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.

Movie Review: “Lucy”

For years, popular culture has perpetuated the myth that humans use only 10% of their brain and anyone who can unlock the rest of it will basically develop superpowers. This is a bogus theory, the truth (and this is the short version) is that while you may be using only a small portion of your brain at any given time, the rest is so specialized that it is not relevant to the task at hand. I’m sitting down to type this, so I’m not using the portion of my brain I use to walk. But ap...

Apron Free Cooking ~ Banana Pudding

Banana pudding has made regular appearances at church potluck dinners for years. I ran across a version of this dessert in one of the vintage cookbooks I was browsing through this week. This simple dish has remained a favorite in large part due to the easy preparation, but also for the mellow flavor.If you are planning to take this dish to a church potluck or large family gathering, I’d recommend doubling the recipe! You’ll still bring home an empty container.
