I have always loved St. Patrick’s Day- partly because of my Irish heritage (though I know the way Americans celebrate the holiday is a little different than Irish) and partly because it was the day I was supposed to be born. As my mom likes to remind me, I was too stubborn and waited three […]

In honor of International Women’s Day, I wanted to celebrate a few of the women that have been inspirational in my life. These women have influenced me at different times in my life and have inspired me to live fully, be creative, give back, and to keep pursuing all of my crazy dreams. Lucille Ball When […]

A year ago this day, Jonathan and I flew back from a week-long trip to Paris. It was our third time being there together, and like every time before, we spent the week eating cheese, drinking wine, and roaming the romantic streets of Paris. We didn’t just eat a lot of cheese, we ate A […]

It seems like every other day is National Something or Other Day, but National Sticky Bun Day is one I will happily celebrate! For yesterday’s holiday, I baked these sticky buns and my husband and I have had no trouble cleaning the pan. We ate them fresh out of the oven as dessert to celebrate […]

We got about 8 inches of snow here in Chicago between Thursday night and early this morning. For two days, I holed up at home in the front of the fireplace enjoying wine, the company of my husband and favorite furry friends (my bunnies, Lola and Ginsburg), and the Olympics (go US curling team!). We […]

My favorite food is cheese and my favorite drink is wine (dry reds to be exact) so I often have dinners that compose of wine and cheese (and maybe bread). I have had my share of wine and cheese nights and have learned a little thing or two about choosing wines to pair with cheese […]

  I love a good tea party (especially when the tea cups are filled with cocktails!). One of my favorite parties of the past year was an Alice in Wonderland themed tea party. I typically start planning a party by coming up with a particular theme or mood. I chose the classic children’s story for […]

As the only fish-eater in my house (my husband is a vegetarian and I am a pescatarian), I rarely cook fish at home and usually only eat it at restaurants. Lately, I have been craving fish so I decided to make salmon with a buerre blanc sauce for Sunday Night Wine Club this week. The […]
