Saturday is Star Wars Day—May the 4th be with you! To help celebrate, our friends at Lucasfilms are sharing recipes for a few out-of-this-world treats. I think my boys and I will have a hard time choosing between the Wookiee Pies and the Ice Cream Clones!
Ice Cream Clones
Star Wars Pretzels
Death Star Popcorn Balls
Skywalker Sugar Cookies
Tomorrow, we’ll be sharing Star Wars crafts from LucasArts and, on Friday, some of my favorite new Star Wars products.

It’s February vacation week for some folks. And that usually means looking for things to help keep the kids entertained! Associate Editor Joy Howard recently found a new cookbook, Marshmallow Madness, that’s full of sweet recipes for families to make together. She reports:
Shauna Sever’s yummy cookbook Marshmallow Madness! is filled with homemade classic marshmallow recipes, along with tons of tips and techniques. But the real stars here are all the fun flavors and varieties with kid-appea, such as bubble gum and root beer float (there’s a small section just for grown-ups too). Additional recipes that incorporate marshmallows — think s’mores cupcakes — let little chefs take their new found know-how to the next delicious level. ($16.95)
