Last night WKAR hosted another fantastic Community Cinema event featuring the Independent Lens film "Soul Food Junkies." I'd like to thank everyone who came out and participated in a fun and interesting discussion around food and culture.
I'd particularly like to thank our panel of guests: Andrea Collier, Lorraine Weatherspoon and Laura DeLind. They each brought an interesting perspective, including history, health and community.
I don't know about you but at this time of year it seems as though our senses are stretched in every direction. Beautiful trees and cheerfully wrapped gifts share the stage with crowds at the mall and the frenzy of writing cards or standing in post office lines.
Sometimes it is easy to forget that the holidays are really the time to hold our loved ones close and share moments with them that will be remembered long after the toys under the tree have been left behind.
About a week ago I had the chance to step into Linda Hundt's kitchen at Sweetie-licious Bakery Cafe. While we taped a wonderful cooking special that premieres Saturday, December 1, at 10 a.m., I also soaked up everything I could about making a perfect pie crust, pie, gingerbread men and a coffee cake to die for!
Did you know that this week WKAR's Public Media Facebook page is hovering at nearly 2,000 friends who "like" the page? This is by far our page with the most "likes," but it certainly isn't our only one!
