REVIEW:
I wanted this book because I married Italian and we eat a lot of Mediterranean foods already. I just wanted better knowledge and more recipes to deal with. When I browsed through, the hubby chose this Italian bread salad for me to make.
Panzanetta
This 'bread salad' is called Panzanetta. It's generally made with leftover ciabatta bread, plum tomatoes, red onion, cucumber, and some herbs, oil, vinegar and spices. I wasn't sure I would like it, but it was surprisingly delicious! For my first time having it, I was surprised at the great flavor and texture. The bread didn't get soggy, it just absorbed all the flavors. I can't wait to make it again and again, plus try much more out as well.
I also loved being able to use herbs from my indoor garden. That was a nice touch.
I definitely recommend this book and the series of cookbooks it fits with. I think I have them all!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
