Charlie

He’s always around and folks are always curious. Yup, he’s a straight-up, standard poodle. He’s obsessed with anything small that’s rooting around the yard: squirrels, rabbits, Apollo, the neighbor’s cat. He’s smart as a whip and more than a little bossy.

Chef Tammy Haas

Cooking has been a lifelong passion for Tammy. She started manning the stove at her family’s North Dakota farm at age 15, having proven herself useless on the tractors ?. She’s been cooking ever since, even when she was partially distracted by careers as an intensive care nurse (five years) and trial lawyer (23 years)….
