An open letter to breakfast cooks everywhere

Dear breakfast and brunch cooks,

Hey there. I know you’re tired and grumpy as you read this. Trust me, I’ve been there. I spent years waking up at the crack of dawn to sling eggs and French toast to hungover guests, all while feeling the effects of my own drinking session from the previous night. Although you rarely...

El Moro’s bone marrow: It’s the most frickin’ delicious thing in the world

There are few foods I’d suggest sharing with your furry friend, but bone marrow is absolutely one of them. I mean, there’s a reason your dog obsessively gnaws away at a bone long after the meat scraps have disappeared from the outside: He knows what’s inside is good for him! Bone marrow; it’s what makes bone broth thick and...

The best restaurant in Pagosa Springs is a food truck

“If you come between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m., we can most easily accommodate you...”

That’s the response we received after contacting Sage Mobile Eatery in Pagosa Springs about stopping by to check out their food. We don’t normally warn restaurants we’re coming, but this food truck, located right off 160, across from a gas...

Check out The Boathouse at Electra before it closes again

Part of me doesn’t even want to tell you about the amazing dinner I just had at the Boathouse at Electra Lake. If I do, you’ll make a reservation. Seating here is pretty limited, so I might not be able to get a table the next time I want to go. But, that’s selfish, and I know in my heart that the best things in life are...

Pop-up dinners have arrived at 2nd Deli & Spirits

Pop-up restaurants are (ahem) popping up all over the country, especially in big cities. Some chefs use them as a low cost way to try out a new menu concept and host the dinners for multiple days in a row to garner interest or attract investors.

We still stand by that statement (so, fight us) but felt the claim warranted further investigation.

Scientific facts: Grilled cheese is actually dairy crack

Growing up, I was the worst. I don’t know how my mother handled it, but I would only eat a handful of foods: buttered noodles, cheese pizza, grilled cheese, and plain hamburgers without ketchup. (In case you’re wondering, I eat all kinds of foods today but still stand firmly behind the ketchup-is-gross sentiment.)
