- Chickens, and Pigs, and Dairy Cows – OH MY!Minnesota is home to a wide variety of agricultural animals that provide us with food and many other items we use every day! My daughters and I thought it would be fun to highlight two breakfast ideas that include products from three Minnesota-grown animals – chickens (eggs), pigs (Canadian bacon) and dairy cattle (cheese). We gathered these ingredients and were ready to try out some tasty recipes and use our new Egg Bites Maker and Breakfast Sandwich Maker. These kitchen gadgets are courtesy of my aunt Pat Schweitzer who works with Hamilton Beach as the consumer test kitchen manager.
- Garden Harvest – Cooking up tasty treats!I hope everyone is enjoying the summer! If there is one positive to come from the summer of 2020, I would have to say that besides the extra time with the kids (most things cancelled) my garden is looking the best it ever has! And I have been harvesting lots of yummy, fresh veggies for my family. I would love to hear what you have been growing in your school and home gardens as well. Please share in the ‘Leave a Reply’ section at the bottom! We would LOVE to hear from you.
- Honey and CropsBees have always fascinated me. And because I love to learn more about the world around me, I wanted to learn more about the business of making honey. Hence, “making honey” is part of our current virtual ag tour. Along with honey, I also am intrigued by the ingenuity used by farmers on their crop farms.
