Friday Playgroup: June 22, 2007

Castle Cake: Embarrassing but true. I want one of these for my next birthday! (Scribbit)

Cooking with Hyacinth: Amazing cooking blog with detailed step-by-step photos and original recipes. In one of the photos, she sports a really cute apron that you can find at TheKitchenMadonna. (The Pioneer Woman Cooks)

What? Huh? You Must Be Kidding? I think it’s utterly ridiculous that Kellogg’s was pressured into retiring their licensed characters. I grew up watching Tony the Tiger in the Frosted Flakes commercials, but my mother was quite capable of telling me no in the grocery store when I asked for sugar cereals. (Queen of Shake-Shake)

Math Wonder: Former Wonder Years star Danica McKellar has written a book called “Math Doesn’t Suck: How to Survive Middle School Math Without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail.” Danica graduated with highest honors from UCLA with a degree in math, and she encourages young girls not to be afraid of math and to be proud of their intellectual ability. I’ll definitely be buying this book in August and giving it to every middle school girl I know. Young girls need intellectual role models, and it’s refreshing to see a celebrity doing something truly helpful.

Do We Need the “Right” the Breastfeed?: Food for thought. Jane Sandeman writes, “What the ‘right to breastfeed’ is about is making it loud and clear that new mothers should breastfeed.” Do you agree with her? Do all the public service messages about how the “breast is best” unfairly demonize women who bottle feed? (Spiked)

Here’s a late addition from Mama Luxe: If you are a woman and an entrepreneur, you have to check out this Women Entrepreneurs Blog (love the title!). Right now she is running a linkbait experiment. Hook, line, sinker.
