Thanks vivfox.

I felt bad in a way for even talking about alcohol because
so many have a problem with it. But I've always been curious
to how it makes people feel when they've had too much. And
apparently "one" bottle isn't enough to make me feel anything.

Maybe because I had eaten dinner with it. An empty stomach
might have made the difference.

Thank you.

I'd asked for recommendations from a few people.
Wound up buying two bottles. Just drank the one.

I'll have to find the other bottle and see if it meets
your standards. It was more expensive than the first.

I'd wanted to try one of the Coppola wines after I'd seen
a video about their vineyards.

I'm not posting this because I'm a hard-core vegan. I eat mostly vegan food but also a little organic and goats dairy and occasionally fish and eggs.

I spotted this video today and it relates to some posts I made last year about the pharmaceuticals industry and our diets. I found it very interesting, and this doctor is good at getting the points across in an easily understandable way.

Healthy food as a healing agent and for prevention of disease, is something I'm very passionate about.

Just as a side note... I think it can be difficult to find a healthy, balanced vegan diet - but it is possible. Certainly not a vegan diet that is still full of sugar, wheat and processed grains I've seen a number of unhealthy vegans.
I've read quite a bit about wholefoods diets that eliminate processed food but still include some meat or fish and dairy, and these diets can be more practical and sensible for some people.

These last two weeks it's been awfully hot, the weather hasn't been this torrid in decades, and as a result I had to put to a halt my passion for bakery. However fortunately I've remembered some no-bake recipes I settled for some interesting variation of Tiramis¨ (one of my past favorites with zabaglione) and then last Sunday I tried this super easy 10 minutes Pavesini roll-cake. It's so easy it practically rolls itself up, the fill was ricotta and pistachio custard:









I will try them again someday when I have last minute demands, but for now I really miss my cakes.

Thanks to you for the compliments, however it's very simple, if you (or anyone) want to try you just need:

4 small packs of Pavesini or similar biscuits
coffee, milk or any other drink you like
half-pound of cream cheese
half-pound of chocolate spread, custard or any other thing you like

You just have to shortly dip the biscuits in the coffee then place them over a sheet of baking paper in 4 rows of 11 Pavesini. After that you mix the cream cheese with the spread (or anything else you've chosen) and gently spread it on the biscuits. Then, starting from the side where the Pavesini are horizontal, you wrap the roll on itself aiding yourself with the baking paper and close it. Put it on a tray and leave in the fridge at least 5 hours before serving, or even better the whole night, and if you put the roll in the freezer for a couple of hours before cutting it, it will be much easier to handle.

It's easier done than said, look at some internet pictures:
