Do you have a guilty pleasure food? “Soufflés in the middle of the night … I will get in my car and get a chocolate soufflé at midnight, and a glass of wine, and remind myself that most of my troubles are just in my mind.”

Wine Pairing Suggestion: This chocolate souffle pairs perfectly with our Handcraft Petite Sirah – a wonderful, fruit-forward wine where you will taste jam from beginning to end.

*Urkel would not lead you astray. End your day with this chocolate souffle and a glass of Petite Sirah.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
