If last Saturday was about old favorites, this Saturday was about new stuff. I kicked off the day with a Strawberry Donut Delight from The Strawberry Patch. This tastes exactly like you think it would. Macerated strawberries, a glazed doughnut, canned whip cream, another strawberry on top. If you like all of those things, this… Continue reading Minnesota State Fair Part Two: Electric Boogaloo
Like many Minnesotans, I look forward to the state fair all year long. It is like Christmas for the food obsessed. It seems that everyone has something they wait all year to eat at the fair.

Most places offer three courses, but… Continue reading Restaurant Week at Cedar + Stone Urban Table
Reader, we have been sick this week. If you are also in the Twin Cities, you know that we also got our first blizzard of the season.
