  • Mary Alice's Favorites


    As I mentioned last week, I’m veering in another direction with this column. Instead of readers submitting recipes for me to make, I’m going to share my all-time favorite recipes with you.

    Lydia Gumm had played well all week, but she finally ran into someone who could outdo the North Hardin High School star.
