Buffalo Chicken Pizza, YUM

I have never been into buffalo wings (the tendons and skin and weird part of the chicken freak me out), but I have found a fondness for hot wing sauce. In fact, I think it might be the greatest condiment out there. It is rich in flavor and spicy, but usually not too spicy, and […]

Spring Pea Dip

  Spring has sprung! After a long winter season of eating hummus, this light spring dip will invigorate your taste buds. Even though the recipe calls for frozen, not fresh, peas, this dish is still a healthy option to be served and enjoyed with fresh picked dipping veggies of your choice. This is highly recommended […]

Beyond Power Bars: Bacon Chocolate Rice Muffins

The first time I made these rice-based bacon muffins, I had my doubts about them. The batter was thin, and the ingredients were a tad unusual for a muffin. But I was intrigued by the savory and sweet combination of bacon and chocolate in a healthy muffin designed to feed elite cyclists while training. The […]

Ginger Pound Cake

I stay motivated to cook by cooking new dishes as often as possible. When you repeat the same dish over and over, it can become monotonous and not seem as exciting a project. I find that when you make something new, there is always an element of mystery to it that keeps me motivated. Anything […]

Beyond Power Bars — Tahini Ginger Bars

My latest homemade power bar, the tahini ginger bar, was inspired by a snack I nibbled on in the spa lounge at the Four Seasons Resort in Jackson Hole years ago. What I was doing in the spa lounge of the Four Seasons, I can’t recall. Nor can I remember who I was with or […]

Cook a Coq au Vin Blanc

When the snow is good as it has been, it’s very hard to take time out of your busy ski schedule to cook. So, I like to be efficient and concentrate my cooking efforts into one afternoon. Most people I know who don’t cook don’t cook because they don’t know how to, but time management […]

Curried Red Lentil Coconut Soup

I am a big fan of the Meatless Mondays concept. This worldwide movement is practiced by people in almost 30 countries and attempts to remove meat from your diet for at least one day (Monday) every week. There are many global and heath benefits to this practice. Cutting out animal products from your diet at […]

Beyond Power Bars — Fuel For All Your Adventures

Anyone who’s bonked — that abrupt drop in blood sugar that makes you feel dizzy and sick — while out exercising can appreciate the benefit of having a good power bar stashed in your pack. The first time I bonked badly after moving to Jackson I was hiking up Table Mountain with my husband and some […]

Spicy Sausage and Kale Lasagna

I don’t often like to give long, detailed recipes in this column. I find that when a recipe has a lengthy ingredient list and/or really long instructions, it can be a turn off from wanting to make it. This recipe, while longer and in more steps than many others I offer, is well worth the […]

During the holidays there were a lot of special meals in our family. Starting with Christmas Eve, we served a smoked turkey, garlic green beans, macaroni and cheese, relish and chutney and a Honey Baked ham. Then again on Christmas night, we prepared another spread of beef tenderloin, Boursin cheese and kale mashed potatoes, winter […]

Ex Jackson Resident Starts Salsa Company

  Many people live in Jackson for a period of time and then leave to pursue long-term careers that are not always easy to cultivated here. One of my personal favorites, who left a year or so ago to pursue opportunities in New York City, is Andrew Bourke. In Jackson, he was a ski instructor […]

Italian-ish Black Bean and Kale Soup

Recently, I went to the grocery store without much of a plan. I knew I wanted to make a healthy soup, as we had recently been on vacation and eating more than our normal share of sweets and indulgent food. This unpreparedness can result in one of two results: leaving the store with nothing that […]

Slow Cook Your Way Through a Busy Winter

Shorter days and longer nights can really take a toll on your weeknight momentum. While summer months are filled with after-work hikes and 9 p.m. barbeques, the winter season makes us want to curl up in front of a fire with a bowl of soup and a good book. Even if we generate enough after-work […]
