Steak Salad with Mashed Potatoes, Pesto and Gorgonzola Cheese

I originally posted this dish almost 6 years ago; so long ago that I had actually forgotten it was buried in the archives. It was a post celebrating my 15th year of putting recipes online, yikes! Not only posted a long time ago but not made since then either and that is just wrong. While working

Citrus Rum Punch

Citrus and Rum Punch - Perfect cocktail for the Super Bowl!

Citrus Rum Punch - Perfect cocktail for the Super Bowl!

 

Yes I did make this just for the Super Bowl and I won’t deny it might wear the colors of my favorite team but it’s funny; I’m not as stressed about the outcome of this game as most rabid fans might be. Of course I want Peyton (my cat’s namesake even!) and the Broncos to win but I spent 10

When I think of the kind of food that we’ll find all over Denver on game day for this year’s Super Bowl; it’s most likely going to have a lot of Mexican influence. I’m not sure I’ve ever been to a Super Bowl party without guacamole and chips, maybe some tamales and most definitely a margarita of

I received an invitation a few weeks ago to a new local restaurant, Tocabe, an American Indian Eatery. While there is a location near Denver that was featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, this new space in Greenwood Village, CO was located near my old home, only a half hour

Adult Mocha Shake with Strawberries

Adult Mocha Shake

My dilemma today? Valentine Cocktail or Super Bowl Cocktail? Both are important and since I LOVE the Broncos I went with this Adult Mocha Shake with Strawberries…next week though I’ve got a fantastic party punch with oranges of course so stay tuned! Heck if you’re having a Super Bowl party and

Did you ever decide to make something that sounds good, sure…but the end result is SO much better than the expectation? This was certainly one of those times for me. This weeks theme for The Food Network’s roundup that I participate in is Mac and Cheese and this recipe for Green Chile Macaroni

We’re backkkkkk. It’s Progressive Eats time and after a sabbatical over the Christmas season, our crew is ready to gather together and share some of our favorite recipes again. This month our group has been challenged by Lana with the blog Never Enough Thyme to take a trip down Memory Lane with

Broncos Orange Crush Cocktail

Broncos Orange Crush Cocktail

Broncos Orange Crush Cocktail

We’ve been here before; last year actually. Seems we can make the playoffs but the big game alludes us. I’m hoping that’s not true this year. I love the Broncos; they are well known as a great organization. They won’t tolerate a lot of crappy behavior on the part of players (and some have been d

Bacon and Caramelized Onion Potato Salad

Last week I saw Heidi from the blog Foodie Crush mention that she had an older recipe for potato salad on her blog that was suddenly very popular. Of course that happens, one outlet or one person mentioning a blog can see visitors explode. I think more interesting to me was the fact that it was

Have you heard? The Broncos are headed to the playoffs for the AFC Championship this weekend! They’re playing the New England Patriots; proud owners of the ‘deflategate’ drama so I say, look out for anything boys! I don’t typically plan my Sundays around the game but I’ve usually got it on and t

Spicy Tex-Mex Chicken Soup with Jalapeno and Cilantro Dumplings

When I first starting discussing the potential of working with Swanson® as a Brand Ambassador a few months ago, I knew without a doubt that the one recipe I would make would be my Chicken Soup with Dumplings; it is a 30 year work in progress and one I wanted to update and share. While we have b

While winter seems to start with the first hint of snow, we know that officially it’s not until December. Still, for those of us in Colorado I think of real winter as January and February. It’s not about the snow but the biting cold. It doesn’t help that I am a died in the wool, staunch conserva

Don’t you love it when something good for you is also really good? That’s certainly the case with this Roasted Vegetable Pasta with Goat Cheese. It’s simple, filled with great veggies and while seasoned with a bit of olive oil and garnished with some goat cheese; that’s it. I could have eaten th

Pear, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad with Maple Dijon Dressing

Pear, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad from Nordstrom's Cafe

I first posted this recipe for a Pear, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad seven years ago so it seems perfect timing for an update. I was using a point and shoot camera on the verge of dying and only had pecans in lieu of my beloved walnuts. So it seemed appropriate when I made it again yesterday that

Rosemary Collins

Rosemary Collins - Gin, simple syrup and lemon are transformed with a hint of rosemary.

I don’t know about you, but after the holidays I think most of us are thinking leaner and healthier after the season of, let’s say, abundance (gluttony is such an ugly word right?). For me that includes cocktails. I sure loved the Vanilla Bean Eggnog with Bourbon that I made this past year but y
