One for the moneyOne for the Money (2012) Poster

2012  PG-13 1:31 stars Katherine Heigel  as Stephanie Plum  Jason O’Mara as Joe Morelli,  Daniel Sunjata as ‘Ranger’  Sherri Shepherd as Lula and Debbie Reynolds as Grandma Mazur.  

Based on the best selling author Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series sadly whoever did the casting should have been fired. I think no matter what when it comes to books to movies, the author should always have say in casting (not sure if Janet did but I’ll see if she’ll answer a couple questions I have about it)  I think this would be better as a Tv series after all I believe it was Ranger who told Stephanie her life should be a sitcom! I full on agreed when I read that! Now I don’t know if this actually came out in the movies or not (if not I’m guessing it was a hallmark movie or Lifetime…

Into the Woods

2014 PG  2 hour Musical from Disney Studios

stars Emily Blunt, James Cordon, Meryl Streep as the witch, Chris Pine as Prince Charming , Anna Kendrick  and Johnny Depp & the ‘big’ bad wolf.

Instead of our usual fairytales, we have a mash-up story woven together into an annoying Musical.  OH Gods are they only going to sing.  My favorite Musical is Grease I love it,  but at least it’s not a constant headache through the whole movie; it has parts that are spoken and others  (pivotal parts?) where maybe you’d expect there to be a musical number.  Into the woods however I don’t recall one spoken part! and even if there were it still sounds like it’s a sing songy voice. It’s a never ending headache watching this movie!

Oh my gods!! Johnny Depp as the Big Bad wolf is more creepy than bad. I did love the sound of the song he did…

Yuca (Cassava) Pancakes

 

Prep: 10m

This tropical side dish mixes, cooks and tastes a lot like potato pancakes, but made with that starchy tropical vegetable called yuca (pronounced voo-ca). Looks like a brown club. Use a sharp paring knife or a really high quality, fixed blade peeler to peel it (a Wusthof-Trident peeler makes short work of it). The original called for 3 tablespoons sugar, but we like our cakes salty and greasy, so we omitted the sugar. The recipe is from False Tongues and Sunday Bread, a Guatemalan and Mayan Cookbook by Copeland Marks.

  •    3 tablespoons sugar (optional)
  •    1 teaspoon salt
  •   2 lbs yucca root, peeled, grated (cassava)
  •    1/2 cup grated mild cheese or ricotta cheese or farmer cheese
  •    1 egg
  •   1/4 cup corn oil or vegetable oil
  •   2 tablespoons butter
  •    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients except oil.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Spoon in a couple of tablespoons batter and smooth into a 3-inch to 4-inch cake about 1/2-inch thick.
  3. Brown on both sides, then drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
