recipe: swedish pancakes ( for mother’s day or any day ).

odin made his mother a nice card for mother’s day and he also knows that one of her very favorite things to have for breakfast is swedish pancakes ( sometimes known as nordic pancakes ) which are more like crepes than your traditional north american pancake. odin created a handy mnemonic device to remember the […]

grill baby, grill!

after the salmon opener to the grilling season i thought it was prudent to turn to meat! scrounging from the fridge i topped the 100% grassfed organic burger with carmelized onions, garlic, a titch of jalapeno and topped it with organic valley feta and eventually doused it with worcestershire sauce. the flavors mixed perfectly!

Perfect Purple Moon Ice Cream!

some might recall i’ve been concocting purple moon ice cream which is my 100% organic homage to the froot loopy blue moon ice cream without the artificial food coloring, or other mystery ingredients. it took a few iterations but i’ve finally perfected the recipe. nearly everyone – young and old – who taste it, loooooove […]

my first attempt at creating a refreshing chocolate soda actually creates an exploding chocolate volcano.

as usual, after a 10 mile run of course i have some organic valley chocolate milk on hand for my refueling needs. only this time, i think, hey, how about making a nice, refreshing chocolate soda with my sodastream. the folks at sodastream even have a recipe, but that recipe involves mixing carbonated water with […]

90% chicago style.

i had a very specific craving for a chicago style hot dog. so i went to some effort to get all the ingredients from memory, or at least as close as i could get in rural southwest wisconsin on short notice. no poppy seed buns and i had to substitute pepperoncini for pickled sport peppers, […]

recipe: bacon popcorn with pasture butter and cheddar cheese.

how do you make bacon popcorn with pasture butter even better? with cheddar! it’s awesome. i have to admit this powdered cheddar cheese is not organic. i couldn’t find any organic powder when i was out and about so i compromised with non-organic. you can be certain i’ll be ordering a pound of the fronteir […]

recipe: bacon popcorn with pasture butter.

i saw a passing reference on twitter to bacon popcorn and i wondered how on earth i could get to my age and have never of heard of or tried two of my favorite things together. Ms6 has confiscated the bowl of bacon-fat popcorn because "Dad stop eating a handful at a time!!!" — John […]

recipe: maple panna cotta with peach coulis.

i was eating dinner at driftless cafe and finished it off with an excellent panna cotta ( i was reminded by the staff that they use organic valley half and half and organic valley heavy whipping cream which always makes me happy to hear ) and it made me wonder why i didn’t make a […]

recipe: bacon, blue cheese and jalapeno breakfast tortillas.

how do you make bacon and blue cheese breakfast tortillas even more awesome? with fresh jalapenos from the the cosmos organicos garden collective! obviously any jalapenos will do, but fresh is best top with a little sriracha sauce and you’ve got yourself a fiery flavor extravaganza!

recipe: peaches and cream ice cream!

we ended up getting hundreds of peaches off the tree this years, so i figured after the success with purple moon ice cream i’d try my luck with a peaches and cream recipe! it’s basically my regular vanilla recipe ( which somehow i’ve posted?! ) with this peach processing methodology. ingredients 1 1/2 to 2 […]
