Consider Making Mom Dinner With This Easy Mini-Lasagna Recipe

I love the taste of lasagna, but the fact that we’re currently training for the half marathon  has us watching what we eat to keep the weight down. When I found this recipe that is made in muffin tins with those little won ton wrappers instead of thick lasagna noodles I though I’d give it a try. They are fabulous and I made them for my sister and brother in law who immediately asked for the recipe and will be making it regularly. You want easy to make and easy to share? This is it!

Devoted dog owners will often swear that their pet somehow understands them. My Grandma June would say, look, just by the way she tilts her head, I know she understands me. We would all roll our eyes. Man's best friend turns to the dark side when they know we are looking away or we are gone.

Duluth East Culinary Student Moving On To Nationals [VIDEO]

I can cook if it comes in a box and there's instructions.  I have always been in awe of chefs that just pour, taste, season and use words like demi glaze and balsamic vinegar reduction.  I was hoping reduction meant taking the calories out, but that's a no go.  We as a community should be so proud of one culinary student at East High School and there's a place you can go to eat the deliciousness that he and the other culinary students have prepared.

What Happens Behind The Gates Of Upper Lakes Foods In Cloquet? [VIDEO]

Upper Lakes Foods in Cloquet is celebrating their 50th anniversary of business and after meeting with the family and getting a tour of the facility I wondered how many people know the thought that actually goes into what they do to ensure the utmost freshest and timely delivery of food. It’s interesting to find out the timelines they have when food arrives and is stored to when it is placed on the truck for delivery. Pallets as high as the eye can see filled with product; freezers, refrigerators as big as whole rooms and bags of carrots and fresh produce that are incredibly huge.

Gordy’s Hi-Hat Takes You Behind The Counter [VIDEO]

Oh yes I did and I was thrilled!  My family has been going to Gordy's Hi-Hat since the day I was born, literally.  I was born at the Cloquet Hospital which is blocks from Gordy's Hi-Hat.  My father got tired of waiting for my arrival and left for lunch.  While he was AT Gordy's I was born and they had to call him back.  Gordy's has countless fans because they know exactly what they're getting when they walk through the door.  Delicious hand-crafted food made with customer satisfaction in mind.  But, have you ever been on the other side of the counter?
