Off the Beaten Plate: Dessert Spring Rolls at Zen Zero
October 15, 2014

October 15, 2014
Fashion trends you hate: I guess they call it 3-D nail art, but it’s super-over-the-top, blinged-out fake nails. It’s totally not functional at all. I can’t even get nail polish to stay on because of my job.
Style Scout: Chris C. Cho
October 15, 2014
Fashion trends you love: I like following some European styles from Milano, Italy. Right now their slim fit, not skinny, suits are becoming more formal.
Fix-It Chick: Repair stucco cracks
October 15, 2014
Stucco should be repaired as soon as cracks appear. Small repairs on homes and structures built after the 19th century are easy to do with pre-mixed stucco repair products.
Family Adventures: No match for Schaake’s Pumpkin Patch
October 15, 2014
It was October 2011 and I was a new mom celebrating her baby’s first Halloween. When I asked my veteran mom friends where the best local pumpkin patch was, the answer was always the same: Schaake’s. At about 40 years running, Schaake’s Pumpkin Patch, east of town at 1791 North 1500 Road, is a fall mainstay for Lawrence families. By Meryl Carver-Allmond

When I hear about the art galleries in the Crossroads neighborhood, I almost immediately think of the monthly art walks on First Fridays.
Faith Forum: Is it offensive to dress up as Jesus for Halloween?

Style Scout: Annika Wooton
October 8, 2014
Fashion trends you hate: I just read an article that guys don’t like high-waisted shorts. I had no idea! They are apparently really against them and now I’m going to be self-conscious.

With apple-harvesting season in full swing, now is a great time to get out and pick some of the fresh fruit from local orchards or your own trees if you have them.
Fix-It Chick: Install a pet door in a storm window
October 8, 2014
Installing a small pet door into a removable storm window, rather than a door, is a great way to allow your cat access to the outdoors without the permanence associated with installation in a door or wall.
Cooking from Scratch: Grandma’s apple pie
October 8, 2014
The other day I got a craving for a classic apple pie. Just as I was firing up my laptop to consider recipes, my eyes lit upon my grandmother’s battered copy of our family cookbook, “Cooking With the Carvers.”
