Today's Features

  • With the holidays approaching, everyone is looking for a nice dessert that will impress the relatives.  Well look no further. 

    This cheesecake is a spin on the classic pumpkin pie, while still having the same flavors as the original.

  • You are standing in the check-out line at your hometown grocery store and the clerk asks, “Paper or plastic?” You respond by saying, “Neither,” because you have reusable grocery bags.

    Reusable shopping bags definitely are a step in the right direction, but they require some care and attention. If not properly cared for, reusable bags can possibly nurture and spread bacteria.

  • Autumn is a beautiful time in Kentucky.  As you drive around Carroll County, take notice of the changing colors of the trees that are beginning to show.

    Our gardens and lawns can also be very attractive during this time, but they can also be messy, with piles of leaves from our trees and spent shoots from our flower beds. 

    The way we address this yard waste can have a significant impact on our gardens and the environment.
