One night we were talking after dinner, trying to remember how we had concocted a particularly good cocktail a few weeks earlier. We realized it was lost to the sands of time… neither of us had thought to write it down.
From that small tragedy, the idea for this blog was borne. A place to record kitchen successes and disasters, cocktails and confections. Christian loves nothing more than coming home from a long day at work and whipping up a fresh homemade meal. Kate loves to invent cocktails to enjoy with said meals [or uncork a nice wine].
We have both spent time working on farms, and are currently learning the intricacies of hunting and foraging as another means of putting food on the table and in the pantry. Christian is teaching Kate about butchering, and Kate is teaching Christian how to ride horses. When we’re not eating great food at home, we can often be found sussing out Greasy Spoons in the area. Life is all about balance [and diner food is great, too].
We live in the small town of Lyons, CO in the foothills of the Rockies with our 3 dogs, Buttertruck, and a pretty cool 1950s-era slicer. Our two horses and a goat named Biff live nearby.
Join us at the dinner table sometime!
