Farro Salad with Herbed Hummus Dressing

[Editor's Note: I am always on the lookout for fantastic and creative grain salads—they're fantastic to take to work for lunch, and can also be the centerpiece of a satisfying, but healthy, dinner at home. I love this salad from Soup Addict, which would be exciting enough on its own, but is made even more delicious with the addition of a hummus-based dressing. I'm definitely going to make a batch of this soon! --Genie} Mediterranean Farro Salad with Hummus Dressing ...more

Best Picture Dinners: The Tree of Life

I'm going to admit it right up front: Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life is not my favorite, by far, of the nine Oscar Best Picture nominees. It's a complicated, often allegorical film, at times beautiful and poetic, at times, to my eyes, utterly weird. The movie examines the inner life of a family in Waco, Texas, and the bonds between them, whether those bonds are spiritual, tenuous, tender, or all three at the same time....more
