There’s nothing like a chilled glass of wine on a hot summer afternoon which brings me to another wine worth mentioning from Trader Joe’s.

Who would have thought a tablespoon of unsalted grass-fed butter whipped into your coffee would make one smooth tasting cup? Well, it does! Our friend Jonathan, who visits often, introduced Mike and I to coffee with butter... it was quite the experience and one we continue to savor.
