This past weekend, I went to Austin for a conference of bloggers. Yes, bloggers get together and learn things like how to rescue a bad picture, how our stories and recipes help preserve our culture, how to publish a cookbook, how to keep current on Facebook and Twitter and many more topics. And of course we talk about food and went out to eat.
I must say I ate spectacular, Austin is only 3 hours from Houston and we have many friends who are very familiar with the city and gave us excellent recommendations. Here are my faves.
