I’m taking you outside Austin’s city limits to Texan Cafe & Pie Shop in Hutto, Texas. This adorable café serves up comfort food classics, such as Chicken Fried Steak doused in gravy and served with a side of fluffy mashed potatoes. And don’t forget to save room for dessert! The Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie is made with large pieces of pecans and a rich dark chocolate filling, then finished with a crowning dollop of whipped cream. This café’s bestseller, the Coconut Creme Pie, is silky, airy and tastes just like Grandma’s! Lastly, the pretty Peppermint Patty Pie is just like its namesake candy; it’s minty and has a smooth layer of chocolate hiding under the filling. Watch as I give my friends at KEYE CBS Austin the inside scoop on this charming spot. Catch the segment here.
Next, I’m sharing some wine finds that are the perfect bottles to transition into Fall’s back-to-school and tailgate season. First, a beautiful sparkling Brut Rosé from Domaine Ste. Michelle, then the ultimate pizza wine, a Tuscan Chianti and Merlot blend. And because I am enjoying rosé season while it’s still here, one more bottle for good measure: the Amici Côtes de Provence. It’s dry and crisp with a touch of strawberry fruitiness. Lastly, the Ramón Bilbao Gran Reserva is going to be great for your next tailgate. It goes well with anything off the grill, plus it’s a $15 bottle that tastes like it’s $50.
