Simple, Nutritious Meals Start with Olive Oil


The key to a longer, healthier life may come from cooking with real Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) as often as possible. Con’Olio is a super cool ‘tasting bar’ for premium oils and balsamic vinegars with three locations here in Austin. They source the finest certified EVOO’s from all over the world!



A Summer of Sushi!

Now that the dog days of summer are here sending temperatures into the triple digits, we thought it time for a cool down, so why not get down with some sensational sushi? It truly is an edible art form!



Take On Terry Black’s Barbecue!

We’re eating barbecue for breakfast! Mostly because there’s never a bad time for BBQ. Some of the best spots in the WORLD are located in South Texas, including a brand new location on Barton Springs Road in Austin for Terry Black’s Barbecue…



Gusto’s May Have the Best Deal on Brunch!

It’s the type of neighborhood Italian restaurant that lives up to lofty expectations. Casual, cozy, classy – where the food remains traditional yet imaginative, the ingredients in-season and always locally sourced. Eat well and be one of the family at Gusto’s Italian Kitchen.



Sushi Time on SA Living!

My sushi selections from Sushi Zushi, along with wine pairings from H-E-B this morning on SA Living!



Wine with Delicious Sweets from Walton’s!

If you’ve never been to Walton’s Fancy and Staple on Sixth St., think of it as an old Texas general store but taken up a notch; a blend of nostalgia for the good old days with a taste of the modern as a state-of-the-art bakery and delicatessen.



Superb Summer Beer & Cheese Pairings!

We all know that beer makes a great companion to many foods. The argument could be made that it’s an even better match for cheese than wine! When pairing beer with cheese, you really want the flavors in one to bring out (or enhance) the flavors in the other. And vice versa. Rule #1, however, is to have fun!



Haute Hot Dogs + Cold Sangria for the Fourth!

Fourth of July weekend is only days away! You can almost guarantee hot dogs will be on the menu, but not the same old boring ones. Dress up your dogs for the little ones, along with variations us adults will gobble up too.



Bold Flavors on Café Josie’s Eclectic American Menu

Fabulous farm-to-table cuisine from Café Jose, a restaurant staple that’s weathered the ever-changing landscape of a foodie city on the rise. Talk about keeping things local – this celebrated Clarksville restaurant off W. Sixth sources all of its ingredients within 100 miles of Austin!
