    For those of you who are just cooking for one or two, don’t just settle for a sandwich (peanut butter and jelly?) or a bowl of cereal every night. Try out some recipes and experiment with what works best for you.

    I’ve been cooking for my wife and I for a while now, and I really don’t feel comfortable cooking for more than two to four people. My wife was used to cooking for the masses when our kids were growing up. With a little planning and some quick cooking, you can create healthy meals for you and your dining partner.

    Winter at the beach: Cold winds along the dunes, clouds scudding along above us, and where last summer the children and dogs romped, the beach is dominated by plaintive little wading birds picking at a jellyfish.

  •  We hear it all the time. Portions are getting larger and larger. Trying to manage portion size can feel like a constant, impossible task. Every day face we’re faced with huge portions at restaurants and surrounded by oversized packages of processed foods at every turn. It can get overwhelming!

    This may not seem like an earth-shattering point, but so many people think of portion control as deprivation. That’s not it at all! You can control your portions and still feel satisfied — and it’s easier than you think.

  •  Five generations of the Simmons-Milliken family gathered in Supply to celebrate Christmas on Dec. 25, 2014.

  •  When I heard the Scriptures selected for this ecumenical Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, I jumped at the chance to offer some thoughts. After all, we do not often hear talks about women and Jesus. It’s usually his male pals whose tales are told, whose antics are recorded, and whose discipleship is offered for our modeling.

     

  •  Air Force Airman Alex S. Harvell, son of Regina and Raymond Harvell of Winnabow, graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland in San Antonio.

Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

    When clouds appear, wise men put on their cloaks;

    When great leaves fall, the winter is at hand.

    Shakespeare, Richard III: II, 3.

     

    Can we talk about leaves?
