  • Lonnie serves a treasure found in old jewelry box

    The other day I started cleaning out my jewelry box, a much dreaded job I must confess. I’ve mentioned to many of my friends that it is something I really must do, so I finally started into it. “Started” is the operative word because I didn’t finish it, although it does look much better. It is not quite the tangled mess it once was, thank heavens.

  • Lonnie offers vegetable casserole with chicken

    During the winter, it is often hard to come up with really good fresh vegetable meals. Tomatoes are never as good as the summer, however, I will buy the tomatoes on the stems because they do taste a lot better to me. I much prefer to use frozen vegetables because they also seem more like fresh vegetables, and frankly, the frozen vegetables do retain more of their nutrients. There are always good ways to cook the frozen vegetables and you don’t have to cook them to death, you can still have them al dente.
