Film: Why you must binge watch the Cinemax series “The Knick” now!

By October 10, 2015 Cinema

“The Knick” is an edgy modern take on a medical drama set in New York City in the 1900’s

I didn’t really want to watch The Knick. My wife and I are serial Netflix series binge-watchers (addicts if you will). We find ourselves watching anything that receives critic accolades and we can get our hands on.

I’m not huge fans of period pieces (let alone medical drama’s) but the show has received critic mentions so I thought it would be (at least) worth giving it the “let’s watch the first episode” try.

By October 2, 2015 Food & Health

This is an oldie but goodie. I had shared this recipe on my other site Urbanbushbabes.com a few years ago, but decided to share it again for anyone who might have missed it. It’s my favorite soup/stew because it’s so flavorful and filling. It’s a Jamaican dish called Ital Soup (or stew). Here’s a little background on why it’s called Ital. The word “ital” is derived from the word vital and is similar to the concept of kosher. Specifically, ital food should be vegetarian, unprocessed, and from the earth.
