Sylvia O: Questions on Your Life in Food

As you may know if you have been keeping tabs, I started a series called “Questions on Your Life in Food” last week with my family and am continuing this week with Adam’s family.
We recently spent a weekend in Tulsa, OK with his maternal grandmother, Sylvia (AKA Grandma), where I interviewed her about some of these questions. Others, she answered in an e-mail until she had to sign off to head out to her poker game with the ladies.
Sylvia O. – Born in 1922 (mother of Paula, grandmother of Adam)

Tasty Tuesdays: Austin’s Best, Oldest, Restaurants

This past weekend, Adam and I visited his grandmother Sylvia in Tulsa, Oklahoma. One of the things I loved most about the trip was hearing more about Adam’s family history — and eating at places that Sylvia had loved for years. This included Goldie’s Patio (1961) and Braum’s Ice Cream (1968). We also visited Hideaway (1957), a childhood favorite of Apron Adventures‘ Lindsay.
All of that vintage eating activity made me think about restaurants in Austin that have stood the test of time. The ones that popped into my head include Scholz Garden …

Combining two of my favorite things – yoga and chocolate – sounded like heaven to me. Betsy read about David Romanelli, a yoga teacher that started offering classes combining yoga and food, in a New York Times article. She was inspired and asked him if he would come to Austin and teach a class.

It was a …

Daily Texan on Austin Food Bloggers

I was honored when a writer for the Daily Texan, the student newspaper for the University of Texas, contacted me for a story they were doing on local food bloggers. The story ran yesterday in Longhorn Life, an “Advertising Supplement of the Daily Texan.” Not sure how Tasty Touring and Rebeccamendations ended up in there since we didn’t pay for the articles but I’m not going to complain!
Read on for our mind-blowing insights about Austin’s best cuisine, favorite dish (I don’t actually have one but picked a past obsession), favorite …

Take your Veggies to the Chevy

I generally try not to mix business with pleasure on this blog, and most of my business doesn’t happen in Austin. It generally takes place on an hour-long conference call  with clients in other time zones, via e-mail chains, and at occasional out-of-town meetings.
The weekend before last, I happily mixed the two parts of my life on a road trip from Capitol Chevrolet down to the Pearl Farmer’s Market in San Antonio with a group of local food bloggers. Below is a slightly edited version of a blog I wrote …
