There are a few new DVDs for kids that are just releasing or releasing soon that I wanted to let you know about. Some of these star our favorite current characters and would be well-received by any of the kiddos in your life, I’m sure!

My Little Pony – Friendship is Magic

I participated in the Train Bulletproof Picasso album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own.

Anytime I’m provided with the opportunity to review an album, I almost always accept it. It’s hard to say no to great tunes, especially when it’s a group like Train.

Train is a three-time Grammy winning band out of San Francisco and even if you think you haven’t heard of them, it’s likely that a few of their lyrics are floating around in your head. “Hey, Soul Sister”, “Drops of Jupiter”, and “Calling All Angels” are a few of the songs they’re most known for (and happen to be a few of my own personal favorites).

We’ve all had one.  One of those days where nothing goes our way and all we really want to do is grab a spoon and pint of ice cream and tell the world to take a number.

Alexander has had one of those days.  It starts out with gum in his hair, and just gets worse from there.  And when he attempts to get a little sympathy from his family, he doesn’t find anyone to commiserate with him.  Soon, though, each member of Alexander’s family finds themselves struggling with their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Crustless Quiche Recipe

In the movie, Alexander’s father Ben serves up a crustless quiche recipe for his family.  I think you’ll find this recipe so easy that even if you’re having a horrible day and have little time (or patience) to put dinner on the table, that you’ll be able to pull it off without much trouble.
