Be sure to tune for the final episode of "Opera is my Hobby"

Sarah Henning

Every week since Sept. 19, 1952, Jim Seaver has shared his love of opera with Kansas Public Radio listeners. But this week, that will come to an end. At 7 p.m. Friday, KPR will air the final episode of "Opera is my Hobby," which will, fittingly, cover Strauss' "Die Fledermaus" ...

Are these cookies or rabbits? Sheesh.

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/shenning/photos/2011/dec/21/226994/ This week it seems I can't twirl in place without stepping on a tray of holiday sweets. They're everywhere — in my fridge, in the office, even on a group run (What's a group training session without a giant cookie for a post-run snack?). OK, so I'm partially to ...

Crazy, Stupid, Running: My two favorite movies of the year — what were yours?

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/shenning/photos/2011/dec/16/226786/ Because I'm a boring mom and have no life, I hardly got to see any movies this year. I mean, it's just a hard thing to shell out $40 to a baby sitter for a night out. Add in dinner and a movie and a night out can run ...

Would a brownie by another name be as sweet?

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/shenning/photos/2011/dec/15/226715/ So, I finally made the black bean brownies [I blogged about][1] the other week. The story is that I found a recipe for [black bean-based fudge][2] and when Tweeting about that, found out that there's this underground community of people who enjoy and make brownies with black beans. From ...

Deck the halls with tinsel and tomatoes

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/shenning/photos/2011/dec/14/226652/ Last week, it was suggested to me that rather that decking the halls with traditional poinsettias, it might be just as easy and more beneficial to decorate for the holidays with the king of summer fruit — the tomato. In fact, it's already being done [by some folks in ...

My favorite way to showcase fruit during the holiday season

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/shenning/photos/2011/dec/13/226598/ It's festive, it's easy, it's healthy: It's the fruit tree! And it's one of my favorite Christmas directions. All you need to do is take a cupcake tree and fill it with various fruits. Stick it on a table, counter or mantle and you'll have a reminder to eat ...

What was your favorite book of 2011?

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/shenning/photos/2011/dec/9/226324/ So, early last year I wrote [this story][1] about 11 must-reads for 2011. The other day, I checked the list and realized that I had a horrible literary batting average when it came to the must-reads of the year. I read two of the 11. Hmmm, not so good. ...

Brownies made with WHAT?

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/shenning/photos/2011/dec/8/226229/ I've had quite the [Twitter][1] and Facebook conversation this morning about what constitutes a brownie. It started when I found [this recipe][2] last night for fudge made with BLACK BEANS. That got a discussion going and I found out there's a whole underground world that includes many a recipe ...

Buy?! I'll make you an ornament wreath!

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/photos/2011/dec/05/226033/ I have never been a crafty person. And by crafty, I mean in the Etsy sense, not the Tyrion Lannister sense. Sure, I can sew, but it's never more than to fix a missing button. I don't paint, unless you count basic walls and trim. And whenever my son ...

Holiday shopping this weekend? A couple of good handmade sales

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/shenning/photos/2011/dec/6/226080/ If you haven't picked up all your gifts yet (or haven't started), you've got two good chances at getting handmade, local and indie items this weekend. The first, as you can see above, is the Lola Giant sale, a two-day market featuring more than 25 local, handmade artists. The ...
