  • Colorado mountain snowcast: Wintry pattern will be taking a break

    It was quite a finish to February! Many mountain locations have picked up FEET of snow in the last week to 10 days. Most importantly, the southwest mountains have received the most snow out of any other location. This region had been struggling with a lack of snow for most of the winter. Not anymore - Purgatory, Telluride, Crested Butte, and...

  • On The Run: Some bad-weather alternatives to running

    Welcome to March, the month most of us associate with the start of spring and the end of winter running. Unfortunately, this rarely is true in Colorado Springs.

  • Pigeon pageant for beautiful birds dispels 'rats with wings'

    Dogs aren't the only animals that vie for best in show. Hundreds of breeds of pigeons compete in their own version of the Westminster show, strutting on long, thick legs or fluttering curly, lacy feathers in their bid to be best bird. These pigeons aren't the nuisance flocks that swarm food scraps at outdoor restaurants. They are genetically...

  • Wine Guy: Force Majeure is a wine force to be reckoned with

    For a wine devotee, Colorado is a blessed place. The state always has enjoyed good distribution of even the most renowned and rare wines. The lower population concentration here is countered by a higher interest (and dare I say sophistication) in wine. Thus Colorado is graced with countless visits from wineries eager to tap into the market....

  • A delicious lemon-pepper pork that should have been chicken

    This is the pork tenderloin that was supposed to be a chicken. But it ended up being one of those delicious mistakes I was so glad I made. I was aiming for a roasted whole chicken that was rubbed under and over the skin with a potent blend of coarse black pepper, kosher salt, dried thyme, garlic powder and lemon zest. Then I'd drizzle it with...

  • On Food: Indian cooking kit will hook you on curry

    Lately around my home, it's been all curry all the time. Not since becoming hooked on Julia Child's television series "The French Chef" in the 1960s and buying her "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" have I been motivated to cook my way through an entire cookbook. But that changed when I got my hands on Neena Williams' "Kitchen Curry...

  • Side Streets: Colorado Springs' official flag still fighting obscurity a century after adoption

    High on a pole outside the Colorado Springs City Administration Building is an unusual flag, flying along with the Stars and Stripes and the Colorado state flag. The strange flag has a blue border and a field of white bearing a six-sided shield that's ringed in green, with rays of sun bursting behind a mountain spotted with gold. On a...

  • Winter begs for stew. Try a simple and speedy veggie tagine

    A pot of hearty stew is a gift in so many ways during the chilly days of winter. Simmering on the stove, it warms the kitchen (especially if you fire up the oven and bake a pan of cornbread to serve with it). Its aroma lifts the spirits, reminding anyone who walks through the door that they are finally home. Given that it's made in a huge...

  • Want a dinner with easy flavor? Grab a pint of heavy cream

    Sure, we're all trying to lose those pesky 10 or 15 or whatever pounds, but that's no reason to not keep a pint of heavy cream in the refrigerator. Truth is, a little fat like that can go a long way to turning a basic dish into one that is exceedingly comforting. Steak, for example, is improved dramatically with a cream-based pan sauce. Pureed...
