Family BBQ

Having my sister around is a perfect excuse to get together with even more family! A first cousin, once removed and her husband live on the opposite end of Austin from us, and another first cousin twice removed recently moved here. Got that? No? Neither did I. Here’s a chart: Whatever their relation to us,Continue reading “Family BBQ”

Tomato Recipe #3

I was wandering the internets looking for something make using my tomatoes. Nothing too complex or that uses meat. Something that would fill me up and be delicious. I came upon a tomato, basil and caramel used onion Quiche that I decided to go with. You can find it here: https://themodernproper.com/tomato-basil-and-caramelized-onion-quiche I opted to goContinue reading “Tomato Recipe #3”

Tomatoe Recipe #2

Ok, to be fair, this isn’t a recipe. It’s not complicated nor does it use a lot of ingredients. It’s basically just a Caprese salad. Instead of Mozzarella I used Burrata, which is almost like Mozzarella but creamier on the inside. I then drizzled some Balsamic Reduction on top and called it a day. WhenContinue reading “Tomatoe Recipe #2”

Stuffed Mushrooms

I am one lucky girl. I will be sitting on the couch with my husband when he starts furiously googling and then tells me he is going to cook me something. He usually asks if that is ok. Ummmm, yeah it is! Last night he got inspired and decided to use the portobello mushrooms IContinue reading “Stuffed Mushrooms”

Tillie’s

Originally for my mother’s birthday we were going to take her to a restaurant called Tillie’s. We ended up rescheduling because the opera postponed due to rain, but it was totally worth it! Tillie’s is down in an area called Dripping Springs, about 45 minutes south of downtown Austin but a world away. It feelsContinue reading “Tillie’s”

Uchi

Uchi is one of the best restaurants in Austin, Texas. It was the place that put food on the map here. After Uchi came, other good restaurants followed. Despite living here about 8 years, tonight was my first time eating at Uchi. SO GOOD. Sam and I had been to Uchiko, it’s sister restaurant beforeContinue reading “Uchi”

Sufganiyot

It’s a mouthful to say and delicious to eat! They are Israeli donuts. Although I had always heard of making donuts as a tradition for Hanukkah I had never tried it myself. They are deep fried just like latkes ( potato pancakes) to represent the miracle of a small container of oil lasting 8 days,Continue reading “Sufganiyot”
