Sao Paulo Brazil

Last year, Adam and I were lucky enough to travel to São Paulo, Brazil, as part of a work trip. In honor of the world cup, I’m finally posting about it!
I was meeting with colleagues in São Paulo and our friend Sara had lived there for five years and was weeks away from moving back to Austin; we were very lucky to have the opportunity to experience the city while she was still there.
When you visit Brazil, you will eat Pão de Queijo (gluten-free cheese balls made with tapioca flour). …

Flavor Tripping with Miracle Berries on KGSR

A couple weeks ago, I received a direct message on Twitter from Andy Langer, an acquaintance through my good friend Sara B. He asked if I would join him and Bryan Beck on the morning show to talk about food.
I didn’t hesitate before saying yes.
Earlier this week, Adam and I hosted a miracle berry flavor tripping party. It ended up that there were two extra berries so I asked Andy if I could bring them on the air. He was totally into it.
Adam woke up early and we filled up …

Sunflower: You Haunt My Dreams

My dear friend Sara has been living in Sao Paolo, Brasil since this summer. She’s there for a total of two years working as a fifth grade teacher in an international school. She hasn’t yet found good Vietnamese food there so it just made sense that we would eat dinner at one of her favorite spots in Austin last night.
The first time I experienced Sunflower was with Sara and she made it so special. We were with a group of people and Sara expertly ordered for the table. I don’t …

Another Great Vietnamese Option

Normally when I’m in search of passable Vietnamese in Austin I think of three options: Hai Ky, Sunflower, and lulu b’s. Now I’ll add another to the mix — Le Soleil, located up north on Lamar near Rundberg Lane. Rumor has it that Le Soleil was opened by the ex-husband of the owner of Sunflower, after their divorce.

Sara B. introduced me to Sunflower and after tasting their prawns with garlicky noodles, I was hooked. Sara ordered our group a delicious array of her favorite foods there (I can’t remember the …

The Best Gelato in Austin

…is at Teo on 38th Street, no contest. I was first introduced to Teo by Sara Ballon, who turned me on to their refreshing pineapple sorbetto. Since then, I’ve gone back to Teo as often as once a week (or more) to get my fix. Usually, I have a hard time resisting their organic peanut butter and nutella but you can’t really go wrong. Best part, gelato is slightly better for you than ice cream so there’s less guilt!

I was surprised to see that they haven’t won best gelato …
