She and her husband, Cliff, who owns the Old New York Book Shop, regularly travel to Book Festivals and host book store owners as well as authors on a regular basis in their Atlanta home. They have a full bar always at the ready. "I never dreamt of writing recipes as a child, but from college and beyond, I wanted to help people get to the table. That’s where the magic happens. I love top-quality ingredients, proper technique and perfect execution of recipes, but the truth of the matter is that I want people to sit down together at the table and talk. The family table is so important. Just think about the magic that happens around a family table – from paying the bills on it, to doing school projects, to family holidays, planning weddings, and planning funerals. Sitting at it for dinner enriches our lives in the sharing and caring that is expressed during the meal."

Oatmeal Stout

Classic comfort food is the perfect match for the original comfort beer—oatmeal stout. With a pleasing velvet-like mouthfeel and the comforting flavors of chocolate and coffee, an oatmeal stout just feels like you’re home. For this classic dish of meatloaf and mozzarella, we suggest a comforting Creature Comforts Wheeler’s Drum oatmeal stout.

Zinfandel - Napa Valley, California

Zinfandel has a ripe, sweet and refreshing character that could easily replace the ketchup on your meatloaf. Zinfandel has acid (depending on where its grown, and I do recommend an acidic one), moderate tannins, and ripe berry fruit that help it go with a wide range of hearty proteins.
