I've described this feeling before – when you dig the new Pottery Barn catalog out of your mailbox, ooh and ahhh at the carefully placed, beautiful objects inside and think, “Man, my house would look great if I had ______.”
I had the pleasure of dining this weekend with a dinner club focused on enjoying local foods during the summer season.
While the C-U Schools Foundation's I.D.E.A. Store is still getting set up in the shopping center just east of Neil Street on Springfield Ave., it's clear to me that it has a lot of potential. It will open in September.
When a PR team for Sephora contacted The News-Gazette to let us know we could visit their new store at Market Place Mall before it opened to the public, my editor and I figured it might be a good time to write a makeup-tip story for the features section. (The store opens Friday.)
I had the pleasure of interviewing John Beatty yesterday, a strongman and nurse from Pesotum who's competing on "America's Got Talent."
Between 2008 and when I started in the features department last September, I did some work in The News-Gazette's marketing department.
At my house, the bags my newspapers arrive in tend to pile up.
I reuse them to clean up after dogs I'm dogsitting and during painting projects. They're the perfect size and shape to hold a paintbrush between coats. I put the bag and brush into the fridge so the paint doesn't dry out.
Rob and I recently tried a recipe for beer-can chicken from "The Big Book of BBQ."
It turned out so well that I thought I'd share the recipe with you. We made two birds instead of the three this recipe calls for and they turned out well.
