Today's Features

  • My Grandma Nora made the best biscuits I’ve ever tasted.
    They were light, flaky and had a unique extra something that made them stand apart from other biscuits.
    My mother made a good biscuit too–hers were of the cat head variety: big, golden brown and crusty on top and bottom and tender and fluffy on the inside.
    It’s no wonder that I spent the next four decades trying to emulate the Queens of Biscuit–and each time, coming up sadly short.

  • James W. “Jake” Cason and Marion L. Geiger Cason were married at Anthony Baptist Church in Anthony July 14, 1962.  The Rev. H.W. Markham performed the double-ring ceremony by candlelight.

  • Most people would think that I am the size I am because of my incredible sweet tooth. Everyone who knows me understands that I cannot say no to a Reese’s Cup, a Key Lime Pie or Paula Deen’s Pound Cake.
    But the truth is, while I love my sweets, I love bread just as much.
    There’s nothing more savory than hot bread slathered in a pound of butter. And because I don’t discriminate, cold bread with butter, or peanut butter, is pretty darn good too.
    Aside from cheese biscuits, light and fluffy yeast rolls are by far my favorite bread type.
