Maggiano’s Murder Mimosas

Have you ever been to a murder dinner party or something like that?

I remember hearing about them several years ago but had never been to one…Brad found a brunch one and thought that I’d enjoy it.

Neither of us are sure what to think after having gone to it…

Valentine’s Day at Ignite Kitchen

This year for Valentine’s Day Brad and I had dinner at Ignite Kitchen in downtown Denver, kind of by Coors Field.  Neither of us had ever been there before and I’m not sure how Brad found this place but it was great!  It seems like it’s a fairly small place with a fairly simple menu but what we had really was great; we sat on the main floor in the bar area but there’s also an upstairs area with a patio that is supposed to have a great view.

They had a special menu that night which is also their menu for 5280 Restaurant Week.  It consisted of an appetizer, entree, and dessert for each person for only $25 each.

Best Ever Banana Bread (or Muffins)

This recipe is incredible…it may even be life changing.

Growing up I never really liked fruit or veggie breads…not banana bread, not zucchini bread, not carrot cake…none of it.  There was always something about the texture and sweetness that bugged me.  A few years ago my mom found a recipe while watching the Food Network that she decided to try out…Bobby Flay’s Espresso-Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.  She actually made it that day after watching that show and the results were amazing.  This recipe is based on that but altered slightly to my tastes.  I’ve made this numerous times for multiple people and everyone has devoured it.  It is a pretty easy recipe for that well of a reception.

The original recipe was intended as bread but more often than not I make it as muffins.
