  • Let's Talk About...Lost and Found

    Elise S. Marylander|Feb 21, 2024

    Ok. We have all misplaced something at times. Well, some might say "lost" something. One term is just more hopeful than the other. You can't find your keys. You can't find your wallet. You can't find your purse. But are they really "lost," or are they just not yet "found?" Recently, I couldn't find my glasses. I knew I had them the night before. I looked in the car, both under the seats and between the seats. I emptied my purse three times. I looked in every room and retraced my steps. It was...

    Philly Cheesesteak Variations Philly Cheesesteak, or as most like to say, simply "Cheesesteak," may have originated in Philadelphia, but it has taken on a life of its own. The flavor of thinly sliced steak, caramelized onions, peppers and provolone cheese (or other cheeses) resonates in many mediums. Here are a few variations on this comfort food theme for you to enjoy. Traditional Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich Adapted from House of Nash Eats https://houseofnasheats.com/philly-cheese-steaks/...

    Elise S. Marylander|Feb 14, 2024

    Ok. Three of my siblings just went to the Sphere in Las Vegas to see U2. They all agreed it was an incredible show. And as good as it was to see Bono, the star of the show was the Sphere. Interestingly the demographics looked to be people between the ages of 35 and 70. Think about it. U2 was formed in 1976 and the band had its heyday in the 80s. Still, 40 years later, they pack the Sphere night after night, with seating for 18,600 people (older people don't stand or it would hold 20,000). The...

    Espresso martinis are a great alternative to coffee at the end of a meal. A martini doesn't have the same finality to the meal as coffee does and it has just the right balance of caffeine and alcohol similar to vodka-Red Bull. Or enjoy this cocktail as a mid-afternoon drink for the same reason. Either way, they are delicious for anyone who likes coffee flavor.

  • Let's Talk About...Snow Days

    Elise S. Marylander|Feb 7, 2024

    Ok. Snow laid a thick coat over Niwot this last weekend and reminded me of the excitement of "snow days." Whatever happened to "snow days?" Remember those days when you would wake up to a blanket of snow and listen to the radio or watch the T.V. at 6:00 a.m. for "school closures?" We would huddle in the darkness of dawn desperately hoping they would name our school. We waited to know if we had to go get ready for school. We would cheer when we came to "St. Vrain Valley Schools." Sadly, that...

    Ok. I consider myself a pro at supermarket shopping. I started "going to the store" for my mom since I could drive. Things have changed since then. I recently went to the market and after frantically trying to find that particular chocolate brownie Quest bar my husband likes, the special kale and avocados my daughter prefers, and a jar of tahini so I don't have to make it myself, I was inevitability faced with the dilemma of how to check out and still make my dental appointment on time. So, I...

    Jan 24, 2024

    Who doesn't like macaroni and cheese? It's a crowd favorite and finds its way onto every table for any occasion. Whether covered in crushed potato chips, mixed with cream or made with five cheeses, it is a wintertime staple (and springtime, and summertime and fall). And even though you like your Amy's or Kraft mac and cheese from a box, try these instead. Here are a couple takes on this classic dish. You can always add bacon, seafood or chicken for protein.

  • Let's Talk About…the Kit and Caboodle

    Elise S. Marylander|Jan 17, 2024

    Ok. I have a friend whose primary language is not English. Sometimes she will ask me to explain something she heard that just doesn’t make any sense to her. For example, she recently asked me what “long in the tooth” means. She couldn’t figure out why someone thought long teeth were either an appropriate thing to comment upon or that it had anything to do with anything. Of course, I responded by telling her to get off her high horse and look it up. Well, needless to say, that didn’t...

    Elise S. Marylander|Jan 10, 2024

    OK. We have all seen the 1937 Disney animated movie “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Or have we? My son says he has never seen it, but I assure you, he has. I grew up going to the movie theater whenever “Snow White” was showing, with great excitement. It may not be “Avatar,” but it was a breakthrough miracle of animation in its time. Of course, I related to Snow White, the beautiful housekeeper who happens to be a princess. She was beautiful, could sing with the birds, had an Evil...

  • Courier Cookbook - Mulled Wine and Hot Toddy

    Jan 10, 2024

    In the cold days of winter and especially after hitting the slopes, a little hot toddy or mulled wine can hit the spot and warm you back up. Mulled wine, also known in France as vin chaud or in Germany as Gluhwein, is always a crowd pleaser and inevitably hits the spot on cold days. They are all based on warm spiced red wine with some floating fruit and can be kept on the stove for a long time. Keep it at a very low temperature since you don't want the alcohol to evaporate. Try this one when...

    Elise S. Marylander|Jan 3, 2024

    Ok. January looms ahead. Is it just me, or does it feel like January is the longest month of the year? After all the hoopla of the holidays, January tends to be pretty quiet. You have pushed the reset button on the year and now it's time to get your life back to "normal." The visitors have left, your kitchen is relatively back in order and aside from Martin Luther King Day, not much to look forward to. I like to have something to look forward to on the calendar. And I have nothing on the...

    Ok. 2023 is just about over and 2024 is patiently waiting to arrive. It is the time of year usually set aside for reflection. At the same time, it is the time of year when we are pretty exhausted from the holidays. The week between Christmas and New Year's is when work is slow, visitors start to leave, and the house is a mess. In other words, you are out of your routine and don't really know what to do with yourself. I am not sure that this is the optimal time to be making new year's...
