Watched at Home: Top Streaming Films for the Week of April 24

Hey there, fellow couch potatoes! This week on DEG’s Watched at Home Top 20, Nomadland finally turned enough heads to land at No. 11 thanks to Oscar wins for Best Picture, Director and Actress. Fellow winner (for Best Original Screenplay) Promising Young Woman also made a move up to No. 2 and bumping Tom Hanks’ News of the World to No. 3. Otherwise, Wonder Woman 1984 took the crown once more as it has for the last month or so, though its grasp seems a little shakier given the latest competition...

Comment on unfussy rugelach by Barb.

Made the rugelach and it is the most glorious tasting delicacy ever. However, in my version, it turned out to be the ugliest I’ve made anything in a long time–not your fault or that of the recipe. The dough was too sticky and wouldn’t hold together. Not sure what I did wrong–but it was a pure delight following your recipe. Thank you so much. Gave a whole new meaning to ‘unfussy’ – barb.
