  • Bruschetta. Thick slices of grilled bread, rubbed with garlic, drizzled with olive oil, topped with tomatoes and herbs.

    Bruschetta. Yum.

    While it’s mostly used as an appetizer or antipasto, it can be turned into a meal if you use larger portions of bread, kind of like an open faced sandwich. 

    This Italian dish is always best when fresh tomatoes are in season.

  • Today’s column features a Squash Casserole recipe given to me by a fellow Cecilia Homemaker, Shepherd’s Pie that was prepared for lunch at the March Cecilia Homemaker meeting and a recipe I found for Sweet Potato wedges.

  • When people need information about the history of White Mills, they usually go to one source, Henry Morrison.

    Morrison has lived in White Mills most of his life. He spends his post-retirement days delving in court house records and pouring over old newspaper articles in the library at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

    Documenting the small, storied town almost is a full-time hobby.
