New Whole Foods in San Antonio

Today I took a tour of San Antonio’s newest Whole Foods Market located in the Vineyard Shopping center on Blanco. The store is beautiful and inviting, the layout is very different from the Whole Foods we have at the Quarry Market. Although the store is similar in square footage this new one is easier to…

Dinner at NAO

After a hot summer we are finally being treated to cool mornings and beautiful evenings. This is the best time of year in San Antonio, it’s energizing and inspiring.

Eating (mostly) raw at Legoland

Getting out of a food funk

Beets cafe Austin TX

A few months ago I was in a major food funk. I still wanted to eat my salads, but I didn’t want to make them. I didn’t want to create any new recipes or cook anything in general. I needed a break. I ate a lot of pre washed salads right out of the container…

A day in Austin and a memorial service

This past Monday I attended a memorial service for a colleague of mine who lost his battle with cancer last Thursday. He was a talented gilder, artist and a mentor to many. He will be missed. It was a sad occasion but the service was a beautiful celebration of his life filled with music and…
