  • The Best: Share the love with Amish Friendship Bread

    One of the most popular recipes I’ve ever run is for Amish Friendship Bread, which was first published in my column almost 20 years ago. The reason it’s called “Friendship” bread is because you share the starter. Once your starter has been fed and has completed a 10-day cycle, you use some, save some and share the rest with friends. Folks have told me that they have run into friends who gave them their starter years before, and they are both still making the bread. I love that.

  • Accessions Command staying in business until January

    Deactivation of the U.S. Army Accessions Command now is scheduled to take place in January.

    Original estimates put the deactivation at this past summer and then the end of October. Officials say the change in expectations is the result of Accessions Command continuing to meet Army needs.

    The change came because the Army asked Lt. Gen. Benjamin Freakley to help complete the transfer of senior command functions at Fort Knox and help with the completion of the 2012 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, said Anne Kucik, public affairs officer for Accessions Command.
