Change Up Grilled Chicken with Chimichurri!

Bring on the spice! Just imagine…the taste of Argentina in your own backyard this tailgate season. We’re at the H-E-B Montrose Market working with one of the most buzzable spices right now – Chimichurri.



Autumn-Ready Reds from H-E-B

Tailgate season has arrived, and these spirited reds are in on the festivities. No matter how darn hot it may get in South Texas, the number #1 best selling wine across the board is still domestic red wine. Here are a few special selections to try as we head into fall…



A Summer of Sushi!

All Eyes on These Local Iced Coffees!

Java lovers may currently find themselves rethinking the texture and temperature of that daily cup of Joe. Hot coffee still hits the spot first thing in the AM, but if you’re a multi-cup-a-day drinker and searching for variety, let’s CHILL!

New Rosés that Rock for Summer!

More options for one of my favorite summer varietals are in at the H-E-B Montrose Market. One of the biggest misconceptions I hear about rosés is that they’re all too sweet. Not true! For red fans who want a smooth transition to white – reach for rosé!

A Glass & Chat with NY Times Wine Critic Eric Asimov

It was through my love affair with the dining and travel section of the New York Times that I came to be familiar with the work of their wine critic, Eric Asimov.

Anytime I have a nutrition question or want something magnificent created, I call on my go-to dietitian Rosie Benner. Here we’ve upped the ante on these are rich, homestyle treats, marrying non-traditional flavors like Strawberry Chipotle, Spicy Peanut Butter and Coconut Chocolate Ganache.
