  • Chef and cookbook author Nancy Hughes’ Tomato Basil Soup with Chicken is a bowl of comfort at its best.

    “Everybody loves soup, but it takes a long time and cooks away all the nutrients,” said Hughes, author of “15-Minute Diabetic Meals.”   

    Hughes said the soup takes “15 minutes flat” to prepare.

    The key is to make sure to drain the navy beans and to rinse them twice to get rid of the cloudiness and gunk.

  • – Editor’s note: W.B. Evans is on vacation this week. Due to reader requests, we are reprinting this Remember When column, which was originally published in the May 13, 2007, edition of The Lancaster News. “Mamas cannot be replaced, but our memories help keep them alive,” Evans said. “I’m getting mushy, but somehow I feels that she knows I still care, at least, if The Lancaster News is on the newsstands in heaven!”

    KERSHAW – Preacher Kenny “Cotton” Pate has an unusual way of explaining what’s going on whenever tears of joy flow down his face and into his ZZ Top-looking beard.
    “I always tell my folks that’s the good Lord washing the nasty out of me,” Cotton said.
    Cotton’s words may be somewhat unusual, but he isn’t your typical preacher.

  • From the outside, French toast – bread soaked in an egg batter and cooked golden brown in a skillet or on a griddle – appears to be a hearty breakfast treat fit for a king.
    According to promotional literature by the International House of Pancakes (IHOP),  the first written mention of this delicacy dates to Henry V of England.
    However, nothing could be farther from the truth. It was created as a way to rescue stale bread so nothing went to waste.
