Holiday Food Safety: STOP Tele-seminar on How to Eat Safely and Stay Healthy This Holiday Season

With H1N1 casting a shadow on all our social interactions, food safety is particularly important this holiday season. Not only do we need to think about how long that egg nog has been sitting on the buffet table – or left on the counter in the kitchen before it was served – we also need to worry about food handling and not passing along Swine Flu....more

Pumpkin Spice Latte & Frugalista Chic

Ahh... the holidays are upon us... Images of sugar plums dancing in our heads while dreaming if Santa Claus will be providing us with treats (or a big fat lump of coal) under our Christmas trees. Who am I kidding?! That is what I want.. those images on the books I read to my son at bedtime. ...more

Butternut Squash and Risotto Revelation

In need of a night out, the husband and I went exploring.  A new neighborhood sprung out of nowhere since we last lived in Denver, called ‘River North’ or RiNo for short.  So clever.  Blocks of industrial warehouses are becoming spaces for creative folk.  It was first Friday and the galleries were open. We started early and got to Fuel Café in time to claim the last table without a reservation.  Described as “garage-chic,” it’s located in the recently repurposed old Yellow Cab Taxi Headquarters building.  We had butternut squash two ways.  First, in the Winter Vegetable Salad in which it was shaved and raw.  It smells like pumpkin.  And here’s where I was going to say “but it doesn’t taste like pumpkin,” except that I’ve never actually tasted raw pumpkin.  So maybe they do taste the same.  Who knows....more

Monday Dose of Market: Toothache Plant and Tomato Reprieve

It’s snowing in Denver. Again.  This is not helping my portrayal of this city to friends afar as a place where it does snow, but always warms up and melts soon after.  It is helping me stay inside and get our new house organized.   And I’m finally cooking meals in the kitchen.  Last night I had a Colorado-raised, grass-fed beef burger.  With a juicy, red, ripe, perfect, pesticide-free and locally grown tomato from Honeyacre Farm.  Thank you Honeyacre. ...more

The kitchen in the center of this old house

I’m still unpacking in this new-to-me-hundred-year-old house in the redwoods.  Every now and then I climb onto a stool in the very large kitchen, stir some cream into my coffee, and count my blessings.  I’ve had galley kitchens, Pullman kitchens and whatever other glorified descriptions we use for “too small.”  One of my favorite memories is of my  first kitchen as a family lady.  It was a big, square room in a very small house.    ...more
