20+ Gluten-Free Game Day Recipes

As I’ve been reading about the possible last minute move of the Super Bowl due to expected inclement weather, it struck me what a big deal that would be.  I’m not just speaking of those spending several thousand dollars on tickets and travel but the tradition of it all.  ‘Super Bowl Sunday’ is one click […]

Spicy Garlic Sriracha Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry

Immediately after making this recipe (and devouring a few shrimp), I called a longtime girlfriend and left a message:  “why are we not making stir-fry e.v.e.r.y. DAY?!”  I love this dish.  Spicy, garlicky shrimp and crunchy broccoli fit for a Chinese food restaurant menu.  It’s not saucy but rather delivers the aromatic flavors straight-up, no […]

Gluten-Free Birthday Cakes: 20 Recipes & Cool Tips

It’s birthday season in our household which means I need to gear up to bake gluten-free birthday cakes galore!  Most gluten-eaters do not realize the luxury of ordering a birthday cake from a local bakeshop or grocery store.  For some who are gluten-free, there are local bakeries offering gluten-free options (though often very expensive) but […]

20 {Gluten-Free} Cinco de Mayo Food & Drink Recipes

I cannot think of a cuisine in the United States that has a more broad appeal than Mexican food.  Granted my locality lends itself to an abundance of good Mexican food with influence from the Southwest as well.  I think for me discovering my love for the spicy, earthy flavors so young it’s my ‘go […]

Lemony Romanesco with Pine Nuts

Though we are still getting dumps of snow, spring IS in the air.  There are subtle signs.  The snow quality is far wetter.  The duration it stays on the ground is fleeting, immediately melting on the pavement signaling enough warmth that winter is no longer welcome.  Most importantly the temperature between the snow showers feels […]

Crock Pot Garlic Chicken and a The Fresh 20 Giveaway!

This time of year is crazy.  For me personally I’m juggling kids with three after school activities in opposite directions, finishing at different times, and an unending list of appointments for my family, me and my house.  And though I am a food blogger, I’ll admit on many days I feel like a deer caught […]

Baked Brie with Maple-Pumpkin Butter, Honey, Marcona Almonds and Pepitas

This elegant, taste-of-fall Baked Brie could not be a more simple or fantastic appetizer!  Keep a secret?  It can be whipped up in about 20 minutes.  No one will ever know how easy it is! Along with cooler weather comes more entertaining.  Casual gatherings, dinner parties, holiday parties all prompt the need for innovative recipes […]

Spicy Shredded Pork Breakfast Tostadas

I don’t know about you but if given the time and preference I’d always opt for something with spiciness and protein for breakfast.  I’m definitely a cheese lover so if that can be roped in, all the better.  Realistically most days are a quick nosh on something lack luster like toast before I head out […]

Caldillo {Mexican Green Chile Steak Soup}

Happy November!  As much as I love Halloween, I’m ready to hunker down for some cooking and baking this month leading up to Thanksgiving.  I have some fun cookbook reviews coming up that are perfect for the season (a giveaway of the books too).  As well as some other fun surprises leading up to the […]

Lean Turkey Black Bean Quinoa Chipotle Burrito Bowls

One thing being gluten-free has offered me is a chance to reinvent standard dishes in a new ways which are healthier and often more tasty.  Inspiration has also come from some unexpected sources.  For instance, there is a great fast food drive-thru restaurant in Boulder which serves pasture-raised beef, with no antibiotics or GMOs.  Fast […]

Easy Slow Cooker Mole Chicken Thighs

As we all frantically prepare for Halloween, many in the Hispanic community are focused on other impending holidays: El Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) on November 1 and All Souls Day November 2.  Truth be told, most are not well acquainted with these holidays and often misinterpret them at face value due to […]

Mini Mascarpone Cheesecakes with Strawberry Balsamic Topping

I have always loved cheesecake but feel a bit sheepish to admit I’ve never made a sweet one until now.  A favorite Boulder Locavore reader recipe, especially for fall and winter entertaining, is Savory Blue Cheesecake {appetizer}.  You’d think a sweet confection of the cheesecake variety might have preceded that but I suppose ‘better late […]

Slow Cooker Spicy Pork Pineapple Tacos

Despite the unthinkable idea of turning on an oven in this blistering heat, a prepared meal is always appreciated in my household.  Perhaps contrary to what you’d imagine to be the most desirable summer foods; cool, juicy, refreshing dishes, a spicy Mexican-inspired meal is great anytime. I love a good dining ‘joint’.  You know what I’m […]

Chilled Strawberry Mousse and a Strawberry Spritzer

It’s hot in Colorado.  We normally don’t get regular days in the 90’s until August and we’ve experienced a handful already.  Farmers I know say we are in a drought which is not surprising after our sparse snowfall.  Anyone watching the national news will have seen a wildfire only moderately controlled after more than a […]

Salad Ole with Avocado-Tequila-Lime Dressing

It’s a mistaken fact that Cinco de Mayo (‘the fifth of May’) signifies  Mexican Indepence Day.  Not so.  On May 5, 1862 at the battle of Puebla, Mexico overpowered the French army who were considered the worldwide dominating army of the time.  To commemorate this event the Mexican-Americans living in the American West called for […]

Turkey Tortilla Soup {Out of the Mouths of Babes}

It’s funny where some of our family favorite recipes have originated.  In the case of this Turkey Tortilla Soup, the source was particularly humorous, and fortuitous I’d say as it has become one of our cold weather favorites. When my youngest tot was in second grade he bounded into my car after school on a particular […]

Chipotle Green Chile Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas

I have loved Mexican food for as long as I can remember.  Enchiladas to be precise.  You know when people remember exactly where they were when a great world event occurred?  I recall exactly where I was when I had my first enchilada: the El Burrito restaurant.  Not quite a dive, I’d call it a […]

Dealing with Gluten-Free Doubters

Recently I was looking through my Facebook stream which includes a number of news outlets.  I opened a news clip from a show called Morning Joe featuring guest Joy Behar, an outspoken comedian and former talk show host for The View, and Tom Colicchio, restauranteur and reality TV show chef.   The segment was about Tom […]
