    Cooking Oil

    What most people who cook don't realize is how important the oil you use is. Chefs at most restaurants are pressured by "food cost" and the restaurant owners are in turn pressured by the precarious balancing act of "labor cost," "food cost," "utilities" and the myriad of other expenses associated with operating a restaurant. Even when cooking at home, a lot of recipes you find just say, "oil" or "vegetable oil."

    Sap! Review

    Sap! Review

    What do you know about sap? Before trying these drinks, I knew little to nothing about it. In my head, I always confused it with maple syrup. I’m aware that these two things are in fact, different, but I never had a reason to seek out any answers. I guess it was just one of those things I was comfortable in my confusion of. I knew it was sticky and came from trees. That’s as far as my knowledge went. So when I saw the Sap! variety pack of maple seltzer, maple soda and sparkling birch, I thought I could use this as a learning experience.

    Foods Celebrities Refuse to Eat

    There are certain foods that people don't like after tasting them. There are some foods people don't like because of the way they look. There are some foods people don't like because of the way they smell. Then there are some foods people refuse to eat because they were forced to eat so much of it when they were young. They vowed to never eat that food again when they grew up and left their childhood home. They said when they make their own money, they would eat what they wanted and not be forced to eat what they didn't like. Many of those people have kept the promise they made to themselves long ago and still refuse to eat certain foods today.

    4 Ways You Can Embrace a Gluten-Free Diet

    4 Ways You Can Embrace a Gluten-Free Diet

    Experts have recognized that 1 in 133 people have celiac disease, which accounts for 6-7% of all Americans. This doesn’t sound like a lot of people until you calculate that that equates to over 20 million people—no small number. But while many are switching to a gluten-free diet for specific medical conditions, many more are making the change because they believe that a gluten-free diet is healthier for them. While the Gluten Intolerance Group says it’s only healthier if you are, in fact, celiac, they agree that if you eat a diet high in breads and carbs, going gluten-free will undoubtedly make you feel less sluggish and more full of energy. Regardless of your reasons, if you’ve chosen to make the leap to eliminate gluten from your diet, you may be wondering how restrictive it will be (and just how much you’ll miss your gluten-heavy favorite foods). Worry not, here are four ways you can get aboard the gluten-free bus and still enjoy every mealtime.

    7 Benefits of Switching to Organic Food

    The question of whether organic food has any merit as a healthier alternative is a controversial one. The reason for this is because it should be healthier in theory, but you should be keenly aware of the fact that produce is defined as organic within certain parameters, and a willing grower of these groceries can find holes in these parameters in order to save money, and still retain the required stamp of approval. Still, the bottom line is that the organic variety truly is healthier most of the time, so it really ends up being a question of whether the quality corresponds fairly to the increase in pricing. In order to be certain about this conundrum, you should just take a look at seven benefits of switching to organic food.

    Lester's Fixins Review

    This is one of the most chaotic things I’ve done in my life. Not just as far as beverages go, but in general. I’m willing to try pretty much any food once, and that extends to beverages as well. There’s no way I can justify what I’m about to do.I’ve been curious about these drinks for years. I’ve seen them on Amazon, but would always talk myself out of trying them, for completely obvious reasons. I have some predictions about which will be the most repulsive. Ranch is topping the list. There’s literally no way it can be good. I’m not really into Ranch dressing. I prefer Caesar. That being said, I wouldn’t want to try a Caesar dressing soda either. I can’t decide if these drinks would be better or worse without carbonation. It doesn’t matter, because they ARE carbonated and I WILL try them all. The minutiae of it all is pretty irrelevant at this point. What I WILL say, before even trying them, is that I appreciate that they’re all made with cane sugar. I appreciate a nice cane sugar soda. I know people will judge me for trying these. I understand that I will be persecuted and my beliefs will be brought into question. I’m not doing this for ME, I’m doing this for YOU and I’m doing this for US. I hope you all appreciate this sacrifice I’m making, even if you yell at me for it. OK, now let’s get into tasting and reviews.

    Clean Cause Review

    Clean Cause Review

    After trying the SAP! drinks, I vowed to try more beverages that have a cause or positive message attached to it. I’m looking into more brands that do this (and I’m taking suggestions if you have any). Companies aren’t usually transparent about where their money goes or where the ingredients are sourced, and a lot of us don’t really question it. Why would we? We were raised in a climate where corporate brands have been vying for our attention, and it’s easy to miss smaller companies that are trying to do better. It’s tough deciding what brands or companies to spend your money with, when it really comes down to it. I don’t know that there’s necessarily a right choice in some instances. There’s constant stress and grappling with spending the money you earn, and how to spend it (unless you’re rich, but I don’t believe rich people have any reason to read or relate to anything I write). I even have some skepticism when I do find a brand that seems to hit the right marks with me. What are they hiding? What are their values? Sometimes the lines are too blurry to make a distinction between pandering and genuine mission statements. Do you ever feel that way? It seems like inclusivity and awareness are just brand benchmarkers now. But again, the lines are pretty blurry. It’s rare that I find a brand whose owner has transparency about their motives, so it led me to seek out something and report back.

Once I found out she has a sweet tooth, I knew I had to take her to D Bar in Uptown Denver near 19th and Pennsylvania, which is run by Food Network Celebrity Chef Keegan Gerhard. D Bar offers an intimate dining experience filled with delicious sweets, comfort foods, and savory plates that's perfect for any date night or friendly outing. They also offer a happy hour selection that I would recommend checking out if you're in the area Monday through Friday 3-6:00 PM. The typical mass clientele is aged mid 20s to late 30s but the menus appeal to just about everyone. I have seen small children there before, but due to the complexity of the menu I wouldn't recommend it unless your kids are like Neal Patrick Harris.
