  • Have you had enough turkey and stuffing for a while?

    This week's recipe is a delicious change of pace.

    I cut up a nice sirloin steak and made this last week. I served it on rice (made with beef broth instead of water) and it was terrific!

    1 large onion, sliced thinly

    6-8 large mushrooms, sliced

  • 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.

  • Editor's note: Michael Yates is the son of Terry and Cheryl Yates and the grandson of Lambert and Agnes Livers and Thelma Jean Yates, all of Lebanon, and the late Joseph "Buddy" Yates.   Michael Yates isn't squeamish. In his line of work, that's probably a job requirement. Yates, 27, grew up in Campbellsville but now calls Washington, D.C.

  • My grandmother on my dad's side is often in my thoughts, especially this time of year.

    She was born Blanche Ruth Baum in 1893 in Rochester, Ind. She kept the Blanche a secret from everyone. I didn't know that was her first name until she died and Dad was writing the obituary.

    She was the only child of Ollie and Sadie, who owned and operated a general store, Baum's Grocery.

    She told me many times about spending time in the store, playing or doing her homework. When she was old enough, she started clerking after school.

  • When I first bought land and moved to Kentucky in 1973, I lived in Taylor County on Tallow Creek Road, which is closer to Lebanon than Campbellsville. So, I usually did my grocery shopping and such in Lebanon.

  • Don't fret - our moss-covered hero is still doing what he does best.

    The last time I hung out with the Turtle Man, Ernie Brown Jr., it was too cold for a turtle hunt. Luckily, the Turtle Man and his entourage remembered me and invited me along recently.

    I enjoyed my time with the Turtle Man last time but it's hard to get a full assessment of the Turtle Man without seeing him in action. If you've seen his videos and were impressed, let me tell you he does not disappoint in person. It's even better.

  • Since this column will run on 9-9-09, I decided to feature recipes for nine things to do with a yellow cake mix.

    These are all very tasty and easy recipes-see if you can find one you like!

  • Here are a couple of delicious Texas recipes I got from my Aunt Marge years ago.

    The Texas Caviar is a terrific salsa-like dip that I guarantee your guests will love. Serve it with tortilla chips, corn or flour, and you'll be surprised how quickly it disappears.

    The Southwestern Casserole is easy and delicious, a real family-pleaser.
