Molly Eng, Left, and Olivia Eng

Meet this darling, mother-daughter duo. Molly has been a resident of Colfax since her family moved here in 1985. Before living in Washington state, her family lived in Carson City, Nev. Molly said that she always enjoyed the smells of the high desert but dreamt of living in a place with green rolling hills, a big red barn and dirt roads. She has found exactly that, right here on the Palouse. Molly and her husband Eddy have raised all three of their children in Colfax: Cori, 27; Ysabeaux, 21, and Olivia, 13.

Molly enjoys spinning yarn with her spinning wheel. It allows her to be creative and loves the variety of textures and materials that she can work with including silk, alpaca, wool, and even a mix with some sparkle. Molly said her favorite medium to spin is alpaca. She shared that you can purchase yarn in the stores but it is all uniform. She said, "When you spin it yourself, you can let your creativity loose and have several variations and textures."

Olivia is the youngest child at home and enjoys spending time with her family as well as her friends. Olivia said her favorite activities include relaxing and watching YouTube video clips, but she doesn't have nearly enough time for that.

During the school year she is involved in playing the piano in Jazz Band. She also plays the clarinet and guitar. Olivia loves to play volleyball and also ran track last year. In her spare time, she is often found cooking in the kitchen with her friends.

Olivia is excited about starting high school next year and looks forward to the future and attending college. She hopes to attend WSU or BYU and dreams of becoming an architect. Of course, that is subject to change, since she is only 13 years old, but she loves to draw and design. Olivia said her favorite thing about growing up in Colfax is that you get to know everyone.


Chicken Curry

Crushed garlic

Green onion


1/2 Cup chicken stock

1 Can coconut milk

1 tsp. peanut butter

1/2 tsp. starch

1 Tbsp. sugar

Brown the thighs. Add 'A' ingredients. Any fat at the bottom of the skillet will bring out the flavor of the aromatic herbs. Just as garlic turns yellow, deglaze the skillet with two cups stock and 'B' ingredients. Simmer a few minutes. Salt to taste. Serve over rice.
