Adele Elliott: Welcome, pilgrims

Posted 3/29/2014 in Columns

Thank heavens, spring is finally here! This winter will go down in history as one of the most brutal ever. In the Golden Triangle, we had a much easier experience than in other parts of the country. Here, there were no blizzards; massive, icy traffic jams; or loss of power. But, lordy, it was cold.

Congealed salads make a comback
