I stopped in at H-E-B Bunker Hill to visit with Sean Ballesteros, the resident wine manager and beer expert to talk gluten-free beer — and brands (even some local) you should keep an eye out for!
Easy and healthy! Two words I can agree on when it comes to dinner in a pinch. This chicken cacciatore is beautiful and delicious…pair it with a good glass of red wine after a hard day’s work! You only need three things to make this dish come alive…
There’s a lot to be excited about with this latest recipe from H-E-B’s Cooking Connections. I’m on a mission, as of late, to eat healthier without sacrificing on taste. This beautiful Cedar Smoked Salmon filet is super easy to cook up, and has a great number of health benefits (it’s diabetic friendly)!
Even us diehard red wine fans needs a good white to balance things out once in a while! Summertime in South Texas means it’s HOT. White wines with high acidity equal good refreshers from the unforgiving Sun.
Serve it chilled for a steamy, Summer day or have it hot for that fiery flavor, Cooking Connections has a pre-cooked shrimp ceviche that’s ready in mere moments if you play your cards right
It’s one of my favorite wines to drink this time of year, and never too expensive to enjoy. A good rosé is key! Plus, Father’s Day is coming up…here are three distinct offerings you can find at most H-E-Bs:
My sommelier Matt didn’t have to sell me on the 12 pack offered by Full Sail of their Session Lager. In fact, it’s already been one of my ‘Beers of the Month’ here on Goodtaste! It’s an All-American lager; blonde and super smooth. Expect the price point on these to be between $11-13 for the pack.
Cheers to a super food snack that’s super healthy and terrifically tasty! It takes three to tango in this mix; blanched broccoli and edamame join fresh avocado for what Cooking Connections dubs as ‘Edamame Broccomoli’.
If you’re looking to lighten up your fare for the Spring time, you’re in luck. I stopped by H-E-B’s Montrose Market location for a powwow with Chef Amy in Cooking Connections. We talked warm weather wine and fresh filets, plus great a way to cook with each!
The first time I met Crossings winemaker Matt Mitchell his wines were the new kids on the block in Texas…one of the rising stars from New Zealand. Now, fast forward a few years and you’ll find The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc on numerous restaurant menus. Chances are you’ll also find it at your H-E-B!
When you find a particular wine you really love, it’s always a treat find a meal to compliment the wine — both taste better! Plus, when you can whip up that meal in no time, it’s a win-win all around. That’s exactly what you’ll find here — two very easy fabulous meals with some wonderful wines to pair them with….
It was at a grand oyster and wine tasting in Houston that I got a chance to pair one of my all time favorite Sauv Blancs – Girard Sauvignon Blanc – with some re-discovered oysters from a centuries old reef in Galveston Bay.
Pinot Grigio is the ‘it’ wine right now…perfect for our warm weather and our crawfish cravings! Actually, Pinot Grigio pairs with all kinds of food—chicken, fish, pizza…you name it! If the Italians drink it all year round, chances are we can too.
