North Dakota

Situated between Montana and Minnesota, North Dakota is named after the Dakota Indians of the Sioux Nation, who once followed the bison across the northern Great Plains of America. This is high plains country, broken up by lakes that provide sport fishing, particularly for walleye, perch and northern pike (the official state fish). The Red River Valley is North Dakota’s most fertile farmland; particularly important crops are wheat, beans, corn, and soybeans. After railroads opened the Dakota Territories to settlement, large numbers of Northern Europeans, particularly Germans and Scandinavians, settled the area, encouraged by the Federal government to populate and farm the land. The culinary traditions that have grown up in North Dakota reflect this history. North Dakota is called the Peace Garden State, which refers to the international garden planted in 1932 on the border with Canada to symbolize the longstanding friendship between the U.S. and Canada. Fittingly, the word Dakota means “allies” or “friends” in the Sioux language.

About me:
Recently married. Like to surprise my husband every once in awhile with a homemade meal. Used to work in a food warehouse for restaurants, so I'm used to getting a lot of stuff premade and just needs to be warmed up. So it always nice to show people that I can cook also.
