Sara Shepherd

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2012/nov/08/244409/ We profiled each of this year’s five Phoenix Award winners in Sunday’s paper [and here on Lawrence.com][1].

Sculpture or paraphernalia? ‘Degenerate Art: The Art & Culture of Glass Pipes’

Sara Shepherd

Fact: Some glass pipes are fancier than others. And a good number of folks who create the fancy variety would prefer their work be called art instead of just, you know, paraphernalia. http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2012/oct/29/243866/ At 7 p.m. Nov. 16, the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire St., is screening a documentary ...

Don't make the same mistakes we did — pumpkin craft fails

Sara Shepherd

http://www2.ljworld.com/photos/2012/oct/14/242930/ It only took one touch from a piece of misplaced tape for me to realize my gray-on-white Chevron Pumpkin — looking promising after a flawless basecoat of glossy white spray paint — had turned the corner and was headed straight down the road to Craft Fail City. Without primer, ...

Cooking with something new: Nutella (and pretzels)

Sara Shepherd

http://www.lawrence.com/photos/2012/oct/12/242647/ I’ve undoubtedly eaten more than my fair share of Nutella on its own — on ice cream, toast, crepes, fruit, by the spoonful and (I confess!) straight off a knife — but never baked with it. On the one hand, I’ve always thought, it’s kind of expensive and so ...

Sara Shepherd

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2012/sep/21/241544/ One 10-piece, 1,090-calorie Chicken McNuggets meal, please. For the first time today, I learned how many calories are in my favorite meal at McDonald's. I’m still trying to decide whether I’m worried about it.

Cooking with something new: Sumac

Sara Shepherd

http://www.lawrence.com/photos/2012/aug/19/241144/ Until a few weeks ago, I knew sumac as a vigorous weed that grows in the ditches alongside Kansas highways and turns bright red in the fall.
