  • The Country Life: Turkeys going from Kate's Farm in Black Forest to the dinner table

    There's fresh - and then there's really fresh. The turkeys that customers ordered from Kate's Farm in Black Forest will be really fresh; they're being processed at a facility in Simla on Tuesday, just two days before they'll be on dinner tables. Their lives have been short - less than a year - but presumably happy, having been...

  • Make better latkes with a quick boiling water bath

    During college, I took a class on global populations and food (affectionately known as "pops and crops"). I'm sure it was a fine class, but only one lesson has stuck with me. Professor Tremblay was adamant that if we ever were stuck on a deserted island and could take only one food, we should choose the sweet potato. "A nutritional bargain" he...

  • Can you top this? Colorado Springs doughnut shop hits sweet spot with customers

    Amy's Donuts is a mom-and-pop business that's finding success by offering more than just your father's doughnuts. When it opened almost a year ago on Colorado Springs' south side, Amy's gained a following with traditional glazed doughnuts. But the shop started attracting more customers as husband-and-wife owners Amy and Chin Kim began topping...

  • Colorado Springs barbecue experts offer tips for grilling turkey for Thanksgiving

    As Thanksgiving preparations get into full swing, there's a way to free up valuable kitchen real estate - the oven - by taking the holiday bird outside to the barbie. Tom turkey can be in the gas grill getting all nice and brown while soaking up some great smoky flavors. We talked to a couple of grilling experts for pointers on how to...

  • SudSisters: Sales of seasonal AdAmAn Ale to help Empty Stocking Fund

    Mmmm, the smell of cinnamon, ginger, honey and orange peel in the morning. The Gazette's SudSisters recently were treated to a behind-the-scenes look at beer-making at Pikes Peak Brewing Co. in Monument. We helped, we got in the way and we got a sneak smell and taste (prefermentation) of this year's seasonal 
AdAmAn Ale - made in honor of...

  • Cream cheese produces ultimate creamy pumpkin pie

    In our search for the creamiest pumpkin pie, we decided to take our inspiration from the ultimate of creamy pies - cheesecake. We love the richness and depth cheesecake gets from its prime ingredient - cream cheese. That said, we didn't want to bake a pumpkin cheesecake, which can be a bit too heavy after an already heavy meal. Plus,...

  • Sweet shortcut produces irresistible sweet potato pie

    Heat the oven to 425 F. Wash and dry the sweet potatoes, then pierce them on top with a fork. Set the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and roast until soft, about 1 hour, or until you can see juices bubbling where you pricked the potatoes. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Once the sweet potatoes have cooled, peel and roughly chop the...

  • Eat Well: Tips for substituting lower calorie sides for holiday meals

    Ah, holiday feasting! Mashed potatoes oozing with butter and cream. Sweet potatoes candied up with brown sugar and butter. Pumpkin puree mixed with sugar and milk and poured into a rich pie crust. It's all so good. And potatoes, sweet potatoes and pumpkin are very nutritious foods. But how good for you are they in these combinations,...

  • Give thanks for a pie spiked with cheddar, whiskey

    Apples and cheddar cheese are such a wonderful pairing, they often are combined in pies. The result is deliciously sweet, with a hint of creamy-savory for balance. We love this combination, but we decided we could make it better. We started by adding a couple of tablespoons of whiskey (we like bourbon, but go with what you prefer), which lends...
