Is the Left Coast the Best Coast?

I am an East Coast girl at heart. I went to the opposite coast once, and I was not into it. There was too much traffic, too many people on juice cleanses, and way too many people trying to become actors or models. I am much more comfortable on my coast where people are always rushing around, drinking coffee, and layering up once December hits. Continue reading

Back to School and Feelin’ Cool

A few of you may know this, but I am in the process of applying to law school. Nerve-wracking, stressful, and exciting are all words that come to mind as I reflect on going through the application process. The other thing that comes up is that it also costs money. Between the holidays, applying, and actually trying to save some finances to pay for it, my wine habit has taken a hit. I am fortunate enough to receive samples, but pricey bottles that I want to try stay out of my shopping cart now. Continue reading

Memorable Mondays: Fantasia

Half of what makes food such a powerful topic is that it is intrinsically tied to memory, and that brings up strong emotions in just about anyone. What prompted me to bring my Memorable Monday posts back to life wasn’t necessarily a food, but the Disney movie Fantasia.  Continue reading

Food with the City of Lights

So, the desire to consume everything from An American in Paris to French guide books when I was younger has grown into even more of a drive to get my hands on anything to do with the city. Recently, I finished The Only Street in Paris: Life on the Rue des Martyrs by Elaine Sciolino, who has lived the life of which I dream. Continue reading

#WineStudio: Feeling Aglow with Arínzano

When I lived in Spain, I hardly ever drank wine. I was in the land of hard cider. Other kids who couldn’t handle the tartness or didn’t like the idea of throwing back an inch of sidra in one gulp drank wine, but I am first and foremost an acidhead, and this delicacy was right up my alley. Sidra and pinchos, particularly salty olives, were what I liked any weeknight, and wine fell to the wayside. I was in the northwest of Spain, but had I known Arínzano wasn’t too far away in the northeast, I may have explored the world of wine a bit more. Continue reading

#WineStudio: Getting Through the Day with Some Rosé

While the dog days of summer are behind us, the last thing most drinkers are now thinking of is rosé. Rosé, frosé, and pretty much anything in a shade of millennial pink are all associated with the months between April and August. Why drink it any other time of year? Even though we had our #WineStudio session in June, I held off until September for this reason. Rosé is good for just about any day. I’m making my case here. Continue reading
