Still seeking more high altitude cookie recipes?

by Chef Megan Joy on December 4, 2014

Then search no further.

The cookbook is an e-book, meaning it’s a downloadable, instant-access book, right from your computer or iPad. And all of your […]

Christmas Sugar Cut-Out Cookies

Many of you have been asking for a good cut-out sugar cookie dough recipe. When iced, these kind of cookies are Zack’s favorite, so you can bet we make some variation of them every year. I stumbled across this recipe recently and decided to give it a try. I’m always open to new versions! The dough, while very soft, […]

Cheesy Biscuits

This morning we woke up to more snow. Our winter storm warning is in effect through tomorrow, so Zack’s been outside shoveling like crazy. I think he is a little obsessed with shoveling!

Favorite recipes. They can years to find, but are irreplaceable. Your go-to  time and time again. They never disappoint, only continue to impress… The tricky thing about favorite recipes is that they can also keep you from enjoying new ones. I recently discovered this.

A week ago, we were in Aspen walking around town. It started snowing like crazy, and we were totally covered in a matter of minutes!  Our valley went from mid-50’s and sunshine, with only a few little patches of snow, to a full on winter wonderland.

Where had summer gone?  This has been my busiest summer by far, filled with lots of beautiful weddings and wonderful clients, but with weddings every weekend it sure does fly.  I made these cookies on a whim the other evening.

Sifting through blueberry recipes last night, I was delighted to have discovered this one for blueberry ‘buckle’. I am new to making buckle. We’ve had cobbler, crumble, and crisps, but never this.  What is a buckle, you ask? A buckle is a type of cake (1 layer) that has a streusel on top. The name […]
