I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for anything OPRAH loves. Her favorites become my must haves. When I saw celebrity mommy, and wife of JERRY SEINFELD, JESSICA SEINFELD on OPRAH last week talking about how to get kids to eat their veggies, my ears immediately perked up. Dinner time has become a battle at our house, with the toddler winning hands down. She practically lives off of grill cheese sandwiches. I’ll also admit that I didn’t even thumb through the book at the shop before I threw my visa down…but there was no need as this cookbook on how to hide veggies in everyday healthy meals is brilliant. Easy to read and follow with fantastic tips from other moms waging meal wars at home. Love the recipes and art work…besides being useful, this book is super cute looking. As a mommy who loves cookbooks (Jamie and Nigella are my kitchen heroes), DECEPTIVELY DELICIOUS gets the style right by using spiral rings to make page turning easier and keeps your book open while you stir and chop…thanks Jessica. Our favorite recipes? Has to be the French Toast and the Brownies (who new that carrots and spinach could be hidden so well?). So stop freaking at the dinner table…hide the veggies and sit back and smile knowing your kids are getting a healthy meal. Get your sanity back with : Deceptively Delicious

Being a mom is many things. Some wonderful, some not so wonderful and thousands of crazy moments in between. Canadian author and journalist REBECCA ECKLER captures all these moments and then some in her book about life with a newborn, or “pint sized dictator ” as she so accurately puts it. Rebecca tells it like it is, warts and all. Anyone who has experienced those first few months of no sleep and, at times endless crying (both yours and the baby’s) will enjoy reading Rebecca’s take on how life changes after baby. I must admit I was skeptical after learning soon into the book that they hired a nanny to help out. However, that just made the situations she described so much more interesting and at times down right funny. We all know how difficult it is to connect and make small talk with a stranger. Just imagine that stranger in your home after you gave birth to a baby. Everyday. First thing in the morning. I couldn’t do it. Rebecca also captures a mom’s need to be with her baby and the need to do that even when out on a much needed date with your significant other (Remember? The reason you got into this in the first place). After reading this hilarious and true to life account of new motherhood, I also felt a little less guilty. Someone else puts their stroller into the sun while walking the baby to get them to close their eyes and go to sleep? I feel better knowing I’m not the only one. Thank you Rebecca.
