The idea of making pizza dough might be intimidating or just plain time consuming to some. The recipe below is a one that doesn’t take any pre-planning or overnight rising of the dough. It’s an awesome recipe, that is perfect for the grill!

Today, after years of experimentation and surpassing all doubts, Summit Brewing Company has become Minnesota’s most beloved beer. Read more

We had experimented with Wisconsin beer brats with pretzel buns… and let me tell you, I will never go back to a normal bun! Being from the Midwest we love our football, but I must say I am secretly one of those people who really comes for the food and commercials! In honor of the 50th Super Bowl quickly approaching, I thought that I would share my pretzel recipe with you!

The best part about pretzels is that you can make any shape that comes to mind! Seriously, feel free to go crazy and let your artistic side break through! Read more
