Movie Reviews: Collide, Rock Dog, Get Out, Bitter Harvest, The Red Turtle

Ahead of this weekend's Academy Awards, one more Oscar-nominated animated feature comes to town, along with an odd assortment of multiplex offerings for a traditional box-office dead zone.

World-premiere play explores faith based on personal experience

Monday Meal: Easy Pork Carnitas

I really love carnitas - the Mexican meat dish of pork cooked in orange juice and other ingredients, served usually with tortillas or as tacos and burritos.  Carnitas are especially popular in the Mexican state of Michoacan.

February Gallery Stroll: Aleta Boyce

A look at the mixed-media exhibition currently on display at Art Access
An unusually warm February brought out people in droves who didn't mind walking around in the mild rain to see what was on display for this month's Salt Lake Gallery Stroll.
