We had a great time at the Kickapoo Country Fair over the weekend! Great food, great people and a beautiful setting. We got to sample tons of Organic Valley products, which is always fun. I love their milk! I got to sample some Maple Syrup (yeah!) and got a yummy iced maple latte from Kickapoo Coffee. YUM!

I missed Michael Perry since we went on Saturday, but heard he was amazing. Did anyone else go? Tell me about it!

Kickapoo Country Fair

Are you in Wisconsin or another part of the equally beautiful Midwest? Looking for something to do this weekend? Go check out the Kickapoo Country Fair! The Kickapoo Country Fair is held on the grounds of Organic Valley in LaFarge, Wisconsin, in the heart of the Driftless Area. The fair is a sustainable foodie's dream. There are workshops, a bike tour, music--including Miles Nielsen, authors--including one of my very favorites, Michael Perry, kids activities, food sampling, farm tours and more.

The Best Pancakes!

Do you have fresh blueberries or raspberries and you are wondering what to do with them? Besides eating them plain, making smoothies, jams, pies, etc.? :)

Do yourself a favor and make these awesome raspberry pancakes. They are amazing! The raspberries taste fresh and sweet. The pancakes? They are light and get crispy around the edges--just the way I like them! Thanks to Driftless Appetite for the recipe!

If you are a coffee fanatic, do yourself a favor and pick up some Kickapoo Coffee. Amazing. It's organic, fair trade and local, for me anyway.

I highly recommend the Driftless Dark.

And how cool are the containers?
