What’s for lunch after a morning of trying to remain upright in the Roaring Fork River while searching for trout? or after a strenuous bike ride or uphill hike in high altitude?
Aspen offers a wide range of healthy eats for those great lunches you are hankering for. I suggest you check out the following places. Each has lots of tasty choices for anyone who seeks mostly veg options.
Cool mountain breezes waft across snow capped mountains reaching towards implausibly blue skies. I have returned to one of my favorite vacation spots.

What does a July 4th celebration have to do with Kosher Like Me? Well, not a whole lot really.
Except….Jews are an integral part of the American fabric. There are probably more of us here in the U.S. than in any other country or continent.
So celebrate America’s independence?
For my family, the 4th is an official kickoff for summer complete with house guests, grilling, and a flag cake.
This year, I decided to move on from this unoriginal yet always delicious dessert and my mind turned to a pavlova, a marshmallow-y meringue filled with cream and fruit.

Marina is a beekeeper. She makes 15 types of single origin honey, beeswax candles, and honey based skin care products.
Father’s Day is upon us and we’re heating up the BBQ. Whatcha putting on the grill?
Where did your meat come from?

For young lovers and their parents, ‘tis the season of gift giving as summer weddings approach and engagements are announced.

The simple pleasure of eating a fresh egg is distinctly different from eating one from a store. The charmingly bumpy shapes, the pleasing range of hues from lavender to pale blue to snow white, all point to a more, well, organic experience. Continue reading
Sometimes there’s an unexpected confluence of circumstance that makes writing about holiday foods a real thrill. Maybe it’s the adventure of discovering a new product that I suddenly feel I must have in my ‘fridge at all times.
In my perennial search for traditional foods with a twist, it was a great coincidence when the CT. farmers Robin and Ron Simmons contacted me about trying their organic, local, low fat and kosher yogurt .
Simmons Family Farm Yogurt almost sounded too good to be true. I shared with family and friends and began tasting the product over a period of a couple of weeks, just in time to make the connection between dairy and Shavuot. Continue reading
