  • I've been trying a lot of new dishes lately. I don't know why, maybe it has something to do with winter coming, a connection with the squirrelly part of my family.

    And speaking of nuts, this new pecan pie recipe I tried is so good it rivals my mom's favorite pie.

    She wasn't a frequent pie baker, but pecan pie was her favorite and this time of year, when the pecans came in, she'd fix it often.

    This first recipe is from Sunnyland Farms in Albany, Ga., and it is to die for.

  • Millions of cases of foodborne illness occur in the United States each year. Don't let a case of food poisoning ruin your holiday season!

    With proper food handling practices you can protect yourself and your family from foodborne illnesses.

    Keep everything that comes into contact with food clean. Be sure to wash your hands often, especially after handling raw meats. Clean and sanitize kitchen counters and cutting boards.

    Use clean dishtowels, hand towels, dishes and utensils.

  • I came up with a really good corn casserole recipe recently. My family really liked it, even though I had sneaked a can of hominy in it.

    It's similar to the Corn Casserole that's been around for umpteen years, just a little different -- great for a potluck. (And I never thought I'd get my girls to eat hominy!)

  • Pumpkins have been on sale for weeks, children have obsessed over their costumes and somewhere in the middle of it all is the story of All Hallow's Eve.

    Halloween, as it is known today, has its origins in something a bit more interesting then just pumpkin carving and candy collecting. In fact, the evening's festivities marked the beginning of winter for the ancient Celtic race of the Druids.

  • Bubby is an older geagle mix who would make a great pet.

    Bubby is a pretty laid back little guy who would just love to cuddle on the couch or hang out on the front porch. Bubby is neutered and current on all of his shots.

    October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and in celebration the Shelter is waiving the $25.00 adoption fee. If your pet is missing, call the shelter-it may be there.
