People we are missing the forest through the trees.

As I was scrolling down my Instagram feed seamlessly passing by pictures of holiday treats, sports highlights, meme accounts, and advertisements I saw a sponsored post that caught my eye. I don’t recall now who sponsored the post but the message of it was to advocate for the use of reusable bags when going grocery shopping; a good message to sponsor. The image depicted an individual putting a…

A Brief Look at The History of The Casserole
If you never heard of hotdish, it is a type of casserole that is very common in the states of Minnesota and the Dakotas. I am pretty sure that everybody I know, knows what a hotdish is. In fact, it is sort of mindblowing to me that some Americans may not know what it is. But, if you have heard of it and you think it is the same thing as a casserole, think again! As we discussed in the What is A Hotdish post, I…

A Culinary Christmas from Santa

by Granville Wood | .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) | November 14th, 2018

Ah! The holidays are rushing at us, like well like an out of control, careening caravan. Time to start thinking about what to get the chef in the family for Christmas. The days of a new apron or oven mitt are over, or are they?

An uber, cool canvas ranch style apron with leather straps for the grill God is more than a stocking stuffer and it will stretch the bank account, but well worth it. (Hedley & Bennett.com) Extra-long, silicone, cotton-lined oven mitts will serve to keep the busy…

FARGO--I’ve been fortunate enough to grow up in Fargo during a time of growth and cultural development. One thing I’ve been holding out for while watching Fargo boom is diversification of food culture. Okay, to be honest, I’m talking vegan friendly food culture. My parents and I have been riding vegan and vegetarian diets for as long as I can remember. Luckily for us, many restaurants downtown have finally started coming up with…

If you are a parent of a child in the Fargo Public School (FPS) system, like I am, chances are you send your son or daughter off every morning with little or no thought about what they are going to do for lunch that day. We know they will eat, because we paid for lunch for the semester, or made arrangements to make sure their bellies are full, and they can concentrate on learning. But how much thought do we as parents give to the who,…

A community living room

by Sabrina Hornung | .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) | September 26th, 2018

There’s something to be said about a good bar. There’s a recipe and there’s more to it than grabbing a stool and getting soused but you can do that too. There’s often some sense of fellowship or community there, especially when everything else that seems familiar seems to be rapidly disappearing. I’ve come across a few towns where the local watering hole is the last business standing -- even outlasting houses of worship.

In our August 8 cover story, “Red River Rainbow…

As I sat across from my wife at Himalayan Yak Tuesday evening, it dawned on me that time had slowed down. So often when we go out to eat, we are in a hurry. We get anxious when we aren’t greeted instantly. We want our drinks ASAP. We want to sit, order, eat, and go. And we want to do it as quickly as possible. That wasn’t how my experience was at Himalayan Yak. I had to slow down and take in the experience. Instead of the usual hurried meal, we were…
