Though cooking and preparing meals can be a highly personal and intimate work of art — or love, as I like to describe it — pleasing the palate of others requires the one who labors to reach far into the abyss of research if one’s goal is to impress and make the ones you love well, feel loved.
You would think that someone who writes about TV would be able to talk about all kinds of TV shows. But the truth is, I really can’t.
John Stamos in a feel-good Disney sports story sounds like a complete no-brainer, so you have to wonder why no one ever thought of it before. Fortunately for us, someone finally did with the new Disney+ series “Big Shot,” giving us the opportunity to see Stamos in a role custom made for him …
Mr. and Mrs. Mark Mareske of West Logan are pleased to announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Amy Leigh Mareske, to Jordan Matthew Bryant, son of Mr. Mack Bryant Jr. and the late Tammy Bryant of Chapmanville.
As more light seeps in from the tunnel of not knowing what’s coming next with the pandemic, I continue to wrap myself in gratitude for what we have and comfort myself with a gentleness that speaks to the pressure I feel — pressure to perform or constantly feel enthusiastic.
There is absolutely nothing about the vague, bland premise of ABC’s new comedy, “Home Economics,” that would make you think the show would be funny. So, you’d be forgiven for skipping it, as I almost did. But if you don’t watch, you’ll miss a great show that’s as heartwarming as it is hilari…
Over the past 15 years, Chuck Lorre has become one of the most prolific producers in TV today. The creator of comedies like “Two and a Half Men,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mom” has very few misses on his resume as Lorre can seemingly take the most basic premise and turn it into a smash. But…
I’m always inspired when it comes to filling a cast iron skillet. There are so many beautiful dishes that can be experienced with this old, indestructible, passed-down pan.
Having a famous father can be a mixed blessing if you’re both singers, both songwriters, both musicians. Comparisons are almost unavoidable, but they’re not always fair.
Jennifer Garner didn’t come up with the concept of a Yes Day. But when she and her middle daughter discovered Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s book about a crazy 24 hours where parents have to say yes to their children’s demands almost a decade ago, they were hooked. It became a beloved and exhausting…
Jay Hill, who works as a principal at Brookview Elementary School in Boone County, has established a studio in his home that will serve as a platform for the artists he works with.
Easter is just a few weeks away. I’d like to say this year went quickly and the arrival somehow surprised me, but the opposite is true — what a long year.
A title like “Country Comfort” leads you to expect a show that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy. But Netflix’s new comedy by that name only makes you feel annoyance at its weak premise and irritating characters.
I have long believed that “Top Chef” is the best reality competition show on television, and there is nothing in the first episode of season 18 to change my mind.
There’s little more eye catching and alluring than a beautiful bowl of food — except maybe when the food is as delicious as it looks. That is when something like legacy and sharing recipes, and passing down Momma’s secrets — begins to happen. And this dish is that one-hit wonder that leaves …
In 2006, Bravo opened the reality TV equivalent of Pandora’s box with the premiere of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” That one show led to “Real Housewives” series in nine other communities plus numerous other spin-offs as the most engaging housewives are rewarded with series of their own.
Apple pie. Could there be anything more American than apple pie? The most identifiable dish that has become the symbolic icon for events, holidays and just good ol’ fashioned eating has finally made it to my table.
The weather is so beautiful today as I write this. It’s like mother nature was trying to be nice and apologizing for the extreme harsh reprimand of the last few weeks. And, oh, can she throw a fit.
If I made a list of all the 1980s shows I thought would be rebooted, “Punky Brewster” would definitely be at the bottom. Yet, “Punky” is back on Peacock, and as strange of a choice as it might seem, it totally works.
Normally, I hate to go back and write about a new show after it’s already aired a few episodes, but I believe my job is to tell you what shows you should (and shouldn’t) watch. And I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you about one of the most entertaining dramas on TV right now — CBS’ “The Eq…
How can it be that the iconic, love-centered heart emblem has anything to do with the fat, conical-shaped organ that is the center of our being?
Kevin James is a big deal in the Bentley household. “The King of Queens” is my husband’s favorite show of all-time. We’ve seen nearly every one of his movies, and we’ve even seen his stand-up act.
