Making Better Dishes

How committed are you to creating interesting, delicious foods? I began thinking more seriously about honing my cooking abilities a few years back, and it was really cool to me to see how much happier it made my family. Night after night, I would prepare dishes that I knew everyone would love, and it was really neat to me to see our little family growing closer together. I decided to start a website completely dedicated to cooking better foods for your family, so you should check it out. I know that a lot of these tips have helped me along the way.

3 Wines That Pair Perfectly With Apple Pie

If you're like many people, you can't resist a good piece of homemade apple pie, particularly when made with freshly picked apples. Now that harvest time is here, you can count on your local grocery store and farmers markets being full of just-picked bounty, and from Granny Smith to Honeycrisp, you'll be able to find your favorite apples and whip up the first apple pie of the season. Whether you'll be enjoying it with the family after a casual meal or serving it as the finishing touch for an elegant dinner party, you can't go wrong with an apple pie that's warm from the oven and topped with a scoop of French vanilla ice cream.

Some people like a cold glass of milk with their apple pie, while others may prefer a hot cup of coffee. Some people may like the idea of enjoying a nice glass of wine with their pie but can't seem to find one that pairs well with it. Apple pie is one of those food items that tastes terrible when served with the wrong kind of wine. For instance, strong red wines completely overpower the taste of apple pie, and some whites may not have a solid-enough flavor profile to hold their own with this dessert. Fortunately, there are certain wines that seem as if they were created specifically for serving with apple pie — following are three of them. 

Pinot Grigio 

Pinot Grigio is a light white wine with enough fruity accents to pair perfectly with a nice slice of apple pie. Pinot Grigio varies significantly depending on region and vintage, so look for a bottle with a serious fruity presence by reading the tasting notes provided by your online wine store.

Sparkling Rosé

Sparkling Rosé is a pale pink to light red wine that literally goes with everything. It ranges from fairly dry to semi-sweet — you'll want one on the sweet side to serve with apple pie. No matter what the occasion, this wine will end the evening on a festive note. 


Sauternes is a sweet dessert wine from the Bordeaux region of France that's traditionally served with classic French apple tarts. The only difference between this particular dessert and its American counterpart is that American apple pie is covered by a classic dough crust on the top, while French apple tarts have a topping made of cinnamon, sugar, and bread crumbs rather than a crust. Either variety pairs well with a good glass of Sauternes.
