Dear Denver, Is It Winter or Fall?

Dear Denver, Is it Winter or Fall? We got our first snow fall here in Denver this past weekend.  While I think the snow is pretty, I don’t think it’s super pretty in October.  You see, I love fall.  It is my favorite season.  Sunny, warm days with a chill at night.  Leaves changing color. …

Caesar Salad

Brian makes the BEST salads…or at least I think that because let’s get real…I didn’t have to make it myself.  Now, some salads are simple and easy and some are more complex.  Let’s take Caesar salad for an example.  This one is pretty simple, or at least I think.  However, even though it is simple,…

Oh B.L.A.T.T.

The other day was International Bacon Day…so of course we had to oblige and have something that involved bacon for our meal.  I mean come on…we’ve already done one whole blog dedicated to bacon alone.  I’m sure it won’t be the last post on bacon too.  It seems to be a staple item in our…

Holy Cucumber and A Hail Storm

What are we going to do with all these cucumbers?  We said to ourselves as we have an overabundance of them in our garden this year.  You see, when we planted our garden, we thought, hey lets try cucumbers this year and bought a 4 pack of plants, because, let’s be honest, that’s all they…

Same Blog, New Name

After lots of discussion and throwing ideas around, we finally decided to give this blog an official name instead of our own names.  I mean, we have great names, but this blog is more about food and less about us, so we have officially named our blog Cutting Board Confessions.  Why you ask?  Well, let’s…

How To Construct The Best Burger

So, we like chicken and eat a lot of it. Every once in a while we will throw in something different like a good burger! We went on a kick a month back where it seemed like we were making burgers at least once a week.  It could have been that it was summertime, which…

Top 6 Things I’ve Learned While Living With A Chef

Brian and I have been together for almost 4 years.  I think he’s kinda stuck with me now.  Plus, I don’t know many people who would laugh at all his corny jokes.  I do! I had some preconceived ideas about what it would be like living with a chef early on in the relationship.  Some…

Kinda Store Bought, Kinda Gourmet

Ever want a quick meal with store bought items but taste gourmet?  We have this pasta dish that does just that.  We make this every so often.  If it were left to Brian, we would have this dish more than we do!  Our problem with making it is, that we feel the need to make…

Grilled Bacon

Bacon, oh delicious bacon, how we love thee…unless you are vegetarian or vegan or simply don’t like bacon.  If you are the last one then I don’t think we can be friends. Sometimes our meals are centered around bacon.  Yes, we start with bacon and then wonder what else to have with it.  And, confession…

What Do You Want For Dinner?

This is the question that I get asked every day.  Yes, EVERY.DAY.  You see, my guy will make me just about anything I ask for.  My challenge is, what should I ask for.  I could eat the same thing day in and day out and not think twice about it.  Or, I could simply eat…
