  • SudSisters: The brew run tradition runs deep in Colorado

    A team of new brewers entered the field this month when the Colorado Springs Sky Sox played their season opener at Security Service Field - the club's first game as the top affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, which it joined in a two-year player development contract last year.

  • You need this one-pan approach to getting dinner done fast

    As kitchen wisdom goes, I often think the best tricks are the simplest. One-pan cooking, for example. The ability to cook an entire meal on a single rimmed sheet pan - an act that leaves you with nothing but that one pan to clean when dinner's over - to me is nothing short of magic. The secret to making it work is a matter of organizing the...

  • Mastering a simple vinaigrette

    Most people reach for prepared salad dressings because on busy nights they can't handle the thought of making something else. After cooking a main course and some sides and tossing together a salad, who has the time and energy to make dressing? I get it. It's convenient. But homemade dressings are worth the trouble. They not only are fresher...

  • A trick for keeping spring lamb burgers from tasting gamey

    No meat says spring quite like lamb. And while healthier cooks tend to limit red meat, happily there is a place for lamb on the healthy plate. Animal proteins bring saturated fats to the table, but only about half of lamb's fat is saturated. And lamb is full of protein, which means a few ounces of it can be filling. A 4-ounce raw portion has...
