REVIEW:
I love this book!
I made two recipes. On the same night. For the same meal. Suppertime.
I hadn't had turkey burgers before, and I love a good salad, so I felt like I couldn't go wrong.
I was right!
Turkey Burger
With Mayo, Tomato & Lettuce only.

Pasta Salad
With pasta, arugula, tomatoes, onion, peas, mayo, salt & pepper.
These dishes went together in perfect harmony. Both were fresh and didn't leave a heavy feeling, though you would think it might.
Best part is, the hubby and son approved. Two of the pickiest eaters on the planet.
Yep, can't wait to experiment some more from this book. It's awesome. It takes you, literally, step-by-step through the recipes. Making them idiot proof. I kid you not.
Just be sure to read recipes through to the end before you start. That way you won't be surprised by anything. This is a great book for anyone, whether you have culinary experience, or not.

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…
