These muffins are an all-time favorite in our house. You can use a cup-for-cup sugar substitute or regular sugar. Wish to make them with sugar, but less refined? Use evaporated cane juice. It’s tan instead of white, evidence of its less refinement. Meanwhile, enjoy this recipe!

Today is National Tequilla Day. Are you wondering, “Is tequilla gluten free?”

While traditional tequilla is made from agave, some makers add sugar or additives to the fermented agave. The additives may contain gluten. To determine whether a bottle of tequilla is truly gluten free, look for the words, “100% de agave” or “100% agave”.

Remember the old classic carrot and raisin salad? Well, this spicy carrot salad replaced that in our house a few years ago. The older we get, the spicier we enjoy our food. If you enjoy a little spice to your food, this is a must try. I like to keep some in the frig to use when I don’t have time to make a vegetable, usually weeknights. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

Speed Up the Decanting of Red Wine

How Long Should Red Wine Breathe? Plus Faster Methods

Have you ever wanted a glass of red wine, but you didn’t…

Have you ever wanted a glass of red wine, but you didn’t plan ahead. If you’re wondering how long should red wine breathe, you’ve come to the right place. You usually allow it to breathe so that the oxygen can tone down the tannins and allow the flavors to mingle with them. Tannins as well as alcohol is what causes that sting in the back of your throat. When the wine doesn’t sting the back of your throat, or it does, but much less prior to allowing it to breathe, your wine is ready to drink. I call that sting in the back of the throat, a “bite”. When it has a bite, it needs a little more aging or breathing. Well, rather than waiting 30 minutes to several hours for a wine to breathe before you can enjoy it, there are some things you can do to speed up the process.
