Paul Harvey spot-on about police

January 10, 2015

Law Enforcement has been in the news lately due to a couple of unfortunate incidents in the nation. Some media have made police officers out to be the enemy, instead of the protectors of your property and the people you love.

January 10, 2015

Handed down from generation to generation on stained recipe cards and in tattered notebooks, comfort foods are staples for anyone wanting a hearty meal and a little taste of home.

Such a recipe has been in my family for over 65 years – my mom’s meatloaf recipe.

She got the recipe while working as a nanny.

RIP, EDC: Honoring the dearly departed

January 10, 2015

The Lake Granbury Economic Development Corporation died this week.

Should any of us grieve its passing?

Well … maybe.

Though many of us may feel that we weren’t related to the dearly departed, the EDC was kind of like the Grandma who periodically sent us $10 checks in the mail, with a note to buy ourselves something nice.

December 27, 2014

by Nancy Pricer

I discovered beer bread about 20 years ago, and it’s a standard for me to make when we have smoked brisket.

Beer bread has been a long-time favorite of mine, mostly because it’s so easy to make.

Praise the lard!

December 27, 2014

by Carol Cook

I come from a family of cooks, bakers and eaters of good food.

When I say good, I mean taste. And how do I access this?

Food was similar to religion. Lard and butter were used daily in or on nearly every dish set on the table.

Seriously, pie crust or biscuits could not be made without lard, and homemade bread could not be eaten without real butter.

Our Christmas not that different from first one

December 27, 2014

by Jim Oglesby

There is something about Christmas that draws families together or those of us who are Christians think families should get together at Christmas, probably more than any other holiday.

Relationships are important, and they are fragile and they are complicated.

More and more today in America, families are not made up of mom and dad and granddad and grandma.

Play misty for me – for Auld Lang Syne

December 20, 2014

Wednesday morning, I saw that an email from an old chum had landed in quarantine instead of my inbox.

I fished it out and opened it to find a Merry Christmas greeting from former co-worker Larry, who used to be a columnist for The Dallas Morning News.

Larry and I met while working at the DMN.
