A Mediterranean dalliance at Zoe’s Kitchen

Prior to this visit, I did limited research on Zoe’s Kitchen. My plan was to go in blind to see what my experience would be without outside influences.  I reached out to their Facebook page to lock down a reservation.  They were swift in their reply and relayed to me that they don’t take reservations,…

A Trip Down The Rabbit Hole

Unbeknownst to me when I set up my visit to The Rabbit Hole that I was venturing down the stairs to what used to be the city morgue.  I was mid-gulp of my Rosé when this revelation was revealed, and yes, the hairs on my neck stood up.  Our table of eleven nervous brave patrons…

Eat with the Kings | NaRai Siam Cuisine

I don’t typically head to a restaurant to satisfy my desire for Thai food.  My Friday night consists of pajamas, Parks and Recreation on Netflix, and a delivery of Pad Thai around 9:30pm.  I’m serious.  Well, folks, things are a-changin’ in 2017.  I selected a sensible outfit for my trip off the couch, and headed…

Wrangled up at Cowboy Star

For several months, I have had Cowboy Star on my culinary radar, browsing their menu weekly with the anticipation of a young child on their way to Disney World.  I reviewed the dinner menu and felt that it was a bit pricey for my very small dainty wallet.  However, the lunch menu had some of…

Luck It’s Food Art

It has taken me a couple of weeks to articulate this experience upon seeing a childhood food favorite, Pork Rinds(Skins), on the menu.  This sent me into a culinary tailspin! Brother Luck Street Eats is by first glance a quaint, bustling restaurant on the edge of the historic Old Colorado neighborhood.  But, as you walk…

Molto Delizioso!

  Interestingly enough, I was up in Evergreen, CO, a few weeks ago and was in desperate need of some new reading material.  I walked around the cabin I was staying in and glanced down at a somewhat concealed bookshelf next to the bed.  I reached down and grabbed this book; dusted it off and…

I like my eggs…Over Easy!

Ever since I was a girl, breakfast has been my thing. For me, there’s nothing like waking up to a streaming plate of pancakes with bacon and eggs. Or a breakfast burrito loaded down with chorizo, eggs, potatoes, and sausage. In our family, a hot breakfast signaled the beginning of a great weekend! As we began…

Phantom Canyon Foodies

Written by Mandra Six years ago, I moved from Dallas to Colorado Springs and our first stop was Phantom Canyon Brewery.  Why?  Well, it had wonderful reviews and I was looking for an IPA (India Pale Ale) to celebrate just signing a new lease with my husband.  And I was not disappointed! Our visits became a weekly occurrence. It was…

A Merry Gold Time at Marigold’s

Walking into a packed Marigold Cafe, we were immediately greeted by the sight of amazing pastries. It’s definitely worth the drive there for the dessert alone! As it was a Friday night, we weren’t the only ones who decided Marigold Cafe was the place to be, so naturally it was packed. Although it was crowded,…
