Writing and sharing food with friends is a delight, hardly something that warrants reprieve. However, even the work we enjoy benefits from our stepping back, reflecting, loosening our grip (or its grip) from time to time. It was hard to lay aside the routine of writing last week, though not completely unplugged from reading my [...]
Take a walk down Colorado Avenue in Old Colorado City and its charm invites you to relax and stay awhile. Sprinkled among the shops, select restaurants welcome neighbors and visitors stopping-in on a Wild West Dining Tour guided by Samantha Bruner of Colorado Springs Food Tours. Samantha provides historic anecdotes of the brick and mortar, [...]
Sometimes a previous post is worth resurrecting, revisiting something wonderful—Farmers Markets certainly qualify. I hope it is a refreshing reminder of summer’s offering. It is the height of the season for Farmers Markets in the Rocky Mountain region with various locations every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday in Colorado Springs.

Spring is our most fickle season as ladies schedule their pedicures yet keep their boots close at hand. Meal planning in the spring is tricky if your food-mood follows the forecast like mine. Comfort foods [...]
Our daughter loves strawberries. She knows it is important to buy in-season produce, so she looks forward to strawberry season like none other. Here in Colorado the growing season is quite short, so local strawberries are not available until June—this makes me thankful for California growers who can deliver this sweet treat in early April. [...]
Today’s Friday cookies are Snickerdoodles. Making cookies or any baked items in Colorado can be a little tricky. Our alpine desert can leave cookies crumbly or flat as a crepe if the flour isn’t just right. Not only do these cookies stay soft and moist, they are also made with whole wheat flour. I have [...]
