    Hillary Clinton's new book What Happened takes readers behind the scenes of her historic presidential campaign. Unsurprisingly, a large portion of the book focuses on policy, debate prep, campaign strategies, Russia, and (you guessed it) those damn emails. But the former secretary of state also shared her daily routine, including what she ate on the campaign trail. "It's funny how much you look forward to the next meal when you're living out of a suitcase," Clinton wrote. After spending nearly 600 days on the road, she'd know. Clinton started her day by ordering scrambled egg whites and vegetables from room...

    Shumaila Shah knows how to cook her husband's favorite dish the way one might say the Pledge of Allegiance. "Cook onions, tomatoes, garlic and ginger crushed together," she said, articulating something so familiar it didn't need words, English or Punjabi. "Salt, pepper, garam masala. Put meat in and add water to make a gravy. Cook until the meat is soft, not tough." How long? She thinks for a moment. "A half-hour; it depends on the meat," she said. "Then add the potatoes, because they take a shorter time to cook. We eat it with naan." The recipe for her aloo...

    All the Raisinets in the world aren’t enough to sugarcoat this fact: In recent months, the Hollywood box office has been a disaster. In terms of attendance, Tinseltown just wrapped up its worst summer at the box office in nearly a quarter-century. That means theaters now have to fight harder than ever to get butts in seats. “For a very long time, movie theaters were not overly focused on pleasing the consumer,” says Eric Handler, a media analyst at MKM Partners. But in recent years, he says, theater owners have wised up to a novel idea: making the theater experience...

    Gov. Scott Walker today announced WEDC is providing Gold Standard Baking Inc. with up to $575,000 in tax credits to support the Illinois company’s expansion in Kenosha County – a project expected to create 96 jobs. In addition to the 96 jobs expected to be created by Gold Standard Baking, an economic modeling study estimates the expansion could indirectly generate 75 additional jobs in the region. Those 171 new jobs could generate up to $1.6 million in state income tax revenue over a five-year period. The new 200,000-square-foot facility in Pleasant Prairie, which opened in July, is expected to operate...

    There are times I would like to make the effort of throwing dinner for friends or family and cook everything from scratch. But the labor of love just takes so long. In spite of all the inspiration from Rachael Ray, the 30-minute meal is actually more myth than fact. Thawing your food alone may take almost an hour. Then there’s the diligence of slow cooking the meat to your desired tenderness. Not to mention the many times you will have to change pots and pans, as the vegetables, which cook faster, have to be cooked much later than the meat—you...

    HIXTON, Wis. (WKBT) - Nestled in the small town of Hixton, Wisconsin, sits a one-of-a-kind farm. Superior Fresh is the first of its kind indoor Atlantic Salmon farm in the country and it's one of the largest aquaponics facilities in the world. The facility combines aquaculture and hydroponics, where waste from fish will be used to supply nutrients for plants grown in water. The 720-acre-farm uses recirculating technologies that collect water and reuse it to grow plants. That water is collected from the aquaculture systems which carry 120,000 pounds of Atlantic salmon. Nutrient-rich water from the fish is then used...

Well, that is true, but, when you look at the numbers, you will see that raising goats is more profitable and better in every matter than keeping these three. First of...

    DALLAS (AP) - Drew Demler is digging in a box of dirt in the middle of Fair Park. The Dallas Morning News reports he is harvesting potatoes - big, small, misshapen, one that even looks like a snowman - in a hotter-than-deep-fried parking lot just outside the Cotton Bowl. "I think potatoes and onions are two of the most important crops that we grow," Demler, farm manager at Big Tex Urban Farms , says as he uses his bare hands to search for the tubers. "They're hearty and prolific, and their storage life is long."(continued)
