We are approaching another busy season of fun in the sun, weddings, backyard parties and more.
With food costs going up by the minute, having a garden might help. Which means more things to do, but oh, the benefits of having your very own stash of food. It certainly will help to keep the summer food costs down.
On the news the other day, they said flour has gone up about 35 percent. A local restaurant owner told me that some of his food has gone up 100 percent.

Since spring is here, I thought I would repeat some of the gelatin salad recipes I have previously printed in this column, plus add a new one that will also be delightful to serve for all those Derby festivities coming soon.
I was delighted to try it at our condo Easter dinner. It is delicious, and I was so honored to be given the recipe to share with you.
The first two recipes are reprints and the newest recipe is the very last one, but not the least because it fits so well with these other lovely gelatin salads or desserts.
David Day, 11, of Taylorsville sat outside Carrollton Sheet Metal on Friday, selling popsicles for 25 cents to raise money for the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. The company is owned by his grandparents Dave and Barb Clymer. His sister Emma, 5, suffers from seizures. Last year, David donated $15 to the hospital after one day of selling his wares. “I don’t want people to go through what I do,” he said.
Family Ties Resource Center will host a Community Baby Shower from 6-7:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 25 at Cartmell Elementary for all new and expectant parents.
Several agencies will be teaming up together to provide new parents with valuable information and to explain what their programs can offer. Agencies will speak for a few minutes, and then parents can visit the booths and ask questions or discuss concerns about parenthood and their new baby.
