    None of us could have predicted that the first days of the new year would be raw. It was actually colder here than it was at the North Pole. When it’s time to hunker down and stay warm, it’s also time to bring out those recipes that are comforting.

    If there’s anything as good as a batch of Christmas cookies, it’s a batch of recipes for Christmas cookies. And Susan Cavallo obliged. A fat envelope arrived with nine recipes and I was thrilled.

  • Hudson.jpg Culinary Conversation: Authors share recipes deer to them

    If you want the most knowledgeable information about a subject, go to the authority. In this case, the expert on cooking with venison — deer meat — is Ellwood City’s Steve Loder.

  • Hudson.jpg Culinary Conversation: My, oh my, it’s pie!

    Making a pie crust can result in one of two things. You’ll either be remembered as the king or queen every time the word pastry is mentioned. Or you won’t. For some, that age-old cliché “easy as pie” is not that simple.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
