I worked as an investigative reporter, news anchor and even executive producer and host of my own talk show. I was also a finalist in the search for a co-host with Regis Philbin appearing on the show twice when Kathie Lee left (and yes, he’s very nice). I’ve worked with some incredible people. We changed lives… even changed state laws.
Fate has always been my biggest ally. It was fate that got me in the news business, and I believe fate is responsible for bringing my passion for wine, food and travel to fruition. After 17 years at the same television news station, I am venturing off in a new and exciting direction. Now, this fabulous world… what I describe as the ‘real’ world outside the news bubble has unfolded. So c’mon—let’s continue to journey — together we’ll have a great time and discover some great wines and fun people along the way.
If you have a story idea, question about wine, restaurants or something else, please email me and tell me about it.
Fall is finally here even if it doesn’t feel like it outside. Get ready for Texas wine month with daily Texas wine tastings at the Steinheimer’s bar at the Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort. Each day at 5p sommelier Steven Krueger will talk about the wines in Texas making news, plus, you’ll get to try them too. The Texas tastings are $20 for four wines and are open to the public.
And, you’ll want to try the delicious apple empanadas from Brannon’s Café at the Westin. They’re made with our very own S. Texas apples and Nutella…a delightful combo. I have the recipe at Goodtaste.tv….while you’re there, sign up for a chance to win two tickets on Southwest Airlines to New York City-talk about a gourmet getaway.
