    Wine and food pairing

    Taste is very subjective. Here at Casa de Hoot, we drink what we like. I recommend that you do the same. We prefer the wine from a fairly local source, Duplin Winery. They produce muscadine wines and they are very good - at least we think so.

    Need help with baking temp and time

    3-5 minutes under the broiler.....makes sense. Everything is already cooked 'cept the cheese. Just get it all hot enough to melt the cheese. Gonna try it.
