If you don't have visitors yet this week-- you will. Inevitably, something will be forgotten on the grocery run. It's probably something as mundane as a container of French Onion Dip. This Caramelized Onion Dip can be brought together with a variety of ingredients involved in the traditional American Thanksgiving with a little time and effort. Serve as an appetizer or as a welcome addition to any game day spread over the course of the holiday week, and you'll be a hero.
Summer of 2023 has given rise to a number of new restaurant concepts in the Green Bay area, and among the newest of these is Vintage Rose Bakery and Sandwich Shop in Lawrence. A short jog off the Scheuring Road exit on I-41, it’s not in the first place I’d think to find breakfast. Most of the businesses in this portion of Lawrence are corporate centers and manufacturing, less so restaurants and shopping. Vintage Rose fills a necessary role for some of the local neighborhoods, however: local coffee and housemade food.
If you’ve got a hankering for a special Breadsmith loaf that you can’t get at the grocery store, consider stopping into their Holmgren Way location next time you feel called to Bay Park Square. You can find their hours and daily specials on their facebook page to plan your trip best and try something new. Their Cheddar Sourdough made for tasty grilled cheeses and egg-in-a-basket vehicles all weekend.
I don’t eat heavily, and I live alone. Cookbooks that often include recipes to serve a family of four are too much for me in my current life. In all of the recipes I have tried while cooking from Make it Japanese, I come out with smaller portions of leftovers than I have while trying recipes from other sources. I am learning how to cook simple, worthwhile foods from Rie’s culture and her current lifestyle as a new mom. I’m not wasting my time.
