We headed over to Bowlus, MN to spend some time at the Syrup Ranch. Mike owns and operates the Syrup Ranch right in his backyard.
As Winter comes to an end, that’s when Mike goes to work. Luckily, he had a little time to show us around! Have you ever wondered how pure maple syrup is made? Mike tells us all about how he started his company as well as how he makes his award winning syrup!

The biggest struggle for individuals seems to be meal planning. Typically, dinner is the hardest for most families. With activities in the evening and coordinating when everyone will be home, planning dinner can be difficult.

I’ve thought a lot about this blog. Slow Cooker Quinoa has kind of had me stumped.
Quinoa was the subject of my first blog over two years ago. I didn’t want to go down that same research based path again. I’ve already told you about its origins and stellar nutritious powers. Also, I don’t do a whole lot of crock pot cooking anymore. Crock pots and slow cookers are a great appliance when preparing food for families and pot lucks. Cooking for one and crock pots don’t really go together.
I have a small 1.5 quart crock pot that is a pretty, bright yellow, so I pulled it out and set it on my kitchen counter hoping its cheery look would inspire me. It didn’t. So I left. It was a beautiful, sunny Saturday in October with temperatures hitting the low seventies, not a day to be inside making up recipes. Also it was a perfect day to work on my biggest project.
Let me start out by saying, this is NOT an egg bake. Granted, there are eggs in it, and you do bake it – but it won’t be tasting anything like an omelet. This French inspired dish screams brunch and tastes amazing with a smooth velvety texture. It’s pretty awesome, and won’t cost much to make. In fact, I saved a ton using all Food Club products and the taste still surpasses any quiche I’ve ever had.
