  • Here we are at the end of the month again and I have several interesting recipes for you.

    A reader emailed me and asked me about Mr. Gene Baskett’s Apple Banana Cherry Nut Bread from a recipe last year. It seems the original recipe didn’t specify the type of cherries. The Baskett family said it’s chopped maraschino cherries, the type often used for ice cream sundaes and such. This would be an excellent time to make some of these loaves and freeze them. The recipe calls for apples, which are in season.

  • Hardin County plays host to the Traditional Music Festival for the 19th year this weekend. The centerpiece of the festival is the mountain dulcimer and musicians say it remains a relevant instrument because it is easy to play and the tunes are familiar.

    “The mountain dulcimer was born out of a desire for an instrument that had a drone sound or a similarity to the bagpipe sound as many of the Appalachian ancestors would have remembered from Scotland and Ireland,” said Pam Story of the Heartland Dulcimer Club.

    Hello friends, this weather really has changed, it’s so cool now I get cold to the bone. The old people would say that when I was little. Regina and I were talking about that, her dad Eddie Peters would say that and we wondered at our age, about 12 maybe 14, what he meant by that. Now we know. The bones do get cold and hurt sometime.

    KENTUCKY WEATHER.Falling leaves and temperatures. The leaves are rapidly falling. No time to stay on the trees to see the beautiful colors. Seems like the temperature is going to be colder earlier this year. Dare I mention that four letter word...snow? Some are thinking we will have a lot more snow this year.
