  • Blackberry Peach Cobbler is a winner

    I put quite a few bags of blackberries in the freezer this summer, so I've had my eye out for new recipes to try using them. I experimented with several pie and coffeecake recipes, but this Blackberry-Peach Cobbler is the winner in my book. It's from the cookbook, "Down Home with the Neelys," which I got after watching their TV show on the Food Network. (I love their food, but can anyone be THAT happy?)

  • U.S. Senate candidate - Jack Conway

Now, I have an opponent when asked if he had a jobs plan said that people needed to work for lesser wages and needed some tough love. And I actually have a jobs plan.
