a video from TEDxCLE worth watching – and sharing

I have a confession to make. My husband loves Kraft cheese slices and despite my better judgment, I sometimes concede and buy for him. You can’t win every battle (but I do bury the so-called cheese at the bottom of the cart, embarrassed by the purchase). Most days, we do our best to eat smart. […]

i heart wine dinners (as in abc wine at greenhouse)

“What kind of wine do you like to drink?” asked Jim Clendenen, named winemaker of the year in 1991 by Food & Wine and in 1992 by the Los Angeles Times for his Santa Barbara winery, Au Bon Climat. “Usually cabs – heavy, full-bodied, cabs,” I replied. “Oh. Then I’m afraid I’m not going to […]
