Living at a mile high has it’s advantages, but when it comes to cooking, it can be difficult to predict how your food will come out. Too dry? Too mushy? Overcooked? Undercooked? I’ve had a love/hate relationship with hard boiled eggs ever since I moved to Denver in ’98. No matter what, they weren’t perfect. [...]
This is a revival of a past post. This recipe makes me happy. I still giggle and cheer when I see any of my friends proclaim they are making this and it has become a staple in my own home for kid friendly dinners. We may live in Colorado, but Carolina pulled pork is forever [...]
I love gnocchi. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Nothing is better on a cold day than a plate of warm gnocchi with a thick and rich sauce. In the summer you can lighten up with a bit of olive oil and herbs. Last night I was experimenting again. Making my own vodka sauce, and came up [...]
Papa Knitschmidt has quite the sweet tooth and likes to bake. He has made some amazingly yummy treats! When Chalupa Boy was a baby I worked for Papa for a while.

A Thanksgiving Turkey Wreath! I love it because it’s easy and I often have all the ingredients on hand. The kids like [...]
My grandmother always had the BEST Thanksgiving dinners. I had been drooling just thinking about her sweet potato casserole when I looked in a recipe box she left me when she passed, and there it was! Hallelujah! Since it’s the season of Giving and whatnot, I am sharing it with all of you along with [...]
Cake pops have been the rage for a while. I’ve posted countless times about my love for them. But… We have a bigger love in our house. The boys recently asked me to make more of the mini Pop-Tart style treats I made around this time last year. Who am I to deny them of [...]
Back to School. This for my family means back to the shuffle with 3 kids in 3 different schools all starting and stopping at 3 different times. We are finally home around 4pm and then the “What’s for dinner?!??!” whines kick in. Okay, so I might be a part of that whining, wondering what the [...]
I have a secret love affair with Paula Deen. Yes, I know what you are thinking… “So do I!” No? Well, I’m not ashamed to admit it. Some of her recipes can give you a heart attack on the spot like her Krispy Kreme Donut Bread Pudding. I’ll wait for you to go google that [...]
