  • Keeping records, education opportunities

    The next Cooking with Shawn class will be Thursday, January 20, at 6 p.m. at the Carroll County Extension Office. I’m not sure what the topic will be but it will be good. This will be the last class for a while as Shawn will be having surgery on his elbow (see what extreme whisking will do to you). Classes will begin again when the doctor says he can safely whisk again. I am just giving Shawn a hard time but give him high kudos for his cookbook. Ruth Ann has read it cover to cover and I can’t wait to try some of the recipes.

  • Pasta salad, key lime pie add spring to snowy days

    What do you do on the snowy days? On one a couple of years ago, I had a roasting hen in the freezer that I pulled out to bake for dinner.
    I rubbed it with a little olive oil, then mixed basil pesto, rosemary and kosher salt to rub inside and all over the outside of the bird.
    I also placed an onion and a stalk of celery inside just to add some more flavor and moisture. The aroma was incredible while it was baking, which also added more warmth to the house.
    Now it is time to bring just a little spring into the menu, even though it is not quite that season.

  • City acts to block adult oriented retail business
