Thank You!

Thank you Matt and Lindsay for inviting us to Winter Park! We had the most wonderful time and enjoyed every minute of it. Your place was beautiful, the skiing amazing, and the company was perfect. We miss you already, and look forward to getting together soon! Believe it or not, I hardly took any pics. Pictured: hosts and the view.

Williams-Sonoma Croissants

We ordered these croissants from the Williams-Sonoma website and they are fantastic! They come frozen. Let them raise overnight, pop them in the oven the next morning, and you have a delicious breakfast. They come out so puffy and buttery. You must try these!

Kimball Kitchen: Pizza

[Whole Foods fresh pizza dough, tomatoe, cheese, basil]

[homemade whole wheat dough, tomatoe, cheese, fried egg, roasted red peper, olive]

We have been experimenting with homemade pizza and I think we have almost perfected the art. We have tried many different doughs: Sunflower Farmers Market dough (a frozen ball of dough), Whole Foods fresh not frozen dough (white and multi grain), and our own whole wheat recipe (that clearly didn't rise). Whole Foods dough is the best and most convenient. It is premade and has already had time to rise. We use san marzano tomatoes for sauce, fresh mozzarella, and fresh basil, equals’ incredibly tasty pizza.

Happy Birthday

We celebrated Ryan’s twenty ninth birthday last week, last stop before 30! Ryan’s new kick lately is dry aged steak. That was his one request for his birthday dinner. He called every steakhouse in Denver to see who had the oldest dry aged steak and if it was done on premise. Capital Grille won our business for the night. They dry age their beef for 28 days. Our dinner was delicious. Happy Birthday Ryan!
