    Friday Show and Tell

    How is it already FRIDAY?!

    The other day Cate handed me my phone and said, “Look at this video Anna just made, Mom.” To set the stage, our girls loooooove Jimmy Fallon’s lip sync battles. It all began with John Krasinski, then Joseph Gordon Levitt and Stephen Merchant seriously rocked it, and Paul Rudd was the latest lip syncer to hit the scene. Well, Anna is obsessed with Frozen (surprise!) and she did her own lip sync to “Let It Go.” This was all completely on her own. I love how she has to whisper the whole thing and you can tell she’s really feeling it at 3:26. P.S. Don’t mention it to her in person, she gets really bashful. My sweet introverted performer who doesn’t know what to do with herself!

    This week’s Babbles!

    And fun food on Cosmo!

    As always, share whatever you like with us! That’s what show and tell is all about!

    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!
