LiveWell West Denver invites you to a Taste of the Garden Produce and Health Fair on August 20 from 9-11:30 a.m. at Iglesia Luterana Cristo Rey. Each family or single adult will get a bag or box full of free fruits and vegetables! There will also be cooking demos with free samples!
What is your favorite fresh from the garden vegetable recipe? I love zucchini and asparagus. I've found that the trick to cooking asparagus is to saute them over medium/low until they turn bright green. Serve quickly. They really taste the best when they are still snappy. The rest of the menu usually goes a little something like this: baked salmon in wasabi/honey/soy sauce mix, couscous, and spring mix salad. Depending on how fancy we are feeling, we might saute the asparagus in garlic and fresh rosemary. What I like best is that none of these dishes is time or labor intensive.
Prospector has a new look for keyword searching for an improved searching experience. On the DPL site, direct links to Prospector (such as on the Didn't Find It page) will go to the new search page. If you select any search type other than Keyword, you'll go back to the "classic" interface. Prospector's Keyword search is similar to the power of DPL's new catalog:
Single search box to search all fields
Powerful relevance ranking
Facets to filter by format, language, year, location and other elements
Format limiting has not been possible before in Prospector. Now you can limit to DVDs or any other format. Use the Keyword search to enter the title or any combination of words, authors, subjects, etc. On the results list, use the "Refine by" list to limit to DVD/Videos, Books or any other format.
The span of a few heartbeats may be the difference between life and death. The concept of time is rife with clichés. Time and time again, it seems that time is running out. These films are not only racing to beat the clock, but also play with the concept of time and our perception of reality. Time may be misleading, mutable, or overlapping!
I. LOVE. THIS. COOKBOOK. Seriously people, is there a more fun-to-read, easy-on-your-busy-lifestyle, creative cookbook out there?
Fun to read because he's so entertaining and funny and he has a potty mouth that keeps it real.
Easy because I had left over macaroni to use for a pasta salad later in the week and although I do prefer to make things from scratch, using the dry pancake mix was a cinch. With all that maple-y, crunchy, cheesy goodness, I couldn't tell it was from a box.
If you refer to your garage as your laboratory, or long for the days of science fair projects to explain how you blew off your eyebrows, you may be a mad scientist! Whether you are a gadget geek, a chemistry champion or an experiment egghead, the library has something to inspire, explain and delight.
Sometimes it's the simple things in life that make the most sense. Once again the good city of Brooklyn has stepped up to give the world of the music industry a blast of what it might need right about now....a bit of simplicity. Take one part hammering drums & guitar and one part shoegazer female vocals and you have the latest "Treat" from New York in the form of Sleigh Bells.
The musical hurricane known as the Sleigh Bells (with Derek Miller serving as the chaos of massive drums with screaming guitars and his band mate Alexis Kraus dwelling in the eye of it with her sweeter than sugar vocals) started dropping demos on the Internet last year and in the few months that followed they had quickly earned their way into every conversation of, "What is new in music today?" Following up the goss
It's hard to believe that Jeff Spicoli is turning 50 today! Sean Penn continues to have an amazing career, with two Academy Award wins for Best Actor and numerous critically acclaimed movies under his hat, both as an actor, writer and director!
