    Members of the Elizabethtown Mission Team put the final touches on the roof for Chad Engle's new room. Chad is a 14-year-old Hardin County resident that has had cerebal palsy since birth. He has been cared for by his grandmother and aunt his entire life. What started as a request from his grandmother to make a bigger shower to bathe Chad has turned into the Elizabethtown Mission Team building an addition onto the house for him and his medical equipment, including a large bathroom.

  • When Dr. John Cole, a neurosurgeon, was featured in a column last year, and it was the first time I had ever heard of heirloom tomatoes. At the time, he was traveling to Louisville to Fresh Market to buy that type of tomatoes, which come in a variety of colors.

    An heirloom tomato is a variety that has been passed from gardener to gardener. Heirlooms come from seeds and are easy to share.

    Heirloom varieties’ greatest quality is their old-time flavor and there’s a wide vareity of tastes.

  • With gardens continuing to come in, fresh vegetables are ready for the eating. Squash, zucchini, corn and tomatoes fresh off the vine are just a few of the delicacies hitting dinner tables fresh from the garden.

    There’s nothing better than using fresh tomatoes on a BLT sandwich served with butter-coated corn on the cob from the garden. It’s like your mouth waters for it while patiently waiting for the tomatoes to grow.

  • An Elizabethtown woman with a zeal for baking earned several nods at the Kentucky State Fair including a blue ribbon in the category “Your Favorite Cake.”

    Linda Burgess’ Chocolate Raspberry Cake comes from a recipe she worked out, trying to mimic the taste of a candy she loved as a child, she said.

    One of seven children, Burgess has been a cook since her mother showed her the kitchen ropes at an early age.

  • On this day last year, I took my dad out to lunch for his birthday. He had steak, as usual. I didn’t know then that would be the last time I would have the chance to take my daddy to lunch.

    I’ve spent the last year flooded with memoires of my father and tears from missing him.

    Some weeks writing the Kitchen Adventures column is bittersweet because he often came to my house to try recipes I used for the column. So many memories are of cooking for my dad.
