A recent confectionary trend has been the substitution of vegetables for sweeter ingredients offering unlikely yet complimentary flavors. Zucchini is a logical substitution as it’s lighter flavor profile and smooth texture coupled with high water content yields mild but predictable results. I began to wonder what other vegetables could be integrated into recipes and go […]

This weekend was the season finale of Game of Thrones and we celebrated at a friend’s house with a big cookout and viewing party. Naturally, I wanted to bake something but found myself a bit short on time. With the clock ticking, I went to one of my most trusted, no-fail recipes: Chocolate Crackle Cookies. They’re simple, delicious, […]
Jackson Hole is a peaceful place, save for the gunshots that ring out near nightly on Town Square. But even they are done in good fun. Like all lively traditions, the Jackson Hole Shootout began with a rowdy legend hatched in 1957 as a way to lure visitors to town. Its exact genesis remains a mystery: could […]

Spring is definitely in the air here in Jackson, WYO.

Accordingly, my spring shopping lists […]
Sunday brunch is a foreign concept in Jackson. Weekend days exist to be filled with adventure, not spent sitting down at a table as servers do all of the exercise.

A museum’s collection can seem mysterious, built over decades of donations, purchases and commissions, driven by an enigmatic curatorial eye. On exhibit, the collection appears complete, carefully woven so as to show no sign of dangling or missing threads. In reality, an institutional collection is an ever-evolving organism, nurtured by museum leaders, trustees and patrons. […]

I asked my mom for a delicious German Chocolate Cake recipe and she passed along this one from the 1969 edition of The Betty Crocker Cookbook.

Oak barrels, long the domain of wine and whiskey, are now associated with a trend in cocktails: bartenders the world over are aging libations in oak for weeks on end.

It has been a magical winter so far, and today is a bright, cold, brilliant day. The sky is bluer than blue, the sun’s scattering armloads of glitter over the deep snow (77” on the mountaintops!). When you’re on the slopes, it seems like you’re skiing through fairy dust: turn your tips and the […]

The days surrounding Halloween have always possessed a certain confidence, a reassurance to all that Autumn is at its peak.

However, in Jackson, where the blustery, […]
In the wake of a busy schedule, countless meetings, phone calls and the unending “ding” of new e-mail alerts, sometimes the most reassuring solace lies in the pages of a good book. It’s in this moment where you allow an author to chip away the monotony of the outside world and lead you by the […]
When it comes to autumn in Jackson Hole, the first thing you notice is the warmth.
