Ever wander the produce aisle and find strange looking, colorful veggies that look tempting but you’re not sure what to do with them? I’m talking beets, parsnips, turnips, fennel, and multicolored carrots. This time of year, they are abundant and affordable, when most other fresh fruits and veggies are in short supply and expensive. Roots […]
Is there anything quite as nice on a cold fall day than a delicious bowl of soup? I don’t think so! Weather like this just begs for a warm bowl of soup, some fresh bread, and a crackling fire. I’ll be making this recipe tonight and cozying up in my flannel PJs by the fireplace with […]
It’s almost October, can you believe it? It seems like school just started a few days ago, right? But the chill in the air tells me that fall is here, and that means Halloween isn’t far behind. Colorado is home to dozens of farms that offer pumpkin picking, corn mazes, and more at their fall […]
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 […]
Taking a cue form my friend Julie, I recently signed up as a Chloe & Isabel Merchandiser. I felt like I spent enough money on jewelry and playing with fashion that it was a natural fit. I LOVE how it’s not a MLM and there is no pressure and I can do all of my […]
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, […]
Every fall I make these cookies. They are INSANE! The kids go nuts for them. I’m going to make them again this week with pomegranate craisins instead of cranberries. I also make a powdered sugar glaze on top. Yum!
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 weekend we gathered up the kids and headed up to the Wild West Corn Maze in Hudson. When we walked in there was a ton of stuff to do, just laid out in front of us, begging the kids to do it all! Instead of starting in the front we were able to talk […]

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!
