Gallo introduces Columbia’s new wines

Columbia Winery has had a trying dozen years. The longtime Washington winery has changed hands three times since 2001 and now looks like it will enjoy some much-needed stability.

Big-Game eats: Aim for a Super Sloppy Sunday

Love it or hate it, the chopped meat and tomato sauce sandwich that is the Sloppy Joe — I dare you to try eating one of those babies without staining your fingers or shirt — is for many an iconic lunch food of childhood. For meat eaters of a certain age, the messy sandwich also showed up fairly often on the dinner table, too, usually with tater tots and sometimes an iceberg-lettuce salad, if my mom was feeling especially fancy.

No longer crabby about grilling crab

If you ever needed a reminder of how much good there is in the world — and these days, who doesn’t? — just cook a Dungeness crab. It is so easy to prepare; the meat is so sweet and tender; it is so nearly perfect just as it comes in its original wrapper. Surely, some greater power must love us mightily to give us anything that delivers such pleasure and demands so little.

Think small: ‘Little chicken’ chic

Frank Costanza was right after all. “Seinfeld” fans will recall the 1996 episode when the crusty Costanza, played by Jerry Stiller, pointed to the bird on his plate and asked, “What is this thing anyway?” Told it’s a “Cornish game hen” by his son’s snooty prospective in-laws, he replied, “What is that? Like a little chicken?”

Sweet history

Desserts are the sweet stuff of which memories are made, particularly in a holiday season, a time typically so rich with recollections. Salute that spirit with a historic dessert rooted in the North American past. For while tastes, trends and technology come and go, the country’s sweet tooth has remained ever keen.
