  • Last week my in-laws took the kids to the zoo. And I think it’s the longest I’ve been by myself in at least two years, probably more.
    It’s a weird feeling.

    I spent days looking forward to it and writing down stuff I hoped to accomplish. My to-do list was longer than it had any right to be. I’d written things like “clean out closets, upstairs and down,” “make squash compote,” “clean baseboards” and, most importantly, “write column.”

  • It’s been a long ride for David Haines. He’s journeyed from young soldier to armor officer to wounded warrior to chief operating officer of Ride 2 Recovery, an organization out to support wounded warriors through cycling.

    Haines joined the U.S. Army at 18, right out of high school, in his home state of Rhode Island. He was a tank crewman and trained at Fort Knox.

  • On awards night May 14 at North Hardin High School, the Radcliff Woman’s Club president presented $1,000 scholarships to Teresa Sears and Braden Proffitt.

    Teresa, a 2012 graduate of North Hardin High School, is the daughter of Susan and Dean Sears. She plans to attend the University of Kentucky and major in mining engineering. She received the William C. Parker scholarship, which awards her $5,000 per semester for up to eight semesters, the Hardin County Homemakers scholarship and the Radcliff Optimist Club scholarship.

  • To celebrate National Garden Week June 3 through 9, the Potted Few Garden Club made a floral presentation to the Fort Knox Federal Credit Union, Administrative Office and Branch.  Pictured are Renate Gosser, Bill Rissel and Club President Anneliese Knoll.

  • Several people have asked where to get ideas for meal planning and for simple meal ideas.

    Meal ideas often come from the Internet. Pinterest is a website that comes up in most food idea conversations, but it can be intimidating. There are so many delicious-looking dishes on the site. And after you save some on your profile, figuring out what you want to do with them can become daunting.

  • Here we are again at the end of the month and it’s time to share recipes that have been given to me or have been requested. One such recipe is Pineapple Au Gratin or what some people call Scalloped Pineapple. Julia McKinley is a friend of mine from Cecilia Homemakers. She shared the recipe she took to the annual Homemakers County meeting last month. Julia said several people asked for the recipe.

  • The Fourth of July is time for families and friends not only to get together to celebrate freedom but also to eat.

    Picnics and cookouts are everywhere on Independence Day and cooks like to add a little of the red, white and blue to food as well as décor.

    This can be done with colorful berries, a variety of colorful gelatin options, sprinkled or iced cookies or, with the help of some food coloring, cake.

    A red, white and blue cake looks great on a table with a patriotic theme.
