Aunt Henrietta

Written by

Hello, again! It’s Margie Johnson, the owner of the Hot Dish Heaven Café, with more news from the Red River Valley of Northwestern Minnesota.

I just got home from visitin’ my aunt Henrietta, don’t ya know. We moved her into the nursin’ home a few weeks ago, after it became clear she couldn’t stay at home, even though Hester, her sister, lives with her.

Yes, you read that right! Snicker Salad!

Try Hestor’s delicious cherry dessert.

A lady at the Olympics asked Ole, "Are you a pole vaulter?"

Hot dish for those looking to try something a little more "exotic."

So good some people call them Seven-Layer "Magic Cookie" Bars.

Also known as Brown Sugar Rice Pudding.

A Minnesota classic.

Pizza and hot dish? A twofer recipe that's sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.

Comfort food so good you'll think you're at the State Fair.
