Are you blushing?
Want something refreshing and tasty? Think pink. Vintners and liquor retailers say rosé and blush wines have stormed back in popularity after getting (unfairly) a bad name after the white Zinfandel fad came to an end. “People are always looking for the next new thing in the wine world,” Utica vintner Gregg Kane said, pouring a little pink at Illinois River Winery in Utica, “and people realized, ‘Wow, rosé is really good and it’s cheap.’”NewsTribune photo/Scott Anderson

A sales clerk approached Patti Hall with a puzzled look. A customer had asked for a wine called “Mateus” and stumped her. Had Hall ever heard of it? Hall did a double take. Sure, the owner of Rudy’s Liquors in La Salle well remembered the once-popular Portuguese rosé wine; but Rudy’s hadn’t carried it in years. Ever since white Zinfandel fell sharply out of favor, customers didn’t ask for domestic pink wines, much less for an import that hadn’t been in vogue since Reagan was president.

Party like you mean it
Sure, you’ll have some guacamole and some chips and some chicken wings. And a plate of nachos isn’t a bad idea, either. But how about something to set your Super Bowl spread apart? How about some homemade beef jerky? Because while it may sound daunting to season and dry your own meat, it actually is a simple process that requires little hands on time. It also can be done well ahead — as in several weeks — and the results are pretty spectacular. And let’s not forget how wonderfully a well-seasoned hunk of jerky goes with all that beer you’ll be drinking.

Food is a history lesson
Bureau County Reporter Kim Shute is embarking on a new journey with food. The first Monday of each month, she will impart her wisdom about food preparation beginning with a cookbook, "American Plate," that outlines the food we eat and where it came from. In this edition, she prepares a George Washington favorite, hoe cakes.

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.

Hashing it out

Cookbook author Stacey Little said he never set out to write a cookbook. But along the way he learned a lot about himself and his life. “Food and family are two of the most important things in my life,” he said. When I write about my family and the food that has defined us for generations, I can write volumes.” Little’s cookbook, “The Southern Bite Cookbook,” is a compilation of recipes of his own device as well as family secrets and friend’s recipes. Every recipe is introduced with the story of its origin or how it is used.
