This one's for all you people who have laughed at me over the years for raising my own beef cattle, because I didn't trust the meat coming out of America's factory farms. Well, maybe, not laughed outright, but looked at me funny, like your were wondering where I kept my tinfoil hat. “You're afraid of supermarket beef? Like what do you think's going to happen, hamburger is going to turn out to be made from some kind of PINK SLIME that they're treating with AMMONIA to quell the STENCH?

OK, meat mavens. Don't get your ham hocks in a huff. I'm not trying to run off with your rump roast. But, as a being with a passably functional brain, I can't help but notice the gouge that animal protein puts in a grocery bill. The first time I went as a young adult to buy ground veal for my family's traditional meatball recipe, I thought the butcher had a sort of mad cow disease of his own. I went on to discover the cost of grilling steaks even for a small gathering, or buying enough ground beef for a hearty pot of chili.

It's a given that when there's a conflict in the world, a group of people in Franklin County, Pa., is rallying to support those in need.

One of the greatest myths people still believe about fitness is that it somehow it "costs too much" to eat right. This is not a fact. People often forget to factor in the sick days, prescriptions, doctor visits and the price of a limited life from eating crappy foods.  If you incorporate even just a few of these basic strategies on a regular basis, eating for optimal nutrition health can actually be a sound economic decision and valuable investment in your quality of life. 1. Buy starch carbs in bulk.

The Male Christmas Experience: You've gone through this all about 20 times before, so you understand you're pretty much hopeless before the whole things starts. But you know you have to shop anyway, and you still remember a couple of ground rules from past Christmas disasters. Rules like don't buy her something that reminds her of work, like a toilet plunger, and don't buy her something that you really want for yourself like "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. " So, armed with these reminders in your toolbox and a few others, you head out to the store.

“I just read in Mail Call recently, someone complaining about illegally parked cars, especially the ones parked on the wrong side of the street, pointing in the wrong direction. Good luck getting that remedied. It'll take a long time, but if you work with the city police and the city council, it'll eventually stop. I had the same problem in my neighborhood, and it actually affected the school buses picking up little kids. You can imagine how ugly that situation was. But if you're patient and work with the right people and the authorities, you can get that situation fixed, if it's in your neighborhood.” - Hagerstown “Hurray for the NTSB's recommendation to ban all drivers' cellphone use. This needs to become law, since I find three out of five drivers constantly tailgate and (should)

I love a good English pie. It incorporates fresh vegetables, ground meat, sauce and loads of flavor.  I've added bison to the traditional recipe instead of beef; it's delicious and good for you. You also can substitute wild game, such as venison or boar, ground up to add some authentic local flavor. I also like fresh whipped potatoes, but you can easily use leftover whipped potatoes. Make sure they are not really starchy and stuck together; you want a creamy consistency to give a smooth texture to your final dish.

When making "old standbys" or family recipes, we often follow the recipe to a T to keep the consistent quality that we are used to. However, there are many simple recipe modifications that can turn potentially high-calorie, high-fat, high-sodium old standbys into healthful recipes that are packed with nutrients without compromising the flavor.  When making fried chicken, try dipping the chicken pieces in skim milk or egg substitute and crushed low-fat, high-fiber cereal in place of bread crumbs.

This delicious dish is perfect for the grill or indoors on your broiler pan. The perfect protein of choice is my favorite cut of meat, flank steak. I prefer 2- to 2-1/2-pound steaks with nice marbling and grain running through the meat. You can use thick cuts of round or chuck steak, but flank steak will always give you the best cut and flavor. As for the teriyaki marinade, I suggest using your favorite recipe or purchasing one off the store shelf. Make sure to marinate at least for 4 hours, preferably overnight.
