  • 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...

  • Eat well: Vegans in Colorado Springs have plenty to look forward to this year

    Everything is coming up vegan these days, and that's just fine with JL Fields, a local vegan lifestyle coach and Gazette dining critic. She recently sent a press release about VegFest Colorado, a health and environmental fair June 20-21 at Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Golden. I attended VegFest a few years ago and picked up some interesting...

  • Kraft Mac & Cheese shedding the dyes

    NEW YORK — This is the last year that the original version of Kraft Mac & Cheese sold in the U.S. will contain artificial preservatives or synthetic colors. In January, Kraft says its macaroni and cheese will be colored using paprika, annatto and turmeric. There has been a huge shift away from processed foods in the U.S. and...

  • What the heck is Bubba's 33? It's coming to Colorado Springs

    Texas Roadhouse, a national restaurant chain that's enjoyed success for years with a location along Powers Boulevard, is bringing a new restaurant concept to the busy corridor on Colorado Springs' east side. Bubba's 33, which touts itself on Facebook as a "sports bar, American restaurant and pizza place," is under construction southeast of...

  • Dining review: Fast, fresh and friendly at Colorado Springs Neapolitan-style pizza restaurant

    Thanks to sports, especially basketball and football, I'd come to think of seconds as fragments of time that create the illusion of lasting indefinitely. Duca's Neapolitan Pizza has made me rethink how quickly they really do pass. It takes longer to put on the fresh toppings than it does for these pizzas to bake. From our table, I could see...

  • On Food: Items worth searching for on grocery store shelves

    Today I'm going to be a bit nutty. Then I'm going to get my "Freekeh" on. And finally I'll smooth things out with a dose of culture. About that nutty part. Have you heard of NuttZo? I hadn't until my Jazzercise instructor, Meridith Norwood, treated the class to a post-workout smoothie that combined a scoop of the nut spread with fresh fruit...

  • Gussy up your salad by breaking it down and jarring it up

    Too often, a salad is served out of obligation. We feel it is something we have to do to make the meal complete. And too often that's why the salads we serve aren't that great. We don't really care about them. Thing is, I love a well-made salad, and for me it is no obligation to either serve or eat one. This salad, for example, is a...

  • Mastering the simple vinaigrette to deliver maximum flavor

    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...
