Bites with Blondie: Belly Up to a New Tradition this Thanksgiving

November 16th, 2018
Thanksgiving Dine-Out

Thanksgiving in my family is a big deal. Each year, my dad’s side of my family gathers together to eat good food and drink even better wine. It’s the day I look forward to most out of the year and the perfect kick off to the holiday season. We laugh, talk about what we are thankful for and end the night with a holiday cocktail and games. While it’s all fun and games, literally,  there is always a level of stress involved with creating the perfect meal and experience everyone will enjoy. Although this is our family tradition, some choose to not spend the hours cleaning the house and cooking... Read More

Bites with Blondie: Support the Troops at these Veteran Owned Local Establishments

I admit, I’m a sucker for a man in uniform. Military uniform to be exact. I’ve spent my life surrounded by members of the military. I grew up hearing stories from both grandfathers of their experiences in the Air Force and Army, experienced life with my best friends stationed in Florida with the Navy and spent the last few years as an Air Force wife, supporting my husband through various deployments. I spent time working at the Department of Veteran Affairs, visiting with veterans about their time in the military, and was humbled by their stories of bravery. Having witnessed many loved ones... Read More

Bites with Blondie: Pigging Out at Bacon Social House

November 2nd, 2018
Bacon Social House

Bacon isn’t just the cut of pig’s back or underbelly. It’s my absolute favorite food. Ever since I can remember, I have been obsessed with bacon. Maybe I just love salt-cured meats, or maybe it was the fact that my nanny growing up would leave a slice on the counter each morning for me, either way, I love bacon. I’ll shout it from the rooftop. Hell, I even receive bacon inspired gifts as jokes, that I take quite seriously.  Call me weird or pork obsessed if you’d like, it won’t bother me. I’m used to it. So, when a restaurant designed entirely around bacon opened in the Highlands,... Read More

Bites with Blondie

From chuck wagons to push carts, food trucks have gained huge popularity in recent years, and as a result, transformed the way Americans dine. Food trucks have evolved from just being a trend, to an official restaurant concept that millions of hungry diners  love. Although the food truck phase got its start in Los Angeles, many cities have adopted the curbside way of life. Listed as one of the “Top Towns” in food truck nation, Denver has certainly made a name for itself, with over 113 food trucks cruising around the city as of April 2018. Being a foodie, I have been to my fair share of food... Read More

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

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

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

September 21st, 2018
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

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
