Southern California's wine country is located in the Temecula Valley, which is about an hour northeast of San Diego, an hour inland from Orange County, and an hour and a half southeast of Los Angeles. It is a perfect getaway from anywhere in Southern California. Temecula Valley Wine Country is home to over 30 amazing wineries and vineyards. One of the most popular of those wineries is Wilson Creek Winery and Vineyard, which is known for its Almond Sparkling Wine. I recently spent a Sunday afternoon there with my mom for a late Mother's Day treat and had a wonderful experience that I'd love to share.

Chrissy Teigen's Pot Pie Soup

Wednesday, May 23, 2018

I have been trying really hard lately to learn how to cook a wide variety of dishes. I like to think that I am actually improving quite a bit, but I still use a lot of shortcuts to make recipes easier and quicker. I have been wanting to try making some dishes more from scratch. I had seen a tweet from Chrissy Teigen recently where she was making her Pot Pie Soup recipe but she then put it into a casserole dish and covered it with Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuit mix. You can see her tweets about it here and here. It looked absolutely incredible and I knew I needed to learn how to make it ASAP!

I found her recipe on PopSugar and she also has a video making it with Kelly Ripa here.
