Sure, with the internet and social media, certain small town history gets recorded in other places, but not so thoroughly as one would find in an official publication. Years from now the bound copies of the PineandLakes Echo Journal will remain one of the most reliable historical records for Pine River and Pequot Lakes out there, maybe one of the only records. Such is the case for Pine River 75 years ago as well.

The first recipe I tried needed a bit of amending and ended up being a cross between my old standby and a "spicy" meatloaf. It originally called for sriracha hot chili sauce, which I did not have on hand. So I replaced it with hot sauce and it ended up having a nice spicy flavor without being overpowering or extremely hot.

A simple internet search showed dozens of recipes where a chicken is "baked," yet with a few simple seasonings has the taste and juiciness of a store-bought rotisserie chicken. So even if you can't make your chicken spin in circles, there's no reason this recipe can't be prepared at home.

One tradition many families enjoy during the Easter season is to dye hard-boiled eggs. They are often bright and colorful, adding a nice touch to the dinner table, and are good tasting too. Hard-boiled eggs are very versatile, as well as being low cost and filling. Whether you decide to eat them by themselves, chop them on a green salad, make egg salad or make deviled eggs, be creative and enjoy. PineandLakes.com Illustration

The fun part of the twice baked potato is your added ingredients. These can be pretty much anything: cheese, olives, parsnips, kale, mushrooms, artichokes, chili, bacon, chunks of ham or chicken, green peppers, onions. Almost any vegetable works well in this recipe. PineandLakes.com
