Cinco Things 0

So, I had the best intentions to post these Cinco Things on Cinco de Mayo as I’ve done in previous years, but then I gorged on chips and salsa and sorta lost motivation. Consider this a belated Cinco de Mayo celebration….or another excuse to whip up a pitcher of margaritas. These are a few things […]

Celebration Staycation 1

Jason and I took a much-needed week off to celebrate his completion of the Colorado Bar exam. Although I didn’t spend the past several months years studying the way he did, I was still mentally exhausted just by the very thought of it. So, clearly, it was a hard-earned vacation for the both of us. […]

June Highlights 3

I just finished downloading all of the pics off of my camera from the past month. They are literally all over the map! Here are a few of the highlights from June. Carbondale is Basalt’s next door neighbor. When we need a change of pace, we love exploring Carbondale because it has a really cute […]

Cinco Things for Spring 4

Gah! The weather the past two days has been absolutely gorgeous here. It’s hard to imagine that just last Monday it was bitterly cold, windy and snaining (snow + rain) sideways. In fact, it was so pleasant today that I took my laptop to the local coffee shop and worked outside on the patio for […]

Menu Planning Perfection 2

There are tons of free printable menu planners on the interwebs, but I’ve just never been able to find “the perfect one”. I searched high and low for a planner where I could write my menu plan on one side and make a categorized grocery shopping list on the other. It helps me to see […]

What’s Cookin’ – Menu Plan for Feb. 24 – Mar. 2 4

I realize that it’s already beginning to feel like spring in many parts of the country, but winter is still in full force here and we got about 7 more inches of new snow in the mountains overnight. I’m definitely not complaining – warmer weather will be here before we know it so right now […]

What’s Cookin’ – Menu Plan for Feb. 17-23 3

My Recipes is one of my favorite places to find new dinner ideas. This website compiles tried and true recipes from magazines like Cooking Light, Southern Living, Food & Wine and Real Simple. Rarely have I made anything from here that we don’t like, especially when I stick to the ones with 4 or 5 star […]

What’s Cookin’ – Menu Plan for Feb. 10-16 4

Ah, February. You’re that tricky halfway point between Christmas vacation and Spring Break. We’re supposed to get 7-10 inches of snow in the mountains this weekend and all I can think about is jetting off to some tropical destination to bask in the sunshine with a piña colada in hand. Don’t get me wrong, I […]

What’s Cookin’ – Menu Plan for Feb. 3-9 5

Kale, a nutrient-rich superfood, has been getting a lot of hype lately as one of the healthiest vegetables on the planet. And for good reason! Not only is kale rich in antioxidants and high in vitamins A, C and K, but its also a good source for calcium, fiber, folate, iron, potassium and manganese. Some […]

What’s Cookin’ – Menu Plan for Jan. 20-26 5

I’m on a business trip right now so the hubs is fending for himself in the kitchen this week. He really is a great cook, so I’m not at all worried that he’ll go hungry. Just to be sure, I made a quick run to the grocery store before I left and stocked up on […]
