Alita is just like a typical teenage girl. She loves chocolate, breaks curfew and crushes on a bad boy with floppy hair, a leather jacket and a motorcycle. But Alita isn’t typical in other ways. For one, she can slice apart a single falling tear with her ferocious battle sword.
The disturbing tale of Frankenstein and the Creature will scare and entertain Idaho Falls audiences during two shows over the next several weeks.
What to say about an Oscar-nominated film that's more than three hours long, apparently despised by the man whose life inspired it, and has been called both a masterpiece and a manipulation? Perhaps that the film's fascinating backstory could make for another three-hour movie.
Centuries ago, focaccia began as a by-product: When bakers needed to gauge the heat of the wood-fired oven—focaccia stems from focolare and means "fireplace"—they would tear off a swatch of dough, flatten it, drizzle it with olive oil, and pop it into the hearth to bake as an edible oven the…
Question: I have three apple trees that I planted three years ago. I don’t know how to prune them. Could you give me some guidance on apple tree pruning? When is a good time to prune them?

Chicken enchiladas offer a rich and complex combination of flavors and textures, but traditional cooking methods can be tedious.

Feeding birds in winter is one of the nation's most popular wildlife-watching activities, yet many ornithologists say it's often more rewarding for people than for birds. And it might even put wild birds at risk.
Peanut blossom cookies first gained notoriety at the 1957 Pillsbury Bake-Off. They're simply a peanut butter cookie topped with a Hershey's Kiss. We started with the original recipe and made tweaks to it with the goal of achieving a more robust peanut flavor.
Chicken Florentine is a buffet-line favorite featuring chicken breast and spinach in a mild cream-and-Parmesan sauce—sometimes stuffed inside, sometimes stacked on top. All of these components are good, but this dish can often be stodgy (think old-fashioned casserole) or fussy (involving dre…
If you think oatmeal comes in a packet, think again.

NEW YORK — When the Grammys decided to extend the nominees in the top four categories from five to eight, they didn’t consider how much harder it would make our lives as credible prediction experts.
Nicole Christianson, a 26-year-old sales rep, was tired of writing big checks for tiny apartments. And she wanted to do more with her cash than stash it in a savings account.
HADERA, Israel — A giant power plant with billowing smoke may not look like the most natural habitat for sea life. But the hot water gushing from an industrial plant in Israel’s northern city of Hadera has drawn schools of sharks that are increasingly endangered by overfishing in the Mediter…
MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — The moms meet in a parking lot overlooking the little funeral home and watch mourners drifting toward the chapel doors — a familiar scene, beginning again.

Highlighting the fresh flavors of Provencal cuisine, soupe au pistou is a classic French soup composed of seasonal vegetables, creamy white beans and fragrant herbs.
A cookie in a skillet? We admit this internet phenom made us skeptical—until we tried it. Unlike making a traditional batch of cookies, this treatment doesn’t require scooping, baking and cooling multiple sheets of treats; the whole thing bakes at once in a single skillet.
