On Sunday morning I made a mad dash for Lorence’s Berry Farm in Northfield and picked 16 pounds of strawberries just before a storm came through. The fields had plenty of berries to pick and they were large, juicy, and delicious.
Last year I talked about the new salmon share offering from Sitka Salmon Shares and we loved it so much that we renewed again this year and have been enjoying our monthly salmon deliveries throughout the summer.
A few years ago I was a guest on the Fresh and Local Show on AM950 along with a talented blogger and photographer, Susan Powers.
Walking into work this morning, I was convinced it was Thursday. As I warmed up my oatmeal I opened the paper to look for the Taste section (a regular Thursday activity) but couldn’t find it.
Amidst all of the election buzz, we still have to eat. As much as I’ve been craving tacos, chips, and even Jucy Lucys (thanks, WCCO web staffers), I’m trying to stick on the healthy path this week.
Walking around the markets recently, I’ve seen an abundance of produce, which is quite exciting. However, in just a matter of weeks, the bundles of greens and the bushels of tomatoes will be hard to […]

Having a birthday at the beginning of September means it easily flies under the radar. With the start of school and new schedules to be settled into, I never expect much in terms of birthday parties or celebrations.
In preparation for the long weekend, I put together my to-do list and a top priority is planting.
Here in the Midwest, we are on a roller coaster when it comes to weather. Granted, spring is usually unpredictable, but switching from rain to snow and back again has taken its toll on crops in the area. Most farmers are 2-3 weeks behind in the growing season, so even though we’ve seen 80 degrees this week, we still have some waiting to do.
We’re getting closer and closer to joys of spring in Minnesota. I went to the Nicollet Mall farmers market on Thursday and while it was only the second week, the market was hopping.
Being a northerner for most of my life, I only hear about southern foods like chicken and waffles, pickled watermelon rind, and collard greens. It isn’t too often that I get to experience them.
