Boozy Food Fanatic

Heather is a freelance food and beverage writer with a fondness for garlic, freshly baked bread, stinky cheese, Mexican cuisine, single malt Scotch, and a good cocktail. Over the years, her liquor bottles began inching off of their shelf and onto her pantry and book shelves, taking up precious square footage. She decided it was time to start using that booze for something other than cocktails, and so started her love affair with boozy food. Catch up with her adventures in food and drink on her blog, girlichef...where all roads lead to the kitchen.

Appetizers
Baked brie with chardonnay raisins - a reason to celebrate today and well into 2015. Spoon tipsy golden raisins and chardonnay syrup flecked with vanilla beans over warm, melty rounds of baked Brie cheese for a show-stopping appetizer.
