    This week’s Heartland Cook has his hands full. Derrick Geringer has three hungry kids and a lot of leftovers. Unfortunately, those three kids generally don’t like leftovers – so Derrick has had to get creative. He’s transformed lack-luster leftovers into pizzazz on a plate. To make this dish even more unique, Derrick cooks his Chili-cheese dog Bacon Cheeseburger pizzas on the grill.Ingredients:Chili Cheese Dog Pizza:Pizza Crust1 cup canned chili1 cup shredded cheddar cheese4 hotdogs (sliced)...

SCOTT COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Saturday, "Laundry Baskets Full of Love" handed out 110 laundry baskets full of household and bathroom items to the elderly in Scott County.

The organization also gave them each a special Christmas Chocolate treat. They handed the baskets out in Sikeston and in East Prairie at the Prairie Grove Apartments.

Their goal was to raise $3,500 for the baskets, and they actually passed that and got $4,606.

Organizers say thanks to partners and volunteers, in the last year they delivered 138 baskets to families in need.

Organizers want donations to keep coming, because of 20 more baskets to be delivered the week after the event.
