We got a nice little surprise this morning when we discovered the free Hello Vino app is featured in the 'Apps for Foodies' list on iTunes!

In the spirit of the Apple love, let’s throw some fruit in the weekend wine pairing!Want to make a mouthwatering meal that is simple to make? You could even take this one outdoors and impress your friends at a casual cookout.

There are lots of ways to cook pork, but with the warmer weather, why not hit it with yogurt, marmalade, and pineapple?Grilled Pork and Pineapple (credit: recipe.com)
