Caramel Pecan Oatmeal Cookie Bars

While I am technically a “millennial” I don’t identify with a lot of the qualities commonly associated with them. I don’t take selfies. Well, I should rephrase that, I very rarely take selfies and when I do it’s of me and my daughter or husband. I’m also not technologically savvy in the least and often learn about the latest tech news from my father (I realize this should be the other way around but I have accepted that it is not and never will be).


Choux a la Crème with Bourbon Maple Chantilly Cream

Last night I had the pleasure of taking part in the Eat Local Challenge Farm to Fork dinner held at The Informalist. I can easily say it was the most fun I’ve had in months. Several of the most talented chefs in the Chippewa Valley (along with little old me) got together and created a six course meal with wine and cocktail pairings highlighting locally sourced ingredients from right here in Wisconsin. It truly was a magical evening in the kitchen and from what the guests said, it was just as magical for those who dined. **Photo credit goes to Kyle Lehman Photography for all the mouthwatering photos below**
