Chateau Haut-Pougnon with Mediterranean Stew #Winophiles

This Bordeaux from Entre-deux-Mers is reasonably priced and delicious, making it the perfect wine for a casual weeknight dinner of Mediterranean Stew.  The stew, chock full of vegetables and flavor, is slow cooked requiring only minutes of hands on time.  Perfect meal to come home too after work or a day of running errands.


Join the French Winophiles as we start the New Year off discussing What's New in Bordeaux.......

Honey Bear Loaf #BreadBakers

This adorable little honey bear is a great addition to the family dinner table when there are going to be young guests.  I made one large bear but you can make several small bears so that each person at the table has his/her own little dinner roll bear.

I served mine as part of the Christmas Dinner Buffet.  Unfortunately I forgot to snap a photo of it plated up prettily.  Holidays are hectic.......
