    Pete Kilman has a day job, but his dream is to have a storybook ending in which his beer pays the bills.

  • S'mores get new flavors with varied ingredients

    That gooey, chocolatey, crunchy, quintessential American campfire treat is getting a makeover. S'mores are turning up in unexpected sweet settings and savory dishes and even being transformed into adult beverages.

  • High-end Colorado Springs chocolate-maker hoping for sweet success

    There isn't a single candy bar at Cacao Chemistry. Instead, small decorated truffles are displayed in a glass case with prices starting at $2.50. Even though the truffle could be eaten in two bites, there is a chemistry behind it. It might be sweet, it might be salty, fruity - with a little wine or whiskey in it. Inspired by the way...

  • Ditch the dogs and take your July 4 links to a new level

    Anybody can grill a hot dog, slap it on a bun and add the usual ketchup and mustard. So how about going a bit beyond the ordinary this July Fourth? Let's start with the meat. Rather than a basic dog, up the ante by grilling something more robust, such as bratwurst sausages or peppery kielbasas. They are bigger, meatier and more flavorful. For...

    A basic strawberry-rhubarb pie is a delightful and iconic part of summer, but why let it rest at that? This summer we decided to crank it up and take this pie to a new level. We started by ditching the usual cooked strawberries in favor of fresh raspberries. The raspberries get arranged over a simple but deliciously tart-sweet rhubarb compote....

  • No local lobster handy? Get a lobster roll fix with shrimp

    Wildly flavorful and obscenely indulgent, lobster rolls are a summertime fixture at every seafood shack in New England. Problem is, these heavily-buttered hot dog buns stuffed with chunks of mayonnaise-rich lobster and maybe a little celery for crunch can be pricey. Also, it's not as if everyone everywhere can count on finding fresh Maine...

  • The classic macaroni salad, not updated even a little

    We reached all the way back to the "Mad Men" era for inspiration as we crafted this classic July Fourth side dish. It's macaroni salad in all its tangy, comfortingly mayonnaise-rich, decades-ago glory. This is pasta salad as your parents - or more likely your grandparents - remember it. You won't be able to stop shoveling it onto your plate....
