Get Healthy in 2014 With Taste of Home’s Kale & Bacon Salad with Honey-Horseradish Vinaigrette Recipe

Even if you didn't verbalize "getting healthy and exercising more" in 2014 as a New Year's resolution, I'll just bet it's in the back of your mind.  My resolution this year was "to take the time".  Stop procrastinating and take the time to do the things I need and want to get done.  Ken, my co-host asked what "things"?  IT could be anything!  From including more time with friends and family to finally cleaning the craft room.  But, one of my "things" is to also provide a healthier diet for my family and Taste of Home will be a big part of making that happen in 2014!

UW Extension Provides FREE Classes in Climate Change Adaptations for Agriculture

Growing up in Wrenshall gave me the opportunity to learn a lot about agriculture through friends like the Laveau family.  Dairy, crops, livestock of all kinds and I loved having "chores".  I'm sure they thought I was nuts!  If you are a farmer, agriculture producer or involved in local agriculture business you may be interested in a presentation on agricultural adaptation for climate change in the northland.   It's free of charge and will give you valuable info to help in the success of your livelihood.

Homemade Pickle Recipe That Cathy’s Crazy About

My mom for the last few years has been making home made pickles.   They are so good that it just isn't the same when we go buy store bought pickles.   It's all about the brine, and this brine is perfect for making pickles.   I also made some pickled eggs with it and they were delicious!

What Is Veganism? Would You Consider Becoming Vegan Like Carrie Underwood and Ellen DeGeneres?

We have a friend who is vegan.  When I asked what that meant, he said he doesn't eat anything with a face.  I guess that's true, but I had been hoping for a more technical answer.  I wanted to know the difference between vegan and vegetarian.  I don't know if I could do it, but I've heard of so many health benefits, I thought I'd research it and even borrowed a vegan cookbook to see if anything sounded good.

Hunter’s Delight Venison Taco Pie Recipe from Taste of Home

My daughter's birthday dinner was at grandma's house last night.  Corned venison was on the menu.  I didn't try it then, but took a baggie of it to work this morning so Ken could try it.  He MADE me try it too and ya know what???  It wasn't that bad, tasted JUST like corned beef.  With MN and WI deer hunting seasons over, I thought I'd look for other possible venison recipes that I think would have a taste that I wouldn't mind.  Taste of Home's Venison Taco Pie looks yummy! What's your favorite venison recipe?

Wow Your Overnight Guests With a Special Breakfast the Day After Thanksgiving

I have always resorted to an "egg bake" when I have overnight guests.  It's something I can whip up the night before and throw in the oven the next morning.  But, this recipe from Taste of Home is too unique and sounds too yummy to pass up this year.  It's a five-star recipe that got rave reviews.  I'll be a one-upper on myself this year!  If you have holiday guests spending the night WOW them on Thanksgiving and now for breakfast the day after.

How to Prepare Your Thanksgiving Turkey, Roast or Deep Fry There’s Benefits to Both

The tradition in my family has always been to roast our Thanksgiving turkey, then again, turkey deep fryers weren't around yet (insert "older than dirt joke" here).  I have traditionally stuck with that form of cooking a Thanksgiving turkey, but after tasting Ken's deep fried turkey and hearing so many more people choosing that mode of preparing their turkey, I'm beginning to change my mind.  Do you have a preference?

Attend the Project Joy Backpack Program and Help Feed Northland Children

I was embarrassed and astonished to learn of how many Northlanders there are that are in need of food.  Not just during the holidays, but on a day to day basis.  I learned that many of them are our neighbors and many are children.  The late Patrick Plys and his family saw the need and with their direction, ambition and passion, the Project Joy Backpack Program was introduced in our area.  You can help by attending the Project Joy Event or by volunteering your time.
