Would you believe that I have never cooked until really recently? Recently meaning like literally last month. And I mean I have never boiled water on the stove or even cooked rice in the rice cooker. Apart from not doing it, I actually didn’t know how! I’m honestly not proud but that’s how it had been.
Wine is supposed to be fun but it’s so often wrapped up in pomp and circumstance that it can be a little hard to remember that. A great way to reintroduce fun with wine is pairing it with candy. Whether you’re a glass at the end of a long workday type or a social type hosting a dinner party, you can combine your favorite sweet treats, like milk chocolate to sour candies, with a wine pairing for an elevated and delicious adult dessert. You don’t have to be a sommelier to find the perfect pairing, we’ve provided a number of combinations and why they work together.
Late night snacking has almost become an art form in Denver. Compared to certain other cities, restaurants in Denver close early, even on the weekend! (And yes, 11:00 PM is early on a Friday or Saturday night) So it can be hard to find a good place to grab some grub after having a few drinks with your friends. Because of this reason, I have compiled a list of five of my favorite late night spots in no particular order, and I'm including some menu recommendations for you to try while there.
Last weekend, I had a guest visiting from Mississippi and I wanted to make sure she ate well while in Denver. 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.
You have probably heard that eating vegetables and whole grains can help you lose weight. Yet that may not be the case. Some dietitians believe that these foods can actually lead to obesity and inflammation.
