Coconut Coffee Scrub

There’s a whole lotta things I love about Boulder. And composting is at the top of the list, right about now. I’d composted at home YEARS ago, when I was growing an abundant garden every season and actually had a solid purpose for the compost. In recent years, sans garden, I’d stopped doing it and […]

Thai Carrot Butternut Squash Soup

If you read one of my more recent posts, you knew that I was a HUGE fan of the simple, yet delicous soup I enjoyed at Next Door recently. And we all know that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Is it? I don’t actually know, but in this case, I definitely felt inclined […]
