Are you Ready for Austin’s Cronut Craze?

I kept hearing about a cronut™ craze going on in New York last spring — with people lining up over two hours before Dominique Ansel’s bakery opened for the chance to try one. Each cronut is $5 with a limit of two per person, and cronut scalpers were waiting in line and then selling their cronuts for up to $100 each. New Yorkers are fuckin’ crazy….
Wait a minute — Austinites are also known to wait in line for their favorite food. I actually drove past Franklin Barbecue at 9 a.m. this morning and …

Austin Food Deals – Freebies and Groceries

I’ve been thinking about all of the great Austin food secrets for a while now — things I have learned over the years from friends, articles, and personal experiences.

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.
