Melissa made the big announcement this morning on the Tad & Melissa Show that she has co-authored a new children’s book, called “Whale of an Idea!” It’s available now online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble!
There is a new Food Network show, called “Kids Sweets Showdown,” that starts tonight – and a student at Renfroe Middle School in Decatur will compete! Twelve-year-old Carrie Crespino will prepare some sweets and compete for a $10,000 cash prize! See her story HERE!
Melissa recently went into a Hallmark store and was surprised to find an ornament MISSING. Hallmark offers a series of double-jersey ornaments in the following combinations: Mother/Daughter, Dad/Daughter, and Dad/Son. But they failed to manufacture Mother/Son and Melissa wants to change that! Do you agree?

This is a great appetizer for watching football or a holiday gathering! Ingredients (you might want to double this!) 1 Eggplant 1/4 Cup Olive Oil 1/2 Cup Minced Onion 1 Minced Garlic Clove 4 Tablespoons Tomato Paste Pinch of Oregano Pinch of Basil 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice Directions Pierce the eggplant with a fork a few times and place in oven at 350 degrees until very soft. Start checking at 30 minutes, but let it go as long as it takes! When it’s done, peel the skin (it’s going to be messy) or scoop out the insides, finely chop and set aside. Sautee onion and garlic in olive oil until translucent. Add chopped eggplant and tomato paste and cook until thickened. Add the rest of the ingredients. Place in fridge (or eat it warm, you can’t go wrong!) This can be served on little pieces of bread or melba toasts. Questions? Send an email Tad@B985.com!
