Radicchio Salad with Frisée and Apples

Posted on January 26, 2010

The other night I had the privilege of eating this amazing gluten free salad at Frasca, a fabulous restaurant in downtown Boulder. Their salad however, had salami, while mine, for a little hit of protein, contains walnuts.

I served this salad with dinner Sunday night while my 3 boys (2 children and husband) watched the NFL playoffs.  Dinner (and this salad) were a hit (even though the Jets lost).

Boulder Bookstore Signing

Posted on September 16, 2009

Last night’s signing at the Boulder Bookstore was a blast.  First, because it is our local bookstore.  The boys and I walk down there and hang out skimming books at least once a week.  And last night was no different –we walked to the signing!

It was so special to talk about and sign my book just a few blocks from my house at the store we frequent regularly.  In fact, I feel a bit sentimental about it. I also really ... read more →

Gluten-Free Restaurants in Boulder

Posted on August 18, 2009

Below is a list of my favorite restaurants in Boulder Colorado. I am asked by readers daily about good restaurants here in Boulder that will cater to special dietary needs and work for those eating gluten free.

Keep in mind, these restaurants for the most part do not have dedicated gluten free kitchens, or even gluten free menus.  They are simply restaurants that I go to that have great, fresh, wholesome food (well, at least the restaurants listed in the first box) ... read more →

Raw Kale Shiitake Salad

Posted on June 30, 2009

The other night I went to a fabulous event in Boulder hosted by Bauman College. During this evening one of the graduates from Bauman’s chef program did a great cooking demo for a raw kale salad with shiitake mushrooms (it had a number of other ingredients as well).

The next day, I was determined to make my a version of my own. Before that evening, I had not thought of eating raw mushrooms, however, after tasting the Bauman salad, ... read more →

City Survey

Posted on August 9, 2007

A debate is brewing here in Boulder about a survey that the City Council wants to send out to 3,500 citizens. The cost of the survey would be $100,000 and the results would come in just before at least 4 (though possibly 7) of our 9 incumbent council members vacate their seats.

Below is a letter I wrote to the editor of our local newspaper, The Daily Camera, that was published online August 6th and printed in the paper the following ... read more →

Product Review: Nau

Posted on June 12, 2007

In spring of 2005, Eric Reynolds, the visionary creator of the company Marmot, contacted me. He wanted to pitch what he said would be the next big thing in retail. He arrived at my office, laptop in tow and we pored over his spreadsheets and business plan.

His ambitious venture: to launch a chain of environmentally friendly clothing stores. I was in.

His concept included minimalist stores constructed of recycled materials which would sell 100% organic cotton clothing; the pièce ... read more →

Product Review: Boulder’s Best Organics

Posted on May 29, 2007

Boulder is often called the “Mount Olympus” of the organic food industry. Boulder’s Best Organics, a web based business, provides a pantheon of locally made products including soaps, chocolate, wine and tea.

This company offers a convenient way to ship a Rocky Mountain gift basket to far off friends and relatives who need a fix of Boulder. When my friend Stephanie had her baby, I sent a basket of postpartum pampering treats including lotion, chocolate and wine.
