Re -Taste it ~ Holiday Edition with M.O.M Catherine McCord of

Sharing one of our favorites from the past :

Spend the holidays with mom and acclaimed food blogger, Catherine McCord of  

It's always difficult to eat well or to eat food that everyone loves, but Catherine sure can change that for you M.O.Ms and shares some of her family traditions and favorites.

"Every Christmas Eve we get together with all of our family and open gifts. We take turn letting everyone play Santa by putting on a floppy red hat and passing the gifts out. Then we head into the dining room for an enormous feast with all the fixins: a great big ham, turkey with cranberry sauce, shrimp cocktail, sweet potato biscuits and more! Right before bed we pull off the second to last ring on the kids 25 day paper chain, read Twas the Night Before Christmas and head off to bed.

The next morning the kids bound of of bed and downstairs to see what Santa has brought. We make tall mugs of hot chocolate, play in our pj's and then have big plates of pumpkin wafflesChristmas morning breakfast strata and winter fruit salad. It really is the greatest two days of the year!"

Catherine’s new cookbook, Weelicious: One Family. OneMeal. launched this fall, and offers realistic solutions to the daily challenge of feeding your kids and seeks to inspire kids to be great eaters. Her book can be a great stocking stuffer and gift this holiday season as well.

#FlashbackFriday >> Celebrity M.O.M Sasha Alexander ~ A Better Planner Now That She Is A Mom

{#FFjuly2011  -  currently rizzoli & isles airs on TNT Tuesdays 9/8c}  See below what 4+years ago looked like for this Celeb M.O.M

A talented and versatile actress in both film and television, Sasha Alexander is best known for her role as Special Agent Caitlin “Kate” Todd in the first two seasons of the popular drama NCIS. Alexander was also a regular on the critically acclaimed drama Dawson's Creek, as well as Presidio Med and The Nine. In addition, she has had guest-starring roles on such popular shows as Friends, House and Greg the Bunny.

On the big screen, Alexander recently completed the independent film Coming and Going as the romantic lead opposite Rhys Darby. She was also part of the all-star cast of the hit film He's Just Not That Into You and co-starred with Jim Carrey in the movie Yes Man.  

Her current television role is that of Boston medical examiner Maura Isles on the new TNT series Rizzoli & Isles, which is returning Monday July 11, so set your DVRs or make a date to catch up with her on screen .

Being a mom of 2 (Lucia & Leonardo), Sasha is also balancing off screen motherhood and being (as her twitter bio states) an Actress & Producer, Mom, Dance enthusiast, French student, & cheese lover too.  We think this constitutes Sasha being a certifiable M.O.M!
