As the weather turns chilly, it’s a perfect time to get cozy and work on a craft project! 6th thru 12th grade students in Knott county are invited to a 3 week virtual class on hand quilting. At the end of the weeks, students will have completed a small hand-sewn quilt. Students also have the option to choose from two different fabric choices in the take-home kits we will be mailing to students.

That would awesome to have one of these for adults

Would it be possible to create a section of this for adults?

For this Monday Mention, Randy Wilson takes us on a tour of James Stills newly restored cabin. Take a walk through this historic cabin where Still wrote works such as River of Earth, Run for the Albertas, and many more great Appalachian works.

Thanks y’all!

The smell in here is insane!

I'm watching while making dinner. My 5 year old daughter just asked if I was cooking what y'all are cooking on the show. Who else wants to see a cook-along episode?

Lemon juice, olive oil, herbs from my garden, pepper, and salt. I omit the sweet, but that pomegranate molasses intrigues me.

I think y'all helped me decide on Sunday dinner: harissa chicken and roasted grapes with a lovely salad!

Come to North Carolina and we will go to Vivian Howard’s restaurant.

sage pesto sounds delicious! i am definitely going to try that soon!

we say no to tofurkey and yes to all the beautiful veggies!!!

Would love more Kale recipes, cooked and raw. Completely good looking meal. Great show. Can't wait until next time.

Great description, Jenny. I can almost taste it (but not quite).

As a reminder, give us a share so more folks can see the awesomeness of orange foods tonight!

cubed potatoes and good old green beans. Standard meal growing up.

That was fun. I've never tried cooking carrots that way.

I’m with you on the homemade dressing. I haven’t purchased salad dressing in 25 years.

Jenny, no worries about being on live, you two make it look easy and makes me want to try it at home. With complicated dishes, I like watching but don't try. I have kale in refrigerator.

My dinner sounds boring compared to y'alls. Cooked ribs with potatoes in one pot, heated up soup beans, pickled beets, and cornbread.

Will the recipes be posted or is there a cookbook available for these recipes?

This only showed up in my FB feed today 😢. Wish I had known about it. Do you have a schedule for upcoming What’s Cookin’ events so I don’t miss the next one?

That reminds me of my wedding reception!

I really enjoyed the show!! You all are great!!

When is Filipino nite?

Hold me closer tiny dumplings 🥟.

Glad you got your herbs. Happy to share.

I like be circus peanut!!!

carrots with harissa is my favorite!
