I always suspected I was doing something wrong when I’d try to roast pumpkin seeds every year. They’d always seem to come out rubbery, instead of crunchy and nutty. Plus there was that whole nasty task of separating the seeds from the pulp. So when the kids asked if I’d roast their seeds after […]
I was invited to an event at Colorado Mills Outlet Mall in Lakewood, Colorado. Twist my arm will you?! Of course I jumped right on that event, especially since I’ve been a mallrat since birth, and been shopping at “The Mills” since it opened. I’ve been over every inch of that mall. Walked around for hours with […]
One of the things I love most about the seasonal and local approach that my family and I have towards what we eat, is that we mark the seasons in terms of fruits and vegetables. Winter brings citrus and pomegranate, Spring means asparagus, lettuce, and strawberries. Summer comes with berries, cherries, cucumbers, corn, peaches… But […]
A good friend of mine, Maggie, is launching a new career as a Jamberry Nail Wraps consultant. This makes me so happy because I’m slightly obsessed with Jamberry! I have amassed quite the collection of nail wraps. So many pair perfectly with my new launch with Chloe & Isabel! Here are a few looks that […]
Many schools in the metro area have a long weekend either this weekend or next for conferences, and it’s a perfect time to fit in a visit to the pumpkin patch! There are hundreds, all along the front range, but we’ve collected our favorite pick-your-own patches as well as harvest festivals for some down-on-the-farm […]
On a 95-degree day in the middle of July, Fall was in the air! The Colorado Convention Center buzzed with beautiful, well-dressed women who were all a part of the CAbi Scoop–a twice-yearly event put on by CAbi to preview the new designs for each season, and treat their reps to 3 days of training, […]
Thanksgiving was almost a week ago. I know some of you still have some turkey and cranberries leftover, right?! I did and made the same recipe I make every year, about this time. A Thanksgiving Turkey Wreath! I love it because it’s easy and I often have all the ingredients on hand. The kids like […]
My grandmother always had the BEST Thanksgiving dinners. I had been drooling just thinking about her sweet potato casserole when I looked in a recipe box she left me when she passed, and there it was! Hallelujah! Since it’s the season of Giving and whatnot, I am sharing it with all of you along with […]
This recipe scared me a bit with the use of salad dressing, but it is sooooo good and super easy!
Now if you know me, I hate “squishy fruit”. I don’t liked cooked or mushy fruit, just a weird thing with me. So… That said, I tend to keep the apple slices pretty thick so they stay a bit firm with this dessert. DH likes the apples more tender, it’s all personal preference and how […]
Another recipe of my husbands. This is best if you make it the night before and let it chill. If you do make it the day of, increase sugar to 3/4 c. My mouth is watering just thinking of this!
Dressing? Stuffing? What do you call it in your family? I don’t care what it’s called as long as my hubby makes his famous recipe! I hope he’s okay with me sharing it with all of you, I kinda forgot to ask.
Another great recipe from a member of our forums! This one comes to us from Mandi! She says she makes this all the time and it’s a hit with the family! She said you can even make 2 meals out of one!
