Saint Paul, Minnesota

If you think of “Prairie Home Companion,” Jell-O salad, and hot dish when you think of Minnesota cuisine, you’re way off the mark—at least in the Twin Cities. Minneapolis and St. Paul are part of a vibrant Midwest dining scene that’s second only to Chicago. Although the region was settled by Scandinavians drawn to the timber and flour mills, you’ll be hard-pressed to find Norwegian or Swedish restaurants these days now that Marcus Samuelsson’s Aquavit has closed. New immigrants, from Somalia, Laos, and Mexico have changed the local culinary landscape. Minneapolis is the younger, hipper sibling, with cutting-edge restaurants and architecture (check out the new Guthrie Theater overlooking the Mississippi). St. Paul, the state capitol, is the clean-cut traditionalist; famous Summit Avenue residents included F. Scott Fitzgerald and timber magnate Frederick Weyerhaeuser.

About me:
I'm a little new to recipes. I've always just "guessed", as I let my knowledge of the "science" of food and cooking (as well as my tastebuds) lead me. I rarely follow recipes, and have seldom disappointed myself, and find that disappointments are easily corrected. I believe my success in the kitchen is due to my love for good food, my desire to please myself and others, and the lack of the common belief that food will cook itself. It takes effort and care! I'm seeking out recipes now only to expand my horizons by finding base ideas for some new and different foods to experiment with.
