Cheddar Scones

I love scones with my morning coffee – and I love cheese. I thought, how would cheese work in a scone? I’m more of a savory eater than sweet, so, I gave it a go!

They were pretty good. The texture was more like a cross between a scone and a biscuit, but leaned denser like a scone. I’m thinking, maybe add some green onions next time? What’d you think?

Colorado Green Chile Omelet

image_pdfimage_print

As we move around from state to state, I’m finding many foods are more regional than specific to one state. When I came to Colorado it was linked with many New Mexico and Arizona cuisines. Having spent a couple of weeks in the four corners region, I remember vividly the delicious, South Western foods we ate.

Colorado is like, the green chile capitol! They are in everything on every menu – and they are delicious. They even have events, like the Westwood Chile Festival, that celebrate the unique New Mexico varieties of chile. Sweet and tart with just a hint of heat. I decided to put together a Colorado inspired green chile omelet with green chile sauce. Are you ready??

Sweet Pretzel Treats

The pretzel. It can be enjoyed savory or sweet. It can be salted, dipped in mustard, or coated in icing. It’s easy to eat, satisfying, and it looks and tastes amazing. It’s little wonder pretzels are so popular, but popular they most certainly are.

Pretzel History

Pretzel, Baked Goods, Pretzels, Crispy, Salty

There are several legends that pertain to the origins of the pretzel, but the one that seems to be most widely repeated is that the pretzel was invented in 610 A.D by an Italian monk who gave them as a reward to children that learned their bible verses. 

The knot shape is said to represent the folded arms of praying children and the name pretzel stems from the word “pretiola” which means “little reward”. 

Today, the pretzel is especially popular in Germany and in parts of the USA and, as well as being able to buy store bought treats, you can buy artisanal pretzels, and there are numerous recipes you can follow if you want to pep up your pretzel dishes. Continue reading
