  • Dining Review: Small kitchen, big Mexican flavor in downtown Colorado Springs

    By Robin Intemann robin.intemann@gazette.com -
    Yesterday

    Ordering a meal at a counter with the staff working in a small kitchen in full view is evocative of food trucks. Although Salsa Latina is bricks and mortar, it has all the elements that make those kitchenettes-on-wheels so popular, right down to the Styrofoam containers in which the...

  • Elevate green beans from Thanksgiving afterthought

    Yesterday

    Admit it, when it comes to preparing Thanksgiving dinner, the greens are an afterthought. You give all your focus to the bird, the stuffing, the mashed potatoes, probably even a couple orange vegetables. But the green stuff? Um... How long does it take to microwave frozen green beans?...

  • Leave seasoning to the end for a better butternut

    Published: Fri, Oct 24, 2014

    We tend to associate vinaigrettes with salad, but they actually are an easy — and speedy — way to add tons of flavor to all manner of dishes. One of my favorites is roasted vegetables. Too often, we only season roasted veggies before they go into the oven. While this certainly can...

    Updated: Wed, Oct 22, 2014

    Gluten is a mixture of two proteins found in wheat, barley and rye. Beer is made from malted cereal grains such as wheat, barley and rye. So it would seem that gluten-free beer is an oxymoron. But gluten-free beer does exist. In fact, those who suffer from celiac disease and have a...

  • Hummus and chocolate? It's a surprisingly delicious combo

    By J.M. HIRSCH The Associated Press -
    Updated: Wed, Oct 22, 2014

    Admittedly, chocolate hummus sounds like a Halloween trick. When I first saw it alongside "real" hummus at the grocer, I decided it had to be either disgusting or a cruel joke. There was no way a traditional hummus base - with all sorts of savory things such as chickpeas - could play...
