Supposedly we're going to be experiencing the unwelcome return of the polar vortex this week, so over the weekend we had to soak up all sunny, summertime flavors that we could handle. This quick-melting treat is tart, tangy, and just a touch creamy, hand-made daily at one of the Twin Cities' favorite post-beach pit stops.

The weather turned tropical over the weekend, inspiring us to not only get out of our own sweltering kitchens but to lean into our predilection for exotic tastes and textures, too. This week's guess where is the representation of all those requirements: complex, fresh, and hearty yet light.

We may be getting ready to celebrate our own nation's independence this weekend, but a few days ago we were celebrating this iconic dish of an entirely different faraway land. It might just look like a bunch of oddly-shaped, colorful globs on a plate, but when all these elements come together it makes for a very festive bite.

We spent the last two weeks scouring both our fair cities for the best in breakfast food. But as it turned out, double digit days of stuffing our faces with eggs, hash browns, pancakes and Benedicts, just wasn't enough time.

When you're already stuffed to the gills from a night of fine dining, resisting the dessert menu should be a no-brainer. And yet, suddenly there you are with that thin slip of paper in your hand, mulling over the choices. Maybe you'll just share with someone, you think. Maybe we can split something small, you tell yourself.

And then this dish arrives, and all bets are off. Promises are forgotten. Friendships and family ties fall to the wayside. You learn very quickly that when it comes to this dessert, it's best to just order your own.

We've loved this eggy appetizer since we were kids, but a sophisticated and colorful twist elevates the picnic standard to another plane. The ambiance in this particular establishment is cozy, dark, and chic, but the bright colors of this treat shine through. Can you guess where we enjoyed these?
