Happy Mother’s Day weekend! We’re entering one of my favorite periods of the year, as spring heats up to summer (despite a mountain hailstorm or two) and our little town comes alive with equal parts Denverites and tourists from around the world.
Colorado is teasing us with the first hints of camping season and I’m more than ready! The promise of long hikes, cozy sleeping bags, and smoky campfires is an irresistible escape from our day-to-day routine.
Buttery toasted couscous studded with sweet cherry tomatoes might just be the side dish that literally goes with everything. Steak?
Are we done with soda bread? I say not yet, because soda bread has to be the original easy bread recipe.
Caramelized onions are one of my favorite additions to almost any meal. Pizza, burgers, even soups all become richer, deeper, better when topped with naturally sweet onions.
Our very favorite butter masala trades the usual chicken for fresh paneer cheese! With a rich, savory, cashew-thickened tomato gravy and a generous splash of spices, it’s no wonder we never manage to save any leftovers.
There’s nothing better than fresh naan bread with homemade curry, so why not combine them into one delicious plate! As much as I love bread bowls of soup, naan bowls filled with hot curry have my heart.
Paneer cheese is what makes Indian favorites like saag paneer and paneer curries so incredibly delicious! It’s almost a crumbly, extra-dense version of ricotta, milk-sweet and perfect for soaking up all the flavors in sauce.
Sweet chocolate gelato drowned in boozy amaretto and steaming espresso is the perfect balance of hot and cold, sweet and bitter! Part after-dinner coffee, part nightcap, I could dive straight into this glass.
Impress your Valentine with this brilliantly garnet beetroot risotto with creamy goat cheese & earthy thyme! This dish is packed with a whole pound of fresh beets so it’s light and refreshing, not at all heavy like most thick, cream-based risottos.
