  • Harvesting and processing fresh horseradish root is a tradition in Amy's community. Amy invites her neighbors over for a horseradish-spiked feast: Beef Stew With Red Wine, Mushrooms and Horseradish Cream, Roasted Shrimp Wraps With Homemade Cocktail Sauce and a sprawling Bloody Mary bar.

  • Bologna Days has been occurring weekly in Amy Thielen's parents' Minnesota hometown since the 1960s. It's a celebration of hot ring bologna -- all you can eat -- coming fresh from the smoker at Thielen Meats, operated by Amy's cousins. This is a show about lake cabin food, which includes Midwestern Fried Bologna, Peppered Pork Loin and Parmesan Sandwiches on Grilled Flatbread and Fried Onion Dip.

  • The Midwest produces some of the most influential and commonplace cheeses in the country, and in this episode Amy Thielen celebrates the wide, comforting world of cheese dishes. Few can resist the charms of Crispy Cheese-Curd Risotto Cakes served with a side of Cherry Tomato-Arugula Salad, Best-Ever Cheese Soup and Hank's favorite Stovetop Mac and Cheese With Bacon.
