Friday Show and Tell!

Happy Friday, everyone! I can’t tell you how happy I am the week is over. Not that it was a bad week, I’m just ready for the weekend!

Time to show and tell a few things with you all. As always, please share your own stuff in the comments! Whether it’s links to things you discovered or just a little tidbit from your own life, anything goes!

new column: 3 kids, a mom and a kitchen by @janemaynard

I started a new column over on Babble called 3 Kids, a Mom and a Kitchen. The kids and I are going to try out different recipes and then report back on how we like them, complete with a ranking system involving smiley and frowny faces! My first post went up this week (we made lemon pound cake) and it was a lot of fun. I’m excited to do more of these posts and my kids are loving the idea of helping me write a column!

Here on This Week for Dinner I’m finally getting my recipes all ship shape (it’s about time, right?). Pretty soon individual recipes will have a much better format, with the ability to rank and save them. I also finally created a master Recipe Index page (it’s at the very top of the site). It’s not totally updated yet, but we’re getting there. I also now have a mobile version of the site, so it will be much easier to navigate This Week for Dinner on your phone or tablet and you’ll be able to get to the recipe index lickity split.

Here are a few of my “babbles” from the week:

My posts on are in full swing, too. I haven’t done show and tell in a couple weeks, so I won’t barrage you with a bunch of links, but there are some fun posts on there. Click here and scroll down to check them out – it’s easy to see which posts are mine. (P.S. It’s still cracking me up that I’m writing for Cosmo. I think the greatest challenge yet was coming up with punchy blurbs about kale recipes because, you know, kale is super sexy.)

Happy Friday! Please share your own stuff!


  1. Wow, you have been a busy mamma. Yesterday I did a lasagna vlog. It was pretty fun making the vlog (something I don’t normally do). And the lasagna turned out to be delish and perfect for a cold night.

      stephanie, you are so cute and funny! and bravo to you for doing video, I’m terrified of it for many, many reasons 😉

  2. Your kids are so stinkin’ cute. I’m curious if they ever DON’T like something you’ve made…I doubt it 🙂

    This week went by quick…Stinker started t-ball, Junior had 2 more appointments, and we spent one day at Disneyland, so there wasn’t much time to spare!

    I posted my top 40 lunch ideas…I’m trying to eat lunch at home more in 2014. Not doing so well thus far, but working on it! Here’s the post:

      I need lunch ideas desperately – can’t wait to check out your list!

      also, when owen took a bite of the lemon pound cake he screamed “yucky” and cried for 5 minutes, so there ya go! 😉
