Prather's Pick: "Prairie Chicken Little"

Remember “Chicken Little” — the classic tale about the chicken who thought the sky was falling? This week’s picture book for kids is a retelling of that tale. “Prairie Chicken Little” was written by Jackie Mims Hopkins and illustrated by Henry Cole. This 2013 book is published by Peachtree Publishers.

Over A Cup: Crumbly Crust Apple Pie

Two weeks ago, this column featured a recipe that I had found in an old magazine-like cookbook, “1000 Recipe Cook Book,” which cost 25 cents back in 1949 when it was published by Dell Publishing Company.

Prather's Pick: “Dozens of Cousins”

During the summer, some families travel to reunions where kids meet aunts, uncles and cousins. That’s what “Dozens of Cousins” — this week’s picture book for children — is all about.

Over a cup of coffee: Mary’s rhubarb recipes

I imagine that rhubarb season is pretty much over for this year. However, rhubarb is what this week’s column is all about. All three of the recipes are courtesy of Mary Burnett, of Craig. If you can’t use them this year, I’ll bet you can next year!

4-H provides youth with a variety of skills

According to J.D. Sexton, Moffat County Extension 4-H youth development and agriculture agent, “4-H is the largest youth organization in the country.” And while 4-H members keep busy all year long, late summer is perhaps the busiest time of all for them.

Over a Cup of Coffee: 2 salads in 1

Slow cooker or barbecue — it’s the way to escape the kitchen heat during these hot days.

From Pipi's Pasture: Pipi is real, and she’s one smart cow

It’s been suggested that I write about Pipi. She’s the real, live cow for whom Pipi’s Pasture is named. At the present time, Pipi is on summer pasture, where there’s plenty of shade during these hot summer days.

Over a Cup of Coffee: Vanilla Cream Pudding

This week’s column ends with a recipe for making “Vanilla Cream Pudding” from scratch. This recipe calls for vanilla from the grocery store, but I’m sure you could use vanilla bean seeds instead.

Prather's Pick: "Ordinary Grace" highlights suspenseful murders

“Ordinary Grace,” this week’s novel for adults, is powerful — powerful because the events of the novel center around five deaths and the impact of those deaths on the town of New Bremen.

“Little Red Hot” is sure to spice up your child’s bookshelf

"Little Red Hot" is a classic tale turned spicy by author Eric A. Kimmel and illustrator Laura Huliska-Beith.
