1,200 Degrees of Taste Bud Paradise

Who knew you could fall in love with a massive coal-fired oven, nearly 10 feet wide. My taste buds have never been the same since, and will probably be a little grumpy if they don’t get their 1,200 degrees of flavor from time to time! I love food but still appreciate those foods with high nutritional value so Kol is a win, win for mind and body.

My all-time favorite is the Bacon Artichoke starter. So many wonderful flavors blended together to perfection. A little red onion, blue cheese, bacon, a cage-free egg, arugula, topped with crostini…my mouth is watering all over again. #TasteBudParadise

My husband and I like to order different things and then share so we can try more than one entrée at a time so this visit we had, of course, the Italiano Pizza and the Creole Gumbo. The pizza had many of my favorites but most of all, goat cheese, and also Kol’s red sauce, fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers, red onions and pepperoni…a combo that melts in your mouth!

Then, as if my taste buds hadn’t had enough I had the spicy Creole Gumbo…wow! They are all awake now! Flavorful andouille sausage, shrimp, chicken, okra (love!), rice and crostini all married into a nice big bowl of heaven.

Born and raised in South Dakota and proud to call Rapid City and the Black Hills home. While I have lived and loved a few other cities, I knew when it was time to raise a family there was no place like home. I have a sassy 7 year old girl, an imagination-wild 10 year old boy and married to my loving husband of 20 years. Basically I live for my family, love my day job of marketing this beautiful part of the country to the rest of the world and can’t get enough of the outdoors. I enjoy hiking, gardening and what I like to call my “therapy”, aka girlfriend time.
