How to Make Personalized Wine Glasses

Tackle this simple DIY personalized wine glasses project in less than 30 minutes for a cool and different wine experience.

When it comes to a good project, I know I’m going to like it when (a) it’s simple to do, (b) inexpensive to make and (c) involves wine. It’s the trio of success! If you’re like me you’ve probably eyed up etched wine glasses in the past, but simply can’t pull the trigger because they want too much $$$ for them.

Dark Chocolate Molten Lava Cake

Ring in the New Year with a decadent dark chocolate molten lava cake.

Are you still looking for the perfect dessert to celebrate the New Year? In my opinion, a special occasion calls for an extra special treat and this dark chocolate molten lava cake is just that. The gooey, chocolaty center from the truffle pours out upon the first slice and is mopped up with a dusting of powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Without fail, it’s a mouthwatering bite full of rich flavors that will have you protecting your plate from any wandering forks!

Smoked Baby Back Ribs

Nothing quite says summer like firing up the grill and smoking some baby back pork ribs. And even though summer is coming to a close, we're still experiencing the glorious warm weather that signifies the arrival of two of our favorite things: harvest and football. So to celebrate another stunning yield of gorgeous California grapes and the start of a new football season, we wanted to share one of favorite backyard barbecue recipes with you: smoked baby back ribs.

Ma Fiddle’s Sauerkraut and Brats

What's the age old saying? Good artists copy and great artists share amazing family recipes? Something like that, right? We asked Murphy-Goode Winemaker Dave Ready Jr. to share one of his favorite summer recipes and he immediately thought of Ma Fiddle’s Sauerkraut and Brats. Dave distinctly remembers his best friend's mom making her famous sauerkraut and brats recipe, as it was the highlight to any party and always the start to a good evening with friends. You really can't go wrong with a sauerkraut recipe that calls for wine and bacon.
