Wine Review – Walt Rose′

More Rose′ because… Summer! Summer really seems to have brought out a taste of Rose′ for us. It’s light and easy to drink and honestly has low commitment. It is pretty hard to mess this stuff up!

One of the wineries we are members of put on Instagram their Rose′ and I logged in and snagged a few bottles.

We are HUGE Walt fans in this house and this did not disappoint. A little strawberry here and a little citrus there with a bright finish. Super delish.

I have found some of Walt’s Pinot Noirs in large wine stores (Spec’s here locally) and at Central Market – but I am not sure how widely they distributed the Rose′. I will be a pretty happy camper if I see this on the shelf during my next excursion.

Cookies on Saturday

Along with being an avid wine drinker I am also an avid food lover. I am constantly looking up new recipes and putting cook books on my wish list.

My favorite food blog, Pinch of Yum, featured a cookie the other day that I haven’t been able to get off my mind. It also prompted me to order a new cookbook:

Cookie + Kate

Apparently I have been living under a rock and I had NO IDEA this blog existed. While I am not a vegetarian, I do enjoy meatless meals just the same. I read the cookie recipe on Lindsey’s site, ordered the book, and moved on.

Today the book arrived and I dove into during the Saturday “quiet time” (aka baby nap time and we all read/nap/chill for 2 hours). I want to make all the salads pastas but OH YEAH THE COOKIES.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie: Excuse me while I eat the batter… 

I am a lover of coconut sugar, and many of the ingredients throughout this book, already and I had all the ingredients on hand.

As they baked I dug through the website and smelled the peanut butter goodness wafting throughout the house.

Oh. My. Goodness. Gracious.

I am still nursing my broken heart and cookies are a surefire way to do that.

Even if it is swimsuit season….
