Gastronomi Klonowski: We must be nuts

April 14, 2016

The Minnesotan spring is finally upon us! In the past few weeks we saw the outbreak of shorts and flip-flops on campus that tends to occur each time the temperature tops 50. Now, highs have jumped into the 70s, and the spirit of...

Gastronomi Klonowski: Valentine’s Cake

February 12, 2016

Even as large (and old) as I am, I’m still a big sucker for stuffed animals. Their fluffy cuteness is NOT something to be underestimated or taken lightly. I’d be the first to admit I still sleep with a beloved stuffed puppy ev...

Gastronomi Klonowski: Spicy Sriracha Chicken or Tuna

February 5, 2016

Gastronomi Klonowski: Muffin with attitude

January 29, 2016

Welcome back to your second home in the frozen North and to a brand new semester of Gastronomi-Klonowski! If you’re as excited as I am to hit the kitchen and cook up some good grub this Spring, you’re probably fooling yourself. An...

Gastronomi Klonowski: ‘Tis the season for pumpkin pie

November 20, 2015

By Klonowski tradition, Thanksgiving is very much a family affair. When I say that, I don’t just mean a big meal shared between me, my brother and our parents. I’m talking ten relatives who balance their crammed plates on...
