I will be enclosing a gift box but bagging the kuchen in gift bags. If you want, you may make the gift box when you receive it or you may want the samplers for yourself and have no interest in the gift box. I am finding it hard to find the right cooler to fit a gift box. Thank you.
We are now located at 1993 37th St. NE Larimore, ND 58251 We do not have a land line here, so we don’t have a Fax machine nor do we have a e mail at this time. We are in the process of setting up a new e mail. If you need or want to order kuchen please text me at 701-521-0481 or call Ken at 701-521-0480 As soon as my e mail is restored I will post a message on my website. Thank you! Karen

We are finally rested up from taking two vans down to my hometown of Ashley, ND where I spent all but two years growing up amongst the Germans from Russia. So much has changed in 46 years, yet it hasn’t. Main Street is the same except for different stores, less cafes and less bars and only one grocery store. When I was growing up we had the cutest little place where you could buy the best malts for 50 cents. My Dad used to take all the quarters out of his pocket and tell me to get some malts, so away on my bike I went and I don’t know how I manage to steer my bike home and carry malts but I did it. They had a good bakery back then too and the day old bread was still good. We had 4 grocery stores and I love to go with my Mom to buy grocerys and back then you got the glasses and saucers in the oatmeal containers. There was all kinds of interesting stuff in grocery stores back then. I can still smell the German sausage being made and the recipe was secret of course. Then another grocery store had half grocerys and half clothing and they had section where they had hats that the ladies like to wear to church and we like to try on if we could get away with it. Before the new Rexall Drug Store was built they had a small drugstore and it was long and narrow. We had a big cafe where you could order a brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Or an ice cream sundae in the special ice cream dish with chocolate drizzle over it was to die for. Is it any wonder I love collecting ice cream items. Then there was a brick post office which is still standing today, empty but I rem. going there to get the mail with my Mom and you had to rem. the combination or go to the window and ask for your mail. I rem. someone lived upstairs in the old post office and they hung their laundry out to dry and it always fascinated me how they got lines way out in mid air-I still wonder!
The old Coast to Coast store where my Dad bought us bikes. Mine was green with Coast to Coast written over one of the bars and my sisters was red. She had training wheels, I did not–and she refused to try and learn. Being the big sister I am I took off those training wheels and told her she could do it. She was so proud when she rode her bike to meet our Dad coming down the road. Then there was another hardware store where my Mom would send me to get some sewing machine needles from a blue and white wheel that held all the needles. We had car dealorships on Main Street and John Deehr Implement which my uncle managed. We had bowling alley where we went as a class to bowl. We had an old Ashley Theatre where popcorn was a dime, pop was a quarter and put the bottle back in the container when you left, and the movie was 50 cents. So you could go to a movie back in the 1960’s for less than $1.00. Gas was cheap too and we had gas stations on all end streets of Ashley. Everyone except kids talked German and at Grandma Delzers house that is what the aunts would chapper in-so frustrating because we couldn’t understand what they were saying. The school is larger now as they has added a Grade School onto the High School-still I walked past my old locker-least I think it was number 167. Our classmates all looked different as we are older now, ready to retire and some have done so. Some of us have grandchildren going to proms-yikes. With my cousins and his gal friend and my husband we set up our tent off of Main Street in Ashley and sold kuchen beside the corn dogs and lemonade stand. There was Kase Knefla, Fleishkla in trailors across from us as well as all the other good foods you find at outdoor events. It was fun to stand back and watch all the action going on, trying to recognize people with my cousins help and visit with those I knew. Meeting new people was eventful. One day it was cool, the next day windy and rainy, the next day hot, but all in all we survived the weather. Afterall we are hardy people.
It is exciting to see what an enterprise you have put together–Congratulations! Loved the kuchen! We loved the Sugar and Cottage cheese and thought the Banana Creme was delightful too. But it was the Sour Cream Raisin that stole the show. It isn’t a flavor our family used for kuchen but only for pies. Especially, thank you for making the kuchen available to everyone in our reunion classroom–such a nice touch–good to see you

It has been awhile since I have been on my website! I had a super busy Dec. with the POD Show in Bismarck and many online orders. My Mom, who taught me
how to make good kuchen, died Dec. 1st. We were prepared as she had been in failing health, but when it happens, it is quite a shock. Her BD was Dec. 18th
and she would have been 91 years old. I know she would have never wanted to live in a NH for 10 years the way she did, but she was so well taken care of at
Borg Home in Mountain and later at Sunset Home in Grafton. I used to stop when going thru Grafton from Grand Forks to visit a bit, so it now it’s a bit
difficult to drive thru Grafton knowing I will never see her alive again.
January has been really busy too with store orders. I am thankful for those.
I want to refresh my kuchen flavors, so have been trying new flavors. You would think 62 of them are enough, but I just enjoy trying different fruits and ideas. I have come up with Blackberry Kuchen, now that Sams Club carrys the Blackberrys. I was also able to try Honeyberrys and I am so impressed with this fruit it isn’t funny. The kuchen taste like I poured honey in the custard, which I could never do because it would be one big mess. The Honeyberrys are purple and add a lot
of color and make the kuchen taste like honey. Very very good! I won’t be able to get the berrys until late summer. Another new flavor is Aronia (Black Chokeberry)
not Chokecherry as I thought of at first, but Chokeberry. Again, purple in color and just great tasting. Even Ken, my husband likes this new flavor. I don’t usually come up with 3 wonderful flavors like this, but I got lucky in Jan. Maybe my Mom has been helping from Heaven? I will have these 3 flavors at the POD Shows starting in Sept for the Dickinson Show. I will have the Blackberry available as of now. If you want to order kuchen, you can go on the secure site at ND Mall which will bring ND products up on your screen and you can find me on there under kuchen, you can go to Etsy and order, you can e mail me or use the order blank on
my website-we will have to call you for payment information. Happy Winter!
