Food, foodie, foodies, nom.

I have ALWAYS been a taco fan, but not always a Taco Cabana fan. I honestly grew up thinking Taco Cabana was Taco Bell. I didn't learn the difference until I went off to college. I was out late one night with friends when someone said they wanted some bean and cheese tacos from Taco C. I was super intrigued and wanted to know what this Taco C was all about. 
I love pasta and have been really sad not eating it as often as I'd like. I had heard of Spaghetti Squash, but I was super pessimistic about it. It turns out that I was SUPER wrong and that it is a really great alternative to pasta. I might even like it better than pasta. With Thanksgiving coming up in a couple of weeks, I wanted to find a recipe that I could use that I wouldn't regret eating afterward. My Spaghetti Squash Alfredo with Media Crema recipe will be something I take to all the Thanksgiving potlucks I have coming up.
I have SO MANY amazing family and friends in my life. And everyone that I personally know has been super positive throughout this whole mess and they have shown me what it really means to be #TexasStrong. I wanted to come up with a cocktail recipe that is super fast and easy to make in honor of all the strong people in my life. It's about time we have a drink before we move on to rebuild homes and lives. I am SUPER EXCITED to be featuring Agavero Orange on the blog today! As many of you know, my Mexican family is super into tequila. Me, not so much. But, when I pair great tequila with Agavero Orange, I love it!
Kerbey Lane Cafe releases three seasonal menus—summer, fall, and spring—each year to celebrate the flavors of the season and provide fresh, fun dishes for their guests to enjoy. I attended a blogger preview last night with the fiance and sampled the summer menu.
The silky-smooth sauce for this dish — made with sautéed garlic, Mountain High Yoghurt, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper — comes together in under thirty minutes. It's simple, but don't let that fool you into thinking it's not flavorful!
Snap Kitchen defies the misconception that healthy foods can’t also be delicious. With a chef driven menu, Snap Kitchen offers a variety of prepared meals in three different portions sizes. Orange for small, green for medium, and black for large or one size options. The meals also indicate whether they are vegan, gluten free, carb conscious, sodium conscious, Paleo and other dietary preferences. There is never a bad choice to make and I love the variety and their adventurous, creative menu. If you couldn't already tell, I love Snap Kitchen.
Every now and then I get really homesick. When I first moved to Austin from Del Rio, TX I would go home several times a month. It was hard for me to let go and to move on. That...
From a 1-10, Don Chelada comes in at a 8.5 on my Michelada Mix scale. Putting them in first place compared to all others I have tried. I give Don Chelada The Nueva Latina stamp of approval!! And I hope you all have a chance to try this great product! Thanks so so much to Don Chelada for the opportunity to try out your Michelada Cups, Powder Mix and Liquid Mix!
This past summer I was really excited to take my sister to experience the amazingness that is Hay Elotes!! I ordered a Chamoyada and she ordered a Mangonada, a specialty drink made of blended mango and liquid chamoy.. We both ordered their signature corn in cup with lime and chile. I think it's safe to say that we will be going together a lot once she moves to Austin starting in the fall.
I am extremely picky when it comes to Mexican food. When I first heard of Joe's from a friend, I am not gonna lie, I was thinking, "You are full of s***!" The thing is that ever since I came to Austin I hadn't found a place that truly, really, sincerely reminded me of the food from back home. There are AMAZING places in and around town, but most of them have one or two things on the menu that I actually love.
