With warm decor, great service and wonderful food, we’ve fallen in love with Chinook Tavern. Located in Greenwood Village, it’s a perfect place to entertain clients for lunch, or great for a special evening out. Be prepared for a welcoming comfortable and memorable dining experience. Let’s take a look.
Just a short intermission from recipes and cooking. After all, the way I cook (and eat) exercise is something that can’t be skipped. We’ve been enjoying perfect Spring weather here in the Rockies, which recently found us on a 2.5 mile hike close to home.
Roxborough State Park is just a few miles Southwest of Highlands Ranch. The park, with close to 4000 acres, is known for it’s dramatic red rock formations, and for us, it’s a prime bird watching destination. So sit back and enjoy the scenery as we meander along the trail.
A shot at our booth, a lunch outing at Patsy’s Inn, the oldest Italian Restaurant in Denver.
My husband is a Denver native and grew up in what we affectionately call “the old country” and officially known as the “Little Italy“. In recent years, the area has undergone a renovation and now is part of “The Highlands“. Rich in Denver history it’s located just West of Downtown.
Winding your way through this partially renovated and unique neighborhood you’ll find historic brick bungalow homes next to upscale boutiques, next to run-down liquor stores, next to a razed modern loft projects and then you get to Patsy’s. Let’s take a look.
This is a slice of dry-cured hot Italian sausage, dripping in a marshmallow cream sauce. Sweet, spicy, salty, chewy, sticky…a surprisingly delicious experience. Made by North Denver Sausage Company.
How much do you know about REAL dry-cured sausage? For one, it’s famously difficult to make, one salumiere called it “the pinnacle of the art of meat” And it’s increasingly hard to find. A field trip this past weekend to North Denver Sausage left me “encased” in new knowledge about an old fashioned process. Let’s take a look.
