  • When snow flies, salads get substantial

    Eating a salad each day is a habit I adopted awhile back to help me automate the consumption of raw vegetables. Either lunch or dinner usually is built around salad. And I try to stay true to the spirit of healthier eating, meaning fried chicken tenders propped on top of greens doesn't cut it. Of course, summer salad is easy. We celebrate...

  • Drive-thru review: You'll get hooked on Burger King's Spicy Big Fish Sandwich

    The Spicy Big Fish Sandwich is not what I expected. I figured that Burger King would go the Wendy's route and use spicy breadcrumbs to bring the heat. Instead, BK simply slathers its regular Big Fish fillet with an up-tempo, creamy, spicy sauce to carry the payload. Here's the breakdown: Alaskan white pollock fish, dipped in crunchy panko...

  • SudSisters: Storybook Brewing champions beer, books in Colorado Springs

    With beer names such as Java Dragon Porter, Roasted Ogre and Gnomish Beer Goggles, Storybook Brewing seems like a natural for the Ren-fest circuit. It could have been Kilhaven, the name owner and brewer Pete Kilman initially favored for his brewery, which opened in November in northeast Colorado Springs. Kilman grew up with eight brothers and...

  • Ten fresh ways to use Brussels sprouts

    Not so long ago there really was only one way to eat Brussels sprouts. It involved boiling the sprouts into oblivion. Once they were reduced to near mush, you'd mound them on your plate, maybe add some butter and salt. You'd then gag down a few bites on the premise that they were healthy, but mostly spend the rest of the meal pushing them...

  • New York City cookbook author perfects small batch soup recipes

    A new cookbook is taking soup recipes where others haven't gone: scaling them back to create mini servings for feeding smaller households. An empty nest served as the inspiration for Joanna Pruess' latest cookbook, "Soup for Two - Small-Batch Recipes for One, Two or a Few." "I love soup but got tired of recipes that ended up making a vat full...

  • Thin is in for this grilled zucchini with Parmesan

    One of my favorite recipes is grilled zucchini ribbons. I first used them to spruce up a grilled Greek-style pizza. Initially, I wasn't sure the thin ribbons would hold up to the heat of the grill. But not only did the zucchini grill perfectly and develop a beautiful ladder of grill marks, it was so tasty that I began adding the ribbons to...

Blending everybody's favorite comfort sandwich, grilled cheese, with morning staples such as sausage, egg and cheese. My only question: What took 'em so long? Here's the blueprint: a grilled cheese sandwich with two slices of American cheese...
