What to serve at this year’s Oscar party? I had no clear idea about the right dish until I glanced at a list of the movies in contention.
It’s a fact, when it comes to buying or selling any house the kitchen gets the No. 1 scrutiny and can make or break the sale. It is the most used space in the house and has the most expensive components concentrated in one spot. The kitchen has been the most evolved room in the house and does not look nor function the same as yesterday’s kitchen.
I have Olympic fever, I love the Winter Olympics and so far in the first week, I haven’t been disappointed. Since my dream of participating in the Olympics was nothing more than a pipe dream, I’ve decided to create my own. I’ve watched many Olympians that thank their mom (and dads) for all the support over the years to help them win a medal. Why should the kids have all the fun, why not have our own Olympics or “Mom Olympics.” We don’t need to worry about a winter or summer season since being a Mom Olympian is a year-round pursuit.
High pressure is in control and that means above normal temperatures and dry conditions are going to rule our forecast for a while.
Mayor Greg Stanton will kick off Phoenix’s year-long countdown to Super Bowl XLIX with a downtown Super Pool Party at the rooftop outdoor pool of the Palomar Hotel.
The last time we saw Mom, Interrupted she was recklessly enjoying Phoenix’s decadently warm weather at the expense of her friends and colleagues in colder climes. As it turned out, that may not have been wise…
The state bird of Arizona is a sweet little fowl called the cactus wren. We also have a state gemstone (turquoise), a state reptile (ridgenose rattlesnake), and I’m willing to bet we even have a state predatory arthropod, which would be that scorpion I killed under the Christmas tree yesterday.
‘Tis the season to be jolly, to deck the halls and to buy presents for family and friends. But, did you know the holidays are also considered by some experts to be a good time to buy or sell a home?
Cheesecake by definition is rich and decadent. So we knew that if we were going to make a special cheesecake just for Christmas, it would need to be even richer and even more decadent.
Finding a faux snow- and candy cane-filled homage to Santa Claus is easy; just look at your local mall for the line snaking around the giant Christmas tree. Honing in on an experience that makes as much of the Christmas story — the story of the birth of Jesus — is another matter.
I have always enjoyed this time of year. Even as a child growing up in Chicago, fall afternoons meant playing baseball with a sweatshirt on or running through piles of fallen leaves, some of which were raked quite neatly and I mischievously found joy in rummaging through those piles as well.
Those of you with a passing knowledge of college basketball may remember the name Bob Knight. He was fired as Indiana University basketball coach in 2000 and took a job at Texas Tech in 2001.
Some cooks like to change up the Thanksgiving meal — a sous vide turkey here, a sweet potato souffle there. But on a holiday dedicated to tradition, innovation can spark revolt.
The city of Phoenix is calling for the public’s help to keep the homeless in Phoenix warm this winter.
All of a sudden the temperature changed.
Arizona restaurant patios are teeming with patrons, the stores are filled with holiday decorations, and daytime temperatures have dipped into the 80s. Fall has arrived in Arizona, and that means it’s also the beginning of flu season.
The cooler fall temperatures are here at last. Summer vacation time is lingering in the corners of our minds. Our children and grandchildren are back in school. The winter visitors are beginning to arrive. The traffic volume is heavier. The stores are gearing up for the upcoming fall festivals and winter holidays. Many of us are beginning to feel like we’re stuck in the “I Love Lucy” candy factory episode on a speeding conveyer belt, hurtling along and out of control. There’s so much busy packed into our days that we’re in danger of forgetting that the origin of holiday is holy day. If you’re days are anything like mine, I’m sure you’ve noticed that the business of busy too frequently equates to major stress and anxiety. When I prayed about my own busyness, I found my mind dwelling on two Bible stories.
The Desert Vista cross country programs have a different feel in 2013.
This Tale of the Temperature begins, like so many do, with Christmas. One joyous holiday evening last year I slogged home from work, having been released early from my toils, Cratchit-style, by my benevolent employer, and schlepped my briefcase down the hall.
BLT sandwiches are synonymous with summer. And the only thing better than a BLT sandwich is a grilled BLT pizza!
When I was growing up, I loved my mom’s stuffed eggs. Heck, as a chubby and happy-go-lucky kid, I loved anything filled with mayonnaise.
This year, the Valley has been experiencing a relentless and record-breaking heat wave due to a lingering high pressure system hanging over the West. With the summer still in full swing, warnings are being issued about the dangers of leaving children and pets in hot cars for any length of time.
When hot weather squelches your appetite, sip your way to refreshment with these chilling beverages.
When I was growing up in Virginia, one of the signs of summer I anticipated most was the appearance of fat green tomatoes on the vines in our garden. We picked them well before they started to blush, dipped the thick slices in egg and milk, dredged them with cornmeal, salt and pepper, then fried them in a skillet.
The wine cooler has a bit of an identity problem. Is it a wine spritzer? A wine cocktail? Sangria? And what about that wild child moment in the ‘80s when it was the hottest thing on the party scene?
