If you're looking for an edgy dining experience, you should check out a couple of new places at the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park in Cañon City.

Executive chef Beau Green is creating concession food with flair at Café 1230 - a state-of-the-art restaurant 1,230 feet above the Arkansas River, over looking the gorge and bridge. From the large observation deck you can peer over the railing and watch the river rush by.

The menu has favorites - Cheesy Big Boy (a burger cooked to order), chicken tenders, a veggie burger and the Whistlin' Dixie Fried Chicken Sammy - or you can go a little more exotic: Indian curry with made-in-house paneer (Asian-Indian fresh, unripended cheese), for example. There's a full bar if you need some courage

No sooner do bulbs start popping through mulch than gardeners start chomping at the bit to plant veggies.

And the soon-to-be-open farmers markets have locavores - those who want to only eat food produced in a small radius of their home, say 50 miles - particularly excited.

But what if there were a year-round local market, one similar to Green City Market in Chicago, where local farmers, meat producers, artisan food makers and beverage craftsmen could set up shop to sell food every day? That's what has been in the works for two years, courtesy of the organizers of the Colorado Springs Public Market.

I always can count on my friend Kim Jones to provide the easiest and best-tasting recipes. She and her husband moved away from the area a few years ago, but I saw them on a recent whirlwind road trip.

She didn't let me down. At their home in Fort Worth, Texas, she served up rosemary roasted cashews. I could not stop dipping into them.

"You can make them in just a few minutes," Jones said. "But they are addictive. That's why I have another bag for you to take for a snack on your drive back to Colorado."

She snagged the recipe, which was credited to Ina Garten, from foodnetwork.com. Here it is: Place 1¼ pounds roasted cashew nuts on an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes.

A second spot for the popular Manitou Springs Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza is open at 1670 E. Cheyenne Mountain Blvd. (Target shopping center), but is not quite ready for prime time.

A May 1 grand opening for the new pizza place has been shoved back to later this month. The new location was the The Front Pizza Wine and More. The idea for that restaurant was that the pizza operation in front looked like a takeout place, but there was a secret dining room in the back. Nelson Rufran, owner of Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen, made a good decision to take out the wall to showcase the dining area. He also has plans to incorporate his Ruffrano's Heavenly Squeeze Oxygen & Juice Bar, another one of his Manitou Springs businesses, in the new

<![CDATA[Kids give mom a break from kitchen duty by making treats for her special day]]> http://gazette.com/kids-give-mom-a-break-from-kitchen-duty-by-making-treats-for-her-special-day/article/1550960?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/kids-give-mom-a-break-from-kitchen-duty-by-making-treats-for-her-special-day/article/1550960?custom_click=rss

OK, junior cooks: It's time to head to the kitchen, grab an apron and whip up something in honor of the busy woman you love who takes such good care of you. It doesn't have to be a complicated recipe. Think of dishes that require five ingredients or less.

Even better, how about starting with a recipe that uses only three ingredients?

You can make a tasty pound-like cake with just a box of extra moist white cake mix, two single-serving cartons of nonfat lemon-flavored Greek yogurt (about a cup total) and a cup of water. No kidding! Just combine the three ingredients and bake in a Bundt pan at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. The result is a lovely cake that you can sprinkle with powdered sugar (or not) before serving.

If it's Tuesday, it must be taco night, so why not make a taco bar for dinner?

Switch it up with an eye to making a healthy taco, starting with the protein. Instead of using the standard ground beef, try fish. Tuna is a popular choice, and you can get fresh tuna, which is great grilled, baked or steamed. Or skip cooking and use canned tuna. And I have just the tuna to suggest: a new canned tuna called Safe Catch, which made its debut in our local Sprouts grocery store on May 1.

What sets this canned tuna apart is that the manufacturer tests every fish for mercury levels before purchasing it. High mercury in fish can have damaging effects on children's growth and an infant's brain development.
