Sandra Bullock is a Hottie and Owns Two Restaurants to Boot

I love Sandra Bullock. If there was a woman that I could choose to settle down with and make babies with, it would be Sandra Bullock. She is gorgeous and timeless. No matter what day of the week it is she looks absolutely flawless. She speaks two languages fluently, has the cutest little boy, and is an Academy-Award winning actress. She is a hottie with a body and I happen to live in the city where she owns Bess Bistro and Walton’s Fancy and Staple.

Now I have wanted to eat at both establishments since I arrived in Austin two years ago, but I am absolutely terrified at the small possibility that she may happen to be there when I go. Like I said before, I would bend down on one knee, ask … Read More »

As Seen on TV: Hillbilly Hot Dogs

Last night I watched an old episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives where Guy Fieri showcased three family-friendly restaurants. Needless to say my salivary glands went into overdrive and I found myself drooling all over my pillow at the thought of chowing down on some of those tasty treats. Today I would like to feature one of those restaurants simply because they serve the biggest hamburger and hotdog I have ever seen in my life. What can I say? I’m easily impressed!

Deleyla Dreams of Jiro’s Sushi

If you haven’t had the opportunity to watch Jiro Dreams of Sushi, a 2011 documentary directed by David Gelb, then it is time to put that Netflix subscription of yours to use. The film is centered around 85-year-old Jiro Ono, the owner of three-star Michelin award winning sushi restaurant Sukiyabashi Jiro . It follows Jiro as he dedicates every waking moment of his life to create and perfect some of the most beautiful and enticing pieces of sushi that anyone would give their left hand to devour (seriously, I would give my left hand). It is a masterfully done film and has given me a new-found appreciation for the dedication and workmanship that goes into a master chef’s craft.
