Wine of all kinds pairs well with shopping and a girls’ night out. The businesses in the Princeton Art District have been giving women, and men, the opportunity to get out of the house for 13 years when they host their annual wine walk. Held in the art district last month, the walk allows people to visit businesses up and down Main Street and sample wine provided by Beetz Me, a store in the district.

Social media helps wine sellers give better service
Earlier this year, the number of wineries in the United States passed 8,000. When the news hit, Napa Valley tech entrepreneur Paul Mabray took to Facebook to remind his followers that “in a world of infinite wine choices, the only differentiator is service.” This quote has long been Mabray’s mantra. And it’s the guiding philosophy behind VinTank, the company he launched in 2009.

Sweet and sweeter
After pumpkin, sweet potatoes are one of my favorite fall vegetables. I know they’re available all year long and technically they’re not vegetables but a starch; they’re a side dish that makes you feel warm and fuzzy. I’ve made several different kinds of sweet potato casserole; each has its own merits. But so far, I haven’t made anything by author Stacey Little that I haven’t liked.

5 comfort food meals

It’s something about the warmth and flavor of comfort food that makes people smile. It’s that moment when the creamy, smooth, decadent food hits your taste buds and you just know you will be full for awhile. There aren’t many things better than a warm meal coming straight from a slow cooker, except maybe the wonderful aroma that fills your house without you having to do much work at all. That’s one of the best things about the fall; it’s a season full of delicious, hearty and satisfying slow cooker meals ready to please.

Building food
Brian Nowakowski still is a little sorry he didn’t weigh his mom’s suggestion more carefully. As the youngest of three children growing up in La Salle, Nowakowski spent a lot of time with his mother in the kitchen and picked up a few culinary tricks along the way. And unlike his siblings, young Brian was interested in learning family recipes such as potica, a rolled nut pastry.

Pumpkin a perfect palate
One of the first things I think about when it’s fall is all of the wonderful aromas coming out of the kitchen. My favorite is pumpkin. I know many people are enamored by the apple, and I like it, too, but it’s pumpkin all the way for me.
So when I found this recipe in Stacey Little’s “The Southern Bite Cookbook,” I knew I just had to try it.
