Celebrating the Holidays with Albino Armani and the Weekly Menu featuring Leftovers

Suzanne of Vigneto Communications invited me to join her in a Webinar learning about Albino Armani Wines.  I was provided with 4 bottles of wine for tasting purposes.  No monetary compensation was given and all opinions and writings are strictly my own.

Wine Wednesday with #L'Ecole and a Lesson in Ageablility

I am very pleased to have been chosen to be an ambassador for L'Ecole wines.  Each month they generously send me two bottles of wine.  In return, I taste and pair the wines and then share my thoughts and opinions of the featured wine with my readers.  I receive no monetary compensation for my posts and all writings are 100% my own.

2 vintages of wine

This month we met up with the winemaker, Marty Clubb, and opened up two vintages of a Bordeaux Blend that they call Perigee.

Creamy Pumpkin Soup with Tortellini and Chicken #SoupSaturdaySwappers

Tender chunks of chicken and cheese filled tortellini in a thick, creamy, delicious tomato and pumpkin broth.  This is more of a SToup.  Serve it up with some cornbread and a crisp white wine and dinner is complete.

Gingerbread Cake #CakeSliceBakers

Seasonal and delicious this Gingerbread Cake was the perfect ending to a Friendsgiving Dinner.  Just the right amount of spice and more savory than sweet.  A dollop of whipped cream is all you need to dress this cake up for a stunning holiday dessert.
