I found the unicorn of wine websites…and now it’s gone, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

Earlier this year, I stumbled across the most brilliant website for pairing wines with meals. It allowed you to input your meal ingredients, spice preferences, and usual wine preferences, and then suggested three to five bottles of wine for your meal. It did not just suggest varieties, but actual brands, labels, and vintages. It alsoContinue reading “I found the unicorn of wine websites…and now it’s gone, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend”

A December reset, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

Anybody else feel like they need to push the reset button at the start of December?

Five things on Pinterest for #joshandkatebuildahouse, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

I skipped a Friday post last week for the first time since launching ink. and I felt badly about it.

Low country boil, Friday kudos, wine for your weekend

Recipe alert! A few weeks back, we made semi-spontaneous dinner plans with a couple of friends.

Moon cheese, Friday kudos, and wine for your weekend

One of the best parts about shopping at Costco…beyond being able to set yourself up in a year’s worth of spaghetti sauce in one trip, and their excellent Kirkland brand potato chips, and the most delicious coconut rolled, chocolate dipped almonds…is that they have a myriad of free samples to snack on during the day.Continue reading “Moon cheese, Friday kudos, and wine for your weekend”
