The Lowcountry Foodie seems to have spent time in the Twin Cities, where she developed a love for wild rice soup.
In fact, this soup was one of the first things my husband ever served to me before we were married. It's created and sold by Lund's and Byerly's grocery stores which are based out of the Twin Cities. The soup comes frozen and you slip it in a pot of boiling water on those nights when you just can't bring yourself to produce a home cooked meal. After moving to the Lowcountry I suffered without it and craved it constantly.
I wonder if she ever had Axel's version? If you ever find yourself in the frozen white North, be sure to check them out.

Tartlette, always a dangerous blog, is dedicated to cranberries.
Well, in this case it was not one solo cranberry that preoccupied my day but rather 4 pounds of the mighty berry!...and I did not even host Thanksgiving dinner. When November comes around and the market stalls are covered with ruby red, plump cranberries and pomegranates I think I lose it. These are relatively new to me as when I left France 10 years ago I knew only of"airelles", a smaller relative (and the only way I had had a pomegranate was in a "grenadine")I have made up for lost time since them and prepared traditional cranberry sauce and used them in upside down cakes and cobblers.
OK, lunchtime for me. Enjoy.
