Red Wine Cupcakes

by bosssanders on February 14, 2012 with no comments

Red Wine cupcakes: (makes around 12)

1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1 c sugar
1/2 c vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/2 t vanilla extract
1/3 c red wine (I used Glisson’s Sweet Red Wine)
1/3 c milk
red food coloring

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, oil, eggs and extract until smooth.
  • Add in the dry ingredients alternating with the wet.  The batter will be very liquidy.
  • Pour the batter into the cupcake liners and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in pan for a couple of minutes, and then remove to a cooling rack until room temperature.

Frost with cream cheese frosting — or, even a chocolate or strawberry frosting would be good.  Or, if you don’t feel like frosting (like me!), grab some white and milk chocolate chips and stuff your cupcakes (poke down through the top) right after they come out of the oven.  YUM!

Glisson Vineyards And Winery (A Fabulous Finds Friday Post!)

by bosssanders on February 10, 2012 with 1 comment

My family and I have a new favorite place: Glisson Vineyards and Winery.  To be more specific…their “tasting room” downtown Paducah KY.  With hand-made tiles made by a local artist, the front of the building gives you a hint of the unique experience you will have upon stepping inside.

Rows of locally-made wine line the shelves and for only $5, you can taste each of their 7 wines (and you get a glass to keep!)  From white wines (like their “Chardonnel”) to their “Blackberry” wine (and everything in between) — You are sure to find something you love!

And, if you’re looking for something a little different, the lovely Katie Glisson (owner) would love to mix you up a wine-a-rita – their own spin on “mixed drinks.”

It’s frozen and fabulous!

While their wine is enough to make the stop worthwhile, be sure to check out the local-artists’ work on display.

The goodness doesn’t stop there, though.  You see, the Glissons also have cheese platters, bread and oil, and specialty chocolate trays available.

And… special treats for the youngsters (alcohol-free) called “Minoritas.”

The wine is exceptional, the service is kind and lovely, and the atmosphere is relaxing and upbeat!

I can’t think of a better place to spend my Friday night.  Or, Saturday for that matter…

Want more info?

They are located at:  126 Market House Square, Paducah, KY 42003

They are open Thurs – Saturday Noon – 7pm (sometimes later)

Call them at 1(270) 210-0930  for directions or to find out where else you can find their fabulous wines and inquire about any new promotions or bands/music.

(And if you head out their way, be sure to let them know “Boss Sanders” sent you!)
