Good thing out of town calories don't count - because I did some damage this weekend! I ate as many Chips-a-Hoy cookies as I wanted, dipped everything I could find in Nutella, and said yes every time to whip cream on my decaf mocha.

Wine delivered to your home? Why not?

Wine delivered to your home? Why not?

I saw this great deal on Travel Zoo and had to share it -- just in case you enjoy sipping a glass of wine on your patio on a warm summer evening.

Online wine store The Finest Bottle is offering Sacramento residents $75 worth of wine for $25. I'm not sure how good these wines are, but they claim they that there are good vintages such as the 2007 Canoe Ridge Dry Riesling and 2009 Camino del Toro Malbec.

But the part of the deal I liked is that instead of getting 5 bottles of average wine for $25, you could use the deal to order one exceptional bottle worth $75 and pay only $25.  Imagine getting a premium bottle of 2005 Yalumba Lyndoch Shiraz (regularly $72.50) for $25.

West Rocklin just got sweeter with cupcake store opening soon

West Rocklin just got sweeter  with cupcake store opening soon

It all began when three minds came together to create and develop more than just a simple treat.  The Icing on the Cupcake team has taken their cumulative 50 years of baking experience and turned it into an edible work of art.  With locations already in Folsom, Midtown, and Rocklin, IOTC is expanding and opening another facility in West Rocklin (near Hwy 65) at 6839 Lonetree Blvd. in mid June.

Icing on the Cupcake’s newest West Rocklin location will be the fourth for this team of baking experts including Christee Owens, Shirley Nagasawa, and Chuck Meridith.  Starting out as a small production company and growing at a rapid pace, Icing on the Cupcake now has a production of over 4,000 cupcakes a day.  The new 7,000 square foot “commissary” facility will permit them the opportunity for an even larger production and delivering radius.
