Why do I hate Sandra Lee so much?

Truth be told, I do not really hate Sandra Lee. She has never done me, or anyone I love, harm. For all I know she may be a perfectly wonderful person, someone who spends her every off camera waking hour working to make the world a better place. I do, however, despise everything about her public persona and what it represents. Her culinary perspective is reprehensible and a total affront to my own. Her tablescapes […]

Ann Landers, Miss Manners, and some winos in Houston

That’s right! The winos of Another Wine Blog are now world famous, highly respected purveyors of sage advice. You all can say that you knew us when. The fine (and possibly drunk) folks at AskDeb.com have compiled a list of 100 Great Advice Blogs and have mistakenly wisely included our seriously stupid highly esteemed site. We are ridiculously drunk quite honored and humbled. Maybe we should start a feature called “Ask a Wino” where I […]

Saving a bottle for just the right occasion

Wednesday was our fourth wedding anniversary, and to celebrate we went to California and drank a a lot of wine last weekend. However, on the actual date we visited one of our favorite restaurants, Killen’s Steakhouse. At Killen’s we split the amazing hunk of meat that they feature on the front of their Web site, a 32 oz dry-aged Kobe long bone-in ribeye.

Leaving Occidental

The worst part about going to California, for me at least, is that I have to leave it. I am originally from Ohio, and still love the place. I live in Houston, and Texas has its charms, but ever since my first visit, California has had my heart. I love the people, the hustle and bustle of its cities, and the splendor and beauty that is seemingly everywhere. Maybe most of all, I love the […]
