One Last Summer Fiesta on SA Living


School starts back in just a few weeks – can you believe it! For the perfect summer send-off, I brought along cuisine from two local Mexican food essentials to SA Living. We paired each dish with festive wines from H-E-B. Feel free to indulge in one last hurrah before school starts!



It’s Patio Time at The Grove!

With a new downtown location now open off of W. Sixth St., there’s no better time to kick back at The Grove. This impressive wine bar and eclectic New American kitchen has a diverse menu. As long as it’s fresh, in season and of a certain quality, you may find it here!



ANY Day for Rosé!

One of my very favorite wine varietals is also one of the most misunderstood… rosés! Classic rosé wines are dry and crisp…not sweet. They’re also generally VERY inexpensive, plus a low alcohol content makes them a perfect summer ‘porch’ wine…



Fabulous Flavor from Fire & Ice Pizza Bar!

Wake up with delicious hand-tossed pizza – we won’t tell! Fire & Ice Pizza Bar has a modern twist on the classic cuisine, and they’re known for speed. Mouthwatering artisanal pizza in less than 5 minutes from a Le Cordon Bleu chef!



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!



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!



Father’s Day Foodie Finds!

Great gift ideas for Dad as seen on Great Day Houston! This includes a customizable wine label from Josh Cellars – a tribute to Dad. Keep checking back on Goodtaste.tv for more ideas, tips and treats for him as we get closer to Father’s Day…



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.
