20+ Gluten-Free Game Day Recipes

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 […]

Gluten-Free Birthday Cakes: 20 Recipes & Cool Tips

Gluten-Free Birthday Cakes |

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

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 […]

Spicy Garlic Sriracha Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry

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 […]

Lemony Romanesco with Pine Nuts

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!

Fresh 20 Crockpot Garlic Chicken #glutenfree Meal -

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

Baked Brie, Maple-Pumpkin Butter, Honey, Marcona Almonds, 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 […]

Grilled Mexican Corn {Elote}

Grilled Mexican Corn -

This weekend officially kicks off the grilling season.  Propane tanks are being filled and bags of charcoal briquettes hauled home in great anticipation!  Though technically grilling can happen anytime of the year if you have the chops to stand out in the rain and snow, it is a ritual of summer; iconic, necessary and what […]

Spicy Chipotle Chicken Breakfast Chilaquiles

Spicy Chipotle Chicken Chilaquiles -

Did you ever notice that breakfast is the only meal of the day that can be satisfied with a sweet or a savory dish?  For lunch or dinner you might have dessert afterwards, but your main dish will be savory.  I think that is a very civilized approach.  Though occasionally I’ll opt for something sweet […]

Spicy Shredded Pork Breakfast Tostadas

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 […]

Tijuana Train Wreck

Mexican Sloppy Joes meets Nachos: Tijuana Trainwreck |

I would be lying if I were to say I did not squirm a bit then hitting ‘post’ due to the title of this recipe.  Knowing this recipe was conceived of in an era before fear of being sued and being ‘PC’ were guideposts for decision making makes me feel a bit better about its […]

Caldillo {Mexican Green Chile Steak Soup}

Caldillo {Mexican Steak Soup} - BoulderLocavore #glutenfree

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 […]

Cream Cheese Bacon Salsa Spread with Black Bean Crackers {gluten-free}

Cream Cheese Bacon Salsa spread with Black Bean crackers gluten-free -

Can I make a confession?  Despite loving great food, if I could eat cheese, crackers and a glass of wine for dinner, I’d be a happy camper.  My earliest memories of crackers were at adult parties.  Reserved exclusively for the adults with fancy spreads or topped with tidy slices of cheese while the kids were […]

Mini Mascarpone Cheesecakes with Strawberry Balsamic Topping

Mini Mascarpone Cheesecakes with Strawberry Balsamic topping guten-free -

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 […]

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 […]

Lean Turkey Black Bean Quinoa Chipotle Burrito Bowls

Lean Turkey Black Bean Quinoa 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 Mexican Chicken Casserole

Easy Mexican Chicken Casserole -

I feel like I’ve been on vacation for about month now.  Not completely like a vacation but out of my normal patterns.  Over Spring Break my kids and I took a road trip to Santa Fe New Mexico for a week.  We toured a number of museums, took a cooking class, ate where the locals […]

Easy Slow Cooker Mole Chicken Thighs

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 […]

Three Berry Cobbler with Sour Cream Biscuits

Three Berry Cobbler with Sour Cream Biscuits -

We have been having a rainy, foggy start to spring.  It’s welcome, don’t get me wrong, though unusual.  Normally we soak up the sun on brighter days and cross our fingers the snow is gone for now.  Mother’s Day is the arbitrary safe planting date even though we could still get some flakes in May.
