Auntie Em's Kitchen


I got a tip-off on Auntie Em's from a fellow wine taster at Colorado Wine Company, a former baker at the restaurant. Auntie Em's is pretty famous for their cupcakes and other dessert baked goods.

I'm not a cupcake expert but they were luscious. First was the Chocolate. I devoured its glossy, cocoa-beautiful, ganache-smothered fluffy chocolate cake. Then the Red Velvet. Delicious and berry-pretty but a bit drier than the chocolate. Lastly the Carrot Cake. More moist than both (also reads: fell apart when I tried to cut it into six equal pieces for the present company), it had a nice rich frosting, not that the others didn't. My fav? The Chocolate...

Their lunch menu consists of sandwiche, salads and a daily soup. The Turkey Meatloaf Sandwich was good but the half-inch slices of meatloaf were stacked one slice too high. I had to deconstruct the sandwich to level it out with one layer of meatloaf and ate the lone pieces by themselves. The bread was a tiny bit too thin for the meatloaf because the soft middle part of the bread fell apart a little bit with the ketchup and mustard and all. Taste wise good but a few things to be improved upon.

The Grilled Chicken Breast came on a delicious crusty rosemary roll. I also tried Watermelon Gazpacho for the first time and it was refreshing and tasty on such a warm afternoon. I didn't even know there was such fruit gazpacho. Now it's on my list of food to whip up, somewhere at the bottom of the very long list that is.
