Cauliflower Buffalo Wings

cauliflower buffalo wings

Lately, I've been hearing so much hype around using cauliflower to make "cauliflower buffalo wings". The thought of it didn't really make sense (I mean how can cauliflower substitute a juicy chicken wing), but I thought I would give them a try. The whole idea of making them started when we invited a few people over to watch the Colorado football game (that's where Dan went to school), and 3 out of the 5 guests were vegetarians! I wanted to do something fun and unique and thought that it could ... [ Read More ]

My Date Night at Enolo Wine Bar

Since my fiancé, Dan, and I got engaged, we’ve hardly been able to spend any time together. Between his work and travel schedule and my flights back and forth to Boston to plan our wedding, it’s been tough!

I've decided to start Tuesday, September 2nd (one ... [ Read More ]

The Night I had Dinner w/ an Owner of Gibsons Steakhouse

gibsons steakhouse review

There are a lot of really cool things about my job! For one, I get to eat A LOT. I'm always invited to try out the newest and best restaurants plus, I get the pleasure of teaching cooking classes to like-minded foodies. It really is a dream! Despite all the exciting things I get to do on a daily basis, the other day, somehow, my job got even more fantastic. I got to have dinner at the iconic Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse with one of the Managing Partners, John Colletti, and boy did I get ... [ Read More ]
