Finding Our Way Now

Finding Our Way Now My blog is dedicated to “Finding Our Way Now” in life and work. I talk about the many demands we face when trying to balance life and work in our daily lives. It is a way for me to share all the lessons I have learned throughout my life and work experiences in the hope that it will benefit others.

Franciscan Estate Winery: #Wine

We very much enjoyed this wine and would definitely seek it out again. I can see how it would pair well with my Easy Dry Rub Ribs. In fact, I may just have to make my ribs and have some friends over for a gathering and to share this Franciscan Equilib...

Homemade Chocolate Pudding: #Recipe

To me, homemade chocolate pudding is a super comfort food. First because it’s chocolate and second because it was one of my favorite things as a kid. Aside from being a favorite, what makes it even better is how easy this version of my this simple homemade chocolate pudding recipe is to make.  Much like...

Folie à Deux Chardonnay: #Wine

Red or white, it’s always a conundrum when there are so many good wines around. It was Father’s Day, and we were in Napa Valley just south of St. Helena having lunch at Mustards Grill. It was another hot summer day, so salads, a cold soup, and seared scallops were in the offing. The wine we...

Coleslaw Recipe Two Ways: #Recipe

Summer is definitely here, and the temperatures are hot, as in 109 degrees hot. It is yet another season with increasingly high temperatures. When it’s this hot the last thing we want to do is cook, especially a hot meal, heating up the kitchen and our home. So I decided why not make coleslaw, to...

Pairing Food and Wine: #Wine

Quite often I’m asked about my thoughts regarding pairing food and wine. Before I give you my opinion, let me explain. I’ve said it many times; I’m no expert. These are just my thoughts. Whenever I’m preparing a meal for family and friends, these are the things that pop into my mind when I’m out shopping...

Freezer Plum Jam: #Recipe

I’m the one that usually arrives at my neighbor’s doors with goodies in hand to taste test. I was in the midst of packaging up my donuts to pass out, and my doorbell rang. It was my neighbor with an enormous bag of plums from his tree. The plums were small but very flavorful....

Pretend Listener: #Musing (Podcast)

What is a Pretend Listener? Let me explain. It happens to all of us at some point in time. Our significant other asks a question. We answer only to realize they haven’t listened to a word we’ve just said. Such an act is utterly frustrating and hurtful. Yet it’s really hard to throw stones...

Sobon Estate Winery Cougar Hill Zinfandel: #Wine

It’s nearing the 4th of July; time to celebrate with a nice glass of wine. Living so close to so many wine regions in Northern California is both fantastic and a bit dangerous. My full wine chiller would attest to that fact… LOL. One of the areas we frequent is the Amador Wine Region located...

Cream Pies In A Jar: #Recipe

When it comes to Cream Pies, one, in particular, stands out for me. That would be a Banana Cream Pie. My Mom loved bananas, so it made perfect sense that she would make Banana Cream Pie at any opportunity. While perfecting my homemade vanilla pudding recipe, I thought it would be fun to recreate that pie but...

Sangria for Wine Lovers: #Wine #Beverage

I love it when I’m approached in regards to the possibility of sharing an article from another site that relates to one of my favorite subjects – wine. It’s something I don’t often do, however, this article from FIX.com was too good to pass up. It’s packed full of great information about Sangria and all...
