Picnic Perfectly

Written By: Kelly DeLaMora

The approach of summer season brings plenty of opportunities to take advantage of the warm (not totally unbearably […]

Sizzlin’ for Summertime

Written By: Kelly DeLaMora

I’ve been on a real shrimp kick lately. Maybe it’s because I’ve been called “shrimp” my whole life due to my less-than-five-foot-one vertical stance? And it’s ingrained in my being to thus appreciate shrimp as a cuisine? Maybe it’s because I didn’t care for shrimp growing up, and am trying to make up for lost time […]

Springtime: Bunnies and Bubbles

Written By: Kelly DeLaMora

Well, I believe it is appropriate to say that spring has officially sprung!

Following Our Remodel: Entry Four

Written By: Kelly DeLaMora

As we trek onward with our winery’s renovation, we steadily see (yet mostly hear…and by hear I mean bear auditory witness to loud pounding) changes daily to our once-was tasting room.       As you can see above, the inside of our entryway has seen better days…       Speaking of seeing better days, […]

Stickin’ It

Written By: Kelly DeLaMora

There are few things I love more in life than food. And sometimes when I take time out of my day to sit down and really think about the power of food, I fall a little more deeply in love with it. Food possesses a multitude of powers: it can bring people together in a social way, it can spark […]

Snack…Tackle…Pop!

Written By: Kelly DeLaMora

The Big Game is almost here.  You’ve fluffed your couch cushions, triple-checked your cable connection and made sure the fridge is stock-piled with snack essentials.
