Box wines can be the perfect solution

Box wines can be the perfect solution

When my husband and I met and began dating, it was also the beginning of our wine journey. We would spend evenings playing gin rummy and sipping wine. I think we felt sophisticated coming home after work, having a glass of wine while making dinner and discussing our day. After dinner we would carry our glasses to the front porch and get out the deck of cards.

Make chicory coffee at home

Make chicory coffee at home

It's not the easiest thing to perfect, but it's a lot cheaper than a Café Du Monde habit.

One of my favorite coffees, bar none, has always been New Orleans' famous Cafe Du Monde coffee with chicory. Whenever I happen to find one of the familiar orange cans in a specialty market for any sort of reasonable price, I stock up.

Coffeemakers to please (most) coffee drinkers

Coffeemakers to please (most) coffee drinkers

When I got home last month, I had planned to reward myself in some small way with something for the house. Something that would've been impractical on the road but would be great to have at home. I decided on a modest purchase — a Baratza Encore grinder. It's a great grinder, well worth the sticker price, and it made as much of a difference in my daily caffeination as I'd imagined.

A couple of times each year, a wine distributor in Wichita hosts a wonderful wine tasting in the Petroleum Club. The dates are usually in the spring and fall and introduce new wines as well as showcasing some recognizable favorites. When attending the tasting last November, I rolled my eyes and shook my head with the name of this wine: Fifty Shades of Grey White Silk.

Wichita, be proud of your coffee

Wichita, be proud of your coffee

Hey, Wichita, I'm back. I have returned from the road after about a year and a half. I have slept in my own bed, I have eaten food made by something other than a restaurant, and I have been to most, but not all, of my favorite coffee spots in town. There is at least one new place you've got to check out, and I say so with some amount of urgency. We'll get to them later.

IL Prosecco is not champagne

IL Prosecco is not champagne

In my opinion, one of the most interesting programs on TV is the British crime drama Sherlock. The show represents a contemporary adaptation of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson doing their best to solve crimes or mysteries. In one of the shows (spoiler alert if you're not up to date), Dr. Watson gets married and Sherlock is asked to be best man, obligating him to make the wedding toast.
