Begging for Boulder Baked

April 3rd, 2018

All I wanted was a warm, melt in your mouth, fresh outta the oven, homemade cookie. It was some twist of fate that I happened to walk into Boulder Baked 1911 Broadway in Boulder. Their cookies were the only thing I came for, and they were well worth every bite. I had been craving a warm cookie for months, but I am far too lazy to make any from scratch. Boulder Baked makes the cookies for you and finding this out was as if the cookie god had heard my prayers. I ordered a double chocolate chip and a peanut butter cookie. I noticed on their menu they had gluten free and vegan cookies, and they also... Read More

All the Good Bites and Beets

March 6th, 2018

A simple google search brought me to 3303 30th St, in Boulder. I gave Blooming Beets a chance, and in return they opened up a menu of opportunities to me. I finally felt a love for food all thanks to them. It is one of the few places I have found that is a paleo only restaurant; I was endeared to it on this aspect alone. Then, throw in the fact that they can do an AIP menu on request, proudly display who they get their food from, are completely gluten and grain free, and support local vendors, I wanted to forever be bragging about Blooming Beets. I will rave to friends, family, and the internet... Read More

An Evening Dining at Leaf

February 6th, 2018

If you love elegance, quaint, and ethical eats than Leaf, Boulder’s vegetarian restaurant, is a must! I arrived for a lovely Wednesday evening at 2010 16th St. Walking into the Leaf was nothing like I had expected. It carried a classic and sophisticated ambiance, white walls and large ceilings add to the aura of a warm and timeless feel. I surveyed the room to see plenty of people in their 40s and 50s sipping wine as well as the six-year-old enjoying her personal pizza. It is far from the groovy and granola vibe of most vegetarian restaurants. Warm soft white globe light hung from the ceilings.... Read More

I sincerely hope you have been following our last two articles in response to Forbes nominating Boulder, CO the best place to start a business.  When talking about growing business and making green, it would be impossible to exclude the Colorado marijuana industry; which is expected to be valued at over ten billion by 2017.  This article is going to highlight a few of the most innovative, successful, and booming marijuana businesses planted right in Boulder County.   The amount of artistic innovation, science, and health consciousness that is going into marijuana and its developing products... Read More

Not Your Nonna’s Meatball Recipe!

December 4th, 2014

This post originally appeared on my blog, Red Wine and Lipstick:  Sometimes, I get into Italian Momma-mode and want to make the biggest, carb-iest, most comforting dish! It’s usually meatballs, which is perfectly fine because meatballs rock and you can never have too many. My mom is Italian and Mexican, and we grew up with a lot of recipes passed down from the Mexican side, and very few from the Italian side so I’ve begun to create my own dishes. These, I call my “Better Than Your Nonna’s Meatballs”. (And don’t worry, you don’t have to tell Nonna that mine are better. It’ll... Read More

Your Guide to Food Packaging and Labels Have you ever walked into the grocery store and wondered what all of the different labels on your food packages really mean? It can be difficult to navigate your way through the store to healthy products when you are unsure of what all the different labels, certifications, and names are really implying.  The purpose of this post is to try and help clarify some common terms and labels associated with different foods that you might see at your local grocery store. There are many different types of foods that are labeled in many different ways. I believe that... Read More

Bouder’s Highest Rated Restaurant is Cheaper Than You Think.

October 16th, 2014

Did you know there is a higher rated restaurant in Boulder with more Google reviews than Frasca? And it’s about 1/6th of the price! Wanna know what it is?! Curry N Kebob! The small, hole in the wall style spot (located on 28th st.) is more popular than you’d think, serving up classic Indian favorites with killer dinner specials under $10. Everything is made to order and the baji (chickpea batter-fried onion rings) are THE BEST! Like most Indian cuisine, the menu is almost entirely gluten-free, so you GF-foodies can get your fix too! I typically order my C&K for take out post-gym... 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

Rush Bowls: Healthy On The Go!

September 20th, 2014

More and more it seems that Boulder is at the forefront of innovation and business, particularly in the food industry. With the likes of Justin’s Peanut Butter, Horizon’s Milk, and Udi’s Gluten-Free, Boulder has sparked something of a natural food’s revolution. Joining that pack is Boulder favorite, Rush Bowls! The Hill staple is no longer just a place for sorority girls to get their post-yoga smoothies or for students to grab a bowl between classes. Since opening 10 years ago, Rush Bowls’ popularity has allowed them to package grab-n-go bowls available in stores across... Read More

Gluten-Free and Potions: Shine Restaurant

September 11th, 2014

Boulder is known for many things. One thing is our priority to health and immersing ourselves in the latest health food trends. So it’s not surprise there are a plethora of gluten-free, paleo, or vegan options around Boulder. (Yes, it’s true, Boulder and “gluten-free” seem to go hand in hand… at least from beyond the Boulder County borders). I realize that being gluten-free and being a foodie contradict each other, but I try to live by a 90-10 diet (90% GF, 10% not… although it’s beginning to seem a lot more 80-20.) Which is where my new favorite restaurant... Read More

The Only Labor Day Recipe You’ll Need!

August 29th, 2014

Labor Day weekend is upon us, so send summer off into the sunset with the most amazing Spicy, Sticky Chicken! And don’t worry! It won’t be long until grilling season is back to greet us next year! I love summer. Mostly because it means I’m allowed to lounge in a bathing suit all day, but also because I love summer time food! Grilling is my number one cooking method during warm months: Peaches, cherries, corn on the cob, hot dogs, pineapple, stuffed burgers… you get the point. My favorite thing to grill, you ask? Why chicken, of course! There’s no better way to enjoy chicken then... Read More

Mid-Week Brunching: Snooze An AM Eatery

July 31st, 2014

My favorite meal of the week is brunch (as with many other people I’m sure!) and sometimes it makes me a little bummed that I have to wait until the weekend to get it… That was until Snooze came to town! The Denver-favorite finally opened its doors in Boulder in the spring of 2012 right on Pearl St, and as been packed ever since! I wasn’t surprised to see it completely packed and a (well worth it) 10-minute wait on a Tuesday morning (I’m convinced nobody works in Boulder). After ordering a phenomenal iced almond milk latte at the bar, we scored an awesome table on the patio... Read More

Farmer’s Market Recipe: Rustic Cordon Bleu.

June 10th, 2014

Summertime in Boulder is one of my favorite things! It rains enough that the whole city turns green with lush trees and grass and wildflowers. With the warmer months comes the Boulder County Farmer’s Market. As a kid, I spent Saturday mornings with my mom at the local Farmer’s picking out flowers and honey sticks. I feel that nostalgia every time I’m there which is why I’ve become so adamant about going to ours every Saturday morning. It’s a great place to pick up brunch and enjoy it on the grass after meandering through the stalls. Lately, I’ve been obsessed... Read More

Zoe Ma Ma: You’ll Never Look At Take Out The Same Again.

May 22nd, 2014

If you know me, you know there is one place I’m always craving. It’s kind of my favorite restaurant… (Actually, it is my favorite restaurant…) Not many people remember it’s here. In fact, if you’re a fellow Boulderite, you’ve more than likely swiftly passed over it on your way to Pasta Jay’s or the West End. But I’m gonna let you in on this Boulder gem: Zoe Ma Ma’s. Its quite possibly some of the best traditional, Chinese, comfort food you can find. None of your typical Chinese take out of General Tsao’s or rubbery sesame chicken and rice…... 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
