Mark T. Carboni's culinary philosophy emphasizes flavorful, internationally inspired cuisine that can be re-created at home with relative ease. His recipes avoid using obscure ingredients, time-intensive preparations, or kitchen equipment that can only be acquired through NASA. His cookbook’s familiar gustatory staples include pan-seared pork chops, spicy pumpkin soup, and chicken satay. Carbo also dispenses practical wisdom during themed, hands-on classes and makes regular appearances on WAJI Majic 95.1, where he leads cooking demonstrations with the Majic in the Morning team.

Welcoming a new child. Graduating from high school. Walking down the isle. Husband and wife Eric and Lynda Kelley harness more than 10 years of photography expertise as they capture these lifetime events. Their eye-level and high-angle shots capture posed subjects in color and black and white, highlighting the joy of a toddler as he plays with toys against a studio backdrop, or the bliss of an expectant couple silhouetted against an orange sunset.
At weddings, the duo take pictures from the moment the bride and groom leave for the aisle all the way to the reception, never stopping until newlyweds are satisfied with the coverage or everybody realizes the maid of honor has eloped with the cake. Afterward, Eric and Lynda grant couples full printing rights, assemble every picture onto a disc, and host wedding day images in an online gallery for 270 days.
