For my $.02: 

  • My husband and I’ve began watching The Nice British Baking Present, as a result of we by no means have. Why are the seasons so whackadoodle? However: pretty. (We began with the 2012 season, which Netflix calls “Beginnings.”)
  • When you’re into fantasy PG cartoon reveals, my son and I’ve been watching The Dragon Prince in addition to the reboot of She-Ra (each on Netflix). They each veer a bit into politics however they’re superbly finished and actually attention-grabbing reveals. (We’ve completed Dragon Prince however are solely on season two of She-Ra. The She-Ra reboot is especially refreshing/fascinating from a liberal, feminist perspective. I’m looking for a very good suppose piece on it in the event you haven’t heard concerning the varied controversies…)
  • When it comes to books:
    • Kids’s fantasy: I simply learn Ella Enchanted, by Gail Carson Levine, to my eldest — it might be the final e-book I ever learn to him (at 9) however we each discovered it enchanting. It’s actually pretty. Skip the film. (There was an entire lengthy Twitter thread with suggestions for heartwarming fantasy books that folks remembered and beloved — I’ll discover the hyperlink in a second.) 
    • Chick lit: Wager Me, by Jennifer Crusie was completely pleasant. They’re the yuppiest yuppies who ever yuppied. The heroine is a zaftig actuary and wears fabulous sneakers, and everybody in it’s pleasant. (This was one more advice from the Fated Mates podcast!) This e-book is riiiight on the road between “chick lit” and “modern romance,” which I’d outline by way of the “quantity of sexytime pages.” (Chick lit has much less; modern romance has extra; I really feel just like the HEA (completely happy ever after) is simply assured with the romance though I’d say it’s assumed with chick lit.)
    • Modern romance: Rafe the Buff Male Nanny, by Rebekah Weatherspoon, was completely pleasant; thanks to the reader who advisable. It’s a novella, undoubtedly within the “modern romance” class. The heroine is a Black coronary heart surgeon with twin 6-year-olds and a depressing ex-husband. 
  • When it comes to recipes, we’ve added a bunch of Skinnytaste recipes to our oeuvre these days, together with Quinoa Huevos Rancheros Bowls and Cauliflower Rice Hen Biryani. We’ve additionally been loving this salmon pesto recipe, which I feel I discovered on Pinterest. Because the climate will get colder I can’t wait to make Sausage and Tortellini Soup from Emily’s Bites, in addition to a roast beef crock pot recipe a pal advisable. 
  • OH! And exercises — I simply did a YouTube exercise from EMKFit, which is delightfully dorky, simply as The Minimize promised. I like to recommend. 

Over to you guys — what have you ever discovered pleasant these days?
