The Eureka Springs Indie Film Festival, formerly called the Eureka Springs Winter Film Festival, is back and gearing up for what promises to be a great festival January 23rd through the 25th at the City Auditorium.
Film festivals are a great place to see movies before their general release, directors and actors before they are discovered, and to see films that you might never see anywhere else. Hobnobbing with people in the industry can be a real treat, too – or just other film enthusiasts.
The Eureka Springs Indie Film Festival was started to celebrate the art of film-making, to promote the work of independent filmmakers, and to encourage would-be independent filmmakers.

Oh, the winter holiday season: that wonderful time of the year when we don warm, colorful clothing, gather friends and family nearby and, under the twinkling of multicolored lights and bright, cheery decorations, we … stuff our faces with sweets!
In honor of this fine, holiday tradition, we are proud to announce the sixth annual return of the Eureka Springs Sweet Treats Cookie Tour.
So, what’s a cookie tour, exactly?

Just a hop skip and a jump away from Eureka Springs (or approximately twenty minutes, if you want to split hairs) is Cosmic Cavern, one of the top ten show-caves in the US.
Why is Cosmic Cavern one of the top ten show-caves in the US? A lot of reasons.

The War Eagle Mill Fall Arts and Crafts Fair isn’t just any arts and crafts fair, it’s THE Arkansas craft fair of the year.
Started in 1954, the aim of the fair has remained constant: to showcase the arts and crafts of the Ozarks and keep the unique and traditional crafts and art forms of the area from extinction. Since that first fair, attendance has increased to an estimated 130,000 or more people each year with sales exceeding $1 million.

This weekend I was presented the challenge of making cinnamon pancakes with no gluten, no milk and no eggs for a guest at our bed and breakfast who required a gluten free and lactose free diet. This was a great opportunity for me to try modifying one of my favorite pancake recipes to see how it would work and I wanted to pass it along to anyone who might want to try it.
