COOKING WITH SIMON: Warm up with a savory beef, mushroom pie
We all love our sweet pies filled with fruit and cream filling, but there’s a lot to be said for savory pies, too. And usually the best savory pies are personal size, and completely wrapped in a pastry you can hold onto.

MOVIE REVIEW: Prisoners — dark and disturbing thriller
Most people go to the movies to be entertained. Most films are at least intended to be entertaining. But some have other goals. Roman Polanski’s 1965 film “Repulsion” was designed to be shocking. Michael Haneke’s “Funny Games” was intended to be offensive. “Prisoners,” the current release by Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve is calculated to disturb the audience. On that note, it is extremely successful.

COOKING WITH SIMON: Scary Fruit is a Sweet Delight
Remember that scary movie from the 1980s where the little girl is staring in to a blank television scream and then turns to her mother and says, “They’re here.” We get a lot of blank stares from kids these days, but their staring at phones and IPods, not televisions.
I am talking about the movie “Poltergeist” and no this recipe is not about ghosts. It’s about a scary fruit that some people are afraid to even and aren’t really sure how to eat.
