  • Judy Bowman got her recipe for her apricot nectar cake from a coworker several years ago. Her office often has potluck luncheons and someone brought this cake.

    “No matter where you take it, everyone loves it because it’s so moist,” said Bowman. The vanilla pudding and apricot nectar added to the cake make it extra moist, and the nectar gives it a unique exotic flavor.

    Bowman brings this cake whenever she is going to a potluck or family gathering. She recently brought the cake to a potluck dinner meeting of the Bluegrass Basket Guild.

  • For the first time this Christmas, Spencer County will exclusively have a Toys for Tots program that benefits local children.
