Is it just me, or does this year seem to have flown by?! Time seems only to be accelerating making it important to appreciate the goodness in every day.
2014 has been full of adventure for me personally and for Boulder Locavore. With over 200 new posts, we’ve cooked together through decadent desserts, sumptuous main dishes, fun holiday recipes; dived into Smoothies, experimented with Spiralizers, poured cocktails, and fired up the slow cookers for special dishes that don’t have to be difficult to make. You’ve come along on a road trip through the Grand Canyon, Sedona and Phoenix Arizona, sharing food finds and ‘must do’ outings (one of which was a reader favorite top ten post), as well as enjoyed some spicy sips in Santa Fe!
I loved sharing the sites of Paris from our ten day stay, along with simple recipes for French food and cocktail staples (Cafe Americano, French Ham and Cheese Omelet, Chocolate Mousse, French Lavender Lemonade and Shortcut Cassoulet) and a decadent cake inspired by Marie Antoinette after visiting the Palace de Versailles. We’ve shared in the keys to conquer living gluten-free, the loss of some beloved four legged family and navigating some health hurdles and some fun DIY projects too. Boulder Locavore has been featured in a number of well-known national publications, for which we are always honored.
I feel so fortunate for your time and inviting Boulder Locavore into your homes and kitchen! We’ve folded many more readers into our extended family this year and look forward to spending 2015 together! Thank you, thank you.
