Do you ever feel like your life is overscheduled and you are running from one thing to another? You finally sit down for a moment, only to have a pile a dirty dishes staring at you from the kitchen sink. As wonderful as modern technology can be, I think most of us have also felt the pressures and temptations that come with it. Whether you have a hard time leaving work at home, putting down your phone or laptop, or simply letting the dirty laundry pile up so you can simply enjoy a cup of coffee with someone special watching the sunrise or even better watching the sun set with a glass of wine, we all could probably use a little advice on how to disconnect and engage in some daily decadence. Sherri Dobay has managed to combine a collection of recipes and paired them the perfect wine and stories in her book, Daily Decadence: The Art of Sensual Living. Author, Sherri Dobay, grew up on a horse farm and is an artist in the form of both painting and writing. Her passion for wine led to one more creative outlet in creating her own small wine label, Ruby Kurant. You will even find her original artwork featured on the wine label! Dobay shares parts of her life journey with short stories that introduce you to new recipes, wines, and a little advice on how to achieve daily decadence.
The author of, Daily Decadence: The Art of Sensual Living, cleverly shares tips on how to live a less stressful and more meaningful and enjoyable life while simply sharing tidbits of her life and the the food and wine that have helped make those events that much more enjoyable. Daily Decadence: The Art of Sensual Living almost reads like a diary. This means you can easily read parts of the book whenever you have time, and easily put it down again until you have time to indulge for more. I found this to be the perfect book to read before bed because I could read about one or two of Sherri’s life events and the recipes she shared with them and then go to sleep. No wasting the night away feeling pressured to finish the book! However, there were a few times I was tempted to get out of bed and go downstairs to take inventory of my pantry so I could try out one of her recipes. Sherri Dobay shares a lot of great recipes in this book and even recommends the type of wine that would go well with the meal. I felt that I would have more closely related to a lot of her life stories a few years ago before I had any children, yet I still enjoyed the stories and I still found that many of the life lessons she shares throughout the book were relevant to me today. Daily Decadence is a unique book that has inspired me to focus more on the things in my life that I truly value, break up my old daily routine, and strive for some daily decadence.
