Written by a group of friends all living in the Boston area. We aren’t ladies who lunch, we’ve got jobs & kids and budgets, but we know a good wine when we taste it. We also love to cook, and occasionally even visit a fancy restaurant or two. Here, then, is a record of our favorite (and sometimes disastrous) recipes, as well as the wines that make it all better in the end. Enjoy!
The authors are three women:
I’m a thirty-something mother of a 3-year-old girl (Double-shot) and 14-month-old boy (Lil’ Nip) and I like to, um, imbibe. I’m partial to big reds – shiraz, zinfindel, cabernet – but I’ll drink just about anything with an alcohol percentage in a pinch. Lucky for me, I’m married to Sober Dad, who is a creative cook and passionate papa, as well as a pretty darn reliable designated driver. When I’m not parenting, cooking or drinking, I can be found working on my novel, a task which usually involves downloading new songs from i-tunes and checking to see if any of my friends have updates on facebook.
I’m a thirty something Southern transplant living in the Boston Area.
I’m mom a 4 year old daughter (Mudslinger) and 1 1/2 year old son
(Mudpuppy). Needless to say, we spend our days making a mess. At the
end of the day, after my husband (Mudhoney) and I have finished cleaning up the
day’s clutter, I enjoy relaxing with a glass of wine. I find
full-bodied, warm reds comforting during the long, New England winter.
When warmer weather finally emerges, I can appreciate a bright, crisp
white, especially as an accompaniment to oysters on the half shell (I
just drooled a little bit).
I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, growing my own food, and I’m
trying to get back into my ceramics studio after a long hiatus. I also
love live music. I can think of nothing better than losing myself in a
good live show. Oh, and then there’s chocolate….
I am a single thirty-something Southern lady living in the Boston area. I have a not-so-subtle Southern accent made worse when imbibing, and imbibe I do, with the passion of a hobby outside the hours of my full time job. My favorite wines — red, earthy, juicy, and creamy with a fine finish — lead me to daydream about ways to turn my ancestral Southern land into a vineyard. Mostly indiscriminate in my choice of wines, I shy away only from dessert wines. It seems my non-existent sweet tooth has been reassigned to cheesy, salty, and savory with wine for the remaining 25. The one thing that will make me put down the wine bottle is a live band. It is hard to rock out with a wine glass in your hand. I love to read so send me your book list, please. Lastly, I enjoy being a daughter, sister, friend, and a crazy aunt to about 9 nieces and nephews that are not really blood related, but please don’t tell them. Cheers!
