The sweet, pink wine that started it all A press release announcing the Sutter Home package revamp — retiring the 19th-century home image that’s adorned its label for years in favor of a modern, less-cluttered design — brought back pleasant memories of the house that white zinfandel built.
The ‘delight’ of family recipe swaps This is one of those stir-and-serve salads that’s really more of a dessert than a salad. After mixing together the first three ingredients, I tasted it and I could have stopped right there. It was wonderful.

Wine, dine and stay in style in the ‘middle of nowhere’ Closer to home is the inaugural wine event at Pursell Farms. Pursell Farms Vine & Dine runs on two concurrent nights, May 24 and 25. Each night includes an overnight stay and use of the facilities that spill out over 3,500 acres in the “middle of nowhere” — the owner’s description, not mine.
So berry delicious Strawberries — fresh-picked, vine-ripened strawberries — are showing up now at local farmers’ markets and pick-your-own strawberry farms.
My daughter and I recently went picking at C. Watts Farm in Munford, and in a half-hour we had picked two gallons of red, ripe berries. Not a flavorless one or a mushy one in the bunch.
Palate Pleasers for Mom A tapas-style meal made up of a variety of small, appetizer-like bites is something we tend to associate with evenings and cocktails. But we thought the same idea of small plates would lend itself perfectly to a Mother’s Day brunch. So we came up with a variety of tapas ideas suitable for Mom’s big day.
