Holiday Cooking and Wine Pairing Gift Guide

During the holidays, there is no greater joy for our family than enjoying a hearty home-cooked meal around the dinner table.

For gifting ideas, I love to give cookware, great wine, and recipe cards of some dishes my husband and I created during the year.

To help celebrate the upcoming Christmas and Chanukah season, I have below some notable wine labels, my most favorite essential cookware piece, as well as some fun wine accessories I know your family and friends will love.  View Post
