Figuring that if anyone knows how to get the best of Lodwick’s son, Todd, in a cross-country ski race, it would be the old man, so I slipped Dennis a $5 bill and whipped out my reporter’s notebook, preparing to take detailed notes.
“Start out slow, and then taper off,” Dennis whispered in my ear.

I like to think of myself as a “City-Cowgirl”. I love the country lifestyle and everything that comes with it, but I also enjoy the finer things in life. I believe there’s a way to incorporate both and you should! For example, just the other day I was out riding horses in the rain and spent the night dining at a trendy sushi spot. This is who I am and who I want to stay.
Steamboat Springs — For 21 years, The Home Ranch Executive Chef Clyde Nelson has been tucked away at the ranch in Clark, cooking gourmet food using local ingredients.
This weekend, Nelson and Chef de Cuisine Craig Singer will make an appearance in Steamboat Springs to sign copies of two new cookbooks that feature them and Routt County-inspired recipes.
Wall Street Journal…Nov, 2
New York City really is a box of chocolates. One night you’re walking the red carpet at the Met, the next, diving in the pool at Le Bain. Or, in this reporter’s case, one night, you’re jumping out of the way of square dancers in midtown; the next, trying, unsuccessfully, to avoid tasting Icelandic cuisine.First, the square dancing. Johnny Fisher is supposedly the No. 1 square-dance caller in all of Colorado. “Well, there aren’t many of us any more,” Mr. Fisher said the other night.
Let me introduce you to my friend, Jennifer Denison. Raised a Colorado country girl, Jennifer has owned horses all of her teenage and adult life. She now has Quarter Horses and a Paint, whichshe uses for trail riding and tending cattle. Horses are not only a hobby for Jennifer, but also herprofession. A senior editor and the cowboy culture editor at Western Horseman magazine, Jenniferhas made a living for more than 12 years photographing and writing about horses and the peoplewho ride them. She co-authored two horse-related books, Bringing Up Baby and BackcountryBasics. Jennifer and her ranch-raised husband, Robert, live in an antique-filled farmhouse nestled ona small acreage in the mountains outside Colorado Springs, Colorado.

When we proposed a square Dance on 5th Avenue in New York City, the idea seemed, shall we say “risky.” But the truth of the matter is that the New York State of Mind absolutely eats it up!
The Culinary team from the Home Ranch joined up with General Manager Johnny Fisher and owners Steve and Ann Stranahan to bring a unique experience to downtown New York City. As Johnny called the square dance, press writers and former Home Ranch guests spanning the country joined in to accompany those that braved the dance floor with rhythmic clapping and foot stomping, all the while enjoying the tastes of our local valley. Chefs Clyde Nelson, Philippe Shapiro and Craig Singer satisfied palettes with Yampa Valley Lamb Burger Sliders, Home Ranch Mini Pork Bratwursts, Roast Bison & Roast Beef Tenderloin fajita style, with Wild Striped Bass fish tacos, Home Ranch purple potatoes with crème freche & caviar, all with a nightcap of Palisade Peach Cobblers and homemade chocolate chip cookies.
Relais & Chateau Director Brenda Homick said it was definitely a first in her hosting of events at the Maison. “I can’t say we’ve ever danced in here, let alone have our hosts put it on. But this has to be one of the most memorable events we’ve had here in my experience.”
The Preservation Program That’s Become a Trend In Colorado
In the early 1990’s we began to be seriously concerned about the growth of unregulated development closing in on the Elk River Valley. With the help of our neighbors, John and Jay Fetcher, we brought our ranching neighbors together to talk about preserving the agricultural culture and landscape of this beautiful valley. Our combined efforts resulted in the Upper Elk River Valley Compact, a unique achievement in the conservation of American ranch lands. (more…)
