Rockford, Illinois is one of those midwest towns that surprised me with its love of art, culture, and food! A huge thank you to the folks of Rockford, Illinois for hosting me during my time in this wonderful midwest community. Rockford’s Swedish heritage instantly connected with my Norwegian bloodline. I’m all about traditional Swedish pancakes, and the Stockholm Inn did not disappoint. With a side of bacon and scrambled eggs, I was one happy camper.
