  • Remember Mr. Food? He used to have recipes on a local TV station during the noon news. I wrote down two of his recipes for sauces for chicken wings years ago, and they're quite good (and easy.)

    The wings in both recipes are baked, not fried, and can be stored in the refrigerator after baking, then warmed and tossed with the sauce at party time.

    Try one of these on your football fans next game day!

    Buffalo-style Chicken Wings

    10 lbs. chicken wings

    2 sticks real butter

    1 1/2 c. Tabasco or Louisiana hot sauce

  • Here are two chicken dishes I have fixed for many years with consistently good results. The Chicken Parmesan is as close as I could get to the dish my grandma Dillon and my mom made. My kids (and most taste-testers) always liked it. It's easy and delicious. I always serve spaghetti with it, to soak up the extra sauce.

  • Here are two of my favorite cakes of all time. They always turn out great, and the frosting is put on when the cake comes hot out of the oven.

    The first one, Texas Chocolate cake, was sent to me back in the late 70's by my chocoholic mother. She would make it and bring it with her when she visited from Illinois. The "Texas" in the title refers to the size of the cake; it needs a size or two bigger than a 9x13 cake pan. It serves a crowd.

  • Rene Zimmerman was an old German lady who was a babysitter of mine when I was a little girl about five or six. She was a widow, and a friend of my grandma Ruth. Her two sons, George and Jody, were the age of my parents, and veterans of World War II, as was my dad. Jody was a prisoner of war in Japan for three years.

    As a babysitter, Rene was okay with me, because she was a great cook and had a porch swing. She could also read your palm and tell your fortune. She made great pies, homemade dumplings, potato salad, and cookies. We would sit in the porch swing and play Old Maid.

  • Whether you are roasting a chicken (or turkey or game hen) in the oven or grilling it outside, this spice mixture really wakes up the flavor.

    Brush your bird with olive oil or butter, then rub the spice mixture over and under the skin. Cover and put in refrigerator to marinate for one-12 hours, then roast or grill as usual.

    If you've ever eaten at the Moonlite Bar B Que in Owensboro, you don't need me telling you how good it is.

  • Got zucchini? If the answer is yes, try one of these good ways to use it.

    If you pick them when they're small to medium, about six to ten inches long, they are terrific in these first two recipes. If, on the other hand, you find a giant whiffle bat-sized zucchini hiding under a leaf, grate it and use in the last recipe. Yellow squash can also be used with these recipes.

    Fresh Zucchini and Tomato Skillet

    4 medium zucchini, sliced

    2 large tomatoes, peeled and chopped

    2 small onions, sliced

    2 T. vegetable oil

    1 t. salt

  • Dozer is a 3-4-year-old terrier mix and weighs about 25 pounds. He is neutered and up to date on shots. If your pet is missing, call the shelter-it may be there. For a complete listing of pets with pictures visit adoption@petfinder.com. The shelter reminds pet owners that all cats and dogs should have a rabies shot. To adopt an animal, potential owners must complete an adoption application. The animal shelter accepts stray or unwanted animals. The shelter is located off of KY 208 and is open from noon until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday.

  • Animal shelters have a great selection of adult animals for adoption, and many of them also have kittens, puppies and purebred animals.

    On average, purebreds account for about 25 to 30 percent of a shelter’s dog population.

    Did you know?

    Many pets at your local shelter are waiting for new homes because they were obtained by people with unrealistic expectations of the time, effort, and money required to sustain a lifelong relationship with their pet.
