Infamously In Love

According to IMDb, when a movie production arrives in a small town, a local man and a famous actress find romance. Will the local gossips allow the two time together, or will they keep the lovebirds away from each other?

Infamously in Love

I started Wherever I Look back in 2011 and have aimed to be that friend who loves watching various forms of media and talking about it. So, from bias, strong opinions, and a perspective you may not have thought about, you'll find that in our reviews.

The FDA infamously sanctioned the Nashoba Brook Bakery for listing "love" as an ingredient in its granola, but our writer went on a quest to get that recipe. What she found was a treasure of another sort, one of value for those with eating disorders. Courtesy of Nashoba Brook Bakery hide caption

In October, a bakery in Concord, Mass., made national headlines when the FDA sanctioned it for putting love in its granola. But since then, all I've really wanted was to share that recipe with my eating-disordered clients.

Why, you might ask, would any therapist encourage anyone with eating issues to bake the high-calorie breakfast treat? Because if I could share the love the FDA ordered removed, I could send home an essential message: Love not only makes food taste better, loving yourself helps you feel better, look better and eat better.

Selfishly, I also wanted the recipe for when fall's radiant landscape fades to frozen still life. On warm, sunny days here in Concord, I love strolling to Nashoba Brook Bakery for a cup of strawberry yogurt sprinkled with its now-infamous "love granola." But when dark, weepy skies glaze the sidewalks ice-gray, I'd rather practice what I preach by firing up the oven and making my own batch of this simple, not-too-sweet, perfectly crunchy granola.

So I went on a quest for the love-fortified recipe, encountering many obstacles and intriguing characters before I stumbled upon a real treasure. No surprise, the treasure was somewhat different than expected, but something far more valuable, especially to eating-disordered clients.

"When I asked Karen Collins, the original pastry chef responsible for all our recipes, 'What makes the granola so good?' She said, 'Well, I put love in it,' " remembers Gates. The laugh lines around Gates' hazel eyes crinkle as he recalls that sweet exchange with Collins, one of the bakery's founders and the ex-wife of Nashoba's current co-owner, Stuart Witt.

Bittersweet backstory short: A few years later, when Collins leaves Witt and the Nashoba family, she leaves her recipes with the bakery. Over the next 13 years, the industrious pastry chef creates all new recipes for a bakery business of her own, and all but forgets her old granola recipe. Until the love in her honey-sweetened "love-child" makes headline news and the memory comes rushing back.

During the five or six years she baked for Nashoba, Collins created many a granola recipe, all with "love" in them. But she thinks the signature recipe must have morphed over time or got lost in translation with the comings and goings of bakers.

"I put a lot of love into everything I make," says the mother of three, who makes her living from cookies, cupcakes and other handmade desserts. "The thing I love about making granola is you mix it with your hands. You're not relying on any other piece of equipment other than measuring cups, tablespoons and a bowl."

And yet, when she heard about Nashoba's granola woes, this baker blamed herself. "The first thing I said is, 'OMG, I think that's my fault. I used to type love on the ingredient label. But they can't still be making the same granola.' "

Treatment was essential, but love proved to be the most important ingredient in Collins' successful recovery. Initially, it was love for her children and acceptance of her parental responsibility, and, over time, love for herself, too.

Why shouldn't there be a fizzy, comedic take on the naughty adventures of the Park Avenue gadabout as he fashioned In Cold Blood, coming after Richard Brooks' spare black-and-white 1967 of the "nonfiction novel," and Bennett Miller's somber character study in "Capote" (2005) in which the artist creates a work of art that demands the death of the thing he loves -- not just Perry Smith, the murderer with whom Capote was allegedly smitten, but his own creative self? Why not a movie that concentrates on the contrast between the writer's frivolous party-boy side and the brutal murders in Kansas, the exotic and colorful tropical specimin who becomes a fish-out-of water when he jumps from his luxurious highrise swan pond into the Midwestern plains?

A video clip of Republican Representative Barry Loudermilk saying that he loves to give tours of the U.S. Capitol has resurfaced online after the House Select Committee investigating the Capitol riot asked Loudermilk to speak with them.

"As a historian, I love this building. I love the Capitol. I love spending time in this Chamber just thinking about the history of our nation and the historical moments that have taken place in here," the congressman said.

"It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which 'hates people' and is 'infamously anti-LGBTQ,'" Pratt, 39, wrote in an Instagram story post on Monday. "Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone."

"Despite what the Bible says about divorce my church community was there for me every step of the way, never judging, just gracefully accompanying me on my walk," Pratt said in the Instagram story. "They helped me tremendously offering love and support. It is what I have seen them do for others on countless occasions regardless of sexual orientation, race or gender."

This week marks the 10-year anniversary of a very important event in Minnesota Vikings history (and I say that half-joking and half-serious). It was on Oct. 6, 2005, that several Vikings players embarked on a Lake Minnetonka journey that is now infamously known as the Love Boat Scandal.

After returning from his South American tryst, Sanford gave an infamously honest press conference wherein he admitted the infidelity and proclaimed his love for Chapur. The couple announced their engagement in August 2012. 041b061a72
