Colorado Table

While loaded with toppings, this pie from Hungry Howie's in Aurora — and many others like it — is sold with the promise of one of the chain's eight flavored crusts.

Rivaling Pizza Hut’s recent brand overhaul and addition of eight unique crust profiles, Howie’s offers eight crust varieties of its own: cajun, sesame, butter, butter cheese (we’re very curious as to the similarity to cheese whiz, here), garlic herb, ranch, onion and asiago cheese.

Straight up fresh lemonade is, of course, delicious. It’s the classic summer refreshment. And we’re going to walk you through making a truly wonderful basic lemonade, as well as some terrific infused lemonades that doctor up that basic batch with some fantastic complementary flavors.

For customers that don’t know who Colonel Sanders is, KFC is giving them an online history lesson. At, the fast food chain gives details about Colonel Sanders’ past, including that he dropped out of school in the sixth grade. There’s also a video game on the site featuring Sanders, who was born in 1890.

The plan calls for restoring 7 million acres of bee habitat in the next five years. Numerous federal agencies will have to find ways to grow plants on federal lands that are more varied and better for bees to eat because scientists have worried that large land tracts that grow only one crop have hurt bee nutrition.

It’s all very transportable and all very easy to eat while perched on a blanket in the grass. But dessert can prove less obvious. Sure, you could do cookies. But what else? The usual cakes and cupcakes and ice creams and whipped this-and-thats just won’t hold up to being hauled into the park on a warm day.

All of which is to say, I take my ketchup seriously. And yet, I’ve never been a ketchup snob. Heinz? Hunt’s? All good. Muir Glenn and Annie’s Naturals when I’m feeling virtuous? Also good. Store brand when I’m feeling cheap? On it. Sir Kensington’s when I’m peckish for something posh? All over that.

If clams aren’t your thing, you could substitute shelled raw shrimp, scallops or chunks of haddock (the cooking times would be about the same). If you opt for scallops or haddock, you might as well dress the dish up a bit with finishing touch of crumbled cooked bacon.
