Why We Love Joey’s Handheld Pancakes

June 27th, 2016

One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning is to pay a visit to the Boulder Farmers Market. I love sampling the wide variety of local honey, salsa, and delicious vegetables, but never would I think to stumble upon something so unique as Joey’s Handheld Pancakes. Joey’s Pancakes are a lovely local business that boasts delicious homemade and “unordinary” pancakes made from fresh almond milk, greens, organic grains, coconut oil, and sweetened with fruit. They are pre-made and packaged with delight, available only at local Alfalfa’s grocery stores and the Boulder... Read More

Emily is working for her sister’s local honey business called “Lazy Bee Ranch.”  This honey company prides itself on using raw and natural flavors to create their delicious honeys!  Based out of Hudson, CO; Emily estimates that they own about 400 colonies of bees in not only Hudson but also in Lafayette and near Fort Collins.  Emily’s sister Katie is the beekeeper as well as the owner, while Emily takes part in making the “whipped” honey. Emily was out at the Boulder Farmer’s Market today selling three of their flavors including: Wildflower... Read More

Outdoor Fun This Weekend

June 12th, 2015

Well it’s finally summer in Boulder! Time to put away the skis (well you have until A Basin closes), hit the farmer’s market, lounge by the Rez, and dine alfresco. Honestly there is no shortage of things to do in Boulder in the summer. (I’m personally very excited to be using my Boulder Passport for 2 for 1 tasty beverages around town). Without a doubt you gotta be outdoors for summer in Boulder; unless its a thunderstorm when you are given the excuse to get comfy indoors. Here’s some ways to spend this weekend outside: 1. Take a hike! Scan through City of Boulder Open Space... Read More

Fall Weather Home Cookin.

October 2nd, 2014

October is definitely my favorite month. It’s not my birthday month, nor has any noteworthy life event happened to me during the pre-Halloween season, but I just love it! I love how it makes me feel. Everything is cozier, sweeter and comforting. As the days get cooler and nights grow longer, I wave goodbye to roof top drinks and backyard grilling. I turn to one of my favorite cooking methods: the crockpot. I all but forget I own multiple slow cookers/crock pots between April-August but once September hits, I use any excuse to use it? Oh, it drizzled this morning? Crock pot. Oh, you feel... Read More

Taco Wednesday

September 24th, 2014

It’s Taco Tuesday!  Okay, it’s Wednesday, but it was Tuesday when I made the tacos so it still counts.  And really, who doesn’t love tacos?  I could probably eat them every day, if my wife wouldn’t object.  The Boulder area has some fantastic taco places, from Cyclhops in Longmont to Illegal Pete’s locations on the Hill and Pearl. But I’m not going to sit here and tell you where to buy tacos.  I could go on for days, pages even!  No, better still I’m going to share with you my DIY taco smorgasbord made with mostly local ingredients pillaged (and paid... Read More

The Farm to Your Table

September 17th, 2014

We’re lucky here in Boulder County to be blessed with amazing food all year round.  Better still, we’re lucky to have some of the best Farmer’s Markets I’ve experienced in my life.  Something about walking down the street, smelling vendors serving hot food, seeing all the gorgeous produce and getting to talk to farmers, vintners, cheesemakers and chefs gets me excited. The Boulder County Farmer’s Markets run for almost half a year, from early April to the last weekend in November, making for an excellent opportunity to see the full range of seasonal produce.  Many of the vendors, from... Read More

An Ode To The Peach

September 10th, 2014

It’s September already here in Boulder County and soon enough the leaves will start to turn and that first October snow will be on us.  Fortunately for us, the local Farmer’s Markets are still bustling and we can reap the benefits of summer for a little while longer.  Nestled on the Front Range, we have access to a bounty of amazing food grown within a day’s drive.  Access to the wildly varied seasonal produce and Boulder’s blooming food culture were what brought my wife and I here in the first place, among a thousand other reasons. It wasn’t that hard to think... Read More

A Trip to the Boulder County Farmers’ Market

September 1st, 2013

On Wednesday, August 28, I decided to get out of the house and stroll over to the Boulder Farmers’ Market for a real “only in Boulder” experience, and I’m happy to say that I got what I came for. I arrived at the market at around 5:30 p.m and found the place crawling with people. All walks of life were present here, ranging from old dreadlocked hippies to young dreadlocked hippies. There were also plenty of families with young children, students, and a handful of colorful characters, including a man in a superhero costume and a man in a tie-dye jumpsuit making balloon animals.... Read More
