Instead of her usual, sweet chocolate-eyed stare, my boxer baby looked strange. Her left eye was red, her third eyelid closing like an angry curtain. I rushed her to the vet.
In one weekend, The Stars Jeneé Osterheldt checked out the late-night drinks at Drunken Worm, 1405 W. 39th St., the light lunch at iPho Tower, 3623 Broadway, and the desserts at Baked in Kansas City, 706 Westport Road, and didnt break the bank.
When it comes to searching out berry dessert recipes, quick and easy is a mantra repeated across Google and Pinterest. Bonus: These simple, eye-catching desserts also tend to be crowd-pleasing.
The French tartine is a savvy sandwich standby: a slice of buttered bread topped with whatever you have on hand. That could be jams, meats or cheeses. Even better: grilled veggies. The Stars Grilled Vegetable Tartine takes inspiration from the open-faced tartine once served on the lunch menu at the Genessee Royale Bistro in the West Bottoms.
After this winter's polar vortex, it's hard to believe spring is here to stay. But the buds and daffodils do not lie. We invite you to share your photos of springtime in Kansas and Missouri for a future photo essay feature in Star Magazine.

It really wasnt that hard, because the spring holiday is pretty much all about pastels, including variations of orchid, lavender and lilac.
Pope Francis, marking Palm Sunday in a packed St. Peter's Square, ignored his prepared homily and spoke entirely off-the-cuff in a remarkable departure from practice. Later, he continued to stray from the script by hopping off his popemobile to pose for "selfies" with young people and also sipping tea passed to him from the crowd.
Pope Francis said Friday he took personal responsibility for the "evil" of priests who raped and molested children, asking forgiveness from victims and saying the church must be even bolder in its efforts to protect the young. It was the first time a pope has taken personal responsibility for the sex crimes of his priests and begged forgiveness.
DEAR ABBY: I have been in a long-distance relationship with Victor for several years. Recently I began to suspect he was cheating. What raised my suspicion was that I suddenly couldnt reach him on the weekends. Usually we would Skype: Sunday night for me, Monday morning for him.
DEAR MISS MANNERS: What is a kind and yet firm comment that I can say to the person in line after me at the cash register who invariably comes and stands next to my elbow while Im using my credit/debit card?
