Northwest Wine Summer in the Pacific Northwest means spending more time outdoors and cooking with regional ingredients. This is why we keep fresh white wines in the fridge and ready to open the moment we fire up the grill.
Curious what my garden looks like? Here’s your chance. My hometown of Enumclaw is hosting a tour of eight local gardens to benefit our hospital care van. The tour is Saturday and includes garden art vendors at every garden. I’ll be giving a seminar at the garden that is hosting the food vendors. The topic will be “Shortcuts to a Show Garden” and you’ll learn tips on how anyone can dress up a landscape with very little time or money.
You don’t have to go to some high-end steakhouse or shell out $200 a pound for ultra-marbled Wagyu beef from Japan to get flavorful, tender beef for your next barbecue. Just keep three crucial factors in mind: the grade, the grain and the aging. A well-informed purchase and a couple of easy prep steps can make the difference between a so-so steak and one that sends your eyeballs skyward.
The sun-drenched colors and inviting textures of summer provide plenty of decorating ideas. The trick is doing it right: A summer-inspired interior can become a tacky, tropical disaster if it’s done with too heavy a hand.
