The Zodiac Legacy – New Stan Lee MG Book



I think Stan Lee fans might be interested in learning about a new book he has written.

Comic book and Super Hero fans know who Stan Lee is. He needs no introduction.

The new book is entitled The Zodiac Legacy. I have a copy of the book. I haven’t started to read it yet. I am hoping my son will want to read it for me and act as my co-reviewer.

This is book one in the series.

The Zodiac Legacy is published by Disney Press.


Twelve magical superpowers, One sinister conspiracy, One unlikely hero.

Stan Lee presents a brand new, magical, super-powered adventure!

When twelve magical superpowers are unleashed on the world, a Chinese-America teenager named Steven will be thrown into the middle of an epic global chase. He’ll have to master strange powers, outrun super-powered mercenaries, and unlock the mysterious powers of the Zodiac.


Stan Lee is known to millions as the man whose Super Heroes propelled Marvel to its preeminent position in the comic book industry. His co-creations include Spider-Man, The Avengers, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, The Fantastic Four, as well as hundreds of others. He introduced Spider-Man as a syndicated newspaper strip that became the most successful of all syndicated adventure strips and has appeared in more than 500 newspapers worldwide. Stan currently remains Chairman Emeritus of Marvel, as well as a member of the Editorial Board of Marvel Comics. He is also the Chairman & Chief Creative officer of POW! Entertainment, a multimedia entertainment company based in Beverly Hills, CA.

Stuart Moore has been a writer, a book editor, and an award-winning comics editor. His recent writing includes Civil War, the first in a new line of prose novels from Marvel Comics, The Art of Iron Man 3 (Marvel, with Marie Javins); and THE 99, a multicultural super hero comic from Teshkeel.

Andie Tong has worked on titles for various franchises, including Tron: Betrayal, Spectacular Spider-Man UK, The Batman Strikes, Smallville, Wheel of Time, TMNT, Masters of the Universe, and Starship Troopers, working for companies such as Disney, Marvel, DC Comics, Panini, Dark Horse, and Dynamite Entertainment, as well as commercial illustrations for numerous advertising agencies including Nike, Universal, CBS, Mattel, and Habsro. When he gets the chance, Andie concept designs for various companies, and also juggles illustration duties on a range of children’s picture storybooks for Harper Collins. Malaysian born, Andie migrated to Australia at a young age, and then moved to London in 2005. In 2012, he journeyed back to Asia and currently resides in Singapore with this wife and daughter.

It sound very interesting. No doubt this will be a popular book among Stan Lee fans. Perhaps he’ll gather new fans after reading this book.

Check out what is new from Kohl’s Cares



If you read my blog on a regular basis you might recall how much I adore the wonderful products that are offered as part of the Kohl’s Cares program.

Often Kohl’s Cares offers consumers fun and popular books along with beautifully made plush animals that go along with the book (each sold separately). They also offer cute toys and things for grown ups too.

In the past have purchased (or have been given) book from Dr. Suess and Disney. Some I have kept for my own collection, others I have donated to the classroom where I work. The same applies to the plush animals. Some I have kept and others I have donated to our classroom.

Here are some examples.







The “Put Me In The Zoo” and “RIO 2″ plush and book are mine that I keep on my bookshelf along with a Dr. Suess book and plush from Kohl’s Cares and another plush/book set.

Children love the snugly plush animals and the books are very popular with children because they are titles (or characters) that they are familiar with.

Kohl’s Cares has new products available. This time they are books and plush based on Disney * Pixar films such as Up, Cars and Toy Story.

Kohl’s Cares sent me a wonderful surprise recently. It contained a Cars book and plush (Lightening McQueen) and a Toy Story book and plus (Rex). If you follow me on Instagram (SheScribes) you probably saw the pictures of them that I uploaded.



Kohl’s Cares also has products for “grown ups” too (personally I enjoy the children’s books and plush the best), as well as toys such as puzzles and activity books. I have some awesome cookbooks I’ve purchased from Kohl’s Cares.

Kohl’s Cares also sent me a activity book with a dry erase marker based on characters/movies from Disney * Pixar films. I donated it to our classroom, however I took the dry erase marker. We’ll hold on to that for the older kids (little ones and dry erase markers don’t got well together – ha ha).


The great thing about Kohl’s Cares products is that each one is only $5.00. Where else can you get a quality made plush for only $5.00? Even the books cost more than $5.00 in most books stores. For $10.00 you could give a child a lovely gifts of a beautiful book and an adorable plush.

If your child attends a lot of birthday parties it would be a great idea to stock up on Kohl’s Cares items. They are only $5.00 each and they look like you spent a lot more. Plus you can give book/plush sets ($10 in total) and it would make for a beautiful gift for a child. Not only do they get a new plush friend they also get a book to read, and as you know, encouraging a child to read is very important.

I just purchase the book “UP” and the plush Dug for my personal collection.


Some sets I love to keep for my family. Others I like to donate to our classroom.

In addition to the wonderful products Kohl’s Cares offers, proceeds from the sales of these products goes towards children’s charities. Kohl’s Cares donates 100% of the net profit to Kohl’s Cares charities that support kid’s health and education programs nationwide. Since 2000 Kohl’s Cares has raised and impressive $257 million dollars. Talk about a “win-win” situation. You get wonderful products and the proceeds goes towards children’s charities.

You can find Kohl’s Cares products around the check out aisles in Kohl’s stores, as well as online (do a search for Kohl’s Cares). Kohl’s Cares products sell out quickly, so if there is something you have your eye on don’t wait too long. In addition Kohl’s Cares offers new products several times a year.

For more information or to find a Kohl’s location near you visit www.Kohls.com. You can also find Kohl’s on the various social media sites (all the links are found on the bottom of their website).

Do you have any Kohl’s Cares products? I know they have been around for a while. I’ve seen some wonderful products I wish I had known about because I would have purchased them.

Cathy Mitchell’s Quick & Easy Dump Cakes



Have you ever heard of a “Dump Cake” before? Until recently I have never heard of that term before.

A Dump Cake is a cake (or dessert) that you make by simply dumping ingredients in a pan and popping it in the oven. There is no measuring or weighing involved and barely any mixing.

That’s my kind of baking!

I’m not much of a great baker (I’m a good cook). Baking has never been a strong point of mine. I also don’t have the time to spend hours in the kitchen baking.

I was recently sent a copy of the book Cathy Mitchell’s Quick & Easy Dump Cakes.

There are a lot of delicious sounding recipes in the book. Unfortunately most of them don’t have pictures along with the recipes. I am a very visual person. I tend to make recipes (baking or cooking) where I can see what the final result should look like. I don’t like to “guess” what something is supposed to look like. I would rather see the end result so I can make sure my end result looks similar.

I have plenty of cookbooks that don’t have photos with the recipes so I am used to it.

There are a lot of recipes in this book – over 25o of them.

I haven’t had the opportunity to try any of the recipes yet, but I do have several that are “dog earred” so I can try them out after the holidays.

Here are two sample recipes from the book (shared with permission).

Mixed Berry

Mixed Berry Cake

2 packages (12 ounces) frozen mixed berries, thawed and drained

1 can (12ounces) Lemon-lime soda

1 package (about 15 ounces) white cake mix

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ cup cinnamon chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray 13X9-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Spread mixed berries in prepared pan. Top with cake mix, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Slowly pour soda over top, covering cake mix as much as possible. Sprinkle with cinnamon chips.
  3. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Cool at least 15 minutes before serving.

Makes 12 to 16 servings

Pumpkin Pecan Dump Cake

Pumpkin Pecan Cake-

  • 1 can solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 package yellow mix
  • ¾ cup butter, cut into thin slices
  • ½ cup pecan halves
  1.  Preheat oven to 350. Spray 13X9-inch baking pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, brown sugar, eggs, pumpkin pie spice and salt in medium bowl; stir until well blended. Pour into prepared pan, top with cake mix, spread evenly. Top with butter in single layer, covering cake mix as much as possible. Sprinkle with pecans.
  3. Bake about 1 hour or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

Makes 12-16 servings

As you can see, there IS mixing and measuring involved. In fact I was rather shocked by that. I assumed the entire book was Dump Cake recipes. I went page by page and only found a few true Dump Cake recipes. Most recipes are regular recipes where you need to mix and measure.

The recipes in the book do sound delicious, and most of the ones I have dog earred are regular recipes (I do have two true Dump Cake recipes I want to try, especially the skillet S’mores. That looks good, quick and easy.

Even though I have watched a few videos staring Cathy Mitchell, the lady behind the Quick & Easy Dump Cake Cookbook. The dump recipes she made she didn’t mix the ingredients. Honestly I think I would mix them – at least a little bit. I would be worried that unmixed cake mix will come out dry and crumbly. I would want to make 100% certain that the dry ingredients were wet. I think I’ll mix the cake mix and water/soda (yes, soda!) in a bowl THEN pour it on top of the other ingredients just to be on the safe side.

I’m a bit disappointed that the entire book was not Dump Cake recipes as the cover would lead you to believe, but the recipes inside do sound delicious and seem pretty quick and easy to make.

If you would like to learn more about Cathy Mitchell’s Quick & Easy Dump Cakes visit www.BuyDumpCakes.com.

Have you ever made a Dump Cake before? If so, what kind of cake did you make and how did it turn out?

Have you tried any of Cathy Mitchell’s recipes? How did it turnout?

Feel free to share your thoughts. I always love to hear from readers. :-)

New York Times Best Selling Author David Baldacci Giveaway (ends 12/14/14)



My husband and I have not started Christmas shopping yet for our kids. Usually we’re done by the end of October! Due to several unexpected car repairs and other expenses we simply haven’t had the funds to do any Christmas shopping. HOPEFULLY SOON!

We’ve had our kids make up a “wish list”. Our son never really wants anything – literally! Even as a little boy he never really wanted anything. This year he wants a movie camera. The two he showed me were $900 and $1,500. Yikes! No way! I hope he has other ideas.

Our daughter on the other hand has a list a mile long. She normally does.

One of the items on her “wish list” are books. That’s great. I love that she wants books to read, but she’s not telling me what title or what author! She needs to narrow that down because there are millions of books available and I want to make sure I get ones she’ll actually read.

I received to review two books from New York Times Best Selling Author David Baldacci to review – The Escape and The Finisher. Since my daughter was asking for books for Christmas, and I’d like to encourage my son to read more books, I gave them each a book. I gave my daughter The Finisher and my son The Escape.

Books are not only great gifts they are also good to have on hand for cold, wintery days where going outside is not an option. Our daughter especially can’t be out in the cold. She has a condition called Raynaud’s Disease where the cold causes her blood vessels to spasm. Her hands LITERALLY turn pure white – actual white – when she’s cold. She complains of being cold even in 60 degree temperatures. Needless to say when it’s cold outside our daughter stays indoors. That is why book are great because at least she’ll have something to do and she won’t be bored.

As of this writing neigher of my kids have finished the books yet, but I know my daughter is more than half way through so she must like the book. I asked her what her thoughts are and she said it’s “good”. She asked if there were more books in the series.

My son has read several pages in the book. Maybe what could translate into a chapter or two. He’s not much of a reader. When I asked him his thoughts he just shrugged his shoulders and said “It’s alright”.

My daughter said she’d read The Escape when she’s done with The Finisher, even if my son it’s done reading it yet.

Here is some information about both David Baldacci, as well as information about the author himself.


About The Escape (Book 3: John Puller series) 

A prison unlike any other. Military discipline rules. Its security systems are unmatched. None of its prisoners dream of escaping. They know it’s impossible . . . until now.

John Puller’s older brother, Robert, was convicted of treason. His inexplicable escape from the country’s most-secure prison makes him the most wanted criminal in the country. Some in the government believe that John Puller represents their best chance of capturing Robert alive, and so Puller is ordered to bring in his brother to face justice.

But Puller quickly discovers that his brother is pursued by others who don’t want him to survive. At the same time, Puller is pushed into an uneasy, fraught partnership with Veronica Knox, an agent who may have an agenda of her own.

They dig more deeply into the case together, and Puller finds that not only are Knox’s allegiances unclear, but there are troubling details about his brother’s conviction. It becomes clear that someone out there doesn’t want the truth to ever come to light. As the nationwide manhunt for Robert grows more urgent, Puller’s masterful skills as an investigator and strengths as a fighter may not be enough to save his brother—or himself.


About The Finisher (Ages 10+)

Vega Jane was always told no one could leave the town of Wormwood. She was told there was nothing outside but a forest filled with danger and death. And she always believed it – until the night she saw Quentin Herms run away.

Vega knows Quentin dididn’tust leave, he was chased. And he left behind a trail of clues that point to a dark conspiracy at the heart of Wormwood. To follow the clues will attract the attention of influential people willing to kill to keep their secrets. To stay safe, Vega just needs to keep her head down and her mouth shut. There’s only one problem – Vega Jane is not the kind of girl who walks away from a fight.

Master storyteller David Baldacci introduces an unforgettable heroine who must think fast, hit hard, and defy all odds to uncover the truth.

Happy 50th Anniversary Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer! (Giveaway ends 12/6/14)



Did you know that this year marks the 50th Anniversary of the longest running and highest rated holiday special of all time? That’s right! Rudolph, the most beloved red-nosed reindeer, is celebrating his 50th Anniversary this year.

For me and my family, it’s not really the Christmas season without watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

I’ve been enjoying this beloved holiday classic since I was a very little girl. I honestly can’t remember the first time I saw it. All I know is that as soon as it aired on television the holiday season “officially” begun (in my eyes that is).

My dad wasn’t a big fan of the show. He didn’t really like any holiday programming. I think a lot of that had to do with him being raised in an orphanage when he was a little boy. His Christmas was nothing like the Christmases I experienced growing up. I have nothing but happy memories where as I’m sure my dad didn’t have any happy memories. So watching holiday shows like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer didn’t see to phase him much. In fact he grumbled when my mom would tell him to let me watch Rudolph. She knew how much I loved it. The moment it was over he would change the channel.

Even though my dad didn’t enjoy the show, it still brings back happy memories from when I was a child. I would love to sit there and watch it while enjoying a candy cane. Afterwards mom would make me some hot chocolate.

I’m lucky that I married someone who also loves Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer as much as I do. Whenever it’s on TV we have to watch it. We even have it on Blu-ray and DVD so we can watch it a few times during the holiday season (and usually do). We even have A LOT of decorations around our home based on the holiday special including stuffed animals, ornaments, snow globes and figurines.


One of our Rudolph plush toys (we have a few) and a Hermie and Cornelius animated toy.


Some of our Rudolph and friends plush figures.

My husband has a plush Bumble that he loves. It sits on our bed. Once I caught him fast asleep with Bumble in his arms. LOL!


You’d think he’d be embarrassed by this photo – but he’s not. My husband is just a big kid at heart. :-)

This year, in celebration of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer‘s 50th Anniversary many places are having special Rudolph related tie-ins and promotions. For example, the U.S. postal service has issued special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer stamps this year (I need to get some!). There is a collector’s edition DVD available, them park and in-mall entertainment, a stage musical and even a special social media campaign called #ShineBright that celebrates uniqueness in association with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.

Rudolph Stamps

We also have special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer books, compliments of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group. The books are from Square Fish which is an imprint of the Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group. They released six new Rudolph themed books including the first graphic novel that stars Rudolph and all his friends, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Island of Misfit Toys by Brendan Deneen.

In addition to this book there is also a beautiful copy of the classic storybook and a My Reader edition specifically made for young readers.

I love the slide-and-find book. I have never seen one done this way before. I have seen pop-up books (there is also a new Rudolph pop-up book). Children can slide these little built in “doors” back and forth to reveal what is behind it. It’s really cute.

Here is some more information about the new Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer books.


Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Classic Story – Deluxe 50th Anniversary Edition for ages 4-8

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: Slide and Find – Board Book for ages 2-4

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: Life-the-Flap – Board Book for ages 2-4

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: Rudolph Saves the Day -Paperback picture book for ages 3-7

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: My Reader – Level 2 Paperback Reader for ages 5-7

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Island of Misfit Toys – Middle-Grade Graphic Novel for ages 7-12

I LOVE the classic book. That is a keeper. I hope to share that book with my grandchildren, and God willing, grandchildren some day. I know some special little children who I am going to give the other books to.

These would make GREAT holiday gifts. The classic book would also make a great gift for an adult who loves the show. It’s a “keepsake” type of book.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – in theaters November 21, 2014

*I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Lions Gate. I received a book, products, and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Mockingjay Part 1 Poster

Several years ago my daughter was begging me for a series of books from an author Suzanne Collins. I knew nothing of the books or the author so I was reluctant to purchase books I knew nothing about (just in case they were not age appropriate). After learning that all her friends were reading a book called The Hunger Games I figured it was OK for her to read the book so I picked her up a copy.

My daughter was so into the book that she read it in a matter of a couple of days and begged me to get her the second one in the series.

About the same time we learned that the book was coming to theaters are a feature film by the same name, The Hunger Games. My daughter was so excited. The day the movie came out she went to see it with her friends.

Admittedly I had no interest in the book or the film.

One day I saw the DVD in the store and bought it as a gift for our daughter. She watched it several times back to back. I knew there had to be something about the movie to make my daughter such a huge fan. So one day when everyone was at work and school I popped the movie into the DVD to watch it. I was hooked! I didn’t think it would have been that good. I even picked up my daughter’s copy of the book and read that too (I wish I had read the book first). Before I knew it I was also excited when we learned that the next book in the series was also coming out as a feature film. As soon as that film was available on DVD I purchased it as well because I couldn’t wait to see what happened to Katniss and her friends.

We do have the second book in the trilogy but I haven’t read it yet (my daughter did).

On November 21, 2014 the first part of the last book in the trilogy, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part I, comes to theaters.

Thanks to Mom Central I received a copy of the book, Mockingjay, as well as a few more copies to give out to friends.

Mockingjay Part 2

I started to read the book the same day it arrived. I couldn’t wait to dive into it.

I invited over a couple of friends and a neighbor for an afternoon of The Hunger Games. I picked up some “grown up” snacks (crackers, fancy cheeses, cheese spread), fruits and tea biscuits, coffee, tea and wine.

We watched both films, The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire back to back. Thank goodness The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is on Netflix because I couldn’t track down our copy. I wanted to make sure that we saw BOTH films in sequence.

After we watched both films (and chatted a lot about the movies and “mom stuff”) I surprised each of them with a copy of the book Mockingjay, which is the third and final book in the series. They were psyched! No one knew what was going to happen next to Katniss or what happened to Peeta. Personally that is one thing I was super curious about – Peeta.

A few of the ladies started to flip through the book but I asked that they wait to read it so we can all start on the book together (although I cheated – I did start to read it).

I showed the trailer to my guests (via my computer) to get them excited about the book an the upcoming movie. Here is the trailer for your enjoyment.


We were going to get together again and discuss the book and share our thoughts this weekend, but I was invited at the last minute to go to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and couldn’t set something up. I feel bad about that too.

The movie opens on the 21st and we had planned to go and see it together (a few of us – not everyone could make it). Instead of seeing the film opening weekend (which would be a nightmare – the theater will be packed) we are going to plan a little impromptu get together next Saturday morning (I have plans in the afternoon) to discuss the book (we all finished reading it as far as I know). Hopefully we can meet up at the mall and go see the film the following weekend.

I’m done reading the book. I was going to pace myself a little better but I had to see how it ended. I was surprised at the ending – sort of. I THINK I kind of felt it would end the way it did, but I wasn’t 100% sure.

Some might this the book and movies series are for teens and ‘tweens. They are not. Plenty of grown ups enjoy them just as much as the younger crowd does.

I really like Katniss. I like how she is fiercely loyal and protecting of her family and friends and how she stands up for others.

A great book and a glass of wine with friends.

A great book and a glass of wine with friends.

She’s a hero, and she’s a strong women (emotionally and physically) but she doesn’t apply that label to herself. She doesn’t see herself as a hero. She’s just Katniss. She’s the same humble, down to Earth girl she’s always been. I like that quality about her. She didn’t let the games or all the corruption get the best of her.

This is all evident the third book in the series which is probably the most action packed out of all of them. I also like that we see more of Gale in this book then we have in the past.

I also like the “sci-fi” aspect to the series. I find it fascinating, although the idea of having the different districts doesn’t sound too appealing.

If you would like to learn more about the film, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I please visit the official website. Part II should be released this time next year.

Have you read all three books in the series? Have you seen both films? Are you looking forward to seeing The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I? Feel free to share your thoughts.
