Hello, Summertime! Grilled Peaches & Whole Foods Market Gift Card Giveaway!

Image
In Colorado we are fortunate to have access to peaches grown right in Palisades, which is on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. High Country Orchards and Kokopelli Organic Farms both supply the local Whole Foods Markets within days of harvest, so they are perfectly ripe and juicy. Even though I grew up eating the most amazing apples picked fresh from a tree, I don't think anything compares to a fresh Colorado peach.

This summer we've been experimenting with peaches and we have fallen in love with grilling them! Grilled peaches have accompanied our dinner, our dessert, and have even found their way into our breakfast!

The way we prepare them is to brush them with a little bit of maple syrup and some butter, than throw them on the grill. Yum! We make this salad with grilled peaches, but the recipe just calls for regular sliced peaches, it's turned into a go to favorite with chicken it makes a meal.

Best Drinks In Boulder! Bramble And Hare

Boulder is a great town for food, but when it comes to drinks I feel like I'm always at a loss. I don't have a go to place, but rather a few places that get the job done. It's important to make the disclaimer that I don't particularly care for sugar laden drinks, I do love Prosecco, but you can find that pretty much anywhere, so it becomes more about ambiance. I typically wind up at Pizzeria Locale because well, ambiance, drinks, and fun. Unfortunately their hours are limited for late night enjoyment. I do love the mojitos at Centro, but overall that scene isn't a huge draw for me. The Med has $5 sangria which is fabulous, but OY, the sugar. I really feel the sugar the next day. Plus the Med has the typical retirement crowd, which isn't really my vibe on a fun night out. There's also the St.Julian, meh hotel scene and the drinks are a bit pricey in my opinion, but there is dancing, bonus! We always stop into Japango for a drink, but that's only because …

Steamboat Springs, I Adore You!

Image
A few months ago friends of ours invited us to the mountains to vacation with their family in early August and of course we eagerly accepted. Due to timing, I had to take the trip solo with the girls, so we opted for a mid week into the weekend getaway. I loaded up the car with mountain bikes, our stuff, and a cooler and hit the road for a 3 hour trip. After road tripping to southern California in July, a 3 hour car trip literally felt like a cake walk. Plus, traveling in Colorado is just as beautiful as you would imagine, the time just passes with oohs and aahs of the view out the window.

We rolled into Steamboat Springs, mid afternoon, for the first time in about three years. My first thought was, my where does the time go? I've always loved Steamboat, it's a very unique mountain town, where the locals may actually out number the tourists. In Steamboat there is no shortage of things to do. There are endless mountain bike trails, hiking trails, an alpine slide, tubing on the …
