“I’m not a wine connoisseur, but I do like a glass or two at night. – Diane Keaton

A glass of wine, good conversation, and good people | D.L. Rhein

Once a month, the women in my neighborhood gather at someone’s home for Wine Night.  It has been going on for years, and grows in numbers each time.  Everyone shows up with a bottle and a glass and the host provides snacks and hors d’oeuvres.  The ages range from newlyweds to parents and grandparents, the best part being a night away from our hectic daily lives.  Chatting with old friends and neighbors and making new ones, what could be better?!

After lots of traveling for tradeshows this summer and kids in camp,  I couldn’t wait to get back in my kitchen to whip up some new yummy, healthy dishes.  With our marvelous weather, it was very appealing to plan a laid back night where guests could wander in and out of the house and really kick back and relax. read more

Dig-Green!

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
~Irish Blessing

You don’t have to be Irish to appreciate green.  Earthy and botanical, it adds a punch of color that isn’t overwhelming.   One of our favorite design mavens Kelly Wearstler has taken green to a new level in her wallpaper and fabric designs. Emerald, Kelly, Moss, Seafoam, the choices are endless.  What’s your favorite shade of green?
