  • Mexican dishes are easier to prepare and delicious

    Hello once again my friends. As I write this article I am hoping everyone is recovering from the recent storms and damage suffered from them. This warm spring weather brings the green back, but also the stormy weather. After being out and about and hearing the chatter on social media, I saw that one of the local Mexican restaurants suffered some damage and has yet to reopen. Some of my most requested recipes are Mexican foods so I thought this might be a good time to write an article about preparing some of your favorite Mexican foods at home.

  • Newspaper has covered changes over 150 years

    The Civil War had ended just a couple of years earlier and the nation was still recovering from the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, a native Kentuckian.
