RISEN is a Must See Cinema Adventure!

18 February 2016

Hollywood has done it! They have finally created a cinematic epic that stays true to the Bible AND respects the intelligence of its audience. The crew helmed by Director Kevin Reynolds (The Count of Monte Cristo & Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) and cast starring Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love) and Tom Felton (Harry Potter series) are ace.

FYI: Minor spoilers pepper this review.

Jersey Boys: Q&A with Drew Seeley

15 February 2016

Jersey Boys, the 2005 jukebox musical featuring music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe and a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, has been wowing audiences worldwide. Reviewing the London production, The Times' critic Benedict Nightingale echoed the general belief that "there were times when...the performers were making even the Beatles sound somewhat lacking in musical texture". And for the past year and a half (since October 2014), Drew Seeley (perhaps best known for his collaborations with Disney) "adds a nice balance to the group, toning down the Jersey mobster vibe--think of him as light Italian" according to Broadway World. So pull up a chair, grab a cuppa and let's talk with Mr. Seeley about everything from the show to Sopranos to Gene Kelly...

Bobby Flay Does it Again: Brunch at Bobby's!

01 February 2016

Culinary and celebrity chef, Bobby Flay, released a new cookbook last September. And what a beautiful book it is with numerous colorful and scrumptious photographs accompanying the 140 recipes ranging from breads/pastries, breakfast drinks (coffees/teas/cocktails), homemade syrups/spreads, egg dishes, pancakes/waffles/french toast, sandwiches, fruit dishes and savory side dishes.

  • The recipes are neither low-carb nor low-calorie but when does anyone ever count calories during brunch?
  • Bobby Flay's interest in spices (i.e. chipotle and chiles) is featured in a handful of the recipes as are some exotic ingredients that won't be easily acquired in your local Albertsons or Trader Joe's.
  • Recipes are not easy for beginners in the kitchen.

Enjoy! And Happy Brunch!
