Wednesday Wine Tasting
Stop by The Tasting Room in Scottsdale between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. this Wednesday, December 3rd for a special tasting of Opolo Vineyards' wines. The Paso Robles, CA winery is known for their award-winning Zinfandels, but will be offering a tasting of five different styles of wine from their collection. Each wine will be paired with a complementing cheese and meat. The tasting will cost you $15 per person but you'll get $5 of that back if you purchase one of the featured wines. No need to RSVP, just show up and have fun.

Dessert December

Okay, so last week we were super well-behaved and only ate delicious healthy things -- but we'll  be honest, we only did it so we could stuff our faces with sugar for the rest of the month. For the next three weeks we will be sharing our favorite holiday treats with you. First up -- homemade peppermint bark. 

The holidays are not complete without a batch of creamy chocolaty peppermint bark. We like these pretty sweets made in tree-shaped cookie cutters. Click here for the recipe.
