It’s not day drinking if it’s recipe testing.
Making it Midwest is a way for me to share my recipes with family, friends, and the world!
It’s not day drinking if it’s recipe testing.

I can’t stop baking these dark chocolate chip pumpkin cookies🤤🎃 and I need everyone to make them too.
I tried it out in bread form this round and think I might like it even better! Also used Hu Kitchen dark chocolate baking gems and it made them extra extra chocolatey and delicious.
If you haven’t seen this before it’s the easiest recipe ever. It’s just one box of spiced cake mix, one can of pumpkin purée, and chocolate chips. I baked mine at 325 for 15 min.
Oh? I must try these new ones!
It’s like Thin Mints’ sister cookie.
Had this the other night! It was 🤤

Ahh this looks heavenly 🥰
It’s a beautiful day to enjoy a slice of our Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake in the garden!
Six Degrees and Keefner’s, it’s too much for my heart to handle!
Keefner's will close at the end of July unless the restaurant is sold to a new owner, according to owner Angie Keefner-Grieser.
Cheese Burger Salad - yay or nay?
I’m a fan of eating the bun but also a fan of getting those greens and love a good salad!
Also, everyone in the Midwest right now not turning on your ovens, this one’s for you! 🥵☀️
Burger sauce/ dressing—->
Diced onion and equal parts Mayo and ketchup (like thousand island dressing).
Add everything into the salad that you would to your burger. Tomatoes, onions, crunchy lettuce, avocado, bacon, endless options here! What’s not optional is a burger straight from the grill with a slice of American cheese! 😋
Grocery shopping is my hobby 😁
I’m really excited about the Aldi pizza dough! Will give a report back after I toss a pizza in the Ooni. Equally excited about the Mango Pico.
Making it Midwest through the years 🥰 🎂
Three years!! I can’t believe I’ve been sharing my food with the internet for three years. Lots of sizzles, flips, spills, and salt baes - and so much more to come. Sometimes I get dissatisfied in what I’ve yet to accomplish with my platform in this time, but hell I’ve done a lot and I’m having fun and that NEEDS to be celebrated! 💃🥗🍻https://www.instagram.com/reel/CezdXsGgBUC/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

The moment we’ve all been waiting for 🍧
In case you missed this truly mouthwatering masterpiece, The Foundry has replaced the smoked brisket with bbq pulled pork 🤤 the same delicious mac and cheese but this time with house made bbq and pulled pork, topped with beer pickled red onions, shaved parm and garlic breadcrumbs.
[this also means the smoked brisket Mac and Cheese pizza is off the menu as well.]
Stay tuned for more new menu item features! In the meantime, A&F’s tap list, brewery/kitchen hours, + The Foundry’s updated menu can be found here ⬇️
Hats off to ya for this one man

Taste like General Tso’s but way wayyy healthier.
These chicken meatballs are so versatile, you can throw them on salads, have them in stir fry, put them on top of pastas, or just dip them right into sauce like nuggets.
1 package of ground chicken
1/2 cup ground saltines (10 saltines) (I use my magic bullet for this)
1 tbs hot sauce, sambal, or sriracha
2 tbs olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon any seasoning you want ( I used an Italian blend but seriously any spice works.)
💥Roll into small balls, place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper, and bake 400 degrees for 25 min. These should be browned when done. These don’t come out full of flavor, their actually quite bland but the sauce it what makes it.
1tbs tangerine marmalade (or honey and splash or orange juice).
2 tbs soy sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon ghee or butter or toasted sesame oil.
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sambal or sriracha
💥 Mix everything together on a the stove top in a sauce pan. Taste this and make sure it’s sweet enough for your taste, if it is not add more honey or marmalade.
💥 Extras: top with everything but the bagel seasoning and green onion.
