November 17th, 2018

Thanksgiving is next week and there are several of us who will be shopping for foods this weekend, and all next week, leading up to the big day! We all know the classic casseroles, stuffings, and desserts, but have you considered adding hemp foods to your menu? For some, hemp foods can be new to cook with, and there isn’t a lot of direction for how to add hemp to your Thanksgiving, until now!

The event was such a success,... 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

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

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

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

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
