I was delivering an order of family farm raised meats to one of our customers recently, and while the entire house was gorgeous, what stood out was this beautiful wine cellar. 
Complete with full length glass doors and plenty of detailed craftsmanship, the room really caught my attention.
Speaking of wine, have you ever tried pairing wine with steaks or other meat dishes? 
Even if wine isn't something you drink regularly, a little magic occurs when great meat and good wine is paired correctly.  Pairing wine with food can make both taste even better.  A little wine can add a new dimension to beef, pork and chicken.  It can even spice up a routine weeknight dinner.
Here are a four basic tips that can get you started pairing a good wine with your favorite dinner dishes. 
1. Leverage your local wine retailer.  Ask questions about the wines they sell.  They will be happy to share what they know and provide choices for the menu you are planning.
2. You can get great wines for a reasonable price.  I have had expensive wines that I did not enjoy as much as some less expensive choices.
3. Remember, when it comes to wine, you get to decide what you like and what you don't.  It's that simple.  
4. Experiment and have fun.
Here is a nice article by Allie Albanese and Melissa Diaz that provides a some great wine pairing insights that go a little deeper. 

We would love you to share some of your favorite pairings. 
Have a great week,

Free-Range Chicken...The American Consumer is the Real Victim

-Click to Read More-


The American consumer has more information than ever before regarding their food supply.  Yet, they have never been more confused about what they are buying and eating.  
Marketers, producers and advocates use terms that sound nice, but actually may be misleading.  
"Free-Range" Chicken is one example.
According to the USDA, "Free-Range" means "Producers must demonstrate to the Agency that the poultry has been allowed access to the outside".  
That's it.  That leaves quite a bit to interpretation.  
Key Ideas:
  • Free-range is more about marketing than anything else.  It is not a guarantee of anything specific.
  • Industrial farming and commercial feed-lots qualify as free-range, since the animals are technically outside.
  • If this term is important to you, make sure you know exactly what your supplier means by "free-range". 
What food terminology have you been confused by?  

5 Steps to Easy Weeknight Dinners

-Click to Read More-



It's Tuesday night, you just got home and you are exhausted.  The kids are hungry and so are you.  
Tired and hungry usually means a pizza or fast food.  You eat out of a box or a bag and begin the familiar process of telling yourself  "we really need to eat better".
Does this, or something like this, sound familiar?  You are not alone.  Rather than keep repeating the same pattern, we've got a few tips to help you feed your family the way you would like to.

1.  Get Ready
Start the weekend with your grocery shopping done.  Pick any weeknight to knock out the grocery list.  The trip is always easier and quicker during the week.  
You'll start the weekend with all the foods you need ready to go.

2Defrost your meat.  3 minutes
On Friday or Saturday night before going to bed grab enough meat from your freezer for several weeknight meals.  Just place the meat in the refrigerator and head to bed.  

3. Prepare the meat. 20 minutes
On Saturday or Sunday morning, gather the meats from the refrigerator and organize them.  
Place the meat you want to marinade in zip lock bags and place back in the refrigerator.
Decide which cuts you will be grilling or cooking in the oven and season them to your taste. 

4. Cook it up!  60 minutes
On Sunday (morning, afternoon or evening) grab all of the meats for the week and cook them all.  You may have the grill, oven and the stove top all going at once.  The key here is to simply get all of the meat cooked without overcooking any of the items.  Don't forget to clean as you go!
At the same time, you can:
  • Chop vegetables
  • Pre-make salads 
  • Cook brown or white rice

5. Pack it and Stack it.  7 minutes
Once all of the meat has cooled, you can trim, slice and store it in the refrigerator.  Also do this with any of the side dishes you prepared.  Zip lock bags and plastic storage containers are a big help.
Let's see, you have invested approximately 90 minutes and you now have dinners 90% ready for the entire week.  
Now when you get home exhausted on Tuesday night, you can quickly assemble your dinner in just a few minutes. 
When dinner is done, cleanup is a breeze too!  You can’t get any pizza that quickly!
