Whether you’re doing date night-in or hosting a few friends for dinner, here are a few ideas to make cooking at home easier (and a little more creative, too!)
Thanksgiving has nearly arrived, and Elita is making it easier to enjoy the meal with none of the preparation. This year order their holiday classic dinner fit to feast. This Mediterranean-Latin inspired café and deli recently opened inside Stanley Marketplace. If you’re looking for something other than a Thanksgiving feast for 10, consider ordering one of their sandwiches, hummus bowls, or flatbreads to-go.
Homemade pierogis are only a call away at Baba & Pop’s! New to Aurora, Baba & Pop’s Handmade Pierogi is located on historic Colfax Avenue in Aurora’s Cultural Arts District. Diners can enjoy their savory eats to-go by the dozen. These frozen pockets come in potato & cheese, pulled pork, tomato, basil, green chili, and more. Bring them home, boil and pan fry for a delicious dinner.
Make pizza night a production! Order a meal-kit from Wood Paddle Pizza & Tap; it includes everything you need, including dough, flour, marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni, to make a tasty restaurant-style pizza in your own home. Get creative and add your own toppings for a one-of-a-kind pizza your family will love. Bonus points – tag them on social media and boost your chance to win a free dessert.
Surprise your friends with an upscale dinner from Cattivella. Their Family Style Prime Rib comes complete with portions of slowly roasted prime rib and crispy rosemary potatoes. Diners can choose between a grilled romaine salad or spinach and arugula. Enjoy crunch bread and a delightful piece of tiramisu.
Thanksgiving is near; let Mondo Market do the cooking with one of their fantastic holiday-0themed meal kits. Diners can expect the Thanksgiving classics, like turkey and mashed potatoes alongside other savory sides. Host up to 12 people or have a small gathering. If you’re not into Thanksgiving eats, their deli has a section of cheese boards and holiday breakfast dishes.
Wake up to the smell of fresh coffee from one of Aurora’s local roasters. Located on Colfax Ave, Jubilee Roasting Company is one of the city’s most notable roasters. Enjoy a wide selection of coffee beans with delightful notes of flavor and roasted to perfection. Endless Grind Coffee has fair-traded, organic coffee beans that are busting with flavor and Ethiopian roots. Sustainably enjoy your coffee from Logan House Coffee inside Stanley Marketplace. Their beans are packaged in re-purposed wine bottles that are fully recyclable.
