Snob Guide to Italian Wines

Snob Guide to Italian Wines: Veneto

Veneto is the Largest Producer of DOC Wines. You know this area because it’s where Venice and Verona are, but in terms of wine, you know it because it’s where Prosecco comes from. And if you’ve ever had brunch, you’ve had Prosecco.

Snob Guide to Italian Wines: Tuscany

The best part about getting to know wines from a particular country (other than the actual drinking of them, of course) is the underlying acquaintance with the culture. Italian wines, like Italian people, are true free spirits. This is by no means a comprehensive guide to Italian wines, though, which are notorious for being confusing and hard to categorize. This is a tip-of-the-iceberg overview. It’s not even the CliffsNotes; think of these as the margin notes on your CliffsNotes. My attempt is to cover the specifics, so you can start to get a deeper understanding by doing the fun part: drinking wine!

10 Healthy Snacks You’ll Actually Want to Eat

Snacking is an inevitable part of most of our days, especially as the temperatures drop. You can never go wrong with veggies or a piece of fruit (say what you want…I don’t trust any diet that tells you to cut out fruits – aside from dried ones and bananas since they have too much sugar), but sometimes our taste buds get the best of us and we want something a little bit naughty. Don’t reach for over-processed chips and cookies! There are plenty of alternatives that while not health foods per se, are healthier as they have clean ingredients, as well as some vitamins and nutrients, protein, and fiber. Check out some standouts to add to your shopping list!

Valentine’s Day: Foodie Gifts That Won’t Make Your Lover Fat

My boyfriend recently surprised me with a box of brownies, cookies, and mini cupcakes after returning from a week away. It was so sweet! But it was also the last thing I wanted in my apartment after a weeklong sugar and carb binge. I can’t be trusted around sugar. If it’s nearby, I eat it…and I do so ASAP…and that’s exactly what happened. Chocolate is king on Valentine’s Day, but it’s not the only option! There are plenty of foodie gifts that you can give your lover without “ruining” his or her diet. Here’s a look at some favorites.

Frugal Wine Snob: Notable Wines for Around $30

In the midst of a dizzying holiday party season, keep in mind one thing: bringing wine to a dinner doesn’t have to be stressful. Instead of spending a fortune on a “name brand” or apologizing for bringing a bottle you’re not sure about, here are some options for you to feel confident about, ones so good you can walk in and say, “Try this; it’s amazing!” Everyone likes to hear that, and when they compliment you on it, you can add, “It’s such a great find, and it’s not expensive” to impress your friends even more.
