Kringle and eggnog: This could be a match made in heaven. So when Racine-based O & H Bakery – a kringle champion in my book – released a special version combining the two, I had to get it on it stat.
Luckily for me, they dropped one off for me so I could get a first taste of this new delectable. And it is oh so delicious.
The Danish kringle is literally layer upon layer of butter – up to 36 layers! This special kringle has a smooth custard filling blended with eggnog and then topped with creamy frosting and crisp gingersnap cookies.
Hopefully you will go out and grab (or order) one soon – though maybe Santa will bring you one? It is the "official state pastry of Wisconsin" after all. Be merry, Milwaukee.
What else? She's a wine lover, closet trashy novel reader, beauty supplies addict and devourer of cheese (shocker for a Wisconsin born and bred girl, right?). She's also a bit of a foodie, which is a word most of you hate, we know. So, you've probably seen her at one of the area's newest restaurant openings (and yes, she will share her opinions good or bad) or enjoying her newfound love, the Dark and Stormy, at a local pub.
All in all, Carolynn's a believer in positive thinking and will do her best to smack down your negative ones while writing about her city, her loves, quests and more.
