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.

Black bean brownies are a very fudgy, healthier treat most people won't suspect.

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.

Maple sap was once such a huge part of life in this region. Maple sugar was a vital part of one's supplies necessary for baking, possibly brewing and anything we use sugar for today, so the season was very important for local families. I suspect it was a product that brought a great deal of joy to most households.

During winter, however, we can supplement our wood, propane or electric heat with food preparation, which is actually pretty cool. Not only can we add heat to the air, using a crock pot or steamer we can add moisture as well, something sorely lacking in the winter air. On those particularly cold days when it feels like the cold has soaked into our bones, we can even add a little spice to heat us from the core.

Ribs get a reputation for being chewy and full of tallow. I've already provided a pressure-cooker method (maximum pressure for 30 minutes) that solves both issues, but I recently got curious about other ways to render ribs delicious. PineandLakes.com Illustration

Never before had any of us seen fruit on it until one day I was walking the driveway at the end of my first summer back from college. There was a tree with big green orbs hanging from it. I looked and behold, a big apple tree just covered in fruit. PineandLakes.com Illustration
