Three cheers to beer bread

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.

My dad even raved about it, and he was a tough critic.

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.

Community should back library expansion

December 20, 2014

County officials are getting closer to solving the problem of overcrowding at the Hood County Library.

The library is in need of more space. If it does not expand, it will lose its accreditation.

A loss of accreditation would mean a loss to the county each year of about $100,000, as well as the ability to compete for grants and to access important resources for patrons.

A Christmas gift remembered

December 20, 2014

Memories of Christmas gifts given and received grow dim, but there is one gift of friendship that I received when 15 years old that I will never forget.

That’s saying a lot, since back in the 1950s there wasn’t much on my mind other than baseball, football, fishing, hunting and, of course, girls.
