August Supper Club at The Groves. Celebrating all things MN State Fair with dinner on a stick.
Loved our views, conversations-(always full of life, vulnerability and lots of funny), delicious food, and our tour around Prior Lake. For the girls that braved it in the water after sunset 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Thanks Groves for hosting, and Lisa you are the best of captains. #lakelife#mnstatefair#thegreatmngettogether#dinneronastick#ladiesnight

Today I completed something on my bucket list. I made a piece of crop art and submitted it to the Minnesota State Fair today! It was an experience for sure. I’ll post a picture of my entry on Thursday! #cropart#mnstatefair#seedart
Today was drop-off day for @creamofthecropartists at the @mnstatefair! I’ve put on almost 1,000 miles in the past week, and I am TIRED, but I’m looking forward to seeing you on opening day of the Fair on Thursday! We’re located in the West End Market by the Schilling Amphitheater.
Is your mouth watering yet? Looking forward to seeing you all Thursday at the @mnstatefair!!
#mnstatefair season is upon us, and I know it’s all about #foodonastick and wacky food combinations, but I think it’s worth remembering that you will never beat the 1970s for really weird-ass cuisine. #bonappetit

Refillable water bottle? Yes! Skateboard? Nope. @fairfanatics Kat and Sasha let you know what you can - and cannot - bring to the #mnstatefair. We’ve teamed up with @uptopfilms to present some how-tos and important information to know before you hit the fair.
The fair before the fair, when there’s time to appreciate how much the corn-dog planter really looks like a corn-dog with lots of relish. 4 days to go! #mnstatefair
Yesterday I submitted my Salted Caramel Apple Pie to the Minnesota State Fair! I’ve been wanting to do this for a while but I’m usually on vacation with my family during this time of year so it hasn’t worked out until now! It was a really fun experience standing in line with hundreds of other bakers also hoping to take home the blue ribbon! I can’t wait to see which talented pie-connoisseur wins!!! 🤩
A few of my past winning cakes I found in pictures from a Google search. The first picture is last year's first place for white cake (Raspberry Almond), the second picture is 2016's first place 3 or more layer (chocolate raspberry) and the last picture is 2015's fourth place white cake (I took a couple of years off of entering this one after 2015 and spent that time tweaking the recipe and getting your feedback before trying again). #StateFairBaking#MNStateFair#Best12DaysOfTheYear#MindyCakes#StPaulMN
Peaches at “Peacebunny Cottage” — what we call the family farm where our lineage that comes Paxton Peacebunny lives. Pax is the name of myfirst rare bread rabbit and the alpha male rabbit in the colony. That’s why everything is called Peacebunny — that’s the last name of the rabbits in my Rabbitry. I’m so thankful for all the volunteers through STEMbunnies educational nonprofit who help take my rabbits to events and help train the comfort rabbits. Without all them and the countless experts who have weighed in as we develop our models, this would still be four rabbits at my Twin Cities suburb house....which would be good but not nearly of the scale or fun. You guys rock!! Www.PeacebunnyIsland.com
