Many big arena concerts can feel a bit disconnected, like we're seeing the same show as concert-goers in fifty other cities. Elton John and Leon Russell's show Friday night at the BOK Center was not one of those shows, as was evident from the beginning, when Sir Elton himself walked onstage …

Most people come to expect some sort of brown-sugar-laden, marshmallow-topped sweet potato confection at the Thanksgiving table. I prefer to save my sweets until dessert! I make these simple roasted potatoes throughout the year. They are delicious topped with a dollop of sour cream, but you …

For those that have heard about something far off on the southern horizon called "South Tulsa," but only heard stories, like Kevin Costner hearing about land in "Waterworld," here is a great reason to venture forth into the great expanse.

Rolling Stone calls this tour Leon Russell's "resurrection." But those who know music know that without Leon, there probably wouldn’t be an Elton John. Or at least not an Elton whose catalogue you would recognize. Sure, Elton has pop sensibilities – and an eye for sunglasses – but Leon’s arr…

Paired with a tangy Bloody Mary, this is my traditional Thanksgiving Day brunch. Using farm-fresh eggs yields a bright yellow filling, as well as a delicious flavor. These eggs are the perfect snack for a picnic, brunch or to merely grab while passing by the refrigerator.

This sweet, tart and slightly spicy recipe was first published in Martha Stewart Living magazine back in 1995, and I have made it virtually every year – with a few unsuccessful forays into cranberry gelatin in between. Delicious with dinner, it is the perfect topping for a turkey, mayo and w…

Our family traditionally eats Thanksgiving "dinner" at 6 or 7 p.m. Thus, we need snacks to sustain us through the parade, football games and merely the smell of roasting turkey. Inspired by the delicious and addicting bar nuts served at New York’s Union Square Café, these will definitely bec…

Yes, I have already made out my Thanksgiving dinner shopping list. I am definitely not a "type A" person. I’m simply trying to get as much as I can done ahead of time. I have done Thanksgiving dinner so many times I could make the shopping list in my head, but this is the perfect time for yo…

This is my favorite month of the year, and not just because both my favorite day (Thanksgiving!) and my birthday occur in November. The weather has finally turned fall-like, if not a bit chilly, the Sooners and Cowboys meet up for Bedlam, and the food we cook gets really hearty – simple stew…

The legendary Biz Markie will make the noises that made him famous on Friday night, Nov. 5, at the Crystal Pistol (417 N. Main). From beat-boxing to rapping (as if there is a huge chasm betwixt the two), "The Clown Prince God of the Southwest Atlantic" (real nickname) is a legend.

Favorite meal to cook at home: I don’t typically cook at home, but when I do, it’s always breakfast. So my favorite meal at home would be a turkey sausage and cheese omelet, cantaloupe, coffee and V8. Not too exciting, but it makes me happy and gets me going in the morning.

Halloween is but a scream away and the most paradoxical holiday for both adults and children. "Don’t be scared," we parents advise, "but watch out for monsters." Another creepy paradox is the tourism market for dead writers’ houses. Anne Trubeck is releasing her book on the subject this mont…
