  • There’s nothing better in the summer than to come home from work and make a great sandwich with some sort of fresh vegetable as a side.

    A favorite sandwich is Italian grilled cheese. That might not be the name for it, but for lack of anything else to call the sandwich, we’ll go with Italian grilled cheese. It’s grilled and it has cheese and Italian ingredients, so the name fits.

  • Hi, I’m Becca and I’m rubbish at making no-bake cookies.

    There should be a support group for this sort of thing. It’s frustrating and has been a lifelong dilemma with virtually no success.

    But no-bake cookies, specifically those made by the late Eula Wright, are a favorite, and it’s worth it to keep trying.

  • There is nothing like a county fair. As many would say, “It’s the greatest show in town.” Well, it was the only fair in town last week, and I hope you did not miss it. There is something for everybody.

    Last Monday, I judged the culinary arts contests. There were lots of different cakes, pies, candies and assorted baked goods. It was a delight, and since I know so many cooks in Hardin County, I asked the chairpersons, Dee Dee Cooper and Nan Filburn of Vine Grove Homemakers, to turn over the entry tags.

  • What a relief we have had from the heat this week, at this writing, Tuesday, we have had little rain about .1” Sunday evening, but others had more and yet others none.

    We are still watering our garden. And have been picking oodles of blackberries, and still many more. If we get a good rain the later ones will be nicer than what we have picked so far, though most are pretty nice berries. We like fruit juice with our breakfast, and since our grape vine hasn’t been producing the past couple of years. I decided to make blackberry juice.
