  • The Italian Way: Love, Laughter and Lucci

    It must have been a strange year for Italian-Americans. First, a show called Jersey Shore transformed a bundle of self-proclaimed guidos and guidettes from a punch line into a serious pop culture phenomenon, all the while managing to offend people around the world. Then a string of other shows (Jerseylicious, Jersey Couture, Cake Boss) arrived hoping to capitalize on the distinct mannerisms of this same geographic subset by riding in their leopard-print wake.

    Just because they may be your neighbors, Olympians in bright-colored lycra racing around on the snow are an intimidating bunch. The skate ski crowd is almost neck and neck with the road bikers for having the most homogenous matching outfits and questionable-sponsorship wear.

  • Pho at Home: Recipe from a reader

    Judging by the amount of comments we received on our blog on Bend's newest pho restaurant, Pho Viet, it seems that I am not the only pho-obsessed person in Central Oregon.
