It’s not your fault.

That’s what Dr. Terry Huang wants you to know if you’re obese. “It’s not your fault because obesity is a result of so many different factors: genetic factors, environmental factors, the way our society is constructed by policy, and all of those things contribute to all of us, by default, eating more and exercising less.” Dr. Huang is the chairman and professor of health promotion, social and behavioral health for UNMC’s College of Public Health, so he knows what he’s talking about.

Dr. Huang wants you to know something else. “It’s not your fault, first and foremost, but that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing you can do about it.”

He’s a man who is poised to...

Its time again for you to get your tickets to one of Omaha’s most fun and artsy events. The Visiting Nurses Association’s 16th Annual Art and Soup event will be held on Sunday February 24, 2013.

Think Like a Chef

Unless you’re in the mood for a mean grilled cheese, I’m not much of a cook. But working in restaurants has, fortunately, allowed me to meet some very talented ones. Recently, I experienced a six-course, dim sum-inspired feast in the home kitchen of Lot 2’s Scott Zrust. It was over this sensational dinner that I started compiling a list of guidelines to create restaurant-caliber meals at home. As it turns out, a little know-how, planning, and creativity will get you far. I asked three area professionals, who specialize in a range of cuisines, for ideas.

Be inspired.

Zrust insists he’s “never been a huge fan of cookbooks.” While they can be useful for reference, the most rewarding...

Brix at Midtown Crossing is now open.

Much like the original Brix at Village Pointe, Brix at Midtown Crossing creatively brings together a full-menu Bistro, a wine and spirits retail shop and event space. Designed by owner Dan Matuszek, he states that, “the Midtown Crossing location really is more of a ‘Bistro first, retail store second concept.’ There is a lot more emphasis on the food and highlighting the talents of who we think is one of the great young chefs in Omaha, our executive chef Erik Rickard.” He continues, “the Bistro at the Midtown Crossing location also features a larger bar area for drinks and cocktails, plus 27 different premium craft beers and Sprecher Root Beer on...

Twisted Cork: Stunning Flavors, Cozy Ambiance

Let me make your first visit to the Twisted Cork a little easier with this tip: the Tavern is to the left, and the Bistro is to the right. They’re both a part of the Twisted Cork, but they aren’t the same thing.

I hope I didn’t just confuse you.

I went to the right when I visited the Twisted Cork because I was looking for the full Bistro experience. A friend of mine had told me that this was the place to go for some really great seafood, and I managed to get my husband to accompany me by letting him know that the Twisted Cork Burger was voted the best burger in Nebraska by Food Network Magazine. Great seafood for me and a juicy burger for him; it’s the perfect date night.

Let’s...
