"Chef's Table", an orginal Netflix documentary series, drives fine cuisine into artistic distinction. Of course, in the end, it is just food. But a series that conveys the ability of a chef to make food something more, to expand the values, the intention, and the stories that can accompany a meal,...

Every year, watching Christmas movies is one of my favorite pass times to do around the holidays. I usually grab some friends and family and, of course, some hot chocolate, and watch the classics.

Very few shows really leave me dumbstruck, "Stranger Things" being one example. But when I decided to begin "Black Mirror" after seeing the Netflix preview for it so many times, it was the best decision. "Black Mirror" has three seasons; the first two seasons with three episodes and the third final...

I love almost every kind of fruit: pineapple, strawberries, grapes, apples, mangos. All of these fruits are delicious but underwhelming compared to the small but mighty clementine. Clementines are delightful in season, but only in season. The size is perfect for a small snack, but I still choose to...

Spunky Dunkers is home to some of the best donuts I've ever tasted. Located in Palatine, this family owned business has been hand-making each donut for more than 100 years.

"Birds in the sky, you know how I feel"... not very good, quite disappointed actually. Michael Buble's new album "Nobody But Me" features his infamous big band sound and romantic vocals, but in it's entirety, is just awkward. Full of jazzy ballads with a powerful orchestra backing him up, Buble continues...
