48 Hours in the Best of the West

Summer is finally here! Although it’s not officially June 21st yet, the warm temperatures and sunny days prove summer is on its way to the Mile High City. This is the time of year that I can be found on a patio indulging in happy hour, cheering for the Rockies, or slinging balls at the […]

LOST & FOUND: Bites with Blondie

It’s been a little quiet around here lately. For that, I’m sorry. I decided to take a little digital detox for the months of April and May, which proved to be easier said than done. Yes, I did document some of my food adventures on Instagram (@biteswithblondie), but decided to treat myself to a little […]

Where Art Thou, Date Night?

Date nights are hard to come by when you work full time and have been married for what seems like forever. Throw a small child into the mix and you may as well forget about it. Although childless, my husband and I frequently plan date nights together. Oftentimes date night in our house consists of […]

Ragin’ Like a Cajun at BURLY Brewing

Twist. Pull. Peel. Suck. No, this isn’t lyrics to the new Cardi B song or the opening lines of a romance novel. This is, however, how you go about eating a crawfish.

It’s not every day that you’re invited to attend a private preview of Denver’s newest food hall, three days before they officially open for business. That. Just. Happened.

Bites with Blondie: Denver’s Love Affair with Cheese

Real talk. I think it’s safe to say we all were a little bummed when Whole Foods Market announced they were discontinuing their Mac & Cheese bar at their Colorado locations. But why, Whole Foods? The classic dish, which started in Italy, quickly became an essential meal for every young American, and still remains a […]

Bites with Blondie: Denver’s Slice of Hawaiian Paradise

I have a confession to make. I hope you will still love me after this revelation. I hate snow. I hate winter. That’s right, HATE. But it doesn’t end there. I’ve only skied once in my lifetime, when I was eight, only to fly down the hill and run straight into the shed holding the […]

Bites with Blondie: Running into 2019

Cheers to 2019! I know what you’re thinking. Katie, it’s been 10 days since New Year’s Eve. Stop popping champagne bottles. But let’s face it—I CAN’T STOP, WON’T STOP. When one gets paid to do a job one loves, one must take it, and pop those bottles until they are gone! Which is exactly what […]

Bites with Blondie: …And to all a Goodnight.

Did you miss me? I know it’s only been two weeks, but I figured it was time to reach back out to my loyal readers. After serving as a food columnist intern for the past three months, I can safely say that I have found my calling. Anyone will tell you, I love food and […]

Bites with Blondie: A Sexy Side of Downtown Denver

Back in the early 2000’s, anyone who was anyone got their mob family fix from The Sopranos. Let’s face it; despite Tony Soprano’s outward image as the garbage man king, he was a badass, who was always taken seriously. He made a mean cocktail while counting money at the Bada Bing club, and spent each […]
