Chicken Strips with Ginger-Apricot Sauce

Chicken Strips with Ginger-Apricot Sauce

Thanks to Julienne Fine Foods and Celebrations in San Marino for this week’s contribution to “Mangiamo.” This dish is a particular favorite of customers with young children, because kids and parents like it equally—and it works great for a picnic, too.

POPS Does the Movies

POPS Does the Movies

What else is new, right? Still, the POPS is a very fine orchestra, and hearing movie scores sans movie is an experience worth having more than once. It’s an eclectic selection of films this time around: A Salute to Gene Kelly Gigi An American in Paris Schindler’s List The Informant! That last one in particular […]

Actress and Tony-nominated vocalist Valarie Pettiford—best known perhaps for her role as Big Dee Dee Thorne on Half & […]

Free Music Under the Stars

Free Music Under the Stars

Orchestral music is one of those things that’s never as cheap as you think it should be. Sure, it often requires dozens of performers with advanced training, expensive equipment, and other costly things, but it’s not like it’s Rock (Me Amadeus).… anyway.
