Bites with Blondie: Highlight on Havana – DAE GEE Korean BBQ

October 12th, 2018
DAE GEE Korean BBQ

It all started in 2015. My husband, a Senior Airman in the Air Force Guard, was selected to deploy to South Korea for three months with the 140th Wing. Although it was hard to say goodbye, I knew he was on an adventure of a lifetime with an entire culture to explore. In the months spent overseas, my husband constantly raved about the cuisine, the unique blend of flavors, and the aroma of his favorite little restaurant in the market. He spoke about the hidden gems surrounding base, their house made noodles soaked in broth, he fell in love with chicken bulgogi and even made a special trip to Seoul.... Read More

Bites with Blondie – Weekend Adventure: Fall Leaf Peepin’ and Eatin’

October 5th, 2018
Fall leaf foliage

Colorado is known for more than just skiing, craft breweries and sports teams. After gold was first discovered in 1859, Colorado became home to the Gold Rush, bringing thousands of people west hoping to strike it rich. Mining proved to be profitable, as over 8 million ounces of gold was found throughout the state, which allowed Colorado to establish its statehood and gain a colorful reputation for success. Although the gold rush ended in the early 1860’s, each September the Colorado mountains showcase their most famous gold assets – Aspen leaves. While the arrival of fall colors came early... Read More

8 Patios to Dine Outside with a View

September 28th, 2018
Indulge_Denver

If there are two things I know about eating in Denver, it’s that most people are down to try something new and ideally on a patio, especially with over 300 days of sunshine. Although the leaves are changing, temperatures are dropping, and Fall is (technically) here, the ever present 80-degree heat in Denver is no joke. These eight outdoor spaces are not only my favorite spots to grab a bite and sip a cocktail but to enjoy views for days. Lucy Directly above Comedy Works at the Landmark, Lucy not only boasts a killer menu but provides outstanding views of the Denver Tech Center! With a bright... Read More

Chef Feature: Food is Family

Bosphorus

There’s an age old saying that people come together through food. It’s a way for cultures to collide, people to bond, and communities to build. Sharing food has always been part of the human story, and a huge part of mine. I was first introduced to Turkish food, thanks to my sister, after finding true love with Melih, who was born and raised in Turkey. They met in Minneapolis, MN and had an instant connection. During our conversations, she would rave about his cooking and passion for food. When I visited the Twin Cities in 2010, my sister introduced me to Melih one evening at the small family... Read More

September 14th, 2018
The Alley_Littleton

Growing up in the surrounding suburbs and graduating from Columbine High School, it wasn’t until I was an adult that I learned to appreciate the charm of downtown Littleton.  The one-way streets lined with shops and white strung lights, bring picturesque memories to most locals, myself included. This quaint little town has captivated new businesses to move into the neighborhood, becoming quite the hot spot for foodies. Start your morning off with a fresh roasted cup of coffee (or bottomless Bellini’s) and sample the signature dishes offered at Main Street’s newest addition, Grande Station.... Read More

Tacos Tequila Whiskey – Not your average Taco Tuesday

September 7th, 2018
Tacos Tequila Whiskey

Pinche Taqueria. Tacos Borrachos. Tacos Tequila Whiskey. They are one in the same! Just ask owner and operator, Kevin Morrison. He started from the restaurant bottom and now is here – owning a killer restaurant, with multiple locations across metro Denver. What started out as an Arizona food truck named “Pinche,” has transformed into a Denver brick and mortar staple, Tacos Tequila Whiskey, serving up authentic Mexican street food. I decided to try this famed City Park joint and bring my husband along for the ride. With my taco passport in tow, we headed downtown to experience their... Read More

Corner Ramen

Corner Ramen

Writer’s block. The struggle is real. My problem this week was deciding which of several cool things to write about. While struggling with this decision, I took a walk and found myself confronted with my favorite restaurant in Denver. When tempted, I usually succumb, and so I went inside and treated myself to some dinner at Corner Ramen with the comfortable companion of a science fiction paperback. As I worked through my drink, it became clear as filtered sake that I needed to write about this Denver treasure. My cozy but unfashionable neighborhood in Denver has had the blessing of being overlooked... Read More

Find Home at Lucile’s Creole Café -A little café, with a big heart

May 1st, 2018

  With all of the new restaurants popping up in Fort Collins, especially in the Old Town area, sometimes it is nice to return to an old favorite. Lucile’s Creole Café has held its popularity as a breakfast and lunch spot in Fort Collins and other Northern Colorado locations. Passing by, you may mistake it for a small house. It has a bright yellow exterior, a fenced in yard, and a homey feel. With the restaurant being both small and busy, a wait is always to be expected on the weekends. An average wait time at Lucile’s, that I have grown to accept, is around 30-45 minutes. The food is... Read More
