Home Is Where the Havarti Is

Wisconsin is cold. Just the name of the state conjures images of snow, ice fishing and other cold stuff. And perhaps due to this extreme temperature, the people of Wisconsin know how to be warm. Their homes are cozy and you will instantly be offered a blanket and the story of how the owner’s favorite aunt knitted it for the arrival of a grandnephew.

Wisconsinites always have a story

Stepping into the charming NorthWoods Cheese Haus in Papillion is very similar to stepping into your aunt’s home. I was almost surprised not to find a fat cat and a giant over-stuffed couch on which to sit while chatting with the owners, sisters Diana Rayment and Darleene Evitch.

Noshsense

Have you ever had a conversation with someone who is sitting on the precipice of a life-changing moment? It certainly makes for an interesting conversation, and can be a particularly animated conversation if there’s caffeine involved.

When I sat down to chat with Jill Lemen about her Noshsense bars it was obvious that this is a woman on the precipice of many life-changing moments ahead of her.
