Some have spicier sauce, some have more cheese and still, some people are more interested in what kind of crust the pizza has. Thick, thin, stuffed, rubbed with olive oil, such a variety to choose from. For us, we try to stay middle of the road price-wise, but still look for it to be tasty and “put together with care”.

The DECC Shows Commitment to Sustainability with House Made Chips [VIDEO]

This year the DECC and the Arrowhead Home and Builder Show are both celebrating their 50 year anniversary. There has been many changes at the DECC throughout my lifetime, from the name change of the Duluth Arena to the DECC, to the addition of the Amsoil Arena, to the daily quest to utilize sustainability. One unique thing they are doing to be  sustainable is frying, seasoning and bagging their own chips.

Epicurious Magazine Draws Criticism For Publishing A Recipe Using Refrigerated Crescent Rolls

What is happening to the culinary world?  A year or so ago, I reported that Bon Appetit magazine drew the ire of the food world for publishing a recipe for "Dorito Bread".  At the time, many called out the publication for "dumbing down" its creativity to appeal to the lowest common denominator.  Now it appears that another revered cooking journal is seeing similar criticism.

Super Easy Hard Baking Eggs Instead of Hard Boiling [VIDEO]

I recently started "baking" my bacon, instead of frying it.  It's not as messy, suppose to be healthier and gives me 15 minutes to get the rest of the meal prepared.  I have never tried baking my eggs in their shell, until now.  Here's my results.

Cathy Kates Forced To Use Unusual Dip At Boat And Travel Show [VIDEO]

My most favorite flavor of potato chip is Sour Cream and Onion, followed by Doritos.  Then it's a three way tie among BBQ, Sun Chips and Cheetos.  See the trend, all with flavors.  The DECC makes it's own potato chips, LOVE the crunch, but it needed something (besides salt) and my resources were limited.

How Long Do You Think You Can Keep Meat In The Freezer Until It Goes Bad

I'm skeptical.  I'm the kinda girl that has a three day limit on leftovers.  I ran out of salami and hummus, my two staple lunches so I dug around in the freezer and found a package of fully cooked brats.  While I was putting that and a tortilla (that's what I was going to use instead of a bun) I noticed the expiration date and wondered if I should just go hungry.
