Hi(gh) from Colorado

No longer in the “empire state of mind”, we’ve adjusted in to a different “state of being,” our Rocky Mountain high…  truly, it makes a difference being a mile (plus) above sea level.  It has taken me 3 solid months before I could hike the mountains without huffing and puffing.  And I don’t mean THAT kind of puffing.  But hey, altitude or attitude- you pick.


I have seen quite a few new “stores” that I did not find in New York.  Some of them inspired the cookies below.  My Colorado cookie recipe has remained the same; no new ingredients have been added.  I feel like folks here having the munchies is good enough for my business…. 😉


Lobster Award

wpid-wp-1428028557165Ah shucks.  Totally surprised and pleased to be nominated for the Lobster Award (er, Liebster Award) by Art of Food Puns ; it’s a sweet way of spotlighting small, newer blogs. If you are a fan of puns, please check out Art of Food Puns! Full of chortling out-loud, clever word play.  Hurray for another person who believes that it’s totally okay to play with your food!

Here are the questions they would like us to answer:

1. What’s the most delicious food/meal you’ve ever eaten? Who made it?

When I was etty betty, I liked my mom’s spaghetti.  Is that alright already?

2. Name your favorite vegetable.

Lettuce live with peas and hominy (ok, maybe not hominy but definitely lettuce and peas)

3. What inspired you today?

Guiry’s- the art supply and paint store.  And my children.  Always my children.

4. Give us a pun! 

Lettuce Romaine friends, oh kale yeah!

Per the pass-it-on protocol, here is the blog I would like to nominate for the Liebster Award. I am off-topic as he is not a startup blog and has quite the huge following… but you really have to check his material.  So, so brilliant. Really, really:

Wrong Hands (the incredible John Atkinson)
