Today's Features

  • Some days, there’s nothing like eating a good sandwich for dinner.

    At the end of a long work day, most don’t have the energy or appetite for a big meal with all the fixings. On those days, a sandwich with something tasty on the side hits the spot.

    The best sandwiches often are the ooey-gooey, hot, cheesy, melted kind. The perfect grilled cheese can be one of the best-tasting things in the universe. Add a little bacon and you’ve got the makings of something spectacular.

  • Usually, Easter leftovers are hard-cooked eggs with names written on them or decorated by children.

    There also might be eggs from egg hunts. Check those out carefully. If there are any cracks where dirt and germs could get into the egg, discard them.

    But for those of you who had baked ham, you might have so much that you get tired of ham sandwiches.

    The recipes I have for you today use leftover ham.

    Happy Easter. This is my favorite time of year. I love spring, warmer weather, but most of all, I love Easter. I love celebrating the resurrection of Jesus with all of my family and friends. It is a time when I stop to count my blessings and thank the Lord for each and every one of them. I hope all of you have a very blessed Easter Sunday with your loved ones or friends.
