  • One Girl, One Glass in the Kitchen: Spicy Red Wine BBQ Sauce

    During IFBC, I participated in a food swap.  It was an interesting experience, and provided a learning opportunity for all involved.  I will say this…food swaps are nothing like the bottle swaps that I’m used to. For the food swap, I wasn’t sure what to bring…until it hit me.  My Spicy Red Wine BBQ Sauce. […]

  • Taking Cues from Wine Writers: A Perspective From One Who Was At #IFBC15

    In her keynote at IFBC, Kim Severson advised: How do you translate taste into words? @kimseverson says I never say yummy. It's challenging.

  • Turning Male Bovine Excrement into Filet Mignon: In Defense of IFBC 14

    There’s a post out there that is critical of IFBC after the author attended a whole whopping two sessions, then walked away. The first two, to be exact, based on what this person wrote. The two kick off sessions and you discount the conference. Yeah…um, let me insert the popular photo of McKayla Maroney here. […]

  • Woodinville Wine Country: A Taste of Washington in one city

    This week, IFBC participants will be descending upon this beautiful state and the Seattle area. While the schedule is jam-packed, I’m planning on taking some time to meander out to Woodinville and hit a few of my favorite wineries. Who are my favorite wineries in Woodinville, you ask?

  • One Girl, One Glass in the kitchen…Oven Roasted Salmon & Renegade Wine Rosé

    The last Thursday (usually) of every month, Sean Sullivan from Washington Wine Report hosts a virtual tasting via Twitter. This month, the wine chosen was Renegade Wine Company’s 2013 Columbia Valley Rosé. Now, we’ve been having some wild weather here at the world headquarters. A freak snowstorm that left me with a foot of snow […]
