I’m squeezing out every opportunity to grill outside before it gets too cold. Yes, I know you can grill outside year round, but when it gets too cold and rainy, it takes longer to warm up the grill and longer to cook the food on the grill. And since I am a rare steak girl,…

The heat is on and it’s only the first of June. It’s the Pacific Northwest for crying out loud, everyone told me it rains all the time, it’s cold and cloudy, everyone is depressed because of the rain. Well right now I’m depressed because of the heat and no rain. We haven’t had any good…

I can’t believe it, I move to the Pacific Northwest where it is widely believed that it rains all the time and the temperatures stay in the mid-sixties and last summer we had a drought that lasted for months and temperatures in the eighties with a few nineties thrown in for good measure. Now spring…

In keeping with my New Year’s resolution (the only one I can keep) I opened another bottle of wine. I am so proud of myself, I finally found the perfect resolution, and one that I can make year after year and succeed. Drink more wine. So simple, I don’t know why I didn’t think of…

The holidays are a time of friends and family, shopping and presents, food and beverages, adult beverages to be more precise. To be even more precise, wine, and if you are lucky, many bottles of wine. I have been lucky, I have six new bottles of wine to taste, four that came in a wine…

Finally I’m in Wine Country living the dream. I’m home! The move to Seattle is almost complete. I’m here with Mitch and the dogs, we just don’t have any furniture yet. I brought the wine with me because I wanted to make sure all of my meager wine collection made the trek halfway across the…

My birthday was officially Sunday, but started the party on Friday with a lunch with friends. Saturday Mitch and I went to a very nice restaurant…

Finally, spring is almost here. Warmer weather, gardening and grilling, what more could I ask for? Good wine to go with good food, I guess. Yesterday, was one of those nice days, perfect for a strip steak on the grill and a nice bottle of wine to go along with the meal. I fired up…

Most everyone today is always on the lookout for a bargain, especially since the price of beef has gone through the roof. We’re all feeling the toll of the drought a couple of years ago, when a lot of ranchers had to sell their herds early. Considering the price of ground beef has gone from…

Today’s Wine Review In two weeks it will be Thanksgiving and the official kick off of the holiday season. I know that the stores have been running ads and specials since before Halloween, but to me Thanksgiving is the starting point. Running around in search of the perfect gift for family, friends and co-workers, promises…

Occasionally we switch it up with our best friends and we go over there for dinner and wine. G makes a mean steak, marinated in his secret sauce and always cooked to perfect, rare of course. He also made bruschetta with roasted tomatoes from his garden. Oh my god these were so good, I could…

Grilling season is here and I’m grilling with a vengeance. It’s easy and quick, no fuss no muss. We grill almost every night. From chicken breasts to steak, I even cook a lot of vegetables on the grill. I tried pizza a couple of times, very tasty. And the best part about grilling is that…
