Do you love cooking with wine?

If you love cooking with wine, Holland House is a great place to venture. I have been cooking with them for about two years. The selection of these products is just fantastic. If you can’t come up with something to make, just add one of these to any basic meat or pasta sauce and you are good to go! Holland House Cooking Wine and Premium Vinegars are a welcome addition to any kitchen. Whether you want to make sauces, marinades, glazes or sautés, these cooking wines are the key. They have robust aromas that enhance even the simplest of dishes. For something incredible, open a bottle of Holland House Premium Vinegar- the flavors come alive, marinades sing and salads dazzle. If you are cooking with kids in the house, the alcohol cooks out of the dishes. Just make sure you cook all of your sauces well and to a boil when possible. If you are not a wine drinker, which I am not, you might want to choose recipes that call for the smaller amounts. I made Pasta Amatriciana last year, which called for a cup of the wine, and it was to much wine flavor for me. I am not a drinker by any means. I tried the recipe at a later date with just 1/2 cup of the wine and it was much better :)

Perfect Pairings at Aldi’s

Do you have ALDI’s grocery stores in your area? We do but, I must confess, I have never been in one locally. I vacationed in Atlanta a few years ago and shopped at one very briefly to pick up a few things. I didn’t pay much attention to the store itself and now I wish I had. It might help me with this article. I know stores are so different from one area to the next.

I recently was given the chance to write this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of ALDI. I went to the website and looked them up and found that there was one very close to my home that I didn’t even know existed. I agreed to participate and they sent me some gift certificates.

The funny thing was, when I received them, they included a shopping list to purchase various items that were important in association with wine for entertaining. Did you know ALDI’s sold wine? I didn’t! Heck, I didn’t even know grocery stores sold alcohol until I moved to Ohio. They don’t in PA where I am from!
