  • SudSisters: Unusual ingredients in beer cater to about every taste

    These days, nothing is off-limits for brewers. Pickles, avocados, oysters, bananas, even pizza. If you can taste it, most likely you can brew it. Recently, I stumbled upon the most unique ingredient I'd seen in beer. To verify that it was indeed unusual, I set out on a quest. My search took me to a liquor store that carries many varieties...

  • Drive-thru review: 'Heroes in a half shell' join forces with Pizza Hut

    Pizza Hut's Cheesy Bites Pizza is back. You remember the pie with 28 pull-apart puffs loaded with cheese circling the pie. As if Pizza Hut was lacking for places to hide more cheese, now even stuffed crust isn't the pole-sitter. Here's the Cheesy Bites Pizza breakdown: a large, one-topping, 14-inch pizza surrounded by 28 cheese puffs instead...

  • Review: Colorado Springs restaurant makes healthy taste hedonistic

    Editor's note: JL Fields joins the dining team with monthly reviews of vegan options at a wide variety of local restaurants. No meat, no fish, no dairy, but lots of vegetables. For a lot of 
people, eating vegan is tantamount to a culinary death sentence. But for me, veganism makes sense - ethically and physically. I'm happy to report, too,...

  • Food & Wine Classic in Aspen attracts top-notch chefs who show off new culinary trends

    With 50 speakers giving presentations over three days, it was hard to decide who would win my attention and precious little time at the 32nd Food & Wine Classic in Aspen in June.

    Chardonnay has been America's favorite white wine for around three decades.

    Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) blew the doors off of its second quarter Monday, and its shares took an after-the-bell leap to an all-time high near $650, double the price hit early last year.

  • Drive-thru review: Love that shrimp from Popeyes

    This week I decided to try an eight-piece order of Cracked Pepper Butterfly Shrimp at Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen. Veterans always will call it "Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits" because that's what started this company.
