About Denverista

Growing up, my grandmother taught me the value of a dollar. However, somewhere along the way I forgot about or choose to ignore it. I am a SAHM of two of the cutest brats and a wife to the most handsome guy in the world. I am remembering and learning how to stretch my dollars more than my grandmother taught me. I guess it is different when it is your money, lol. I love knowing that I am able to provide many wonderful items for my family, without exceeding our budget. Also, knowing how much money I am actually saving while still living a wonderful and adventurous life in beautiful Colorado. I look forward to helping you Stretch Your $'s Mile High! Best Regards & Warmest Wishes! Misty

This Savory Chiptole Sauce is nothing short of amazing!  Every great sauce has some liquor in it and this one is no exception. This one is made with Pura Vida Gold Tequila.  The recipe has an intense smokey and piquant flavor that is sure to create one of the best meals that you have ever had.  Seriously it is so good, I recommend to make a double batch and so that you always have some on hand.

Thanks for clicking on my recipe for a Vanilla Rita:  Drink Up the Pura Vida Tequila.  I hope you try it out and love it as much as I do.  It is seriously one of the most delicious drinks that I have ever tasted and that isn’t just because I made it.

The kind folks over at Pura Vida Tequila sent me a huge case of their products to review and try out.  Let me tell you that I highly impressed with their generosity and the product quality.  But what else can expect from a man that loves what he does and wants the entire world to try it.  And why shouldn’t they?  It’s amazing!  You can read the history of the man and his quest of the ultimate tequila quest here, PuraVidaTequila.   (more…)

Last week after running some errands,  I happened to need a few things from Walmart.  Yes, I went to Walmart on a Saturday in the middle of the afternoon.  Surprisingly, it wasn’t that busy.  While enjoying some child-free shopping and wondering every square inch of the store.  I found myself in front of a vendor display with samples to taste.  The lady in charge of the display said that they were Gluten Free burritos by Udi’s.   (more…)
