  •  One of the most common New Year’s resolutions we make is to lose weight. Mindful eating means you eat slowly and become more aware of when you become full, which prevents overeating.

    When we eat too fast our body doesn’t have enough time to send signals to the brain to tell us that we are full. It takes 20 minutes for food to reach the first part of the small intestine after its ingested. At this point our bodies send the “full” signals to the brain to stop eating.

    She retired from Harper and Wyman in Princeton, Ill. and worked also at Hollywood Vasserette.

    She and her former husband Donald ran the Blue Ribbon Luncheonette in Hodgenville.

  •   When the weather gets cool, or downright cold as it has over the past few days and as it is expected to be most of next week, I really like to serve my family soup, stew or chili. Most of the recipes I use are easy and economical – both key factors in remaining in my recipe file.

    Since January is National Soup Month and since the weather has been decidedly colder, I thought I’d share some of my favorite soup recipes.

  •  There are days in a person's life when it is very hard to be cheerful.

    Every day that we live, we encounter a multitude of changes ... some good, some not so good, some downright disheartening. 

    When we must endure life-changing personal losses that leave us feeling depressed, rejected and unloved, there is a place we can turn for comfort and assurance. We can turn to our heavenly father who is the same yesterday, today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)
