Gadgets & Gizmos: Extra-Wide Convection Oven

posted: 12/17/2014 2:02 a.m. Discuss

When my oven stopped working early last year and I started using my small toaster oven in its place, I quickly learned a toaster oven can handle a lot of what I cook in a conventional oven. It is fine for a six-muffin pan or an 8-by-8 cake pan, but forget baking bigger things.

Many of us are aware that Little Rock and, to some extent, North Little Rock are close to running over with restaurants, and it seems like more and more are opening every week.

Practically Active: Fasting is tricky, even inadvisable, for diabetics

posted: 10/06/2014 2 a.m. Discuss

When I was first diagnosed with diabetes, my former doctor told me about Medifast. Online advertisements say it's doctor-approved, but I wonder what group of doctors they actually polled?

PRACTICALLY ACTIVE: Examine those perfect bodies in ads, realistically

posted: 09/22/2014 2:23 a.m. Discuss

When it comes to rap music there is a definite type of style -- an edgy vibe, gold chains and a baseball cap with a flat bill cocked jauntily to the side. When it comes to country music the standard tends to be boots, jeans and cowboy hats.

Practically Active: Reaching out for help with painful hands and feet

posted: 08/25/2014 2:26 a.m. Discuss

In July I received an email from a reader in Fayetteville. She told me she had a condition called Raynaud's and asked, "How do you get regular exercise when the bottoms of your feet hurt?"
