A wonderfully appealing red from a family-owned Piedmont estate, Sassisto is a blend of Barbera with 10% Nebbiolo. Old vines mean concentration and heft.

I pulled aside the curtain and peered out the motel window. Palm trees swayed gently in the breeze. A cyclist pedaled along the oceanfront. Beyond him, the Pacific stretched out calm and blue as far as the eye could see. Nice view, I thought, given that my room rate was $79.

Sure, the inhabitants of Biosphere 2 ate a high-fiber, low-fat and mostly vegetarian diet while safely ensconced in their lovely domed world.

Question: My question concerns all of the new turkey products that are on the market. I am concerned about cholesterol and fat in our diets and have switched to turkey ham, turkey sausage and turkey pastrami. Am I only fooling myself that we are getting less fat and cholesterol? Answer: Yes and no. According to the National Turkey Federation, "Turkey deli meats are made from the cured meat of the lean turkey thigh without adding extra fats.

The wine sheets down the sides of the glass, a lush crimson-purple with a head of raspberry foam. It's Lambrusco, the fizzy red wine from Emilia-Romagna that most serious wine drinkers wouldn't go near. The surprise is how delicious this one from Barbolini is, a mouthful of bright fruit and earth.

A few years ago, my husband and I decided to renew a Brady family tradition. As a child, Brian always celebrated the Fourth of July at Lacy Park in San Marino with his family. It is a big, beautiful park where it's easy to spend the day without getting bored. One catch: No grilling allowed. What to bring? I pack this substantial sandwich that goes a long way on a long day. It's one of those sandwiches that actually gets better as it sits.
