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…

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…

If you were a fan of Seinfeld you will never forget one of the classic episodes called The Dinner Party but if you’re like me you still refer to it as the Chocolate Babka story. It all happens around a trip to Schnitzer’s Bakery to pick up dessert for a dinner party which ultimately is decided will be the glorious Chocolate Babka. The line at the bakery is long, no one’s picked a ticket and the last Chocolate Babka is sold to a couple attending the very same dinner party before Jerry and Elaine can claim it.  Madness ensues. It…

Throwing together a batch of chocolate chip cookies is second nature to me. However, whipping up a batch of “healthy” chocolate chip cookies seems to require a bachelor’s degree in culinary science. Unfortunately, that is not what I went to school for. Luckily I do spend majority of my free time in the kitchen baking. I happen to know a thing or two about healthy cakes and other various desserts but healthy cookies are not my specialty. Meaning I threw out more pans of awful tasting cookies than I kept during this process. I spent hours looking at recipes online for…

For some quick drama at the dinner table, you can’t beat popovers.  When these puffy, golden, odd-shaped orbs emerge from the oven you look like a genius in the kitchen! And they’re really very easy to make, once you have the right recipe, the right technique and the right pan from Nordic Ware.

When I first began making popovers, I did some research (I confess, sometimes that’s as much fun for me as the baking). I discovered that most recipes are very similar. After all, there are…
