The Crinkle Top Brownies You’ve Always Wanted

By Chef Megan Joy / March 1, 2016

Hooray, it’s March! I always love this time of year as there really is a big shift in season from winter to spring. Granted, we’ll still get snow and cool weather, but there are a lot more mild days and sunshine. To kick things off, I’ve been meaning to share this recipe for awhile. Our […]


Our New Favorite Pancakes

By Chef Megan Joy / January 13, 2016

Over the holidays, I received several new cookbooks to add to my collection. One that I’ve been using a lot- Breakfast: Recipes to wake up for by George Weld and Evan Hanczor- has proven itself in the kitchen again and again. We’ve made the pancake recipe twice is the past week, and though each time I […]


Split-Second Jammies Cookies

By Chef Megan Joy / December 20, 2015

I have to travel down to Aspen a lot for work, and usually when I am down that way, I like to stop at Whole Foods and load up on a few things our local grocery doesn’t carry. If I wander through the bakery section, and notice their ‘jammies’ cookies, I usually can’t resist. The […]


High Altitude Holiday Baking: Cookies & More

By Chef Megan Joy / December 17, 2015

Since we’ve updated our website format, there are still a few bugs we’re trying to fix. One of them is that not all recipes display correctly. Since I understand how frustrating that can be, I’ll be organizing various posted based on recipe subject to assist you during this busy time of year. In addition to […]


Gingerbread Blondies

By Chef Megan Joy / December 16, 2015

I was going to make these last week, then sadly realized I didn’t have enough molasses. Pantry restocked, I tried these again yesterday for the win. Gingerbread: Timeless Recipes for Cakes, Cookies, Desserts, Ice Cream, and More author Jennifer Lindner McGlinn pulled me in with this: “Lightly cracked on top and chestnut brown in color, they […]


Let’s Bake!

By Chef Megan Joy / December 16, 2015

I’ve returned! I know it’s been a rather long absence, but let me explain… In March of this year, we moved down valley to Eagle. Amid the hustle and lack of organization that comes from a short notice move, I lost my digital camera, and have yet to find it. Right after the move came […]


Chocolate Banana Snack Cake

By Chef Megan Joy / March 7, 2015

We are moving! We’ll still be in the valley, just a bit further west. In this process, I have begun going through the freezer trying to figure out what to eat up so we don’t have to pack yet more things. It seems we always have one banana left behind in the fruit bowl that […]


Mixed Berry Scones for Your Sweetie

By Chef Megan Joy / February 12, 2015

We’ve been having great, mild weather in Colorado this past month. Mid 50’s, blue skies, plenty of sunshine. I know more snow will come, but I am so enjoying this spring-like spurt. There have even been a couple of day where I’ve been lucky enough to sport shoes, not boots! With Valentine’s Day approaching, I’ve […]


Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies

By Chef Megan Joy / January 19, 2015

Has anyone ever had those Lofthouse sugar cookies from the grocery store? You know the kind- the thick, soft sugar cookies with a sweet layer of frosting and sprinkles on the top. Well, these taste just like them. But homemade, which makes them even better. The recipe makes a lot, and that’s just fine, because […]


Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars

By Chef Megan Joy / January 11, 2015

Excuse me, while I keep easing into January. Now that we’re about 1/3 through the month, I think I am finally switching out of “holiday mode”. The first week into this month, I didn’t bake anything sweet. In fact, I didn’t really cook anything at all either. Lots of take-out or dining out. But life has […]
