All American Berry Buttermilk Shortcakes -

When considering a patriotic dessert for July 4th or any summer meal frankly, Strawberry Shortcake is a classic in most households.  The strawberry is rivaled only by the tomato as the summer produce poster child, showcasing the highest sweetness when naturally ripened.  Paired with light, flakey shortcake (not to be confused with shortbread or sponge […]

Raspberry Pandowdy |

Have you ever driven along a country road and seen a sign for fresh produce?  Did you wonder about it?  Did you stop and investigate?

Fresh Peach Sour Cream Coffee Cake


To me peaches are the quintessential summer fruit.  Their ripeness signals the height of summer produce.  And I don’t know anyone who can resist the soft bite followed by dribbling juice.  Truly the nectar of the Gods. We have a miniature peach tree in our backyard.  It is miniature in size but the size of […]

Ball Park Nachos and the Ultimate Nachos cookbook Giveaway!

Ball Park Nachos -

I personally don’t know anyone who does not like nachos.  Of course everyone also makes them almost identically; corn chips, cheese, maybe some meat and/or beans, salsa, sour cream, and guacamole if it’s a big night.  What if I told you there are not only multiple ways to make them but internationally inspired versions?  Breakfast […]

Plum Slump

One unexpected benefit I found shortly after beginning my blog was connecting with like minded food people all over the world.  One such find was Caroline who writes ‘All That I’m Eating’ hailing from Berkshire in the South of England.  I’m now not sure how I found her but it was like looking into a […]

Discovering the Original Frito Pie in Santa Fe and Breakfast in Taos New Mexico


The planning for my virtually spontaneous Panhandle-Plains road trip dead ended in Lubbock Texas, leaving a question of the route to be taken back to Colorado.  I love a good loop, preferring not to repeat a route if avoidable.  Somewhere between Palo Duro Canyon and Lubbock I caught wind that the first Frito Pie known […]

BL Food Road Trip: Carlsbad, NM


 Real pit barbeque from Danny’s Place, a local favorite! Carlsbad New Mexico is less than an hour from the Texas border and barbeque has made its way into the mainstream of this little town as a staple.  After shaking off the alien invasion of Roswell we enjoyed a few hour drive to our day’s […]

Salmon Tostadas -

If you’ve ever visited a famous landmark you may have experienced the almost surprising impact of seeing it live.  It looks the same as the photographs you’ve always seen but there is something different, ‘larger’ and more stunning about it in real life.  The Grand Canyon is no different; it’s simply awe-inspiring. A land feature […]

Palo Duro Canyon and Where the Locals Eat in Lubbock Texas


If I told you I just spent 48 hours staying here…… Would you envy me or think I had been incarcerated?  Three words: Off-The-Grid.  When poking around to put together my road trip route, Palo Duro Canyon State Park worked its way onto my radar.  It is the second largest canyon to the Grand Canyon […]

What’s a Locavore to Eat at a Renaissance Festival?


Well, nothing.  However in life there are always occasions to employ the 80/20 rule and this was one of them.  I was not about to turn away heavily corseted, amply cleavaged women speaking in Olde English, men in tights executed carnival tricks worthy of a new HBO series and bawdy humor over fear of nothing […]
