Today's Features

  • When Dr. John Cole, a neurosurgeon, was featured in a column last year, and it was the first time I had ever heard of heirloom tomatoes. At the time, he was traveling to Louisville to Fresh Market to buy that type of tomatoes, which come in a variety of colors.

    An heirloom tomato is a variety that has been passed from gardener to gardener. Heirlooms come from seeds and are easy to share.

    Heirloom varieties’ greatest quality is their old-time flavor and there’s a wide vareity of tastes.

  • With gardens continuing to come in, fresh vegetables are ready for the eating. Squash, zucchini, corn and tomatoes fresh off the vine are just a few of the delicacies hitting dinner tables fresh from the garden.

    There’s nothing better than using fresh tomatoes on a BLT sandwich served with butter-coated corn on the cob from the garden. It’s like your mouth waters for it while patiently waiting for the tomatoes to grow.

  • An Elizabethtown woman with a zeal for baking earned several nods at the Kentucky State Fair including a blue ribbon in the category “Your Favorite Cake.”

    Linda Burgess’ Chocolate Raspberry Cake comes from a recipe she worked out, trying to mimic the taste of a candy she loved as a child, she said.

    One of seven children, Burgess has been a cook since her mother showed her the kitchen ropes at an early age.

  • On this day last year, I took my dad out to lunch for his birthday. He had steak, as usual. I didn’t know then that would be the last time I would have the chance to take my daddy to lunch.

    I’ve spent the last year flooded with memoires of my father and tears from missing him.

    Some weeks writing the Kitchen Adventures column is bittersweet because he often came to my house to try recipes I used for the column. So many memories are of cooking for my dad.

  • I have to admit: There are times in church my mind drifts from the message of the day.

    I am seeing the minister speak, but my mind has wandered a few times over the years about starting baseball lineups, what we should do for lunch and if I made the necessary changes to my fantasy football lineup for the week.

    It doesn’t happen a lot, but it has happened.

    But it didn’t in early May when the sermon was about reaching out to those you typically wouldn’t see in church on a regular basis.

  • Rick Hahn enjoys working at West Hardin Middle School because “they’re my kind of people,” he said.

    The 52-year-old is a custodian, archery coach and much more.

    Principal Jon Thomas has worked with Hahn for 14 years.

  • Brian and Courtney Howard of Sonora announce the birth of a son, David Colton Howard, on June 21, 2013, at Hardin Memorial Hospital. He weighed 9 pounds and was 20 inches long.

    Maternal grandparents are David and Cindy Gibson of Glendale and paternal grandparents are Elaine Howard of Elizabethtown and the late David Brian Howard.

    Maternal great-grandmothers are Bernice Smith of Sonora and Paula Meredith of Hodgenville and paternal great-grandparents are John and Shirley Howard of Rockville, Ind.

       KENTUCKY WEATHER. Cooler temperatures are a welcome sight this past week. Turned off the air conditioner and opened the windows. I’d love it to stay this way.
