I woke up this morning thinking about – and even smelling … OK, not really – chicken sandwiches because the Twitter-verse has run a-fowl – get it? – over the Great Chicken Sandwich Feud. The sources of my chicken sandwich cravings … I mean thoughts … on this Hump Day morning: Mashable and CNN.

If you visit one of the three new De Leon’s Taco & Bar locations in Spokane, you can eat a Holy Taco and sip one of more than 50 types of tequila while watching a Zags game on one of several large-screen televisions.
Like an 18th century sailor mapping out a series of Caribbean islands on a rum-running escapade, vegans and vegetarians will often ping-pong around a city bouncing from store to store in search of their preferred plant-based fix. A true first world problem.

“Ready or Not” is “The Most Dangerous Game” with notes of “Rosemary’s Baby” and the sassy, snarky ’tude of “Heathers.” Grace is Veronica in a wedding dress: a street-smart and sarcastic smoker who has to outwit, outplay and outlast a bunch of privileged buffoons obsessed with status.
The 25th James Bond movie has a title: “No Time to Die.” Producers announced the moniker Tuesday for the film that has long been referred to simply as “Bond 25.”

One of the biggest revelations to emerge from the Pacific Northwest in the past decade is just how well it grows grape varieties native to the Rhône Valley, a region of southern France that is the source of some of the world’s top wines.
People are very resourceful, and the kitchen is one of the places where the most clever among us can shine. Kitchen equipment can be more expensive – and less durable – than similar tools designed for elsewhere, so it’s especially satisfying when you come up with a smart, practical way to use something you already have, or at least something that won’t cost you as much. Here are eight of our favorite uses for non-culinary items.
It’s easy to think of tomato sauce at two ends of the spectrum: Directly out of the jar or cooked for hours on the stove top. I’m pleased to report that there’s a happy medium that gets you a flavorful sauce in less than 1 hour – and with very little work.
If you are looking for me in the summertime, chances are you’ll find me, at some point, on the beach in Montauk, Long Island, as close to the crashing waves as possible. If I am not in the water or on the white, sandy beach, I may have sauntered two blocks into town to grab a bite from Joni’s Kitchen, a hip little cafe with a relaxed surfer attitude and a chalkboard full of healthy menu items. One of my go-tos there is the aptly named White Sands Smoothie, a frosty milkshake-like, nourishing treat with a pale palette of milk and banana made “sandy” from being blended with coconut, almonds and a fragrant sprinkle of nutmeg. This recipe is my version of it, so I could bring those beachy vibes home to enjoy even after the school year starts up again.
Of all the cooking cultures that have put their own spin on schnitzel, this Israeli-inspired riff might be my favorite. No wonder; it comes from a new cookbook called “Sababa” (Avery), whose Tel Aviv-based author, Adeena Sussman, is a whiz at developing and adapting recipes with a modern sensibility. Like kosher cooks in Israel have done for decades, she pan-fries the pounded-thin cutlets in oil instead of butter, and uses chicken instead of the classic Austrian call for veal. What makes Sussman’s recipe particularly appealing for a crunch fan like me is its seasoned blend of panko and roasted sesame seeds. The coating stays in place, thanks to a brief respite before the chicken hits the pan, and it reaches a golden brown apogee every time, right on cue, graced with the nutty goodness that sesame delivers.
