Here’s the perfect way to kick off summer: Get yourself invited to Debbie & Stu the Wine Genius Williams’ home for dinner.

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 7, 2010 at 2:25pm

The big day finally arrived!  We actually got to eat the damn cassoulet, a dish I’ve become very familiar with over the last several days that it’s taken me to prepare it.  Let me say right off the bat – it was well worth the effort.  And for more reasons than the obvious deliciousness –…

Yesterday I caught an early version of Eric Asimov’s The Pour column on the New York Times Dining & Wine page.  The headline – A New Course for Dessert Wine – jumped right out at me.  I prefer dessert-style wines paired with savory foods (foie gras, blue cheese), so I clicked through and was delighted…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 30, 2009 at 8:02am

Good-bye summer! It was a chilly 45 degrees at 3 o’clock this morning, autumn is definitely in the air. If you’re wondering why I know the temp at 3 a.m., it’s not because I was out partying. It’s because we got…a new puppy! Puppy Louis, a mini goldendoodle (will be 45 lbs. full grown), and…

I lucked into a delicious dinner at Debbie & Stu the Wine Genius’ on Sunday night.  After a dry, dusty afternoon spent watching Little League baseball, it was oh-so-nice to sit in their lovely, shady backyard and sip a cool glass of white wine, ahhh.  Bill & Karla Forsythe were there as well, with their…
