  • Some days, there’s nothing like eating a good sandwich for dinner.

    At the end of a long work day, most don’t have the energy or appetite for a big meal with all the fixings. On those days, a sandwich with something tasty on the side hits the spot.

    The best sandwiches often are the ooey-gooey, hot, cheesy, melted kind. The perfect grilled cheese can be one of the best-tasting things in the universe. Add a little bacon and you’ve got the makings of something spectacular.

  • Usually, Easter leftovers are hard-cooked eggs with names written on them or decorated by children.

    There also might be eggs from egg hunts. Check those out carefully. If there are any cracks where dirt and germs could get into the egg, discard them.

    But for those of you who had baked ham, you might have so much that you get tired of ham sandwiches.

    The recipes I have for you today use leftover ham.

  • Glen MacPherson makes a conscious effort to use the word “I” as little as possible.

    The Elizabethtown resident has a very specific view about his volunteerism with organizations such as Hardin County Habitat for Humanity and Helping Hand of Hope.

    “It’s not about me,” MacPherson said. “It’s about doing God’s work.”

  • Elizabethtown author Russell Lunsford has published his second children’s book.

    “Benjamin Nathan Tuggle: Adventurer, General George Washington and the American Revolution” was published in March and is Lunsford’s second children’s book featuring the title character. Benjamin Nathan Tuggle is a 12-year-old who finds he can time travel.

    Lunsford’s first children’s book was “Benjamin Nathan Tuggle: Adventurer, Daniel Boone and the Settlement of Boonesborough, Kentucky.”

  • It has been about six months since we welcomed a Pomeranian puppy into our home and Zorro has kept things interesting.

    Not only has he been dubbed Zorro the Destroyer, because of his penchant for turning everything into personal chew toys, but he has become an active sparring partner for Tybalt.

    Maybe one of the most noticeable contributions Zorro has made to the household is providing a springboard for new language.

    Let me explain.

  • For Elizabethtown native Aimee Boyd, a festive atmosphere is part of her job.

    As vice president of communications for the Kentucky Derby Festival, Boyd helps coordinate and promote events leading up to what has been called the most exciting two minutes in sports.

    “A few folks might think we only work a few weeks out of the year, but we work year round,” she said.

  • We’re smack dab in the middle of Holy Week, the time between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday.

    It’s a bittersweet week in the Christian faith tradition, moving from the euphoria of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem to the solemn Last Supper, the agony of Jesus’ crucifixion, and ultimately the joy of his resurrection.

  • When you think of an Easter meal, a few constants come to mind such as ham, deviled eggs and an assortment of traditional side dishes.

    When I think of Easter dinner, some sort of coconut dessert is usually a must. A beautiful light and fluffy coconut cake with jelly beans on top is a favorite and coconut pie is absolutely delicious.

    Honestly, I only recently discovered a taste for coconut. As my tastes have changed with age, it’s become a  favorite flavor. And, I love the smell of coconut.

  • Here we are, five days from Easter Sunday. Most people use this as an occasion for a family dinner. Baked ham seems to be the favorite for most, but turkey, fried chicken, pulled pork or a chuck roast are close seconds.
