Anchovies are small, green fish with blue reflections due to a silver-colored longitudinal stripe that runs from the base of the caudal (tail) fin. The anchovy eats plankton and recently hatched fish. Anchovies are found in scattered areas throughout the world's oceans, but are concentrated in temperate waters, and are rare or absent in very cold or very warm seas. - Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anchovy

I cooked all through college with almost exclusively those two (cast iron) pans, one a skillet with around 2-inch tall rims and a round griddle that has since then been my favorite for cooking eggs and burgers.

When I was a kid, these berries may have ripened at different rates. You had strawberries for a week; juneberries for a week at the same time as blueberries, which could actually last into the fall in some places; raspberries coming at the tail end of the blueberries (lasting maybe a couple weeks); and blackberries ripening just after the raspberries.

I had an idea for a product that would make at-home pasta production simpler using an equally simple tool that most hunters in our area already have. We even have companies in the area that could produce such a product. PineandLakes.com Illustration

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.

I've been wanting to write a recipe column about something other than food for a while, but I needed more recipes than just homemade playdough. Recently, I came across just such recipes. There should be enough here to enjoy all year long, indoor or outdoor. Fluffy slime image courtesy thebestideasforkids.com

Gnocchi is a simple pleasure, so long as you aren't making a homemade version. If you aren't familiar, gnocchi are noodles, or dumplings, made from potatoes and flour. Homemade gnocchi has a subtle flavor from ingredients that can include Parmesan, and I once had a recipe with a hint of nutmeg.

South of Backus, swans float in frigid water and rest on the banks of the Pine River near where it flows under Highway 371.
