Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookies

I now think of chocolate chip cookies as wintry fare, but in childhood, I vividly remember them belonging to summer: They were stored in a clean gallon ice cream bucket with a vicious plastic snap top, into which we kids dug repeatedly, blindly, fishing around until we felt the melting eye of a chip before tearing off outside with a few in hand.

Recipe: Midwestern Fried Chicken And Gravy

Compared to Southern fried chicken, Midwestern-style fried chicken offers different joys. Both are a treat, of course, but when I recall the pan-fried chicken of my Midwestern youth, I remember the gravy being the star.

Bite Of Minnesota: Whole Wheat Blue Cheese Crackers

We’re just a couple of weeks into football season, so it’s time to think about dishes that are easy to eat while watching the game. Football season or not, we tend to graze in our house on Sundays, using up odds and ends of what is left in the fridge and pantry, so we’re well conditioned for the graze-fest that the football season brings.

Bite Of Minnesota: Freezer Breakfast Burritos

If you’re like me, workweeks are hectic so breakfast has to be easy. As much as I’d love a hot breakfast in the morning, my hot options are oatmeal at my desk or grabbing a breakfast sandwich from the cafeteria.

Bite Of Minnesota: Zucchini Tart

It was a busy weekend at the market with an abundance of colorful produce at every turn. Crates of melons, bushels of tomatoes and peppers, and plenty of green made up the color palate as I walked the aisles of the Minneapolis Farmers Market. After making the roasted sun gold tomato sauce last week, I had to make another batch for my upcoming book club/birthday celebration and was on the hunt for sun gold tomatoes. Luckily I found them at Rolf’s Produce and dashed home to make more sauce for one of my favorite zucchini recipes from 101 Cookbooks.

Bite Of Minnesota: Strawberry Simple Syrup

Remember all those strawberries I picked a few weeks back? While most went into the freezer for future storage, I used a few cups to make a variety of simple syrups for drinks. It’s a simple way to spruce up beverages (hence the term “simple syrup”) and so easy to make.

Bite Of Minnesota: Spring Sangria

Hosting a party can be a lot of work and is also quite rewarding to see your hard work pay off. The key is to allow time to enjoy it yourself. To cut down on busywork during the party I try to prep as much as I can ahead of time so I can get out of the kitchen and mingle.
