Ammonium Carbonate?

Mom's was also hard as a rock and suitable for soaking in coffee or milk. so it sounds like you made them the right way. :)

Thanks for the tips on finding the product.

Ammonium Carbonate?

Is Ammonium Carbonate available in the metro area? Apparently, in a google search, its also known as Bakers Ammonia. I don't need much, 2+ ounces mailorder seems a waste.

I grew up with a springerle recipe that used it ( a cookie, German, I think), and I'm wondering if it is available so I can revisit my childhood by baking this recipe.

Mom went to the local pharmacy for it ( I didn't grow up in MN)

Pubs/bars with the NFL Sunday Ticket

Give Sarna's a call (University and 41) Decent food and many TV's though I don't know what teams they play/favor. They've been willing to turn on a Lynx play off game in the midst of other 'important' games.

The Lowry Café

cool. Glad you enjoyed The Lowry Cafe.

I had the AYCE fish fry Friday night. The batter was amazingly light, the fish tasty. Much much better than the fish fry I've had at other places.

Any Good New Restaurant In MPLS?

The Lowry Cafe at the corner of Penn Ave N and Lowry ( south west corner) is new since May 1. Good solid food. Had AYCE fish fry Friday night. Lightly battered. Wonderful. Much better than the battered fish we had across the river a while back.

Had a great Buffalo Chicken Salad tonight.

Cheese-making stuff

I saw cheese making supplies at Midwest Supplies ( home brewer). Check under other products on their web page:

They opened this past weekend to much fanfare within our neighborhoods. It is great to have this café serving really good food.

The pork tenderloin sandwich is lightly breaded in house. The meat was thin and very flavorful. The breading was light and crunchy.
Fries: skinny, appropriately crunchy and lightly salted. Very good.

Buffalo Chicken Wrap: Wonderful. Chicken was flavorful, the buffalo sauce didn’t over power the entire wrap. Served with fries.

Breakfasts I've had, so far:
Biscuits and Gravy. Nicely flavored gravy topping light and fluffy biscuits. You get a choice in the number of biscuits.

Eggs Benedict: Awesome béarnaise sauce, lightly seasoned and delicate. Eggs were perfect, Ham, tasty

Bottle beer and wines are also available.

Others are raving about the omelets and about the dinners. I’m looking forward to trying more of their meals.

What is minneapolis's signature dish?

so, what is the historical foundation for any area's signature dish? Why did THAT become their signature? And, then, what would our historical piece be?

I think its been said earlier, if you ask outsiders what they would consider MN signature dish, it would be PowderMilk Biscuits and catsup, a la Praire Home Companion.
