This weekend on Goodtaste, I’m road-tripping to Lockhart, the ‘Texas Capital of Barbecue.’ You’ll taste tender, bark-bustin’ brisket and some of the biggest, juiciest ribs in the state. Plus[…]
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.
Newly remodeled and more gorgeous than ever before, Steinheimer’s Lounge at the Westin La Cantera resort is the place to be for sampling all varieties of Texas wine – literally!
I love a fast and easy recipe that tastes fabulous—this is it! Perfect for our busy, hectic schedules and just right for our cooler weather.
Boudro’s is a popular holiday dining destination for tourists and locals alike- and for good reason! Boudro’s distinctive menu of Texas and southwestern specialties is just the icing on the cake…especially when it comes to breaking bread aboard one of its private river barges.
By the half, by the sides, by the pound—however you want to fill your backyard grill, Bolner’s has you covered. Grilling expert Joe Doria has some tips on smoking the perfect rack of ribs, juicy chicken or tasty links on the grill every time.
Here’s a totally authentic French dish. Created by a French chef, developed in a French kitchen and now prepared…by you! Taste of France is such an elegant line and is found exclusively at H-E-B and Central Market retailers.
Cristina Peña-Walls may just have the coolest job EVER! She is in charge of global sourcing for H-E-B, which means lots and lots of traveling (she’s been to 55 countries!) and sampling of cuisines from indigenous cultures around the world. Believe me, this working mom has some amazing stories to share.
For a fanciful facelift to your kitchen, it’s all about going green when changing out those old countertops. HomeWerks has some beautiful, eco-friendly designs to help you do just that.
Francesca’s at Sunset is exactly where you want to be once dusk settles in. A wonderfully vibrant atmosphere and spectacular views put this fine dining establishment (housed at the Westin La Cantera resort) on the A-list!
A true hidden gem that literally rests on a hilltop in between San Antonio and Austin, Driftwood Estates Winery has been in the local wine business since the vineyard was first planted in 1998. This property is absolutely incredible!
These summer days are just packed, aren’t they? With endless amounts of errands and running around to do this summer, I find that the best ways to unwind are often the simplest. Case in point: how about an easy dish…one that requires very little preparation but packs a lot of flavor.
It’s not too often that one of the most popular tourist restaurants on the River Walk is also one of the most popular restaurants with locals too. Yes, Boudro’s just keeps on delivering! You have got to try their famous tables side guacamole, their Prickly Pear Margarita and the Texas Martini (jalapeño stuffed olives anyone?), but add another item to that list.
As you know, I love a good glass of wine. But in the summer, sometimes an iced-cold beer is best. Matt Wheeler, the Sommelier at the H-E-B Bunker Hill, has some suggestions on finding a beer to beat the heat. Alamo Golden Ale is a smooth beer.
What a way to enjoy the Texas Hill Country! The fabulous Westin La Cantera recently renovated the resort’s signature bar Steinheimer’s Lounge. And the re-do is worth its weight in gold! There is a very romantic story about the bar’s namesake, Karl Steinheimer. He started out as a pirate. Then, became a miner and he struck gold in Mexico.
