  • Family costumes: Top 10 looks

    Family costumes: Top 10 looks

    Stores are filled with costumes as Halloween approaches, but many families take advantage of this holiday to put forth a group effort, with amazing results. I’ve seen re-creations of “Alice in Wonderland” complete with Alice, Mad Hatter, Red Queen, White Rabbit and cards. I’ve seen “Jurassic Park”...

    Wondering why you are seeing teal-colored pumpkins in Halloween store displays this year? The Teal Pumpkin Project, started in 2014, promotes awareness of food allergies and inclusion for all trick-or-treaters on Halloween. Many Halloween candies have nuts or are made in a facility that also processes...

  • South Florida's iconic Knaus Berry Farm and its cinnamon rolls are back

    South Florida's iconic Knaus Berry Farm and its cinnamon rolls are back

    The wait is almost over. In what’s become a popular fall tradition in South Florida, Knaus Berry Farm in Homestead is set to reopen Oct. 30.

  • Get spooky in the kitchen with haunted house class

    Get spooky in the kitchen with haunted house class

    The shows on TV make cooking look easy. But it isn’t. So how can parents who aren’t great in the kitchen raise young master chefs? A number of companies in South Florida offer kid-and-me cooking classes, including Publix Apron Cooking Schools in Plantation and Boca Raton, which offered holiday...

  • 'Halloween' review: It takes a granny (Jamie Lee Curtis) to get tough on Michael Myers

    'Halloween' review: It takes a granny (Jamie Lee Curtis) to get tough on Michael Myers

    At this point in 2018, a movie featuring three generations of victimized women squaring off against a predatory male is destined to find an audience. Nostalgia and catharsis; splatter and sisterhood. The new “Halloween” couldn’t miss even if it were set on Arbor Day. It’s a fairly engrossing bit...

  • 'Free Solo' review: Scaling the sheer face of lunacy

    'Free Solo' review: Scaling the sheer face of lunacy

    “Free Solo” will be widely available soon enough, streaming on student ID-sized screens or laptops or whatever else you own. I can’t think of a worse documentary to confine to a hand-held device, however. It’s like the old Albert Brooks tweet from 2013: “Just watched ‘Gravity’ on an iPhone. Not...

    'Beautiful Boy' review: Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet ground a pair of addiction memoirs

    The words cannot be easy to hear as an addict, or as the parent of an addict. “Relapse is a part of recovery,” a clinic worker says to a distraught David Sheff, played by Steve Carell in the new film “Beautiful Boy.” David’s bright, unraveling son, Nic, played by Timothee Chalamet, has begun to...

  • 'First Man' review: Ryan Gosling trades la la land for wishing on the moon

    'First Man' review: Ryan Gosling trades la la land for wishing on the moon

    There’s enough going on in director Damien Chazelle’s tense, distinctive Neil Armstrong biopic, “First Man,” to leave the climactic, inspired Apollo 11 moon landing sequence aside for a few paragraphs. So hang in there, please, and we’ll get to the flag. “First Man” comes from the James R. Hansen...
