New chef at Kinsloe House

Emily Hines is a local caterer in Corsicana. She was born and raised in the area and graduated from Mildred High in 2009. She has always had a passion for cooking, and decided to start her small catering business in 2010. With the help of Todd Jones and his family, she started catering out of the Two Doors Down Coffee House kitchen, and did most of her catering events there. She learned most of her cooking skills from her Great Granny, Nanny, and Mom, who are all three excellent cooks, and Emily said without them, she wouldn’t be able to pursue her dream. Emily loves being involved in her community as much as possible. She volunteers at the Warehouse Living Arts Center, and has been in numerous plays and musicals. When the opportunity came along for her to be chef at the Kinsloe House, she was very excited because she knew she would be able to share her passion for good food with many of the ladies that reside in the Corsicana area. Emily said, “Everything I do is for God. He has blessed me in so many ways, and I thank Him every day.”

Kinsloe House

The House Committee, headed by Marsha Banks and Clara Hickerson as co-chairs with committee members Cecelia Alexander, Kim Boswell, Marsha Cameron, Cindy Erwin, Seley Fuller, Holly Gibson, Lynda Green, Paula Jones, Carolyn Krejci, Shirley Nussbaum, Ruth Scott, Arlene Stewart, and Lynn Taylor, present a fantastic luncheon on Wednesday, Sept. 4. Nancy Smith, local book reviewer, will provide a delightful and amusing look into “The 101 Most Influential People Who Never Lived” by Lazar, Karlan, and Salter. This is a collection of characters in fiction, legend, movies, and television, from King Arthur to Perry Mason to Barbie, who not only entertained us but have shaped our society, changed our behavior, and even affected our history.

Not only will this review be light-hearted with laughs galore but it will also be a perfect opportunity to meet Kinsloe House’s new chef, Emily Hines of Mildred.

Due to the Labor Day holiday, we are asking attendees to make their reservations or cancellations by Friday, Aug. 30. Please call Kinsloe House at (903) 874-5791 or send an email to kinsloehouse@yahoo.com.

Again, we hope to see a large crowd as this will be our first luncheon with our new caterer.

The Kinsloe House hosts the September first Sunday luncheon at Kinsloe House on Sept. 8, 2013. Because the first Sunday falls on Labor Day weekend, we will hold the luncheon on the second Sunday at the regular time, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The luncheon will consist of a spring fruit salad, entrée choices will be basil honey mustard chicken or French onion pork chop, creamy mashed potatoes and glazed garlic green beans, and chocolate heath trifle or French vanilla latte cupcake.

This will be the first Sunday luncheon with our new caterer, Emily Hines. Please make your reservations and meet our new chef, and visit with friends.

Your  reservations must be made  by noon, Friday, Sept. 6 by calling the Kinsloe House at (903) 874-5791, giving your choices of menu and time of reservation or email your reservation and choices to kinsloehouse@yahoo.com.

The Thomas Meredith Chapter, Colonial Dames XVII Century

The Thomas Meredith Chapter, Colonial Dames XVII Century, will attend the special United States Constitution luncheon at 12 noon at the Kinsloe House on Wednesday, Sept. 18. Chatfield native Robert Jones will be the speaker for the special event sponsored by the James Blair Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution.
