Barrel Sample Wines by Coomber Family Ranch Winery

 Barrel Sample Wines & the Coomber Family Wines

Last night I had a small casual dinner party and can honestly say it was probably the easiest gathering I have ever had! I took the night off from cooking (gasp!) and ordered beautiful appetizers and entrees from renown Supannee House of Thai in San Diego. All I had to do was plate up the fresh farm-to-table Thai food on pretty platters. I then served two lovely Barrel Sample wines by the Central Coast based Coomber Family Ranch Winery.

Grilled Lotus Root, Zucchini & Chinese Eggplant with TECHEF

Lotus Root Stir Fry

I love meandering through my local Korean grocery store. Not only do they have a ton of fresh locally grown produce, but they also offer unique vegetables that are normally not found in a big retail chain grocery store. On my most recent visit, I stumbled upon some Lotus Root. As I've never met a veggie I didn't like, I decided this fun looking plant was going in my dinner.

Making Fresh Chocolate Mousse

Making Fresh Chocolate Mousse

I recently received the EurKitchen Whipped Cream dispenser to review and play with and now I'm addicted to this cool culinary tool! This whipped cream dispenser converts fresh whipping cream into beautiful pressurized cool whip, or in my case creamy chocolate mousse.

Shrooms & Snaps Stir-fry with TECHEF

Shrooms & Snaps Stirfry with TECHEF

Boiling pasta is pretty easy, right? But sometimes I just have to resort to shortcuts to get dinner out quickly. I love the yaki soba noodles that are precookied and prepacked from health food or Asian stores. All I need to do is quickly stir- fry up some fresh veggies, add some seasoning and toss in my noodles with a bit of liquid.

Lucky Olympian Black Eyed Peas with TeChef

Lucky Olympian Black Eyed Peas with TeChef

In my ongoing series of foods to make during the Olympics, I have decided to make 'Lucky Black Eyed Peas'. Black eyed peas with greens are traditionally made in the South to bring luck into the New Year. The theory is 'eat poor' on New Year's Eve (peas), and then one will be rich into the New Year.  Many Olympians who have trained their whole lives for this event, do come from humble beginnings.So in the spirit of the black eyed pea luck tradition, I hope all Olympians will reap the rewards of their tremendous efforts and experience great success after the event - they most certainly deserve it!
