The Times seeks nominations for 2014 Unsung Heroes: The Cullman Times is seeking the community's nominations for our annual list of Unsung Heroes that will be published in our 2014 Profile edition.
Do you know someone who deserves recognition for civic or church work, community service or dedication to an activity or organization? If so, please nominate them as an Unsung Hero.
We're seeking the people who display unselfish acts of kindness, courage or generosity that make Cullman County a better place to live and work.
To nominate someone for the recognition, write us a note that describes what the person does or did that is so special. You cannot nominate yourself.

Recipe for a good breakfast:
Not excited about the same old toast and cereal breakfast? Here’s a tried-and-true recipe my children used to enjoy on cold mornings - its easy and delicious! I came up with this recipe when I was out of bread and didn’t have cereal in the house.
1 single serve prepared pie shell from your grocery store per person
1 large or two small eggs, scrambled well
1/2 tsp. Hormel real bacon bits
1 pat of butter
Smattering of finely shredded cheese to taste
Heat oven to 400º (if using toaster oven, don’t preheat). Spread butter over pizza shell, pour on scrambled egg. Sprinkle on cheese and bacon and any herbs or seasonings you desire. Place in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. Egg should be cooked through and not wiggle when pan is gently shaked. Let stand five minutes, then cut like a pizza for easy eating.
