Recipes for more healthful, yet full-of-flavor, fat-free and low-fat snacks and desserts
If You're like my two teens and me, you're hooked on Munchies.
OK, we both know... not the best idea. So a few years ago, I set out on a quest to do something about the way we ate. And to become more health conscious.
Simply put, I had to "prune the fat." No way around it. Thing is, we were reluctant to give up our favorite yummy desserts and snacks. Yes, I've been told there's such a thing as "will power." But... the kids wanted a goody. I wanted a goody. I was desperate!
Tips for selecting the right wine glasses for different types of wine
Our Family Gathers At Least Twice A Year For A Big Sit-down Dinner Together
Last Thanksgiving, it was my wife's and my turn to feed the clan, which added to 39 hungry individuals. By subtracting the kids and the beer drinkers, my task was to gather enough wine glasses for about 29 adults. After pulling our glass serving collection out of the cupboard, I counted 11-white wine, 7-red wine, 5-brandy snifter, 3-champagne and 2-pilsner beer glasses for a total of 28 glasses. The last person lucked out and received a small water glass to enjoy the wine. It is common for many of us in this situation to bring out a hybrid collection of glassware when we entertain large numbers.
Famous cocktails for ladies
OK Ladies; Let's get down to drinking business! Nights at bars and nighclubs always tend to have something to do with beautiful cocktails.
Those colourful, sweet, fruity and often creamy beverages that we sip on for hours really do make a great night out. We sip and sip and it isn't until we stand to head to the dance floor that we realize just how much alcohol was in our glasses.
Cocktails have certainly developed over time. Traditionally, these nice blends were a real treat to cover up the bad tastes of badly made beverages throughout the bars and clubs of the 1920's.
Here are some ideas on successful wine and fish pairing
You work for days on end until the time arrives when you get a day off from work. It only took seconds to kiss my wife, grab my gear, hook-up the boat and hang the "Gone Fishing" sign on my office door. My wife yelled at me as I was going out the door: "Don't catch anything if you don't want to clean it".
Ten relaxing hours later, I appeared at the kitchen door with a stringer of bass, crappie and catfish. Before my wife could corner me, I started immediately to clean the fish at the kitchen sink.
Wine Corks - Interesting Facts to Know
I was browsing through my local paper the other day and came across an article by Jon Rogers. Jon, of Wines Without the Mystery, is a wine educator and consultant who teaches a wide variety of classes. The article was entitled: You have no need to fear 'the cork ritual'. The article presents some great advice on the presentation and evaluation of the cork in a restaurant.
While his article was extremely informative, the questions that popped into my head were much more basic. For example, when did cork become the favorite way to plug a wine bottle? Where does the cork come from that wineries use everyday? I figured it was time to get back to my research to find some answers.
