Comment on strawberry summer cake by Natalie

I made this into a layer cake for my friend’s birthday. I made two cakes using a 9-inch springform pan. I let the first cool while the other was baking. I used a cream cheese frosting because I thought the whipped cream I usually serve with this cake wouldn’t stand up well when sandwiched between the two cakes. I frosted the top of the first, then flipped the second upside down and put it on top so the top would be flatter. I had enough frosting to frost the middle and top generously, then the s...

Natalie Lynn ‘One’

Natalie Lynn, a Toronto based pop/rock artist, recently released her debut single One. It’s a solid uptempo track, a nice change from the gloomy-sad songs dominating the charts. Natalie says “it’s like the feeling of being at the top of a roller coaster. Not the part when you actually start going down, but right before that. Pure excitement and vulnerability. The feeling like you might just be on the top of the world.” Pulling influence from Stevie Nicks, Haim and The 1975, her sounds connects ...

Elevating Ranch Dressing by Natalie

Ranch dressing was an icon of my childhood. Was it one of yours? It just NEVER. GOT. OLD. And honestly, I still feel like a 6-year-old trying to put ranch on everything. What’s exciting is when you take basic ranch dressing and put some spunk in it. It’s such a perfect blank slate for so […]

Comment on perfect meatballs and spaghetti by Natalie

I made them gluten-free by using gf panko and gf pasta. Everything worked great and the meatballs had such a deep flavor! Other changes, some accidental: 1. 2 tbsp pesto subbed for the parsley in the meatballs 2. Forgot to add the minced garlic to the meatballs 3. Garlic powder instead of onion powder bc I didn’t have it 4. Doubled the sauce (would definitely do this every time) 5. 2 tbsp pesto in the sauce I loved the extra flavor boost from the pesto, so I’ll continue to do that whenever I hav...

Trend Alert: 3 New Direct-to-Consumer Companies Shaking Up the Paint Industry

If you’ve ever painted anything, you know what an ordeal just buying the paint can be. First: you walk into the hardware store and are confronted with a towering wall of hundreds of paint swatches. Then, you’ll need to spend some time in front of the wall, sorting through handfuls of paint chips and trying to picture what they’d look like in your space, despite the harsh fluorescent lighting above you. Finally, after at least one back and forth to the hardware store with your pockets full of pai...

Things are definitely moving in the right direction, more and more women are getting leading roles and making waves in the film world.

Lethal Weapon Season 3 Finale Recap: Was That Damon Wayans Last Ep?

There’s plenty of celebration — a wedding! a romantic reunion! a patched-up friendship! — in Lethal Weapon‘s Season 3 finale. But there’s also an undercurrent of worry: Does the season-ender also mark star Damon Wayans’ exit from the Fox dramedy? After all, in October 2018, Wayans surprised fans (and some behind-the-scenes folks) by announcing he would leave the series that December, citing age and his diabetes as reasons. Weeks later, Lethal got an order for an additional two episodes, and pr...

Best things to do in Columbus, Ohio

Cities on the coasts like San Francisco and New York City offer a cultured vibe that’s hard to match. But with the astronomical cost of living and ultra-competitive housing markets, simply surviving in a trendy urban center is increasingly difficult to afford. People looking for an innovative and entertaining place to live that won’t empty your bank account shouldn’t pigeonhole themselves along the Atlantic or Pacific, though. They should instead be looking toward the Midwest. More specifical...

On the Importance of Reputation

by Hohn Cho s he is wont to do, Doug Wilson wrote and published to the general public a strongly-worded opinion piece regarding a matter of current controversy. I responded to him here, and Phil Johnson added a number of helpful points here. As an aside, I actually wasn't aware that Phil and Doug were friends, which I say only to highlight Phil's fair-minded impartiality in posting my article, and to reiterate that my words are my own and should not be attributed to Phil or anyone else.

'Isn’t It Romantic' Is Escapist Fare with a Cheeky Twist

None The romantic comedy, far from its heyday in the '90s, has become an oversaturated and cliché-ridden genre. But to satirize rom-coms, or to bemoan their lack of originality or insight into the human condition, is just as unappealing. The reality of the genre is that much of it, in all its iterations, is tired. But can't the same be said for genre fare at large? Rom-coms, like all genres, have good and bad exemplars in equal measure. Science fiction, fantasy and superhero films, it can be sa...

Auto-replenishment: Is This the Future of Retail Technology?

By Sunny Dhami The retail supply chain is undergoing a revolution. From grocery stores automating their stock systems so your favourite items are always on the shelf, to Amazon releasing their Dash Button so you never have to think about ordering items like printer ink and toilet paper again. It looks like auto-replenishment is going to play a bit part in the future of retail. Most retailers have a less than positive outlook on the year ahead, with consumers pivoting away from the High Street, i...

How ‘Isn’t It Romantic?’ Made Director Todd Strauss-Schulson’s Childhood Dream a Cinematic Reality

Like many romantic comedies, Isn’t It Romantic? makes New York City a big part of the story. In fact, there are two versions of The Big Apple in the movie. First, there’s the grungy, dingy real New York City that we all know and love. Then there’s the colorful, vibrant and picturesque version of New York City that exists in the romcom dream world that Rebel Wilson finds herself stuck in. It’s in this world that director Todd Strauss-Schulson was able to create a scene that he’s been dreaming of...

The New-Age Rom-Com Tropes That Will Reshape How We Think About Love

We have entered a new era of romantic comedies, and like any new era, this one comes with a slew of distinctions from society’s previous form, all of which descend from one major shift. Much like the new philosophical way of thinking moved us into the Age of Enlightenment, and like the advent of the cotton gin and steam engine brought about the Industrial Revolution, society’s recent social progress has ushered us into the Rom-Comaissance — marked largely by the death of the classic rom-com trop...

‘Isn’t It Romantic?’ Director Todd Strauss-Schulson Watched Every Romantic Comedy Made Between 1988 and 2007 to Prepare [Interview]

Isn’t It Romantic? is in theaters right now. The story follows a New York architect named Natalie (Rebel Wilson) who works hard to get noticed at her job. But more often than not gets relegated to the sidelines, sent out for coffee instead of presenting her big ideas for her firm’s clients. Life takes an odd turn when Natalie gets knocked unconscious and wakes up in her own romantic comedy. It’s both an unsettling nightmare and a hilarious dream.

On Burt Lancaster's 'The Midnight Man' and a Hard-knock Life

None Excavated from the Universal vaults and finally released on disc is The Midnight Man (1974), the second and last film directed by its star, Burt Lancaster. His first effort as director-producer-star, The Kentuckian (1955), was a rich, vigorous work of western Americana, violent yet optimistic. This second film, made 20 years later, reflects a wearier outlook of disillusion and regret within the trappings of gumshoe noir. Vietnam and Watergate aren't mentioned; the only reference to contemp...

‘Isn’t It Romantic’ Review: A Clever and Charming Rom-Com Parody With a Wonderful Rebel Wilson Performance

“This is like The Matrix for lonely women,” retorts Natalie, the clever lead of the affable new romantic-comedy spoof Isn’t It Romantic . The “this” in question is the inexplicable alternate universe in which Natalie finds herself, a version of New York City that’s straight out of the romantic-comedy playbook. Isn’t It Romantic isn’t the first film-length parody of rom-coms, nor is it the sharpest or wittiest, but the film’s ebullience and the sheer charm offensive courtesy of lead ac...

Ricky Williams on his fateful Celebrity Big Brother choice

Ouch. Ricky Williams dominated down the stretch in Celebrity Big Brother, winning the last two Head of House competitions as well as the final veto challenge. But in the end, he couldn’t even get a single jury vote for his efforts. Ricky was shut out against Tamar Braxton, who won the season unanimously while the former Heisman winner and NFL star was left with the $50,000 runner-up prize. How does Ricky feel about being swept? Does he regret not taking Dina Lohan or Lolo Jones to the end instea...

On Star Trek: TNG, those aren't Captain Picard's hands holding his flute

Sir Patrick Stewart doesn't play the Reskian flute, or any flute for that matter. The trick worked on me at least, because I hadn't noticed even after seeing this episode several times over the last 26 (!) years. From Wikipedia: ...As neither Stewart nor Hughes could play their instruments, it required a number of camera techniques to be used in order to disguise the musicians playing just off screen. Husband and wife duo Natalie and Bryce Martin played the piano and tin whistle respective...

Comment on roasted yams and chickpeas with yogurt by Natalie

Ok, I’ve made this several times and these are my two cents: I prefer the sweet taters chopped into ~1 in cubes. It’s kind of awkward to cut wedges and I like the texture created by cubes. I make double the chickpeas. They’re good. So good! Having run out of honey, I’ve discovered that this works just fine with brown sugar, in case you were wondering. I add cumin, cayenne, chili powder, etc. to the chickpeas and they are better for it…yum. I like the yogurt sauce with a LOT MORE olive oil. I hav...
