Do you know what California is missing? Deep fried cheese curds. They don't even have them at the State Fair! How can you not have fried cheese at a state fair??? Here's my recipe:
Janelle's MN State Fair Deep Fried Cheese Curds recipe
(Not exactly like those at the fair, but close!)
- 1 cup flour
- ¼ cup corn meal
- ¼-1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 3 oz (1/4 -3/4 can) of beer
Mix batter (adding beer a bit at a time) until its a thick liquid consistency. Coat cheese curds in batter and drop into oil (about 375 degrees) about 5 at a time. Cook curds for about 1 minute (until they start to turn golden) and place on paper towel covered plate. Enjoy!

2005-09-07 17:17:52 Yes, I took that waterfall photo in Jiuzhaigou, a world heritage site in China. There were so many waterfalls in that park, it was amazing! —CarlMcCabe

2006-08-16 23:10:08 I'll have to give Sugar and Spice a try!! —EddieKim
2006-09-01 11:08:23 I'm glad the page was helpful! I was kinda surprised to realize there wasn't a whole lot about horses. A bit ironically, I don't ride, but have friends who do. If you check out any of those places, please post more info on the pages! I *have* had Buckeye Ranch recommended to me by a couple riders as a really good place. —AlphaDog
2006-10-13 17:43:54 Sugar and Spice was QUITE awesome, I must say!!! The owner there is very nice on top of that.... I'll DEFINITELY be back there!! —EddieKim
2006-12-22 14:49:43 Just a quick FYI — to see who uploaded an image, just click it! It's one of the newish features Philip added in May. For example, your photo shows "Uploaded by JanelleAlvstadMattson on 2005-03-22 13:05:54. Image size: 12KB" Neat, huh? —ArlenAbraham
2007-03-07 17:41:11 The AD page looks great! Thanks!! —ErikDaniells
2007-06-08 20:36:37 You'll have to update your profile now...since Neil is now no longer a grad student :) —JamesWilk
2007-07-21 20:20:25 Hi, Janelle. I appreciated your "plug" for Crossings on the GVCC page. Crossings sounds great! We'd probably be there if we were still in town. —RichLindvall
2007-09-26 23:40:09 Plays disc golf, drives a Prius, does yoga, and tries to live cheaply?! Wow, you're a girl after my own heart! Cool. Btw, for ice cream, I like the Ben & Jerry's Lighten Up! Cherry Garcia. Ok, so technically it's frozen yogurt, but close enough. Man, that stuff's addictive. —RonB
2007-10-05 11:09:02 Howdy, glad you figured it out. By the way... my wife and I were supposed to visit Ithaca for our honeymoon (as part of a slow off-highway roadtrip from Erie through southern NY state and then up vaguely toward Boston). Alas, somebody brought a nasty bug when they showed up and we spent our honeymoon sick for a couple weeks. We're hoping to do it next year: loosely planned byway travel is one of our favorite activities. —JabberWokky
