That is, unless the glaze drips off the football-shaped bird, as so many do, creating a sticky, scorched mess on your pan.

NEW YORK (AP) — The label “date movie” hasn’t traditionally been applied much to documentaries but filmmakers Betsy West and Julie Cohen have twice now made non-fiction films of trailblazing female icons that also happen to be portraits of loving, supportive marriages.
