I cook with wine…sometimes I even add it to the food. ~W.C. Fields This French Chardonnay-Sauvignon blend was a delicious pairing for my Mushroom & Corn Risotto (and a bargain–Cheap Wine Curious, I know you’d be so proud!).

Now that you have The Jackson Five playing background music in your head, I have a confession. You know those silly/annoying emails that circulate every couple of years in which you answer questions about yourself?

I’m not sure about you, but my picture taking tendencies definitely ebb and flow. There are some trips where I have hundreds and hundreds of pictures and others where nary a roll of film was used (and yes, I realized I just aged myself!). Unfortunately, this trip to California was during a lull in photo … Continue reading A Winey Day!
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since my trip to Napa Valley, CA! It definitely serves as a reminder that I need to go back and soon! Continue reading Napa Valley, Circa 2004
