When I started working at The Spokesman-Review in April 2019, one of the first people I met in town was Kris Kilduff, whose one of many hats includes starting the Facebook group Food Finder Spokane last January. I met Kilduff, born and raised in Spokane, after Facebook exchanges, at a Secret Burger event at Prohibition Gastropub.
When it comes to breakfast, are you a sweet or savory kind of person? Do you top your waffles with strawberries and a mountain of whip cream? Or do you load an omelette with veggies and call it good? No matter which way you lean in regard to the first or second meal of the day, a bagel is a satisfying option.
To braise or not to braise, that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the kitchen to prepare vegetables with low heat and little moisture, or to use another technique from one’s culinary bag of tricks, and, with a scorching pan or rapid boil, cook them?

This soup isn’t supposed to excite me, but it does. It’s pea soup, after all, typically a metaphor for drab and boring. While it might not have the outright glamour of other soups, I am enamored with it nonetheless.

The exhausting month of December brought more local takeout and Costco freezer meals to my kitchen than I would care to admit. With my fridge filling up with leftovers and a husband and kids who were constantly home and always hungry, I needed to get creative – and fast.
Last month, I shared a copycat recipe for Olive Garden’s chicken gnocchi soup. It was a big hit, which led to requests for another one of the Italian restaurant chain’s popular soups, zuppa toscana. Loaded with hot Italian sausage, crisp bacon bits, tender rounds of potatoes and fresh kale, this hearty soup is a top-selling favorite.
The venerable Vermont ice cream company said Monday it’s introducing a line of frozen dog treats, its first foray into the lucrative pet food market. Doggie Desserts, sold in 4-ounce cups, go on sale in U.S. groceries and pet stores later this month.
U.S. employers shed jobs last month for the first time since April, cutting 140,000 positions, clear evidence that the economy is faltering as the viral pandemic tightens its grip on consumers and businesses.
The year 2020 was unlike any other, to say the least, but one thing that stood out was the innovation, talent and perseverance of the culinary and hospitality industry in Spokane, Coeur d’Alene and the surrounding areas. Restaurants and bars have closed, reopened and closed again, with the hope of reopening in January in Washington
There are a number of reasons alcohol is off-limits for some people when cooking or baking, such as an allergy or an inability to use it when preparing food for children or those who might be in recovery. Maybe it’s not in your pantry, now that we’re shopping less often, or even your budget.
Every year, to kick off January, I like to share a recipe to help jumpstart one of the most popular new year’s resolutions: eating healthier. An easy gateway to that is smoothies. They’re quick, completely customizable and great for on the go. This breakfast smoothie combines just five ingredients.
