I think I probably subscribe to about a million food and wine sites. I love it, ok? Don’t judge. I get so many emails everyday that I have become a master at bookmarking things to come back to later. But this one I just knew I had to share right away.
It may have been the title of the email that compelled my to open it right away. “pinot noir granitas aka semi frozen wine magic”. Hahahahahaha…. They had me at Semi Frozen Wine Magic!
This post came to me from a site called Wine Awesomeness. How could I not subscribe to a site with a name like that??? Anyway, here is the link wine soaked dishes. I will post the recipe below but check out this website. It had a lot of other interesting recipes as well.
