‘Eat Well – Travel Often – Live Happy!’
Have Fun Exploring, Reading and Sharing!
Enjoy Our Blog. We try out all the products we review and have traveled to the places we write about. The recipes we feature, and the many cups of coffee we drink during the day, have been prepared in our own kitchen.
Jager Foods Shiitake Soups, the company, was first created in 1985 by Nick’s parents on their farm in Minnesota. At one time they had four local ladies and Grandma helping in the soup kitchen, mixing the ingredients and packaging the soups. The soup business was very good for a while. You could find the four distinct flavors of Jager Foods soups in local grocery stores, and specialty stores as well as gift shops all over the country. Sadly, Shiitake mushrooms grew out of favor in the mid-90’s and sales declined dramatically, forcing them to close the soup kitchen.
We created a website and tried our hands at reviving the soup business a few years back. Trying to sell the Jager Foods soup mixes, we found out very quickly that we were much better suited for writing articles filled with tips, ideas and life experiences.
Today we share our favorite recipes, write about our frequent travels, review products and restaurants, provide DIY tips and try to entertain our readers as best we can. This food and travel blog is also a way for us to share life with our families that are spread across the US and Europe.
Thank you for visiting… and don’t be a stranger now.
