On this week's episode of Parenting Roundabout's entertainment-themed Round 2, Catherine and Terri continue watching The Great American Baking Show and listening to The West Wing Weekly podcast. Plus, Catherine read two books! Here’s your road map:

01:05 The Great American Baking Show — We don’t understand the rules or the plan here (or the appeal of oeufs en neige), but our sweet tooths are perfectly happy to go along for the ride. Next time: French pastries … we think.

13:17 Winter Vacation Reading — Catherine managed to read two books over the winter break, and she shares her thoughts on The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton and Eligible, Curtis Sittenfeld’s modern-day retelling of Pride and Prejudice.

20:55 The West Wing Weekly — A peek into Josh and Hrishi’s podcasting process has us comparing and contrasting with our own rather less professional approach (call it folksy!).

Next week, we continue with The Great American Baking Show and report on the Golden Globe awards. We’ll be live-tweeting those on Sunday, January 8, too, so join us on Twitter for that. Plus, check out what we’re looking forward to in pop culture this year on Parenting Roundabout Episode 150. We’d love to hear your picks, too. Share in the comments here or on our Facebook page.
