy!) to prepare for my family! They are a pretty picky bunch, but I am willing to try anything!

I wish there were cookbooks like this when my daughter was young! Fabulous idea for working moms!

Nancy Ganner

Great interview - I'm looking forward to getting her book. I read her column in the Chron and love the fresh and easy ideas. I'm especially always looking for fast & healthy options for school lunches for my 9 year old. Way to go, Tara!


I am definitely busy with a 2-3 hour commute everyday, a 9 hour work day and 2 kids, I am constantly moving. This book sounds GREAT!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who defaults to bagels for lunch.
Looks like an interesting book, and so necessary.
