  • My Kitchen, Your Recipe: Candi Redmond's Koobey and Tabouleh

    Candi Kayrouz Redmond of Rineyville sent me her family’s recipes for Koobey and Tabouleh a couple of months ago, but because fresh mint was an integral part of the Koobey recipe, I knew I would have to wait until spring (or Kentucky Derby time) to make it.

    These recipes are Lebanese — Candi’s father was from Becharre, Lebanon; her mother was Italian. Candi calls herself a plain, old-fashioned cook, but she says her husband, Eric, likes to try new things and loves to spice things up.

  • 'Momologues' performed to benefit SpringHaven

    Mother’s Day has come and gone, but moms still will take center stage and a nonprofit group will benefit when the Historic State Theater hosts the play “MOMologues” on Sunday.

  • 'Something Borrowed' speckled with reality but somewhat lacking

    “Something Borrowed” is the kind of movie that’s about more than just one relationship. It’s a romantic comedy but at the same time a dramatic look at many interpersonal relationships.

  • Some days can be transformed

    Not every day is golden. Some days start out as tarnished copper and are — as if manipulated by an exceptionally-skilled alchemist — magically transformed into something brighter and much more treasured.

    That was the case one particular day last week.

    The day wasn’t particularly bad; it wasn’t like I’d rank it in the top 10 worst days, or even the top 100, or even the top 1,000 or ... well, you get the idea. That’s why it got the classification of tarnished copper rather than rusty tin.
