Beef and Bean Chili


I love Chili on a cold snowy wintry night. I always have ingredients on hand to make chili. We have had guests in the B&B that have gotten snowed in and I can always whip up a batch of chili and cornbread to serve them. It's my go-to comfort food during the cold Colorado winter months. It's easy to make, and can easily be changed up to personalize it just the way you want it.…... view full recipe

Fettuccine Alfredo

Fettuccine Alfredo

Fettuccine Alfredo is one of those decadent pasta dishes that we like to order when we want to spurge on our pasta dinner. It's actually really simple to make and only takes a few ingredients. You can change it up by adding grilled chicken strips, cooked shrimp, peas, zucchini, carrots, roasted red bell peppers, and more. Be creative and jazz it up or keep it simple and traditional.

cooked red deer meat with a charred crust

Grilled Venison Backstrap

My hubby went deer hunting for the first time last weekend and got a deer. I know, he killed Bambi. But, it's not for sport (well, maybe a little bit), it's for food. I have personally  never been a fan of gamey tasting meat, but have really enjoyed some game meat when it's cooked well, especially wild boar. He needs to go boar hunting next time. Anyway, now that we have venison, I need to…... view full recipe

Crispy Golden Fried Coconut Shrimp with a yellow pina colada dipping sauce

Coconut Shrimp

Coconut Shrimp is one of those amazing seafood recipes that you just can't get enough of. Part of it is the crunchy sweet breading and and meaty shrimp, and part is the dipping sauce. I just can't get enough of either one when I have coconut shrimp. I have found just the right breading mix and not just one, but two dipping sauces to enjoy while eating this shrimp. Try either our Orange Marmalade Dipping…... view full recipe

Chicken Salad on lettuce and croissants

Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad is one of those great dishes that becomes a staple for a summer salad or sandwich. There is such a variety of ways you can serve this salad. Serve it over a bed of bib lettuce as a refreshing summer salad, or even a fairly healthy main entree, serve it in some whole grain bread for a sandwich, or serve it on mini croissants for a fancier sandwich and served at a tea…... view full recipe

Cheese Fondue

Who doesn't love Fondue?! We do! I have tried numerous fondue recipes over the years and this by far has been our favorite cheese fondue recipe.

Freshly sliced apples and pears, along with some grapes are also an excellent accompaniment to this delicious cheese sauce.…... view full recipe
