Sparklers for Valentine’s Day

Independence Day is not the only time of year for fireworks. Here are two sparkling wines that are sure to make your Valentine’s Day twinkle!

Louis Bouillot Brut Rose has long been one of our favorite sparkling wines. Louis Bouillot was founded in 1877 in a little village nestled in the heart of the Cote d’Or (Hill of Gold) in Burgundy, France.

Recipe: Kale, Pine Nut & Golden Raisin Salad

Our deli’s Kale, Pine Nut & Golden Raisin Salad is a long-time staff favorite at Mollie Stone’s, so we were very excited when our chefs shared the recipe.

The dressing has only two ingredients – simply olive oil and lemon juice. Nonetheless, it’s the perfect way to bring together flavors of hearty veggies, sweet golden raisins and toasted pine nuts. Since the kale is raw, it’s more resistant to wilting. This means you can make enough for a few lunches during more


Meet the Piñata apple

Mollie Stone’s has a new crop: Piñata apples! The Piñata is crisp and juicy, exemplifying the classic apple flavor that you love with a unique tropical finish.

The Piñata first arrived in the US in 2004, and is now grown exclusively in eastern Washington by more

KIND bars & cheese for a simple yet elegant appetizer

As you savor the last few moments of 2011 and ring in the New Year, impress your guests with an appetizer of KIND bars and cheese.

KIND bars are all-natural fruit and nut bars that make a great snack on their own. For a seriously scrumptious appetizer in a matter of minutes, simply cut each KIND bar into 6 to 8 pieces (bite-size) and top with a piece of your favorite cheese. We love the resulting combination of a sweet nutty more

Heart Watch IV Comes to Mollie Stone’s

Awareness of one’s own health is important. Eating healthy and exercising enough are not enough! Steps must be taken to make sure the body is in proper working order. Just as one would take their car to the mechanic when it “just doesn’t sound right” or “doesn’t drive right,” one must also “listen” to the body’s signals of possible problems. Health Screening by Heart Watch IV is an excellent beginning, and will be at Mollie Stone’s in January. Keep reading more
