Lawrence couple aim to keep Mexican ‘ranch’ cooking tradition alive with cookbook
April 24, 2014
Three trips back to the western Mexican ranch on which she grew up — and countless phone conversations with her father — led to the publication by a Lawrence woman, alongside her husband, of a Mexican cookbook that aims to present the food at its most authentic while also preserving an eroding culinary tradition. By Stephen Montemayor

Style Scout: Erinn Stacie
April 24, 2014
What would you like to see more or less of in Lawrence? More events that bring people out to socialize and to see bands like The Rent. I just saw a little kid on the sidewalk showing his grandfather how to do the Dougie! Less of? Nothing comes to mind.
Mrs. Mass.: Downtown full of gift ideas for mom
April 24, 2014

Garden Variety: Late spring freeze can have lasting effects
April 24, 2014
Just when we had allowed Spring Fever to really get the best of us, buying plants, cleaning the winter accumulation, trimming, and even mowing, along comes the freeze — a killing freeze in some places with only mottled frost in others. Out come the old sheets and blankets covering our most beloved and dotting our landscape like a bad modern art painting.
Fix-It Chick: Install a night latch
April 24, 2014
A night latch is a surface-mounted door lock that can be installed on the interior of any door. Night latches are easier to install than standard deadbolts and provide a similar amount of security.
Introducing Limestone’s ‘Neoprairie’ pizza
April 24, 2014
The 20,000-pound limestone, wood-fired behemoth that heats up to 1,000 degrees and bakes a pizza in 90 seconds is the key ingredient for the Neapolitan-style pizza made from Kansas flour, local farm-sourced tomatoes and other regional ingredients. The masterminds behind the operation have coined these 12-inch pies as “Neoprairie,” each created with the subtlety of a few basic ingredients.

Bite Sighs: Cinnamon rolls with a twist
April 23, 2014
When my friend Angie asked for a King cake last month, I was happy to oblige. I found an excellent recipe online, made the cake and was immediately addicted. Since my daily carb limit doesn’t include huge portions of cake, I decided to have a go at adapting the recipe to something smaller. Turns out, it lends itself perfectly to cinnamon rolls.
Morel mushrooms are a rare delight
April 23, 2014
While they’re deserving of their deeply savory and earthy reputation, morel mushrooms — which have a short season in mid-spring in Kansas — are all but impossible to grow yourself. In order to get a basket full, you either have to know how to forage for them or know someone else who does.
