Use it or Lose it: Apple Pie Ice Cream

I have something very shameful to admit. I bought an ice cream machine in October and only finally put it to use last week.  It had been sitting in my garage, lonely and unused, all that time. But when I finally did use it—well, it was definitely worth the wait! About two weeks ago,...

Weekly Wrap-Up: The Receipt Edition

What I’m Eating: • Decent Chinese-American lunch at the Golden Lotus in Boulder (I had never been!) • The chipotle steak sandwich from Mod Market is WAY better than your typical fast food. I like that they use real ingredients—and that they print nutrition data on your receipt! • Made this sinful Maple-Bacon Biscuit...

Weekly Wrap-Up: the TSA Compliant Edition

What I’m Eating: It’s been a big dining-out week for me! • I got to dine at L’Atelier for the first time this week!  Lovely place.  I can highly recommend the lobster ravioli and the lemon cheesecake! • Had lunch at SALT and marveled over their crispy polenta; how is something so simple SO freaking delicious??...

Christmast Foodie No. 10: Caramel Cracker Crack

Oh, people.  I wish I could tell you that I had a cute and festive name for this treat. Like, “Crunchy Caramel Crackers” or “Holiday Cracker Caramel Crunch.” But I’m the sort of gal that likes to call a duck a duck.  So this is called Caramel Cracker Crack. (Actually, the original name was...
