Harvest Snaps Giveaway!

For months, I have seen the Harvest Snaps bags on top of our salad bar at my Whole Foods. They always seemed to fly of the shelves, but I had never tried them. I had no idea what I was missing! Recently, I was able to try 6 different flavors of Harvest Snaps; I think I am addicted.

Sweet Potato Gnocchi w/ Sage Brown Butter

Summer has officially ended. There are no more leftover zucchinis lurking in my fridge, the cute little baby heirloom tomatoes are gone, and my herb plants have had enough. I just bought a new pair of snow boots, I added an extra blanket to our bed, and Arapahoe Basin has officially opened the white strip of death (this is when the ski hill opens with only one run).

Pork Green Chile

It is officially soup season. The tops of the mountains have had a dusting of snow for some time now, my windshield is frosted over each morning and I’ve busted out the crock pot. I love making soup; there is so much room for creativity and experimentation. It is also a great way to use up leftover groceries that may be going bad.

French Bread

Fall is in the air in Summit County. The aspens are lit up like fire across the mountains, the mornings are brisk and the tourists have gone home for the summer. Life is good. I always say that I don’t want summer to end, but am pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoy autumn. As hard as it is to say during our amazing summers in Colorado, I really love all the seasons- especially right as they are changing. There is a cozy feeling about autumn that makes me want to bake- warm, fluffy bread.

Beer Battered Fish ‘N’ Chips

The rain has finally slowed down here in Summit County; although Fall is peaking her head in from time to time. It is hard to believe that it has already been a year since I left for my trip to SE Asia. I am trying to hold on to every ounce of Summer that I can! These Fish N Chips are literally the best I have ever had- even compared to restaurants!- and so easy to make!
