  • Whether entertaining friends at home or just making a meal for two or three, it’s always important to know which wine to serve with which food. Even if you prefer red wine or maybe a dry white wine, sometimes it’s best to choose a wine with the same characteristics as your entrée.

  • A couple of weeks ago I shared some holiday survival tips for those of you trying to lose weight-— or at least not gain weight — during the holiday season. I’ve seen statistics showing people can gain up to 10 pounds between Halloween and the Super Bowl each year. This is the big eating season! Not everyone will gain that much. Even if you only gain a pound or two, the problem is most folks don’t lose that weight once the party season is over — and this can go on year after year.

  • Our warm and dry autumn came to an abrupt end this week as Old Man Winter made his presence known. The good news is the prognosticators promise a warmer and drier winter. Of course you know how easy it is to predict the weather. 

    Whatever the weather, this is a great time of year to pause and reflect on what has happened during the growing season.
