About a year ago, we started to hear the name Molly Yeh pop up in conversations all over Fargo-Moorhead. This was a name that was always followed by sugary words like sprinkles, cakes and icing - a combination that clearly spurred admiration from child bakers and grown-up foodies alike. What could be so different about her baked goods that people everywhere seemed to be discussing them in-depth? Oh, and it wasn't just her sweet treats, it was her hotdishes too. Yep, you read that right, hotdishes. Somehow, this local was creating a throw-back phenomenon in the world of foodies.
After a bit of following her crumb trail through the vast expanse of social media, to her farm in East Grand Forks, we finally understood the growing interest. Not only is she adorable, humble and cultured, she's also wildly and artistically talented. In other words, seeing is believing. So, if you haven't checked out her award-winning cookbooks, food blog, or brand-new Food Network show, Girl Meets Farm - now's the time to get to know our neighbor to the North.
In other exciting news, we are making huge strides in expanding our distribution. In addition to the F-M area, readers can now find Midwest Nest in grocery stores throughout Grand Forks, Wahpeton, Breckenridge and Fergus Falls. We even have a few select locations in Detroit Lakes and Bismarck. With my publisher's family from Grand Forks, and my own from Fairmount (just south of Wahpeton), making sure magazines get to our entire region is a mission that is near and dear to our hearts. Special thanks to our family and friends that have volunteered their time, mileage and efforts to make this possible.
Next month marks our one-year anniversary and we couldn't be happier to share it with our readers. Although we rarely need a reason to throw a party, this is a pretty great one. Stay tuned as we will soon be announcing our upcoming celebration.
As always, thank you for reading!
