We’re Stuck on these Fab Fiesta Skewers!


Relish three recipes “on a stick” (i.e. your basic bamboo skewer) I asked my dedicated dietitian, Rosie Benner, to put together in honor of Fiesta. All of them are amazing — and made for casual nibbling!



Guava-Glazed Spare Ribs Sing with Sangria

Fire up the grill and grab a glass! The rest of the country is discovering what we’ve all known in Texas for years–Sangria is good stuff, and it pairs great with anything from the grill. Up until now, I’ve always made my own Sangria from leftover wine and whatever fruit was in the refrigerator. Those days are over!



The Art of Charcuterie with Chef Brian Polcyn

In the world of cooking, charcuterie is in a class by itself. Smoked meat, sausages and even duck confit are now common items on many restaurant menus, and it’s largely due to this man: Chef Brian Polcyn. He’s the co-author of Charcuterie and Salmuni, two celebrated cookbooks on the craft of salting, smoking and curing — and he’s come to Sysco!



Gush Over This Grilled Red Snapper!

Lighter meals made in a pinch…summer just got a little simpler!

This is a fun, fresh fish dish — especially when you throw the finished product in a tortilla!



This Guava Glazed Beer Can Chicken is Gorgeous!

Fire up the grill – it’s about that time! Registered dietitian and chef, Rosie Benner, makes use of just a few easy ingredients, including the beer you’re enjoying, to produce a charred chicken of charitable proportions, drenched in a homemade guava orange juice reduction…one tropical blend that’s simply spectacular.

Pappas Bros. Steakhouse - steak

Pappas Bros. take healthy steaks To ‘Heart’

Akaushi prime beef by HeartBrand Beef is being called “life changing” for a reason. The highly marbled cuts have a delicious, rich buttery taste due to the amount of oleic acid present in them. And there are heart benefits to Akaushi as well!


H-E-B sliders

Burgers and soppin’ sauce

For more tasty burger ideas from your HEB in Houston….check these out! Even slider versions for a limited time. The secret to these delish burgers is the sauce! Ever heard of ‘Soppin’ Sauce’ ?

May '11 - Heartbrand Beef - Seeing is believing!

Seeing is believing!

Seeing is believing! Sure Heartbrand is lower in cholesterol, lower in saturated fats than other domestic beef, but when you see the side by side comparison, it’s dramatic! The fat composition of Heartbrand Akaushi is dramatically different than other commercial beef


April '10 - Bolner's - Fiesta Cabrito

The Ultimate Fiesta Food – Grilled Cabrito

A cabrito guisada taco is like no other….the meat is incredibly tender, juicy and the flavors are incredible. The key to good cabrito is the grilling process. It’s not difficult and the end result well worth it.
