Our Texas Hill Country Wedding

For me, really feeling like a truly married person has been a gradual process over a year and a half period. Adam and I got engaged in Paris on Sept. 25, 2011, got legally married in Houston in a hastily planned ceremony on Dec. 25, 2011 (Christmas Day), and co-hosted a second wedding ceremony and celebration in Austin on Oct. 6, 2012. Last week, I officially changed my name to Jodi Bart Holzband on my driver’s license, and today I’m finally sharing some of my favorite moments from our Hill …

Cookbook Love from DC to Austin

What better way than food to share our love for one another? My dear friend Emily of Wild and Crazy Pearl combined her love of food and photography to put together, along with writer Beth Kanter, Washington, DC Chef’s Table: Extraordinary Recipes from the Nation’s Capital.
It’s a beautiful book, and Emily spent much of 2012 photographing each and every image that appears in it (other than her head shot of course), at visits to Washington, DC restaurants either early in the morning, during lunch, and after work, while still managing to excel …

After brunch, I took a nap while Adam and Emily went to Central …

Chocolate Covered Caramel Matzo, AKA Matzo Crack

It’s Passover and that means it’s time for my annual tradition of making matzo crack for the seder. Two years ago, I posted a recipe from The Mensch Chef. This year, I decided to make the version from David Lebovitz with coaching from Emily G. of Wild and Crazy Pearl.
Whether you spell it matzo, matzah, or matzoh — when you cover it with caramel, chocolate, and other goodies, it’s just plain delicious. It’s called crack because you crack the matzo squares into pieces and also because when you try some, …

More Goodness from NYC Food Trucks

While my previous post focused on food trucks that were parked on weekdays during lunchtime on Park between 26 and 27, I’ll cover some other food trucks around the great metropolis known as New York in this one.
The day I met Perry of New York Street Food at Wafel & Dinges (see previous post if you missed it), Adam and our friend Josh met us, and Perry recommended that we walk over to the Desi Truck parked at 27th and 5th Avenue since they were in the mood for Indian …
