WTN: Osprey’s Dominion 2002 Blush de Noir (North Fork of Long Island)

My New Steak Marinade

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything about my adventures and exploits in the kitchen. Mostly that’s because for the past month I’ve been focusing on food that I can get on the table quickly and e...

Congratulations to the Winners of the 2007 American Wine Blog Awards

Sadly, LENNDEVOURS didn’t win in either category in which it was a finalist. But, I’m not one for sour grapes (pun intended). It probably didn’t help any that I was the only blog in the category that wasn̵...
