On Friday I introduced you to Kimberly Jackson of Jax Vineyards. YumSugar and I met her at a recent wine tasting, where we were attracted to one bottle in particular: Y3 Chardonnay. We loved the sleek and chic appearance. The wine with its crisp, clean, freshly acidic taste and bright, rich aromas made it highly drinkable and totally food-friendly. The winery is owned and run by Kimberly and it's an exclusive wine seen on many episodes of HBO's Entourage. When Vinnie, E, & Co. are sipping Char while out at one of LA's hottest eateries, it's most likely they are sipping a bottle from the Jax Y3 label. At only $18.00 a bottle this is an affordable must drink-get a bottle today to enjoy while you watch the season premiere tonight! We spoke with Kimberly about how she stumbled upon the Entourage set and what pairs well with her Chardonnay.

On behalf of YumSugar and I we would like to wish all of the doting dads out there a very Happy Father's Day! To our own fathers we appreciate all of the love and support you have unconditionally provided us over the years. I personally have to thank my father for teaching me how to cook! One of my earliest memories is making brownies with Dad. He told me to put my blanket away because it might get chocolate-y. Being the rebellious 3 year old that I was, I didn't listen and ended up getting chocolate all over my blanket proving to me at an early age that dads are seldom wrong! How about you? What fond food memories do you have of your father? What dish do you enjoy sharing with dad? Did your dad cook??
As much as I love a delicious grilled steak and a juicy bbq chicken, sometimes I get a little tired of the classic standbys. A whole salmon screams summer and makes for a perfect dinner party dish. Serve with a side salad and grilled tomatoes for a scrumptious, healthy well balanced meal. Pour a chilled white wine, sit back and relax because it's Sunday.
