The Boozy Lifestyle goal is to avoid gastronomic catastrophe. There are some excellent books on pairing if you’re interested in a painstaking journey into balancing the flavors of food with the perfect wine
I was resistant to getting an Instant Pot at first. Not because I’m afraid of some new-fangled appliance or to learn a few new tricks in the kitchen. We’re just not big fans of braised meats, particularly beef. So why did I need an Instant Pot?

I have a secret fantasy. In it, I’m appearing on The Rachael Ray Show to promote my book about living the Boozy Lifestyle and I’m asked to participate in a cooking challenge. The game is to create a meal out of five random ingredients. I know I’ll ace it since I perform this very activity at least a couple of times a week.
The nice pair that I’m referring to is my shrimp with baby bok choy over rice and Coppola’s Sauvignon Blanc.
Having to choose between salad and Cabernet is my “Sophie’s Choice” of food and wine.
