Kids Column: Food for Thought…from Emily’s Kitchen

  Take a look in your spice cabinet. You might see some oregano, garlic powder, paprika, or some chili flakes in there, but you definitely will see some salt and pepper, since they are staples in most everyone’s kitchens. The most common spices in anyone’s cabinet, salt and pepper may also be two of the most important spices, even going back in history. Early explorers traveled across oceans for salt because of its high value and multiple purposes, such as drying and preserving food before the time of refrigeration. In ...

Law in Your Corner

The prohibition against the infliction of cruel and unusual punishment is a Constitutional protection afforded by both the U.S. Constitution (Eighth Amendment) and the New Jersey State Constitution.  The right derives from the notion that justice demands that punishment for a crime should be graduated and proportional to the offender and the criminal offense itself. A hallmark of our civilized society, the prohibition was the subject of one of our Supreme Court’s first decisions of 2017.  In New Jersey v. Zuber, the Court ...

Liz on Theatre

Sam Shepard’s “Simpatico” has a forceful workout at McCarter Theatre. By Liz Keill PRINCETON, NJ – If you’re at all familiar with the works of Sam Shepard, you know that he writes about gritty, unforgiving characters in what appear to be hopeless situations. In “Simpatico,” we learn that Vinnie and Carter are former partners in a race horse scheme, but dissolved that relationship 15 years ago. (Simpatico was the name of the race horse.)

On Tap at Morris Tap and Grill

RANDOLPH, NJ- So, I can assume since Craft Beer is a huge part of my life and job, that if I'm confused on exactly what a Christmas beer is... then most of you are as well.   Can a holiday be a style of beer? And if we could determine what a Christmas beer is, how can we decipher it from a Winter ale?  Is it all about a specific profile, such as flavor or body, or is it the timing of the release?  I mean beeradvocate.com doesn’t even have it listed as a style, what?  If the ...

Perspective From The Rear View Mirror

My dad was a generous man. He gave me many gifts throughout my life, both tangible and intangible.  He passed away last month and this is my first Father’s Day without him.  Today I am concentrating on the intangible gifts he gave to me.  My father was someone who showed me how to handle adversity with grace and stoicism.  When he was just a boy he learned how hard life can be. He watched his sister die of kidney failure when she was six years old.  He was only eleven at the time. Just a year later, his mother ...

The Mommy's Review

My first and last visit to Nashville was about 15 or 16 years ago with my boyfriend (now husband), and I’ve been craving a return trip for a while, especially since I’m such a big fan of the Nashville TV show on ABC. Luckily, we were able to take the kids on a fun trip there recently, and we wound up flying into Nashville and turning our excursion into a mini-road trip with stops in Chattanooga and Atlanta. After landing at BNA and picking up our rental car (through Costco - always the best deal I can find), we took the 2-hour ...
