Thanksgiving dinner - an honor and a challenge to host for the gathering of family and friends.  Golden, roasted turkey, all of the side dishes and fixings - then the pinnacle, for dessert enthusiasts, the perfect creamy rich pumpkin pie.  But what’s this!?  My Great Aunt, from afar, who has traveled the world and eaten in every culture, is coming and HATES pumpkin pie.  How can anyone dislike the spiced sweet mixture with a perfectly flaky crust where the only decision is - whipped cream or a sharp cheddar cheese slice on…

This special day comes around each year on November 15th.  It was originally proclaimed by the Governor of Minnesota in honor of Nordic Ware’s 60th anniversary, making 2015 the tenth annual Minnesota Bundt Day, while coinciding with National Bundt Day! It is the perfect time of year since most families are pulling out recipes, preheating the oven and baking more than ever!  In Celebration of National Bundt Day this year, we are hosting an Instagram Contest for everyone to share a photo of their very best Bundt® creations!

To enter the contest,…

At some friends’ cabin one autumn, our host served my husband and me a turkey breast she had cooked on the grill. It’s smoky, crispy deliciousness wowed us and we’ve never gone back to making turkey in the oven for ourselves. Because we love dark meat as well as white, we tried her technique with a whole turkey and it worked great. We’ve grilled small and large turkeys, though 13 pounds is about the largest our kettle charcoal grill will hold.

Here is…

There is nothing like bundling up on the couch in front of the warm fire with a big bowl of freshly made soup on a crisp day. It’s that time of the year to take out the stock pots and create your favorite homemade soup concoctions to ease those constant soup cravings and stock up for the week with easy meals. Making fresh soup from scratch is the way to go!  Not only is it reasonable, quick, easy, and healthy, but the options…

Gluten free baking always comes with its challenges. Living with Celiac disease for the past twelve years, I have grown to love experimenting in the kitchen with gluten free recipes and overcoming some of these challenges of using different flour combinations, texture issues, and dry, crumbly end products. I will admit that gluten free cooking and baking is a lot easier these days as Celiac disease, gluten intolerances, and general knowledge behind gluten are more widely known and  common resulting in more of a variety of…

September is upon us and summer is officially coming to a close as the last summer barbeques and outdoor gatherings are wrapping up in Minnesota. For many, this is a sad reality as the dreaded weather change is developing and just around the corner. For others, the excitement for Fall is here, which is one of the best seasons for food and flavor combinations! Yes, here at Nordic Ware, we celebrate the beginning of fall as we get to focus on our favorite warm autumn seasonal flavors using our amazing cookware and Fall Harvest Pans. Not to mention, the…

Summertime is perhaps the sweetest season of all to those of us who live in "the north". We endure 6 to 7 months of the year with snow on the ground, temperatures than can reach -25°F with windchills nearing -40°F on the darkest of winter nights. Spring and fall are short in Minnesota. Oh, but summertime---sweet, sunny summer. We enjoy more than 15 hours of sunlight per day in the month of June, accompanied by warm days and pleasantly cool evenings. The anticipation of these sun-filled long days is what sustains us through the gloomiest of days, when it is…

I am not sure about everyone else, but here in Minnesota… yes in Minnesota we have had one hot summer.  Many people tend to shy away from baking and cooking in doors but sometimes you just have to.  When this happens one of the best tools I have found that I have in my kitchen is my compact oven and my compact ovenware.  For times when you don't want to heat up your whole house or just want to make something small the compact ovenware comes in handy.  Also I have found that the compact ovenware is…

Ah, the classic chocolate cookie with milk. Combined as a cookies and cream dessert? Even better! Don't like cookies? (That's silly) Then try cake! Or Jello! That is what I thought when I saw this pan, but it didn't stop there. Oh no. The possibilities are nearly endless. I made it a goal, more like a mission, to use this pan for a whole day to make breakfast, lunch and dinner (don't forget dessert!). I then tested the presentation and recipes on my husband throughout the day. He was impressed, to say the least, that I could make all…

Introducing Flare Cookware with Fin technology! The latest technology for the kitchen, manufactured in America and the world's first energy efficent line of high-performance cookware. Flare was the idea of a real-life rocket scientist named Dr. Thomas Povey, a professor of engineering at Oxford University in England. Not surprisingly, many of the principles that he uses when optimizing jet engines for efficiency ALSO apply to cooking on a stovetop! So yes, there is proven scientific theory behind the unique finned design of the pan. Dr. Povey originally dreamt up the idea for Flare on a mountain climbing trip in the Alps. He…
