Irish Soda Bread

By Chef Megan Joy / March 13, 2012

There is something that must be said about making your own bread. All over the world, different forms of bread are a staple to everyday life, and perhaps this is why creating your own it is such a satisfying and rewarding experience. The fact that soda breads do not contain yeast cannot take away this […]


Sweet Almond Orange Buns

By Chef Megan Joy / March 9, 2012

My junior year of college, I lived in a house with a bunch of my closest friends. On Sunday mornings, I used to make the original cinnamon version of these sweet buns. They come together quickly, especially since they don’t require any yeast. This skipped step is great because it frees up your time to […]


My Family Visits, And A Live Edge Table

By Chef Megan Joy / March 9, 2012

Earlier this week, my parents and little brother arrived. Cam was on his spring break from college. I was so flattered they decided to use his week off by coming out to visit me! We had a really lovely time. The weather was typical March weather in the mountains- blue skies, sunshine, warm temps, and […]


Stacked Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake

By Chef Megan Joy / March 5, 2012

There’s just something about chocolate and cheesecake. This recipe is the love child of two of my heaviest hitters. I combined fudgy chocolate truffle cake with smooth, creamy, and tangy cheesecake. And the best part? You don’t have to live at altitude to make this recipe, and you also can enjoy it as part of […]


Belgian Waffles “Suzette”

By Chef Megan Joy / March 1, 2012

My first winter job in Colorado was crazy. I refer to it as my indentured servitude, because that’s pretty much what it felt like. One of my duties was making crepes to order. I like crepes, I really do, but I probably made hundreds of crepes that winter season. The crepe station was right by […]


Vanilla-Scented Butternut Squash Quick Bread

By Chef Megan Joy / February 27, 2012

This bread reminds me of the Colorado sunshine that I adore so much- warm, bright, and comforting. The original recipe calls for pumpkin puree, but I had some butternut squash puree on hand and decided to use that. I contemplated throwing some traditional spices in, but settled on letting the round notes of the butternut […]


Chocolate Stout Cake for a Blustery Day

By Chef Megan Joy / February 26, 2012

It’s almost March! Growing up in the midwest, March makes me think of blustery, grey days. It meant that Spring was coming, but first you had to endure this last Wintery tantrum. In the Rockies, March is a little different. We still get snowstorms, but the snow melts quicker, and the temperatures rise into the […]


White Coffee Pot de Creme

By Chef Megan Joy / February 25, 2012

Living in the Rockies means you go through massive quantities of windshield wiper fluid every year. I’m not kidding. Drive down the Vail Pass when the roads are wet and just try to see through your windows. It’s ironic to think that this light and powdery snow could create such a big mess when it […]


Grapefruit Mini Cakes with Hibiscus Frosting

By Chef Megan Joy / February 17, 2012

  I have a grand baking idea for this mini cake recipe in the future. But we’ll touch on that later. Right now, the focus is on how adorable and fresh these grapefruit mini cakes are, adorned in a pastel hibiscus frosting. After working at a seasonal cuisine restaurant for almost two years, I am […]
