Meg Makes: Abundance of tomatoes? Time for a Bloody Mary

For as long as I can remember, my mom has canned tomato products from her garden, and I've always happily helped.

(Fresh garden tomatoes are hands down my No. 1 favorite food, so chances are, I can swipe a few while I wash them, cut out stems and help cook them down into sauce or juice.)

Gifford market a quick success

GIFFORD — A start-up farmers market has been a rousing success.

My Amish Home: Weeds grow as other chores take precedence

"Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily, I say unto you, if ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." Matthew 21:21-22

Food giveaway set for Saturday

URBANA — A truckload of food will be given away from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, but don't wait until the end of the morning to get there.

The food goes fast, and it's available to the needy on a first-come, first-served basis, according to the Eastern Illinois Foodbank.

Meg Makes: Peaches please the palate in this pretty pie

I'm into my second week of recipes featuring fresh peaches. It's summer, so I think that we should use them while we have them.

This peach pie is easy to make, and is incredibly pretty.

PEACH PIE

Single pie crust

1/2 cup of your favorite chopped nuts

1 cup sugar (if you like a more tart pie, use 1/2 cup)

My Amish Home: Freshening up house to match weather

"Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy Holy Spirit from me. Restore me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit." Psalm 51:10-12
