NEW EPISODE: Come Away with Us to the Texas Coast

Last year the Gulf Coast was devastated by Hurricane Harvey. In this week’s new episode of Goodtaste, we’re heading to Port Aransas to visit some of the coastal restaurants that were affected by the storm […]

Join Me at the Southern Living Home Showcase!

  It’s hard to believe that it was just a little over a year ago when Houston was devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Many locals lost their homes and all of their possessions because of the horrific flooding. Despite the massive impact of the storm, Houston is recovering and Southern Living Magazine is helping our city […]

Tanji Talks: Texas ‘Cue, Cabs & More

You can’t talk about Texas without mentioning barbecue. It’s part of our state’s DNA. We are fiercely proud of our smoke. My job gives me the opportunity to travel across the state and try the best of the best, hear the stories behind these passion projects and dig into some pretty epic barbecue. When I’m […]

Picosos’ Stuffed Deep-Fried Avocados

Try these over-the-top, cheesy, fried avocados from Picoso’s Mexican Kitchen in Lubbock. Before hitting the hot oil, they are coated in cheese and breadcrumbs, creating a crispy, gooey crust. Here, we stuff them with shredded chicken, but you can also top with grilled shrimp, sliced steak, or peppers and black beans for a vegetarian alternative.

Steak 48 Corn Crème Brûlée

This decadent side dish from Steak 48 in Houston is a clever mash-up of silky crème brûlée and a classic corn pudding. If you can, make this dish in the fall when fresh corn is still in season – we promise you’ll taste the difference.

My Top 5 Seafood Spots

Blessed with the Gulf Coast, Texas has access to some of the freshest seafood in the country. The food in this state is truly a melting pot of flavors: influence from our next-door neighbors in Cajun country like the famous seafood boil and a touch of heat and acidity from the food of Mexico like […]

It’s Tailgate Season, Texas!

Smear on that face paint, slide the grill into the back of your car and get out those folding chairs because it’s tailgating season, folks! […]

My 5 All-Time Favorite Texas Cafés

Laid back casual dining is always my go-to when I’m on the road, but you won’t find me sacrificing good food for speed and convenience. With so many great cafes and small local businesses serving fresh sandwiches, fluffy pancakes and towering burgers, fast food chains just don’t stack up. In celebration of the forthcoming Season […]

Tanji Talks: Texan Cafe and Pie Shop

I’m taking you outside Austin’s city limits to a cute cafe in Hutto. Texan Cafe & Pie Shop is serving up comfort food for lunch and dinner that will leave you feeling all […]

7 Must-Visit Barbecue Spots

As Texans, we’ll admit that we can be overly proud of things like our state size and our sports teams, but I think we can all agree that we serve up some pretty mean barbecue. Juicy, slow-smoked brisket, tender ribs slathered in sauce, and more cheesy, buttery sides than you can imagine. In celebration of […]

Tanji Talks Texas Flavors: Seafood Meets Wine Pairings

It’s still over a hundred degrees here in Texas, and I don’t know about you but I’m craving the crisp, refreshing flavors of seafood paired with white wines. Nothing screams end-of-summer or Texas more than fresh Ahi tuna stacks with jalapeños or Cajun spices paired with a glass of wine.   I’m picking a couple […]

Southwest Texas Flavor

Everywhere I go, I hear praises of all the great things San Antonio is doing in the food scene. It has become quite the culinary center. When you’re looking for something quick, fresh and easy in the Alamo City check out The Station Cafe located in the historic King William District and Southtown.
