I watched the Oscar's last Sunday, and as usual, it reminded me that there are a lot of great movies I haven't seen yet. Whether it's a Best Picture nominee I've been meaning to see, or a foreign title that I didn't know about, it's a nice way to highlight some of the interesting films that come out each year. You can find photos and videos of the high points on the Oscars' website.

You can find my blog post with all of the nominees here.

Super Snacks

Kevin's picture

The dark months of January and February just so happen to have some big televised events. With the Super Bowl and the Academy Awards on the horizon, it's a good time to talk about snacks. Because the Super Bowl isn't just about expensive commercials, it's about what you'll be snacking while you watch them. Even if you don't plan to watch the game or the Oscars, making your own snacks can be healthier and cheaper than buying them.

Check out these three books for recipes to create tasty treats for any occasion.
