Sherry is making a huge comeback in the wine world, both as a base in cocktails and as an amazing pairing for savory foods. Although typically considered a wine best enjoyed with desserts and dogged as a sweet sipper for great aunts and English vicars alike, sherry is so much more! The wine comes in a myriad of styles, from bone dry to seductively sweet. The tricky part about this unique wine is to understand the label so that you choose a style you’ll love instead of one you’ll toss out.
Does anyone really need an excuse to celebrate the joys of the ooey gooey goodness that is a grilled cheese sandwich? In my house, everyday is grilled cheese day! I love good old American cheese and white bread. For a change of pace, try one of these “big kid” sandwiches that are great as an entrée with soup or salad or cut up in bite-sized pieces for hors d’ouevres.
