  • The children’s film industry is huge. In fact, of the 20 top-grossing films of 2012, six were animated, earning a total of around $2 billion.

    On top of theater earnings, there are many children’s films that go straight to rental/DVD. But among those rentals, there are some duds. If you are not careful you might have to sit through a film called “The Talking Cat.”

  • I’m not sure why it has taken me so long to discover chocolate-hazelnut spread. I didn’t really think of trying it until last year.

    To my great joy, it is delicious, especially when used in a recipe to make a tasty treat.

    Last year I found a delicious truffle to make with the ingredient and last week I ran across a recipe for Nutella Cheesecake.

    Picture a mind officially blown.
