Peachy Keen- The White Peach

peach1 pēCH/ noun 1. a round stone fruit with juicy yellow flesh and downy pinkish-yellow skin. 2. the Chinese tree that bears the peach. Happy Summer, everyone! It's time for swimming, shorts, fun in the sun, and an assortment of delicious fruit. About three years ago, I was at the market buying fruit for smoothies when I came across white peaches. A lover of fruit, I could not believe I hadn't seen them before, and I may have.. but simply overlooked them. Fast forward to current day and I am a loyal fan. Here's a bit of information about white peaches. Prior to the 1980s, farmers typically threw white peach varieties into the trash. Before these fruits became a commodity, farmers believed

It's a Flora Affair

flo·ra ˈflôrə/ noun the plants of a particular region, habitat, or geological period. "the desert flora give way to oak woodlands" a treatise on or list of the plant life of a particular region or period. plural noun: florae; plural noun: floras Hello, I'm Marci, and I'm a floraholic.. Yes, you read that right. Be it as I stroll along in the early morning or evening, or while standing in an outdoor line any given place for any given thing, my adoration of flowers is huge:). When you love flowers that much, of course you're going to have them throughout your living space. The loft is always decorated with flowers, and I used to become upset when the beauties would die... but then the marvelou

Homemade Jerky, pt. 2

Yesterday I went over the details to making homemade jerky, prepping the batch for cooking. The recipe calls for placing the strips directly on the oven racks, using suggested jerky screens from Hi Mountain, but each time I've made it I simply cook it on a nonstick pan. It's best to cook the jerky at the lowest oven setting. As far as time goes, wise information from my father is to cook the jerky for as long as your personal taste preference wants it to be cooked, and since it's at the lowest setting, that could be quite some time. This morning I put the jerky in the oven at 9:30 a.m and took it out just a few moments ago, 1:30 pm.... ..... and I've got to tell you, it's absolutely amazing

So Fresh: Spa Cubes

You're as cold as ice.. and that's a good thing. Earlier this week, I spoke about finding cherries at the Union Station Farmers Market, and of course there are numerous recipes that you can make with cherries. Here's a fun, no mess, low fuss way to make spa water with the naturally sweet treat. I love this particular ice tray, extra large, giving you more area for more fruit for the cubes. This ice tray by Tovolo is six cube, and extremely flexible. I did two cherry cubes, two spearmint cubes, and two/spearmint cherry cubes. Naturally you don't have to wait very long for everything to become frozen, I made up the cubes before bedtime and deposited them into my favorite pitcher first thing th

Homemade Jerky, Pt. 1

This afternoon, part one of the jerky process is being created here at 303 Home | Loft | Wellness. Started with laying out the the seasonings. (The seasoning and cure packet come with the jerky making kit, this particular kit is from Hi Mountain.) For this particular time, a 12 oz beef roast was used. The roast is cut into thin slices with the knife and cutting board that comes in the jerky making kit. You'll need to weigh the meat prior to seasoning, to ensure that you apply just enough seasoning to the amount of meat that you'll be curing. The meat is then sealed in a baggy and refrigerated for twenty four hours. Tomorrow part two of the process will be documented, and delicious jerky will

A Touch of Homemade.

This week, we'll be making dishes with cherries fresh from the Farmers Market, having fun making beef jerky, and creating our own art with lovely florals.

Epiphyte, You're my Type.

ep·i·phyte ˈepəˌfīt/ noun BOTANY a plant that grows on another plant but is not parasitic, such as the numerous ferns, bromeliads, air plants, and orchids growing on tree trunks in tropical rain forests. A love that is free of worry, excessive maintenance, and brings ongoing delight and beauty. I'm talking about my love affair with epiphytes, or air plants. For the last ten years, this has been my plant of choice. Painfully easy to maintain, this plant grows above ground, and thrives via rain, dust, or an occasional spritz in your loft or home space.. trust me, I know. I also occasionally soak the little darlings in a tepid sink bath. If you're going to water them this way, soak them from 15

#WellnessWednesday: Farmers Market Season

I cannot even express how stoked I was about learning that Union Station was going to have a Farmers Market this summer. Don't judge, we all have our 'happy place!' :) Anywho, I wanted to get there before festivities officially kicked off to get photos and video footage, as well as check out the goods! I wanted to purchase everything I saw, but fortunately was able to stay in control, making it out of there with spearmint, peonies, jam, and my life:) I look forward to attending each Saturday that it is around. Below you'll see a bit of what was there as I took in the market. M Lundy is the Founder and CEO of 303 Face | Body, and lover of all things Farmers Market.

A Puzzling Piece: Art

What a thrill to find this piece over the weekend. This is a ceramic sculpture from Siegel Keith Artistry, out of Wichita, Kansas. On June 4th and 5th, the 45th Capitol Hill People's Fair was at Civic Center Park in Downtown Denver. Loaded with vendors, giant turkey legs, and funnel cakes, this is the place to celebrate outdoors and enjoy amazing art, be it wearable or otherwise. The interesting piece that I purchased was from an artist whose work can be found in high end hotels around the country, and when he saw my interest in his puzzle piece, he went on to show me larger pieces that he's customized for someones home that were torsos, completely created with the semblance of a crossword p

Strawberry. Melon. Flora. The Salad.

fruit sal·ad noun a mixture of different types of chopped fruit served in syrup or juice. I was so excited to attend the Farmers Market this weekend at Union Station.. and even happier to find chives. My mind instantly went toward a recipe idea that I could not wait to try. Viola! The Strawberry Melon Flora Salad. For this delightful blend, I used only the flower of the chive which has a spicy, earthy taste to it that is unlike the fruit in this salad, but that is what added the appeal. I was also able to find spearmint at the farmers market, and that is one of the ingredients. A handful in the salad is perfect. Strawberries are added to the mix, eight to be exact. Watermelon, another refres

Cucumis sativus 'Lemon Cucumbers'

Just Cuke It. Fun little cucumbers without the extra. Lemon Cucumbers are a little more mild than actual cucumbers, and half the size, making a fun lunch or dinner treat without any leftovers. Making its debut it the late 1800's, these mini's have a thin, tender skin that some may find easier to digest. When picking out the perfect cuke, the proper size would be slightly smaller than the size of an orange. Anything larger will be quite seedy. If you're interest has now been piqued about lemon cucumbers, you can generally find them at your local farmers market, or they are also commonly found in indian markets. Wondering how you can grow your own? Well, a cool climate is best. Below you'll fi
