Three Generations of Family Wedding Portraits

A project that I started, but did not finish, before our wedding last October was to print out family wedding portraits to display on the welcome table. And since my parents and in-laws spent the time to find and scan the photos for me, I wanted to share them here in order of wedding date.
My mom’s parents, Joe and Betty Leitch, were married in St. Catharines, Ontario — Betty’s hometown — on May 24, 1937. Papa and Mama — as they were known to their grandchildren, met in early 1936, …

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 …

Most of you know that Adam and I went to Europe last September on an amazing trip I won from Whole Foods Market after making this video; and that we got engaged in Paris. You also may know that we spent a lot of time last October and November looking at venues. We planned to get married in October 2012.
In the midst of all this excitement, Adam’s 100-year-old Bubbe, who was the last person to leave her 200-person birthday party last summer, started weakening. She was very frail over Thanksgiving, and …

Tasty Touring is Two! Help me Celebrate YOUR Life in Food

Today is exactly two years, 345 posts, 10 Tasty Tours, and over 20 pounds since I started this blog.
Since then, the name has changed (from Food Touring to Tasty Touring) and the design has changed (thanks to Adam Holzband at Talking Machine). However, the reasons I keep posting remains the same: to express myself in an honest and creative way, share my life through the lens of food, and connect with others.
Am I a foodie? Don’t get me started on the negative connotations I have with that word. What I …

Bessie H: Your Life in Food

We saved the best and the most historic interview for last. Regular readers of Tasty Touring might already know and love Adam’s Bubbe from”The Bubbe Chronicles: Eating with Bubbe.” The most common word to describe Bubbe by her family and friends is “Amazing” and that is certainly true. At 99, she reads books by the dozen a month, enjoys spending time with loved ones, and has a great attitude about life in general. I wish for all of you that you are in as great shape as Bubbe and to …
