  • Guacamole might not be a dish that stays fresh for long, but it’s usually eaten so quickly it doesn’t have time to spoil.

    When you can find good avocados on sale at the grocery store, an easy dip to make is guacamole.

    If you can chop onions, tomatoes, chilies, garlic, cilantro and avocados and mix them, you can make guacamole. It really is that easy.

  • It is time to continue our alphabetical tour of the produce section. Today, we reach the letter T. And what item in the produce section is better known than the tomato?

    Then, there is the ever famous question: Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable? A tomato is a vegetable, but it is a fruit type of vegetable, which grows and blooms and then the product grows from that bloom. Other fruit types of vegetables include cucumbers, green peppers, zucchini and squash.

  • As a single mother of four boys, 34-year-old Angela Johnson finds strength through teaching and fitness.

    A second-grade teacher at Lakewood Elementary School, she earned a teaching degree, graduating with honors, while going through a divorce.

    Her inspiration to become a teacher was two-fold. Her own children inspired her and she wanted to change the lives of other children. That goal is more difficult to achieve than she imagined, but so far it’s been a rewarding career, she said.

  • To borrow from a popular advertising campaign of the ‘90s, Bo knows tennis.
