Super Bowl Recipes – Easy and Awesome

Last year Minnesota hosted the Super Bowl. Minnesota did not make it to the Super Bowl, which is no surprise. The Vikings did not make it this year either. That also is not a surprise. Odds are, your team did not make it to the Super Bowl, but you're probably still going to a Super Bowl party and you're going to need to bring something.

Walking Dead Recipes – Daryl’s Marinated Chicken

This week for Walking Dead Recipes we're doing Daryl's Marinated Chicken. The idea is to create a recipe using things that are likely to be available after living in the zombie apocalypse for two years (about where we are in the show based on Judith's age and not Maggie's pregnancy). I assume chickens would be raised both for the eggs and the meat. Since it

I'm starting a new feature called Walking Dead Recipes. This week's Walking Dead Recipe is Carol's Casserole.  Casseroles, or hot dish as we call them in Minnesota, are the perfect dish for those living in the zombie apocalypse.

Baked Reuben Dip

I've been making this Baked Reuben Dip for ever. I got the original recipe from my ex brother in law some 25 years ago. Originally the recipe called for sliced Buddig roast beef, and it was fine. However, I have found that using roast beef from the deli makes for a much better dip. The original recipe, at least as I learned it, was for

Instant Pot Ham and Wild Rice Soup

Happy New Year! This year I'm starting off with an Instant Pot ham a wild rice soup recipe. I make all kinds of soups during the holidays. Usually because there are so many leftovers from the holiday meals, but also because it's so damn cold. Currently it's about -14°. That's Minnesota, and that's why we make things like Tater Tot Hot Dish. It's also probably

Tater Tot Hot Dish with Mushroom Risotto

This recipe, Tater Tot Hot Dish with Mushroom Risotto, is a variation of the Authentic Minnesota Tater Tot Hot Dish. Like all great flukes it happened because I didn't read the recipe carefully and ended up with way too much liquid so I had to find a way to make it less soggy. I had a bag of Alessi Risotto with Mushrooms so I quickly
