I'm the kind of mom who loves to cook, and try out new recipes to feed my family. Nothing makes me happier than supper meals, as they are the one time each day my family is guaranteed to be together. So given an opportunity to review a cookbook via DK Canada's Mother's Day Boutique, I knew I had to jump on it and get a giveaway for you mom's out there as well.

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!

The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
