Meal times are often associated with family and friends. But what about those who live alone? Is good food worthwhile for the on-my-own crowd? Tricia Kelly of Oglesby would rather eat what’s easily available, even if it’s less than healthy. “If you work a lot, if you have the kind of job that’s not a nine-to-five job, if you do a lot of heavy work — sometimes you go home and you just want to have a Twinkie and a Coke,” she said.

4-H food find

Tonight’s the night Bureau County 4-H members are scurrying around putting the finishing touches on each of their projects with hopes of advancing to the state fair in August. But for one Walnut Winners 4-H member, this is nothing new. Sixteen-year-old Katie Smith has been exhibiting food projects at the Bureau County 4-H fair ever since she was old enough to join at 8. Over the years, she has exhibited everything from yeast rolls to food preservation to cake decorating, where she really found her niche.

Comfort food that's easy to make

Stacey Little considers himself from a typical Alabama family. And the recipes in his book, “The Southern Bite Cookbook,” may not be typical but with an easy twist on what you may consider more difficult southern recipes. “The evolution of ‘Southern Bite’ (a blog page) has helped me understand the importance of capturing and preserving the recipes of my family,” Little said. “It has become one of my life’s missions to document the recipes that have been passed down through the generations.”

Get creative with wine (video)

For some people, cooking is about eating. For others, like Angie Cornelius of rural Sheridan, it’s about being creative. “It’s something creative and that’s what cooking is to me,” Cornelius said. “I make photos of my own food. I did have a food blog for a while. I was posting recipes fairly regularly.”

Millennials important to the wine industry

Tony Terlato is betting on millennials. “When I was in college, we drank beer. When my sons were in college, they drank draft beer. But when my granddaughter was in college, she’d get together with five girls, go out to a restaurant, and they’d each put $10 toward a $60 bottle of wine.” Terlato, chairman of Terlato Wine Group, shared this story while explaining why his entire company is focused on millennials.
