Let it snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Paducah and Western Kentucky received from 4 to 7 inches of snow this past week. It was beautiful with ice on our pond and woodpeckers and deer at our birdfeeders. What a beautiful gift from God!

The snow reminded me of a recipe in my Cookbook, "Favorite Recipes of Kentucky Celebrities.” The recipe was for Snow Ice Cream and came from Emmy award winning meteorologist John Belski. John has been the meteorologist at WAVE-TV in Louisville for over 20 years. He likes this recipe because it is directly related to the weather and can make it feel a little like summer in the middle of winter.

In addition to being an Emmy award winning meteorologist, John has received various awards from community organizations and publications including being named Best Of Louisville by the readers of Louisville magazine for a number of years and has been named Best of Kentucky by the readers of Kentucky Monthly magazine and the LEO's Readers' Choice Award. John has received the Special Service Award from the National Weather Service and was presented the Mark Trail Award for public awareness of NOAA weather radios. This prestigious national award was presented on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.

His folksy, friendly style along with his weather knowledge makes him a favorite among viewers. Several years ago, John was among a select few TV meteorologists from around the country to be invited to the White House to meet with the President for a discussion on global warming.

If you would like to know more about John, you can go to WAVE-TV’s website and if you would like a copy of his recipe, you can purchase a copy of the cookbook “Favorite Recipes of Kentucky Celebrities” by contacting me at In the Louisville area, North Middle School in Vine Grove is taking orders for the cookbook as a fundraiser and it is also available at the Hadley Pottery Museum.

Remember the proceeds from individual sales of the cookbook goes to non-profit organizations in the Paducah area and the cookbook is available as a fundraiser for any non-profit organization.
