With national ‘Margarita Day’ (or Margarita Week, in my household) happening last week, here’s a simple way to say ‘summer, get here fast!’.
No flash in this one…if you aren’t in the mood to get all fancy with your ‘rita, here’s a simple way to make a delicious Margarita on the rocks! The most crucial parts are using a quality, real sugar cane (look for high fructose corn syrup and AVOID) and a quality orange liquor…no need to go Grand Mariner on this, but don’t get the cheap triple sec either.

One of us loves flavored or infused cigars, the other thinks most are crap, however one thing we can agree on is the fact that Gurkha’s Cognac Infused Grand Reserve is neither crap nor overly flavored. Watch our review on this elegantly packaged celebratory afternoon smoke!
This interesting find is an excellent purchase at around the $50 price point. For those of us who don’t run to Scotch as our ‘go-to’ spirit due to the mustiness of the peat moss, this one starts smooth with some peat edge and then really opens up and gets sweet with the addition of a few drops of water.

Technically, ‘Rioja’ is both a color (red) and region of Spain. We explain in the video below that this wine, when put up against a Sonoma cabernet sauvignon has a more ‘rust’ like appearance. While this “may” be more typical of a rioja, we stated it as a fact of the wine when in reality, that was more ‘drunk speak’ than truth. In fact, this wine is a blend of 60% Tempranillo and 40% Garnacha, Graciano, and Mazuelo. While aged in oak, the Pujanza Norte didn’t have the oak flavor of the cab. At about $100 a bottle, the Pujanza Norte isn’t an everyday drinking wine, but it is a beautiful celebratory wine with big, soft tannins and a long finish. The site Grapes Of Spain has more, including snooty ratings of this wine!
Watch the video and hear more about this wonderful Spanish find, and thanks for sharing the bottle, Dave!

So, there are hot dogs and then there’s the BAM DOG! No, nothing from Emeril Lagasse here…watch the video review on what Steve and his crew have re-created. I mean, sure the hot dog with added twist of chili and cheese or fresh tomato, bright green relish and celery salt to make a traditional Chicago Dog is great, but a Bam Dog breaks the mold.
Think home made, sustainable local meat with no filler in their ‘dogs’ (more like sausage instead of that old scrap meat ballpark frank you might praise god about) surrounded by a pleathora of tantalizing toppings and homemade bun. THIS is what Bam Dog! is all about.

We love trying different cooking techniques and here we try out the Himalayan Salt Block. Some questions came to mind before we even began:
There were others, but those were the first to come to mind. We paired this Mahi Mahi with a wonderful white wine from Paso Robles:
