What I like Wednesday: Denver Desserts

Sometimes, you gotta eat dessert first. And when those days come (or when you're hankering for something sweet at any time), Denver and Aurora have you covered. Sugar Bakeshop: Bakery off of Broadway near downtown. They have the best smore's cookie I have ever tasted. It's one of my all time favorite cookies and I…

2-22-21 Botanicals, bread, & bingo

Bread pre oven I couldn't help myself with an alliteration - botanicals, bread, and bingo - it was just too good to pass up. You're welcome. Yesterday revealed itself to be an overall pleasant day. I'm on steroids for a few days to help with my sensitive tooth (thanks new crown) and so my mood…

I'm not always in Denver proper so I've had the chance to experience some great food in other cities and suburbs. Today I'd like to spotlight three restaurants I enjoy in Aurora, Colorado. Misaki at Stanley: Delicious sushi - try their sweet potato tempura roll and their Green Monster roll. OMG. Those two things are…

What I like Wednesday: Breakfast Joints

Colorado, as anywhere I imagine, loves their brunch restaurants. And while I'm not a huge fan of pancakes (they're great on occasion but I can't handle them every day) and I don't eat eggs anymore, there are still a couple of breakfast joints that I can, and definitely want to, recommend in Denver: Denver Biscuit…

12-7-20 Christmasy weekend!

Christmas lights, baked goods, music, a Christmas tree, and movies filled my weekend. Shari and I went to the Botanic Gardens at Chatfield on Saturday evening where we wandered around the grounds looking at all the Christmas lights. Shari had never been to this botanic gardens before and I had never been for their holiday…
