Each year, the Navigators at Glen Eyrie present a truly unique holiday offering, the madrigal banquet at the former residence of Colorado Springs’ founder, William Jackson Palmer. The banquet was the brainchild of Springs resident Dave McIntosh who has been transforming the castle into a middle-ages holiday wonderland and feasting hall for the past 22 years with the help of countless volunteers. Come along on this video journey as we speak with McIntosh about the madrigal banquet and take a sneak peak at the mellifluous, multi-course banquet.Continue Reading →
The mobile slaughter unit we profiled in the Septembers edition of Western Skies will be on hand tomorrow at Venetucci Farm for a demonstration of how this kind of small-time processing can connect consumers with the food they eat. Very few people in the US ever get the opportunity to have a literal ranch-to-table experience and we highly recommend this for those who want to have a more complete understanding of how their meat can be processed in a humane and healthy way on the land where it was raised by a person who lives in our community.Continue Reading →
Last summer, we took you on a tour of a Buckminster Fuller-style geo-dome greenhouse made on the cheap by John Sondericker in his back yard. We went back this summer to see how it went last summer and what modifications had to be made and how it changed his cost among many other things he learned.Continue Reading →
If you’re like most of the folks we know, you not only have a garden full of baseball-bat-sized zucchinis, but also the baseball-bat-sized zucchinis of your thoughtful neighbors darkening the counters and crispers in your kitchen. For the amount of zucchini used and overall moistness and flavor, we think you’ll be hard pressed to beat this recipe.Continue Reading →

If the Renaissance Festival in Larkspur, Colorado is, essentially, one big outdoor, participatory Renaissance-themed theater even, then it is definitely a comedy, and anachronisms are among the funniest jokes. The King with a tray of French Fries, a young squire on his iPhone, a swashbuckling pirate with a Marlboro light and an Iron Man watch: here in this slide show we bring you some of our favorites.Continue Reading →

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to get your garden on. Here’s a long, but informative piece from last year with Pikes Peak Urban Garden’s Elise Bowan that should get you in the mood.
OK, we know this slideshow is long at 25 minutes. But there was so much interesting […]Continue Reading →
We would never describe ourselves as foodies, but we occasionally come across a recipe so simple and so delicious (see our Idiot-Proof, High-Altitude Recession Bread) that we feel compelled to share it with you in hopes of goading busy/lazy mediocre cooks like ourselves into gardening, cooking, eating well and saving money.
So […]Continue Reading →
Far and away one of our most popular posts, we’ve gotten so many requests for this recipe that we thought we’d post it again. Happy Monday!
OK, I suck at baking, am cheap, lazy, dumb and live at an altitude that I’m sure would make it almost impossible to bake anything if I […]Continue Reading →
We were waiting for the rain to let up a bit before we posted this, one of our favorite summertime recipes: Betty Crocker Blue Corn Cuban Pancakes.

That said, even I am capable of making this perfect, beautiful, moist, delicious, yeasty bread (with apologies to the enemies of gluten). […]Continue Reading →
