Tasty Tuesdays: Austin’s Best Cupcake

I was honored to be a judge a couple weeks ago in Jennie Chen’s Cupcake Smackdown at One 2 One bar in downtown Austin and have been meaning to write about the event since then. Below is a cute photo taken by a Statesman A-List photographer of Devrah Otten, winner of the tasting competition portion of That Takes The Cake in 2008 and 2009, me, Jennie, and Natanya Anderson, Fete and Feast blogger and Next Food Network Star hopeful.
I’m not going to get into the results here but some …

Last-Minute Grocery Store Blues

Last night, Adam and I began putting together dinner at around 8 p.m. I had picked up tilapia and these huge beautiful artichokes at Whole Foods at lunch yesterday. We decided to make oven-roasted artichokes and mango salsa with sauteed fish. We were missing a few simple ingredients — limes and cilantro for the salsa, lemons for the artichokes.
I volunteered to run out to the store. Adam lives just north of the Mueller development in East Austin and the closest stores to his house are Randalls and Casa Grande. Normally, …

Showing Love for Cupid’s Hot Dogs (L.A.)

I’m pleased to introduce you to Lenny H., who submitted the post below on Cupid’s Hot Dogs via an e-mail to his son (and my boyfriend), Adam, who forwarded it on to me. After last week’s KGSR radio show and blog post on Frank, a fancy hot dog restaurant and bar in downtown Austin, both Lenny and Adam’s cousin Evan wanted to spread the Cupid’s gospel. Lenny grew up in the Los Angeles area and Evan still lives there. Take it away, Lenny:

We Ate, We Ate, We Biked. We Ate More.

The Tasty Touring South Austin Food Trailer Tour was over a week ago and Adam’s dad Lenny has been clamoring (or so I’m told) for a recap on the blog.
This is for you, Lenny.
Like the East Austin Taco Tour the month before, the weather played a large role. Instead of torrential rains, it was hot, Africa hot, that morning. Normally, I like the comfort of my car and it’s lovely air conditioning during the summer months in Austin. As tour planner, I felt it was only fair that I brave …

Tasty Touring on YouTube

Now that I’m the proud owner of an iPhone 3GS (aka a blogger’s best friend), I had to try the video function as soon as possible. On Friday, Adam and I picked up Katie and I interviewed them about cajun cuisine and seafood in Austin. On Sunday, I began interviewing folks during the biweekly Sno Cone Club “meeting” at Casey’s on 51st. You can check out new videos anytime on www.tastytouring.com. Here’s one example:

What kinds of video would you like to see on Tasty Touring in the future? I’m thinking …
