Old Gold and Blue
Jaime Naternicola and her husband Aaron admit it.
They bleed Old Gold and Blue.
For Budd and Robin Sapp, tailgating at Fairmont State and WVU football games is almost as much fun as going to the games themselves.
A proud FSU grad, Budd is a professor in the School of Education, serves on the FSU Athletic Association board and is active with the FSU Alumni Association.
Unique broccoli salad wins ‘Recipe’ contest
Connie Ahrens knows a good thing when she sees it.
Like the refreshing broccoli salad she’s almost required to take to any gathering.
A unique combination of broccoli, peas and ramen noodles, it won her first place in the August “My Favorite Recipe” cook-off.
The Fairmont chef
Summer picnic salads can be very tasty.
They can also be very unpredictable in the hot summer sun.
Not Shirley Stanton’s “Refreshing Cucumber Salad.”
A love of food
When you’re known for a certain food, you make it for everybody.
That’s how Vonda Pheasant feels.
“Any time we had anything at work (the Fairview Library), my boss wanted me to bring my potato salad,” she said.
And she would.
Play with your food
For years, Connie Ahrens was surrounded by science-types.
Her late husband, Steve, was a scientist, astronomer and inventor of the patented “Quakecaster,” which predicts when and where earthquakes may strike.
Making it his own
Just because a recipe is in a classic cookbook doesn’t mean you have to make it that way.
Take Bob Coffman’s coleslaw, for example.
He took the recipe from an old Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.
“But I tweaked it,” he said. “More vinegar for better flavor. Salt and pepper, things like that. But it’s basically the same recipe.”
Your basic potato salad
You can’t have a cookout without potato salad.
The trouble is, what kind?
Hot potato salad with bacon? Warm sweet potato salad? Potato salad with peas? With green beans? Green chilies? Sour cream?
Slow and steady wins the ribbon
Bobbi Kozul is proof that slow and steady really does win the race ... and the blue ribbon.
Her “Mama Roberta’s Hot Dog Sauce” took home top prize in the Times West Virginian’s “My Favorite Recipe” cook-off for July.
A wonderful sauce
There’s a first time for everything.
Including making hot dog sauce.
Laura Mileto has lived in Marion County for 10 years now. But, believe it or not, she’s never tasted, much less made, hot dog sauce.
