We were back on AM Northwest!

AM Northwest Segment with Vindulge

We were so stoked to have been asked back on AM Northwest, this time to cook up something not usually associated with BBQ – Vegetables!

But not just any vegetable.



Smoked Tomatoes

With tomato season gearing up here in the Pacific Northwest we wanted to show folks some super cool things you can do by smoking your tomatoes. For the segment we cooked up one of my favorite recipes – Smoked Tomato Bisque.

What goes best with any tomato soup? Grilled cheese of course. But you know us. We couldn’t do just any ol’ grilled cheese. Nope. We had to go over the top and pair it with a Smoked Brisket Grilled Cheese with loads of smoked brisket sandwiched between smokey cheddar and creamy nutty Comté cheese.

You can find the recipe for the Smoked Brisket Grilled Cheese Sandwich here.

Smoked Pork Tenderloin with Smoked Blackberry Bourbon Sauce

July 21, 2015

Pork tenderloin was one of those gateway meats that brought me back to the dark side –or rather, eased my transition from being a pseudo-vegetarian to a smoked-meat-loving carnivore. Once I got past the constant visions of Babe, the talking pig, I learned how delicious the protein could be, if cooked correctly. Shortly after we […]

Shrimp Ceviche on Wine4.Me

July 15, 2015

I’m not gonna lie, it’s been hot here in Portland the last several weeks. Like the kind of hot that breaks our air conditioner from overuse (true story, it happened last week. ugh!). I’m from Phoenix, AZ, so you’d think I know hot, but alas, since living in Oregon I’ve become a wimp. A total […]

The DeLille legacy goes on

July 10, 2015

Quite often you hear stories about second or third generation winemakers, those who learned from their parents before them. It’s not as common to hear about the winemakers who mentored and trained young and aspiring winemakers, who then went on to start their own successful wineries or businesses. Those mentorships can often create learning experiences […]

Homemade Smoked Butter

July 9, 2015

Sometimes we get bizarre ideas about smoking various foods and the flavor profile it will impart, things that you probably might not ever think to smoke — like butter. Inspired by adding a little something extra to a rib eye steak to just crush the flavor, smoked butter — or more specifically smoking cream and […]

July 1, 2015

With grilling season in full swing (did I really just type that?), outdoor cooking fanatics have eagerly dusted off their grills and started cooking up the usual suspects: burgers, steaks, and dogs. But what about the less usual suspects, like grilled fish and vegetables? In my most recent articles for Wine4.Me I write about some […]

Sparkling Watermelon Cocktail

June 30, 2015

This could be the red for your red, white, and blue celebrations this coming weekend! I used to have an aversion to artificial watermelon-flavored things (candy in particular). But fresh watermelon, I could gobble up for days. And with one of my favorite holidays on the horizon it’s time to bust out some watermelon. There’s […]

Run with me! 2015 Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon…

June 26, 2015

… Or 2-person relay Few things in the world motivate me to wake up before sunrise on a weekend. An early flight to a tropical destination (sans kids) is one of them. Tickets to a private concert brunch with never ending mimosas and musical performances by Prince is another. Waiting in line to finally try my […]
