  • Happy Valentine’s Day two days early. While researching why chocolate is so popular for Valentine’s Day, I found this interesting information.

    Chocolate is a unique food as it not only satisfies the taste buds and mouth, but goes on to satisfy the brain, according to Dr. Judith Wurtman, who published “A Valentine Date with Chocolate,” in “The Antidepressant Diet.”

    Sugar and butterfat change chocolate from a bitter, dry crunchy food into one that coats the tongue and mouth and has a major impact on the way we feel.

  • One of my favorite things to do is go to my mom’s house for dinner. There’s just something about my momma’s cooking.

    After staying at her house a few days while I had some home repairs completed, she made one of my favorites — broccoli casserole.

    As a kid, you couldn’t get me to eat broccoli if you paid me a million dollars. But now this dish is a favorite.

    It’s even better the next day as leftovers. It’s almost like food crack. 

  • Elizabethtown Zumba Instructors came together to host a Zumbathon on Jan. 19 to raise awareness and funds for the Disselkamp family. Brooklyn Disselkamp is fighting Stage 4 Neuroblastoma Cancer. More than 100 people came out to dance at E’town Swim and Fitness Center for Brooklyn and raised around $1,500 for the family.

  • The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown met Feb. 1 at the Brown Pusey House in Elizabethtown.

    The program was given by Jean Davis, club member, and her husband, Sam, who started making baskets upon his retirement from Southern States Cooperative, 16  years ago. Jean discussed the history of making baskets and how it started many, many years ago back to the time of Moses. She gave the interesting history of the making of Nantucket baskets that have a hinged handle and Sam then told of the procedures to go through to weave baskets.

    We really enjoyed the little bit of snow we had. The kids had enough snow to have a snowball fight. I think Mackenzie and Tristan got the best of Ethan. It was fun to watch them all play. We are still hoping for a snowman kind of snowfall though. I know my cousin, Glen, would love to have some snow too.
