Meals in Minutes

Low on time for meal prep? No problem! This month’s recipes help you get dinner on the table with minimal chopping, measuring and post-dinner cleanup.

A Royal Treat

This month, I decided to try out royal icing cookie decorating for Valentine’s Day. While I am no expert, I learned that consistency is key—icing consistency that is. Once I figured that out, my two daughters and I let our imaginations run wild and had a blast decorating cookies.

Yummy Yogurt

Yogurt is simple to make at home and can be used in a variety of ways.

The Perfect Gingerbread

Growing up, our Christmas preparations often included a day devoted to gingerbread house-making. I remember having our fair share of disasters: scratch-made gingerbread that cracked or houses that slid apart. Those bad experiences made me hesitant to attempt a DIY gingerbread house. But, those fears are now gone. If you want to try your hand at a homemade house this year, these recipes for gingerbread and royal icing (the “glue” that holds it together) won’t disappoint.

Commentary

Thanking our lineworkers

The lineworker profession is a noble vocation, and one that comes with hazards and personal sacrifices. This last year, we heard the term “essential” more frequently given the pandemic, but the truth is these hardworking men and women keeping our lights on are always essential, pandemic or not.


Always Ready to Serve

Serving as board president of the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives, the service organization that represents Oklahoma’s 30 electric cooperative member-systems, has been one of the greatest privileges of my life. Working alongside honorable men and women to provide safe, affordable and reliable power during such a turbulent year has been a challenge we have met with fortitude and focus.
