Game Day Grub: An Easy Recipe For Every Quarter of the Game

posted on January 29th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

The big game is almost upon us and with it means parties complete with BBQ, burgers, beer, and Buffalo chicken wings. Because a fantastic spread of indulgences can make winning that much better...and losing a little more tolerable (strong emphasis on a little). Whether you're hosting or you're contributing to a potluck party, you shouldn't have to stress over cooking - leave all that stress and nail-biting for the game! That's why we're helping you out with 4 easy, tried and true recipes for the big game. One recipe for each quarter...and beers for all at halftime! 1st Quarter: Our Own Homemade Guacamole - Yes, this one is a "cheat." But a really, really good cheat. Our delightfully chunky and flavorful guacamole is made fresh everyday in our kitchens using perfectly ripe avocados, cilantro, onion, and tomato. Serve it in a pretty bowl and pair with your favorite tortilla chips and your friends will never know you didn't make it! Or - get extra fancy and top it with some… Read More

Game Day Grub: The Ultimate Buffalo Rotisserie Chicken Dip

posted on January 28th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

When it comes to hosting a game day party, the spread of snacks matters almost as much as the spread offense. Okay, that may be a stretch. Forgive us. But in all seriousness, the grub your guests delightfully munch on during those moments of calm is well, kind of important. Perhaps gorging on layers of loaded nachos or piles of crispy buffalo wings makes victory feel that much better. Then again, those same nachos and wings can be somewhat soothing when our team loses too. No matter how you look at it, the food you serve or bring to a game day gathering is gonna get eaten. So why not make it easy on yourself and whip up something super simple and totally foolproof? Like Buffalo chicken dip. We’ve all had it. And when it’s good, it’s really good. Our recipe is one of those really good ones too - the kind you think about for days and then try desperately to recreate. But we’re just going to take the guesswork out of the process for you and give you the best recipe for… Read More

Wine Thursday: 2016 Department 66 Vin de Pays des Cotes Catalanes “Fragile” Rose

posted on January 18th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

A guise of pale rhubarb saturates the glass in a provocative way. Tempting floral aromatics are evident with rose hips and crushed petals that frame a candied, summer berry core. Opening with tenacity, ripe, wild strawberries prevail along with mandarin orange, juicy watermelon, and a pleasing mid-palate of tangy, white peach. These flavors are buttressed with warm stone accents compliments of the volcanic soils the grapes hail from and a snap of mouthwatering acidity. Predominantly a blend of Grenache with a dollop of Syrah and Carignane Fragile Rosé is imported by the Orin Swift company and its founder, Dave Phinney, who is the mind behind The Prisoner. Inspired by the venerable wines of the southern Mediterranean, it is made utilizing traditional methods and using sixty to one-hundred-year-old vines. The domain offers very low yield s due in large part to a particular micro-climate, prevailing mountain winds from the Pyrenees mountain range and the famous black, schist… Read More

Carnitas Street Tacos

posted on January 18th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

We are without a doubt, living in the land where tacos rank supreme. With street-style taco shops and trucks at very corner, the competition is stiff - which most of the time, means amazing tacos that you just can't get anywhere else (besides Mexico, of course). But sometimes it's fun to plan an elaborate taco night at home. Side note: Remember when taco dinner box kits were a weekly "indulgence"? Oh, nostalgia. We'll leave those taco kits in the past though. Because crafting up cantina tacos at home really isn't that difficult. Short-cuts make it even easier too. Here's our simple recipe for carnitas tacos that is a sure bet, every time.   Carnitas Tacos Ingredients: 2 lb pork shoulder Juice from two limes 1 onion, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon salt 1/2 tablespoon chili powder 1 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 2 cups chicken stock, divided 1/2 cup cooking oil, divided   For building tacos: corn… Read More

Tasmanian Cherries: In Stores + Worth the Hype

posted on January 18th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Sweet, ripe cherries in January? You read correctly. And these aren’t just your average cherries either. These oh, so plump and juicy dark red beauties are flown in from our mates in Tasmania, Australia every winter. The amazing fruit is grown on the awe-inspiring orchards by the way of the Hansens, a 4th generation family farm who specialize in Tasmania cherries. If you haven’t had a chance to try these cherries yet, ask for sample the next time you’re in our stores. Be prepared to be blown away. They are quite addictive. They’re amazing on their own for snacking but we’re pretty fond of chopping them up and adding them to vanilla bean ice cream, Greek yogurt, a craft cocktail (cherry Moscow mule anyone?) or even burrata cheese with some crushed pistachios Read More

Meal Prep Like a Pro in 2018

posted on January 16th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

We get it; takeout and processed foods are just so much easier. Cooking a wholesome meal is sometimes the last thing we have time for. You’ve probably heard of meal prepping - it’s a health trend that got popular a few years ago and has stuck around - for good reason. Meal prepping makes eating healthy easy and quick, week after week. But there’s a misconception about the trend - you don’t have to eat the same thing everyday. You can absolutely mix-and-match your meals with just a few variations in sauces, toppings, and sides. That way it never gets boring and it's easier to stay on track. All is takes is some patience in the kitchen and just a couple of hours (3 hours, max if you're not much of a cook) and you've got a week's worth of healthy lunch and dinners that won't break the bank or upset your taste buds either. We suggest going through the meal prep on Sundays, when you're least likely to have work or social obligations. So go grab your favorite glass… Read More
