“FROZEN 2” Sing-Along Engagement Heading to Theatres Starting Jan. 17

Fans are invited to venture “Into the Unknown” alongside Anna and Elsa when Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2” Special Sing-Along Engagement kicks off in select theatres nationwide on Jan. 17 for a limited time.

To get in the spirit of the special engagement, check out the sing-along version of the full “Some Things Never Change” sequence from Disney’s “Frozen 2” featuring the original song performed by Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad and Jonathan Groff, written by Academy Award® winners Kristen Anderson-Lopez & Robert Lopez.


Why was Elsa born with magical powers? What truths about the past await Elsa as she ventures into the unknown to the enchanted forests and dark seas beyond Arendelle? The answers are calling her but also threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she'll face a dangerous but remarkable journey. In “Frozen,” Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In “Frozen 2,” she must hope they are enough. From the Academy Award®-winning team—directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez—and featuring the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2” opened in theatres on Nov. 21, 2019, becoming the highest grossing animated movie of all time in early January.

“Frozen” won an Academy Award® for best animated feature film of the year. The film’s iconic song, “Let It Go,” with music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, also won an Oscar® for best achievement in music written for motion picture, original song.

Recipe Book Review: The Instant Pot of Diabetes Cookbook

The Instant Pot Diabetes CookbookSimple recipes for healthy home cooking.

It was a pleasure to have to opportunity to share my review on this amazing cookbook. I'm glad I was able to try out some of these healthy recipes put together by Nancy Hughes.

Inside, you’ll find nutritious, flavorful Instant Pot recipes that will easily transform into mouth-watering meals. Each recipe includes detailed instructions to walk you through every step of cooking with your Instant Pot.

  • * A table of cooking times for a variety of ingredients from grains to veggies to meats
  • * Essential kitchen equipment and ingredients to have on hand to make diabetes-friendly cooking with your Instant Pot a breeze
  • * Complete nutrition information with each recipe to make diabetes meal planning easy


I really enjoyed this book and my family loved the dishes I made that was used from this recipe book.  The images makes my mouth water. Although not too many photos, the layout of the recipes on each page are well put together and easy to follow.  Since our family don't eat a lot of meat at home, the vegetable dishes are great! Sometimes I just need some inspiration and creative ideas on how to make a simple dish. Most of the ingredients listed are easy to find and it's what I use almost every day or every week.

The pasta dishes and rice dishes are what I make most of the time. I like how Nancy put together a variety type of dishes; dishes from breakfast, entrees with meat, vegetables, pasta, appetizers, salads, sweets and desserts, as well as soup.

Here was one of the recipe I prepared: the "Freezer-Fix Chili" (from page 74 of the cookbook).
