Acai Bowl 101

One of my favorite afternoon snacks is an acai (ah-sah-EE) bowl…I’m eating one right now! For those of you who are well-acquainted with this purple berry from Brazil you know all about the high levels of anti-oxidants and the amazing energy they pack. I am not going to go into great detail about the omega this and the vitamin something that…all that you need to know at this point is that they are delicious and a great way to bring healthy habits to your snacking.

Pasteurized? Homogenized? What’s the difference? What do they mean?

People are always asking me what the difference is between pasteurized and homogenized milk, so I thought I’d try to break it down so it’s easier for everyone to understand.

Nairagi Seafood Kit

New products hit our stores every week. Some come from big manufacturers or outside vendors while others are ones we develop ourselves. Sometimes these offerings hit the mark while at other times… well, let’s just say they might not quite meet our expectations. I suppose that’s all a part of the process of learning and innovation. But sometimes, there’s an item that really WOWs --- a product that is so good we want to tell everyone we know about it. And that’s exactly what I ... more »

Alexander Valley Vineyards' "Gewurz"

So many times, I ask a customer what they like to drink and the answer is Chardonnay... but when offered a sip of a sweeter varietal like Gewurtaminer or Reisling, they smile and often report ..YES, this is a wine I can really like!"

BEAR FLAG WINES!

Every once in a while, I find a wine that I know I will love. When I saw and tasted these new wines, I liked them so much that I had an entire shipment sent to Hawaii. The best part about these wines, believe it or not, is the label on each bottle. They’re just so fun and not even close to the intimidating labels that you see on most wines these days. Similar to the labels, these wines (especially the new blended wines like Menage A Trois) are easy to enjoy for all wine drinkers, old and ... more »
