Meet the Ghost Hunters on Wednesday, October 10 at 6 p.m. at the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch! Denver's leading ghost hunters, Spirit Paranormal Investigations, will provide a fun and informative presentation about ghosts and the art of ghost hunting. SpiritPI will share spooky stories about what it's like to investigate the paranormal and demonstrate the tools they use to detect ghosts.
Let's Bring Back: one of the superstars of the 1980s kitchen -- Monkey Bread.
When I was in high school, my mom discovered a great recipe for turning refrigerator rolls into the most amazing pull-apart dessert bread. Called Monkey Bread, it was a favored recipe of the 1980s, partly because Nancy Reagan made it a staple at casual White House functions. But the origins of the name Monkey Bread are as murky as the origins of the recipe itself.
This groom's cake, created by ABC Cake Shop & Bakery in New Mexico, is a 3D replica of the Denver Public Library. It is iced completely in buttercream with airbrushing for the windows. I stumbled across it on Twitter and couldn't believe my eyes!
