Summer is winding down and the first day of school is not-so-slowly creeping up...let the whirlwind begin! The upcoming autumn season means one thing around wine country: harvest is right around the corner! Soon our little corner of the world will be a buzz of activity but in the mean time, before...

With the 2009 Build a Better Burger contest officially closed for entries, we thought now might be a good time to check in with everyone and see how they are feeling about their entries! We think it's safe to say that, just at first glance through the large stacks of recipes, we know our judges are...

Hey burger fans, a friendly reminder that this year's BBB will be closing on Wednesday, July 29 at 12:00PM (that's NOON--not midnight ;-) ) That means that this weekend is the last weekend where you can prep and test.

Not that the holidays aren't enjoyable, it's just that I had seen holiday decor hit stores in early October. Good grief, I hadn't even bought my Thanksgiving turkey yet...

Happy Thanksgiving Eve everyone! I'm sure everyone is ready to break out their elastic-waisted pants, but before you get too comfortable at the table, we gotta make sure everyone is set with their wine selections for turkey day. I wouldn't be doing my due diligence if I didn't take a moment to...

Thanksgiving is almost here, which means that in addition to planning a meal, you're probably planning decor and polishing the good silverware and china. Odds are good that you're starting to feel the holiday crunch. Not that you need a reminder, but turkey day is in T-minus 10 days. We put on our...

The holidays are almost upon us (my local shopping plaza already has Christmas lights up-yikes!) and while many of us are playing phone tag with various aunts, uncles and cousins to plan where we're spending Thanksgiving ("no, I'll bring the mashed potatoes, you bring the yams..."), we back at the...
