“You’re going to ask people to drink milk in a winery? That’s just crazy”. Well, it might have sounded a bit crazy but you just can’t pass up a good opportunity to do a demo at such a great place. The other thing is we don’t just sell a great tasting dairy milk alternative. We […]

The first surprise was learning that I couldn’t just substitute one kind of non-wheat flour for regular flour. I spent much money buying rice flour, oat flour, and several […]
I love to entertain, to feed my friends. I love the discussions that happen during mealtime, to hear people’s stories.
