Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

Quite possibly my favorite thing in the world is a deep, dark chocolate chocolate chip muffin. I always treat myself to one on vacation, which is why this recipe is part of my Vacation at Home series. There’s just something about a rich muffin with melty chocolate chips that makes any day instantly special. One…

Coconut Shrimp with Mango Sauce

If I may say, I make the best coconut shrimp. That’s why I named the official recipe The Best Coconut Shrimp! Here I’ve added a delicious mango sauce, chunks of pineapple, avocado slices, and white rice for a ten minute dinner that feels like an instant vacation! My mom and I could not have loved this…

Folktale Viognier at the Lake

I still think about the dreamy afternoon I spent at Folktale Winery on my trip to Carmel, California. I loved the wine so much that I shipped quite a lot back home. I opened a bottle of Le Mistral, Folktale’s 2017 Viognier, at the lake house the other day for an evening picnic. In my…

Summer Floaties

I wasn’t planning on writing this article but I’ve been blown away by how many of you have messaged me about my new summer floaties and then immediately ordered them for yourselves! First of all, I have to say that I keep all of my floaties at my parents house, my childhood home, which is…

Kuhlman Cellars New Spring Wines

I could not be more excited about Kuhlman Cellars‘ new spring wines. I spent the last day of my pre-quarantine life in the beautiful Texas hill country sampling these new wines with Kuhlman Cellars’ winemaker Bénédicte Rhyne and Kuhlman’s Assistant Vigneron Ollivier. It was a gorgeous spring day in March and we three sat in…

LVE Côtes de Provence Rosé 2018

It was a golden afternoon at The Rose Table when I open John Legend’s rosé at the lake house one lazy Saturday. I was excited to try LVE’s Côtes de Provence Rosé 2018 after being impressed by LVE’s Cabernet Sauvignon a few months ago. The rosé did not disappoint. This gorgeously hued wine is the…

Barranca and BBQ

Barranca and BBQ: a match made in heaven. My friends at Kuhlman Cellars have long told me that this is a divine pairing but I hadn’t tried it for myself until tonight when I tucked into some local east Texas BBQ. I can now report that this pairing is a spiritual experience. I was blown…

Kuhlman Cellars 2017 Sangiovese

Last week I paired my favorite Chicken and Sausage Gumbo with Kuhlman Cellars 2017 Sangiovese and must have looked like the heart eye emoji all night. The spiciness of the andouille and cayenne complimented the Sangiovese so nicely. Disclaimer: Kuhlman Cellars is now one of my PR clients. My PR company is not affiliated with The Rose…

LVE Cabernet Sauvignon

I had the pleasure of drinking LVE Cabernet Sauvignon on a wine picnic with my dog Henry this weekend and wow. This is a hell of a wine. With 85% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and 15% Petit Verdot, the LVE Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich wine that wows. Sexy and alluring, this would be the perfect night…

Birthday Picnic

This is a rare personal post on The Rose Table! I had the best birthday today with my friends and I wanted to share some photos with you guys.  I spent all afternoon enjoying some of my favorite things (champagne, cheese, and horses) with some of my favorite people. I didn’t want to cook on…

Kuhlman Cellars 2016 Reserve Merlot

Everyone else’s new year’s resolution seems to be to get fit/get abs/lose weight but personally I just want to drink more wine and be happy. So far, so good! To savor wine is to savor life and that’s something that both Kuhlman Cellars and I whole-heartedly believe. I visited Kuhlman Cellars in the rolling hills…
