Today's recipes for holiday treats come from Champaign resident Liz Brunson. They're tradition — she's been making them for years for her book club.
Cinnamon Roll-Ups creatively use white bread, and Liz got the recipe from her mother-in-law, Jean Brunson. She suggests making plenty, because people will eat five or six each.
URBANA — Marvin Lacy and Beverly Jackson-Lacy hope to open Lacy's Famous Kansas City-Style BBQ in downtown Urbana by early next year.
The Lacys are no strangers to the business, having sold barbecue from tents at various locations in Champaign the last four summers.
Now they'll have an actual restaurant at 119 W. Main St., U, just west of Crane Alley.
"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us." John 1:8-10
We're well into the holiday season. If you haven't had time to make any treats, I have truffle recipes for you that are both easy and delicious.
The first is from my grandma, Bobbie Thilmony of Loda, and I found it when raiding her recipe box earlier this fall.

Have you ever gotten an email, text or letter that made you go, "Wow, what is her problem?" In text, short sentences and using lots of periods can convey curtness.

"Owe no man anything, but to love one another; for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet, And if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." Romans 13:8-9
Nothing makes me happier this time of year than baking cookies. Today, I'm featuring a tried-and-true recipe that's a variation on a seasonal favorite.
Carol Timms of Champaign, who gave me this recipe, calls these "a lovely, soft version of ginger snaps."
1-1/2 cup sugar, divided
3/4 cup butter
