Learn more about wine without publicly admitting you know nothing about wine

April 23, 2017

I, like many of you, enjoy a nice glass of wine at the end of a long day. I prefer Cabernet Sauvignon, but can be happy with a Malbec or a Pinot Noir. I know I also prefer screw tops over corks, and that's as far as my wine knowledge takes me.

Occasionally I find myself wishing I knew more about wine, so I'll attend a tasting at my local liquor store. But once I'm there, it'll become even clearer to me that I know nothing about wine, so I'll..

How to Entertain: Cheese Edition

April 8, 2017

One of the easiest things to serve when entertaining a crowd is a nice platter of assorted cheese and crackers. It's delicious, arguably healthier than a tray of cupcakes, and takes only as much time as a quick run to the grocery store. I live less than five miles away from four different grocery stores, but Trader Joe's is my go-to when I'm planning to entertain. Trader Joe's has a nice selection of cheeses, but is small enough that I, as a..
