Grilled Peaches

If you’ve been following along, you know that I have a very big thing for Peaches, especially late season Palisade Peaches! Peaches make an amazingly sweet and healthy dessert all on their own, but sometimes you want just a little more. Throwing the peaches on the grill gives them a slightly caramelized taste and it’s always…

Cool Cucumber Avo Soup

A quick, simple and delicious cucumber avocado soup that cools you off and nourishes and hydrates your body on hot summer days.

Peach Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

This is one of my favorite times of year because Colorado’s very own Palisade peaches are in season!! They are the sweetest and most delicious peaches I’ve ever tasted and I can’t help myself from eating multiple per day. I was tempted to buy a whole crate of them at the farmers’ market yesterday, but…

Eating My Way through Pra|gue|ga|ha

Recently a friend and I spent a lovely weekend in Prague before heading down south to Croatia. It was the perfect start to our  vacation. There was plenty to see in the city and it eased us into a relaxing holiday vibe. It always takes me a while to unwind so I prefer to start in…

Seafood Chowder

Thanks to some leftover salmon from plank grilling, fresh veggies from Roost Farms, and great Seafood Landing crab and clams, I was craving some chowder. It’s not exactly what i think of when I think hot summer days, but my body has been craving salty soups! I’m still dehydrated from hot yoga and a red rocks concert…

Sweet Potato Chocolate Cake {vegan + grain free}

June was busy… busy, busy, busy. I lead into the month with a Memorial Day wedding, followed by a relatively calm first week. Then I dove right in with a 10 day trip to Prague and Dubrovnik (which was amazing!!! more to come on that soon :)) before rocking it for my  friend’s last single Hoorah at her…

Banana Muffins

I just spent a week in Croatia where they had the finest and freshest foods. They have tons of figs there and the best fig jam! I brought home a jar so I could pretend I was lounging in the Dubrovnik city walls or on a beautiful rocky shore for just a bit longer. 🙂…

Eating My Way through Cancun, Mexico

This is a little belated, but I had to share. I had the best food in Mexico! You should probably know that Mexican food is in my top 5, along with Thai and Indian (which is one of the reasons it was so so disappointing to find out I don’t do well with tomatoes or…

Hash Baked

If you’ve been following along, you probably know that breakfast is one of my favorite things. It has the power to make or break my day, and I prefer it to end up on the MAKE side :). It seems like there is no combination of eggs and sweet potatoes that I tire of. And……

Hippie Hash… aka… CSA Hash

My office just became a associated with a CSA program! For those of you who aren’t familiar, that is a local group of farmers that put together boxes of fresh produce at a very good price. The deal is you pay for a box and then you get whatever the farmers have an abundance of….

Healthy Paleo Lemon Bars

This past weekend was absolutely gorgeous. We are talking walk in the park, sundress, and bar-b-q beautiful.  And to top it off we had the perfect summer-friendly festivities to help us celebrate. A dear friend of ours graduated law school (Congrats!!!) and another friend celebrated his birthday. Naturally, both of them threw a  bar-b-q to celebrate,…

Sweet Potatoe Fries with Bitchin Sauce

Sometimes you just need a snack: a hearty, carby, delicious snack. And there’s no better time for that kind of snack than before a big day: a big day on the boat, a big day at a beer fest; or, as for me today, a big day at a wedding!! So today I’m indulging, and…

Bison Jicama Meatballs

A friend of mine hooked up a killer deal for Bison from the cattle auction at the stock show. He knows a guy who goes to the auction, picks the best free-range, grass-fed bison and auctions it. Since that is a heck of a lot of meat, he arranges to split the meat ahead of time…
