Welch’s Vineyard Tour

Remember last year when I got to meet Alton Brown at the Welch’s Harvest Dinner? Well this year, Welch’s sent Amelia on a tour of the Welch’s concord grape vineyards in Washington! Check out her experience below!

Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer

I recently had the opportunity to review the Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer B6000. I’ve juiced quite a bit over the past several years with my Cusinart 5-Speed Juicer so I was anxious to do a comparison. The product arrived in the mail and I couldn’t wait to use it! As I assembled the juicer with ease, I could not believe how compact the machine was and the small size of the pulp cup surprised me as it was nearly half the size of the pulp cup of my current juicer. I read through the entire instruction manual before I began. There were plenty of...
