Review: ‘Beautiful – The Carole King Musical’ has great tunes and that loving feeling the audience craves


Grammy® Award Winner for “Best Musical Theater Album” of 2015
The national touring production of Beautiful - The Carole King Musicalopened Tuesday  at The Fox Theatre. Before she was Carole King, superstar—she was Carole King, teenage songwriter.  Her music would become the soundtrack to a generation. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.
BEAUTIFUL tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than BEAUTIFUL music, she wrote the soundtra…

Global Youth Safety "Teen Driving Risk Awareness Month"

As a parent of two growing teens I dread the day one of them asks me to let them get a drivers permit. Is not that I don't want them to drive or be independent, is just that I don't think they are aware of how many things can go wrong while driving. Teaching teens how to drive is a big step and can be nerve-wracking, specially for over protective moms like me. Encouraging teens to adopt safety rules such as use of seatbelts, passengers, curfews and dealing with distractions like cellphones is crucial if you want to keep them safe on the road.




For Global Youth Safety Month The Bluebird Patch has partnered with DriveitHOME™, an initiative of the National Safety Council, designed by and for parents of newly licensed teen drivers. DriveitHOME™ offers free resources parents can use to help their teen build experience to become safer drivers. It also is a place parents can share their ideas for keeping teens safe behind the wheel. Recent research has shown that parent management of t…

Afternoon Delights: Cafe con Leche and Raspberry Madeleines #SienteGlade

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SienteGlade #CollectiveBias



Madeleines are a sweet buttery french pastry or “tea-cookie” that pairs spectacularly with your “cafecito” (coffee). These precious tender little cake-like cookies are baked until golden crisp, in special molds, that give them a delicate shell shape. They are thick in size, but light, soft, and smooth in texture similar to a sponge cake, and are loaded with a rich decadent buttery flavor. Madeleines are easy to make, and once you get the hang of it, you will be obsessed making them for parties or giving them away as gifts. They literally take 15 minutes to bake!



INGREDIENTS 4 large eggs, lightly beaten in a 2-cup measure 1¼ cups sugar 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus 2 Tbs. for molds 1 cup of cake flour 2½ sticks unsalted butter, cut into 12 pieces 1 cup of raspberries A pinch of salt The zest of one lemon A few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice A few dr…
