Black Friday in Trenton

 

Black Friday SaleTrenton, KY – How do you avoid the hustle and bustle of Black Friday but still get some great bargains?  Try shopping in a small town in Kentucky.

There was only one shop open today in Trenton, but business was steady, and it does qualify as an independently owned small business; we were just a day early for Small Business Saturday, and we wanted to get some sale fabric –yes we REALLY did need more Christmas fabric. At least that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

A Glorious Pound Cake for the Holidays

 

Martha White®Nashville, TN – A homemade cake makes every holiday memorable. Although we love fancy cakes, the ones that become classics are often unpretentious and uncomplicated for their subtle rich flavor. Pound cakes fit that description perfectly. Originally made with a pound each of butter, sugar, eggs and flour, pound cakes have evolved into an abundance of delectable variations.

“I think a pound cake is appropriate for almost any occasion,” said the Martha White® baking expert, Linda Carman. “Serve toasted for breakfast, plain for dessert or paired with fruit, ice cream or sauces. Easy to wrap, they make wonderful holiday gifts or dessert to carry to a holiday get-together.”
