Mora Italian

The booming, half-mile stretch of eateries is about to gain its most notable addition yet with the confirmed Feb. 3 opening of Mora Italian by acclaimed chef, restaurateur, cookbook author and judge on Food Network's highly rated "Chopped," Scott Conant.

Conant, who operates restaurants in Las Vegas, Miami and New York, is easily one of the country's most talked-about and admired Italian chefs, and he fell in love with Phoenix after spending time in the sprawling Southwestern capital. He was immediately captivated by the region's burgeoning restaurant scene and everlasting sunshine, which together created an ideal setting for his vision of a lively, approachable Italian eatery.

Dave Owens, The Garden Guy shows us how to prepare soil using sugar, corn meal, coffee grounds and compost

"Compost is what you get when organic material breaks down and decomposes in an enclosed space. Within that space, moisture is held in to help the process. Nitrogen and more than a dozen essential elements pack it full of nutrients and micronutrients. It provides soil with a kick in the pants to get micro biotic activity going. That in turn makes the soil more hospitable to plants, helping it to provide roots with more food, like iron. This is one of the great benefits of organic additives."

Top Golf Movies

#1 Caddyshack 
The Jack Nicklaus of golf movies! Bill Murray, as greenkeeper Carl Spackler, improvised all of his lines. In fact, a lot of the movie was improvised. Director Harold Ramis basically put together a cast of the funniest people of the day and let them do what they do best -- be funny. Hard to top Caddyshac, It's perfect. It can't be topped, proven by the horrible sequel. 

#2 Tin Cup
Kevin Costner is a mix of John Daly and Phil Mickelson go for broke, always trying to pull of the unlikely shot. Lots of cameos in this including Peter Kostis and Mickelson. Cheech is the caddie Romeo, best "Romeo" in a drama since Romeo and Juliet. 

#3 Happy Gilmore
Who doesn't love a Bob Barker fight scene? Even decades later, some tour players use the famous Happy Gilmore swing when messing around or in pro ams. Adam Sandler at his best.

 #4 The Greatest Game Ever Played
Shia Labeouf plays Francis Ouimet, the first amateur golfer to win the U.S Open in 1913 in Brookline, Massachusetts, a place where he started out as a caddy. An inspiring movie where golf was pretty much a game for the wealthy. Ouimet was a working class kid who defied the odds. (considered the "father of Amateur Golf" before the rise of Bobby Jones.

 #5 Legend of Bagger Vance
It didn't do great at the box office, but it showed the importance of having a great caddie. Matt Damon is Rannuply Junuh, a promising golfer who's lost his love of the game. Enter Bagger Vance, played by Will Smith who becomes his swing coach, mental coach and a friend helps him overcome his demons. Directed by Robert Redford.

Super Bowl commercials already building social media buzz

We're just days away from the Falcons taking the field against the Patriots, but as usual, a lot of buzz on social media, surrounds the commercials. We talk to a local advertising expert about some of the hottest ads you'll see during the Big Game. Snickers will try to lure audiences with a first ever live commercial, while other brands opt for humor and romance. Will these tactics work on today's audience? And are these efforts in vain, as many people can simply watch the new Super Bowl ads online?
