Today's Features

  • Jean Mindock shows a quilt she recently completed during show and tell at the Stitchers Quilt Guild Meeting in August. This is one of approximately 300 quilts that will be displayed during the annual Heartland of Kentucky Quilt Show Sept. 20 and 21 at Pritchard Community Center in Elizabethtown. For information, contact Patty Pruitt at 270-307-2226.

  • The first day of fall finally arrives Sunday. The air is cooler, the sun shines in a goldish tint and the smell of apple cider fills the air.

    With the arrival of fall, cooking with caramel and spices are a must and Caramel Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies fit the bill.

    Just reading the description of this cookie gave me the warm fuzzy feeling of sipping a cup of warm cider.

    While the cookies bake in the oven, the smell of the spices in the cider fill your home.

  • Iva Lee Owsley and I became close as fellow members of Cecilia Homemakers. With her recent passing, it seems appropriate to revisit a few special words about her published recipes in June 2011 plus some of her special ones as a tribute to her memory.

    A fellow member of Cecilia Homemakers, Debbie McQueary, said about Iva Lee, “I think she is a lovely woman, inside and out, and I enjoy the stories she shares about her family.”

  • Hundreds of country music fans came together Saturday, filling all but a few back rows of the 842-seat auditorium at Lincoln Jamboree in Hodgenville. They came to be entertained and celebrate an anniversary.

    Jamboree owner Joel Ray Sprowls has been producing the show for 59 years.

  • Erik and Myra Scott of Elizabethtown announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Taylor Scott, to Jay Eastridge, son of Pat and Donetta Eastridge of Sonora.

    The bride-to-be is a 2012 graduate of Western Kentucky University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in nursing. She is a registered nurse in the newborn nursery at Hardin Memorial Hospital.
