Last Saturday the Baltimore Ravens came to town to play the Denver Broncos in an AFC playoff game. The high temperature at game time registered 16 degrees and continued to fall during the afternoon. But the arctic air couldn’t freeze the charge that electrified this city.
Lucky us. Right before Christmas a new olive oil tasting bar and store opened up in downtown Littleton. EVOO Marketplace is located right next door to Savory Spice Shop and is packed full of shiny stainless steel vats of clever and exotic infused oils and vinegars. They offer an aged balsamic that I could chug from the bottle. It’s omg good. I’m going to write more about it soon, but for now wanted to share a little something I dreamed up after I grabbed a bottle of their chipotle infused olive oil.
Before we go any further with these blue cheese hamburgers, I’d like to address the title of this recipe which I found in my Colorado Classique cookbook. It appeared without a hint of why it bears the namesake of this ranch.
