  • When the weather cools, there’s nothing like a chicken pot pie to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    But there are alternatives to the traditional pie. Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes are one way to go.

    Before you get weirded out by the words “chicken pot pie” and “cupcake” in the same sentence, bear with me.

    These are delicious treats that can be served as an appetizer, finger food or main course.

    The dish isn’t really a cupcake. The individual pot pies just look like a cupcake or muffin after baking.

  • Halloween is almost upon us and I know many of you are thinking about what type of treats you can give away or have for a Halloween get-together.

    The ideas seem endless and I’ve selected a variety to share. There is Halloween Cheese Pizza with Halloween cheese cutouts, Eyeball Tacos, Spider Web Brownies and a punch with gummy worms in an ice ring. I hope you treat some little ghouls with some spooky food. Happy Halloween.

  • The most important milestones in parenting might not be first tooth, first steps or even obtaining a driver’s license.

    Sure those were exciting enough. We celebrated every one of those achievements with the obligatory smiling photo, delighting the grandparents.

    But I’m reveling in the beginning of a new chapter in the parenting adventure. As of Oct. 1, all three of my children have found full-time jobs. With benefits. And my heart is singing.

  • Annie Varnadore sat in a motorized wheelchair at a sewing machine in the back room of her Radcliff clothing store, stitching material onto the hem of a denim skirt.

    The work was not so much about adding a decorative touch as it is about adding length.

    Varnadore, 47, who lives in Vine Grove, specializes in creating modest clothing for women. Earlier this year, Varnadore opened her store, Titus 2 Modest Woman’s Apparel, where she sells clothing she makes as well as some from manufacturers.

  • The Hardin County Cattlemen’s Association took its annual beef tour and went north to Ohio.

    The theme of the trip was “Ohio – It’s All About Families.” All the stops emphasized families, giving meaning to the trip.

    The first stop was at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta where they were given a guided tour of the speedway. The guide took the group to millionaire’s row for an overview of the track.
