All in the seasonings
Bobbi Kozul’s got this recipe for hot dog sauce you could call a work in progress.
She’s been working on it for the past 30 years or so, and she thinks she’s finally got it down pat.
The ultimate meal
For some people, steak is the ultimate meal.
Or lobster. Crab. Pheasant.
Not for Johnnie Hamilton.
An old-fashioned favorite
You really should have been at Juanita Davis’ house on the Second of July.
Don’t worry about calling ahead of time. She probably had enough for you.
Each Independence Day weekend, she whips up a patriotic feast for more than 30 friends and family.
Deviled eggs. Potato salad. Hot dogs, hamburgers, steak, chicken. All kinds of desserts and fruits.
‘The easiest thing to bake’
You’ve got your eating apples and you’ve got your cooking apples.
And if you’re smart, you won’t confuse one for the other.
“Eating apples, like Red Delicious, aren’t good for pies,” said Pauline Eshelman. “They’re too mushy.”
Making it perfect
When Judy Broadwater tried a piece of pie at a local restaurant one day, she liked it so much she asked for the recipe. The menu didn’t say what kind of pie it was, but it was different and she liked it.
“We don’t give out the recipe for our buttermilk pie,” the waitress said.
It’s always pi(e) time
Marcie Williams may be a decorating diva when it comes to cake, but at the end of the meal, she’d rather have pie.
Ready for a cool, refreshing summertime pie?
Get your forks ready for Rodney Jenkins’ “Pineapple Nut Express.”
Winning cake is ‘easy, easy easy’
There’s chocolate cake.
With thick gooey frosting, it’s always a welcome treat.
Then you have fruit-flavored cakes. They’re good, too.
Don’t forget pound and coffee cakes.
But if you want a cool, light, refreshing different kind of cake, you’ll want a frozen slice of LuAnn Pallotta’s Triple Layer Ice Cream Cake with Fruit Salsa.
My Favorite Recipe: A country cook
Ask Milford Suder if his wife, Helen, is a good cook and all he can do is close his eyes, grin widely and rub his tummy.
“You better believe it,” he said.
She should be. Now 81, she’s been cooking since she was 6. She learned “good old country cooking,” as she calls it, from her mother, Nellie Elizabeth Parker, herself a good country cook.
Food is for sharing
Food does more than feed your body. It also feeds your soul.
Ellen Jane Parks learned this at an early age, growing up on her family’s 150-acre farm near Enterprise.
