Bite Of Minnesota: Nuworld Cream SauceEvery so often, I visit the U of M Dairy Salesroom and pick up a few cheeses. Last time, I purchased a tub of Nuworld cheese spread. Nuworld is a cheese developed at the U of M and is considered a white "blue" cheese instead of the more traditional blue veined blue cheese.
Bite Of Minnesota: Habanero Hot SauceHave a hankering for hot sauce but can't seem to find a brand you like? Have you tried making your own? We grew habaneros in our container garden this year with the hopes of creating a hot sauce.
Bite Of Minnesota: Strawberry Goat Cheese SquaresOn 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.

Bite Of Minnesota: Summer Squash & Corn ChowderI'm not opposed to eating soup when it's hot out, especially refreshing soups like gazpacho, but something feels oh-so-right about making soup when the weather turns cooler.
Bite Of Minnesota: Celebration At Midtown Global MarketHaving 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.

Bite Of Minnesota: Fresh Spring SaladHere 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.
