Morton's The Steakhouse
No reservations needed for a fancy restaurant…instead spend the day being ‘king of the charcoal pit’. So, I’ve got some great ideas to help fulfill the grill master in you to get inspired and fired up come meal time!
The blending of crab and artichokes in a creamy sauce perfectly seasoned with a few dashes of Tabasco and Worcestershire can’t be beat.
As hot as it is outside, how about some beautiful delicious crab cakes? Morton’s crab cakes are incredible, and they are so easy to make. I usually make enough to have leftovers the next day…what a treat.
Morton’s crab cakes are my favorite! The jumbo lumps of crab are delicious and there’s almost no filler – this is a wonderful dish.
I heard a news report recently that said a lot of men on Father’s Day want to spend the day doing what ‘they’ want to do and that their choice is usually an activity that doesn’t involve the entire family… like golf. However, if that special father in your life chooses to dine in style […]
What’s your favorite wine? It’s a question I’m often asked, and the answer is ’what’s your budget?’ There is a correlation between price and quality, BUT there are also some VERY good wines that don’t cost a lot of money…especially wines that work well with our summer heat

Memorial Day weekend and we’re firing up the grill – actually we fire up the grill routinely. I’m a huge red wine fan, so it’s usually a steak of some sort that goes on our grill. We spice them up with a ‘Montreal’ seasoning that you can get at HEB even though my friend, the […]
Morton’s steaks are so good it’s hard to even look at anything else on the menu. So, do the surf and turf…it’s an easy item to split with that special someone.
Okay Moms…time to let them know where you’d like to go out for dinner on your special day. And, if staying home sounds like fun, I’ve gotcha covered there too! First up, Blanca Aldaco’s w/Aldaco’s Stone Oak has a delicious recipe for a Breakfast Chile Relleno that is very easy to make. Click on the […]
After living in SA for 25+ years it’s easy to get complacent about Fiesta. Over the years from time to time, I admit I’ve fallen into that category. I vow to do better! This past week we were shooting a video segment for Boudro’s on the River Walk. (our newest partner on the site). What […]
This is not a column about sour grapes…I have a tremendous respect for my friends and colleagues in the news business, BUT… They work very hard to do a good job. My beef is more at the national level. Since 9-11 and up until I left WOAI last year, viewers constantly told me they don’t […]
