  •  When it comes to traveling, my oldest daughter thinks she’s cursed.

    I don’t know about “cursed,” but she definitely has had her share of mishaps.

    Last summer she and granddaughter Caroline took a trip from their home in Virginia to visit my other daughter in Charlotte, N.C.

    The three of them went to Charleston, S.C. and Caroline barfed, which put a damper on their plans. Then Caroline stayed sick, ending Alison’s plans for a side trip to visit a friend on the way home.

  • What’s for dessert? This is the question I always get whenever I cook a meal. 

    I must admit I like dessert too — maybe too much — after all, that’s one of the very first things I ever learned to cook at age nine. So, it just might be inevitable that people will ask me that very important question.

  • Along with the joys of summertime outdoor activities comes the not-so-joyful likelihood of encountering mosquitoes. 

    While we cannot control the entire outdoors, there are control measures you can take around your home, farm and business to eliminate potential breeding sites that provide the quiet, non-flowing water these bothersome pests need to develop.

    You can decrease mosquito populations by depriving them of places to breed. However, eliminating these sites often is easier said than done, because these locations are not always obvious. 

  • I would like to invite all interested food lovers to attend “Tasty Travels across America,” a special culinary program at the Boone County Extension office Tuesday, July 24 to enjoy a meal “by the bite”  while exploring familiar and new foods relating to the geography of our country and state food cultures.

    The program will be presented at noon and again at 6 p.m. This program will explore recipes from our Extension Family and Consumer Sciences Living Well Cookbook.
