I happened upon a tasting party at the new Gotta' Love It! Kitchen at 2521 W. Colorado Ave. in Old Colorado City yesterday.
Though Matthew Schniper first reported on the new business here and here, I was just wandering by with some friends after a filling breakfast at Gertrude's on our way to the final farmers market of the season.
Had my stomach not already been stuffed with Greek omelette, banana bread and chai, I would have taste-tested all of the samples — including tamales, salsa, pesto, cookies, wedding cake and cupcakes. In the end though, I couldn't resist giving a mini sweet potato cupcake made by Mya Bella Cupcakes a try. And it was excellent. One of my friends tried the lemon vanilla cupcake and enjoyed it as well. Her main comment though, was a hope that Mya Bella would continue to sell the mini size. It's the perfect afternoon treat.
Here's the complete list of who's who at Gotta' Love It!:
And while the typos in their signs make me cringe a little (I am a copy editor, after all), it's really about the food, and supporting local business. If you've got some spare time today, the Gotta' Love It! crew is doing it all over again between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
