Apron Free Cooking ~ Bacon Ranch Potato Salad

Cookouts and potato salads go hand in hand. It’s a rare picnic table that doesn’t have at least one potato salad featured among the dishes.However, the traditional salads made with mayonnaise present a challenge during hot summer barbeques. The best suggestion I have for those salads: keep them in the fridge until it’s time to eat. Return them to the fridge as soon as everyone has been served.Since that isn’t always feasible, the next solution is ...

Movie review: “If I Stay”

“If I Stay” is a pretty depressing teen romance about a young couple who love, lose, and one of them might die. It’s based on one of those “YA” (Young Adult) books that are so hot as film projects right now. There’s a temptation to compare it to “The Fault in Our Stars,” another teen romance where the characters spent a lot of time on the brink of death. That film was sweeter, sadder and made more sense than this one. “If I Stay” wou...

Apron Free Cooking ~ Cheesy Egg Salad

Egg salad is classic sandwich filler. I think everybody has a memory of egg salad sandwiches packed in school lunches. I remember my grandma packing egg salad sandwiches and dill pickles for my dad and I to eat on long car trips.My neighbors must keep a bowl of egg salad in the fridge for handy lunch making, since I see them eating it several times a week folded into a slice of bread. Even gas stations, deli and luncheon counters still offer egg salad sandwiches as “lunch-on-...

Movie Review: ‘Let’s Be Cops’

This past Sunday, I was getting ready to slog my way through a one-and-a-half-star review of “The Expendables 3,” which I saw Friday night, when I decided to check the weekend box office results to make sure it was really the right film to review. Much to my surprise, the latest installment of the tired action franchise lost out on even the #3 position, getting upset by the debuting comedy “Let’s Be Cops.” I scrambled out the door to get to whatever showing of th...

Apron Free Cooking ~ Black Forest Pancakes

Pancakes are a Saturday morning tradition in my family. My folks love when all the kids and grandkids show up for a marathon pancake breakfast. My dad used to turn pancakes as long as somebody would sit at the table and eat. Let me tell you, with five kids, nine grandchildren and an odd number of tag along friends, there was somebody eating for hours!Of course, the coffee pot and the tea kettle were constantly brewing hot beverages, since you can’t eat pancakes without someth...

Movie Review: “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”

Was “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” ever a quality franchise? I don’t think it was. I think the movies and especially the cartoon are regarded as thinly-veiled toy commercials even by their biggest fans.

Ministerial Acts

There is never any shortage of television shows, novels and movies about the criminal justice system and courtroom trials. While writers and directors present the drama of those stories, they almost never deal with the more mundane, procedural details associated with trials. That’s understandable, but those elements are an essential part of the entire operation.That was evident in a case that we recently reviewed here – at the Supreme Court of Ohio. The case began all t...

Apron Free Cooking ~ Red White & Green Salad

I love garden produce. Especially produce from the neighbors’ gardens! This summer we’ve seen the bounty of several neighborhood gardens – zucchini and squash from one house, cucumbers from another and tomatoes from a third!This salad capitalizes on those fresh veggies. You can grow your own, shop at a farmer’s market or produce stand, if your neighbors aren’t the sharing kind. Honestly, I have yet to meet a backyard gardener who isn’t willing to...

Movie review: “Guardians of the Galaxy”

The Guardians of the Galaxy come from the same Marvel universe as The Avengers. But it doesn’t take five solo movies to get us to the big team-up project. The idea here is that the cast is so diverse that there has to be somebody you like. And if it turns out that you like all five main characters, so much the better.
