  • Courtney.jpg Courtney Caughey: The magic of microwave cooking

    On Sunday, a friend and I stopped by the Angels for Animals yard sale in Canfield, Ohio. As I was browsing the items, I noticed a thin book called, "Microwave Cooking Guide." Its cover was worn and it looked as if it had seen some use in its day, so for fun, I purchased it.

  • Courtney.jpg Courtney Caughey: All about ham!

    So, this week I am taking a break from Easter recipes to talk about a quick-fix side dish. Last night, I tried Ore Ida's Steam n' Mash red potatoes. I needed something to accompany the pork chops I was making and when I saw the potatoes in the freezer section, I was quite intrigued.

    Potatoes can be prepared in a million different ways. I have chosen to make scalloped potatoes for my Easter dinner. There is a wide variety of scalloped potato recipes on the web. You can make the side dish with cheese, with onion, with ham, with practically anything.

  • Courtney.jpg Courtney Caughey: Some more Easter dishes for you ...

    Continuing on with my Easter dinner recipes, today I will introduce the candied carrots and lite coconut cake. Candied carrots seem like they belong on the Easter table. I mean, we all know the Easter Bunny, and we all know that bunnies like carrots, so it's just right.

Beginning tonight, the Pittsburgh Penguins will take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of the NHL playoffs. So, who ya got? And in how many games?

Penguins, in five games or fewer. Too much firepower for the Blue Jackets, especially if Evgeni Malkin is ready to go.
Penguins, in six or seven games. It’s a pretty even matchup on defense, but Pittsburgh will grind it out.
Blue Jackets, in five games or fewer. Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Blue Jackets spells trouble for the Pens.
Blue Jackets, in six or seven games. Bobrovsky gives Columbus the edge, but it won’t be easy.
