Pretend You’re in Paris With a Meal at Bistro Vendome

April 23, 2014 4:04 pm

Denver’s Bistro Vendome is an all-day gathering place, a spot to linger over coffee and a croissant early in the day, grab a beer at lunch, or enjoy a hearty dinner. The menu is orthodox Parisian fare, like moules, salads, omelettes, and napoleons for brunch (weekends only), or poulet roti aux herbes, duck confit, and steak tartare for dinner (nightly at 5pm).

Recipes may come from across the Atlantic but ingredients have a short trip. Idaho trout is a big favorite, for example. It wouldn’t be a bistro without steak frites and mussels, either, both of which get raves from regulars. Grab a patio seat and a bottle from the big wine list and pretend you’re on the boulevards.

Check Bistro Vendome’s website for menus, special events, and more information.

Healthy Snack Recipes to Keep You Feeling Full

April 16, 2014 4:02 pm

If you’ve ever dieted, you know how it is to feel like you’re never quite full all day long. Healthy snacking is an important part of any diet, and these healthy snack recipes will give you creative ideas to have at home or take with you on the go.

Bruschetta
The tasty favorite uses only a few ingredients to create a fresh tasting, flavorful midday snack. Simply toast a few pieces of whole-grain bread and slice up some tomatoes, olives, and red peppers for a small meal that’s both healthy and hearty.

Fruit Skewers With Yogurt Dip
Instead of cream cheese dip that's packed full of harmful calories, fruit this dip is made with fat-free yogurt, honey, and vanilla extract. By piercing a few of your favorite fruits onto a wooden skewer, this snack becomes just as portable as it is nutritious.

Turkey Pinwheels
If you’re concerned about getting enough protein throughout the day, this fun snack will keep you feeling full and energized. Whole-wheat bread, turkey, red peppers and cucumbers all rolled together into pinwheel shapes make unique alternatives to the traditional sandwich.
