This Week in Food Blogs: Valentine's Day Treats & More Italian Wine, Please

Reuters: More people are buying Italian wines, and they aren't Italians. In fact, this Reuters article states that Italian wines "are the top imported wine in the United States, which is the world's largest consumer market." People born in the 1980s and later (millennials) are the driving force behind the increase in Italian wine sales. Sweet, sparkling wines, for example Prosecco, are the ones consumers are buying, followed by Moscato.
Patty and David Said...: Sometimes you stumble upon awesome restaurants, just as Patty and David did last week. After enjoying sushi at Sushi King, they found Oui Desserts, a French bakery currently in the soft-opening stage. While Oui Desserts currently offers only four macaron flavors (chocolate, vanilla, coffee and raspberry), Patty and David enjoyed the chocolate and vanilla, noting that the shells from these macarons gently cracked as soon they took their first bite. And they are $1.50 each.
Lover.ly: Tired of the same old same old when it comes to Valentine's Day desserts? Well, try these cereal-topped donuts from Lover.ly. Either purchase plain cake donuts or make them yourself (this post includes a cake donut recipe), then pour the vanilla glaze on top, followed by a sprinkling of your cereal of choice; they suggest Fruity Pebbles, Cap'n Crunch and Reese's Puffs.
