One of my favorite bloggers at ActiveRain is Dorie Dillard in Austin, TX. She helps to keep us informed on one of my favorite Texas cities and its drive to "Keep Austin Weird."
If you're new to her blog there are certain posts that I love and that you can count on but my absolute favorite is the "Foodie" Friday posts. We Texans love our food and no place (except Houston!) does it better than Austin. Each Friday, Dorie shares with us a new or favorite Austin area restaurant.
Now Dorie doesn't stop with the basic facts, she includes a sample of the menu, history of the establishment, and often will include a video. When my little cousin and her husband moved to Austin, I sent her Dorie's Foodie Friday posts as well as her posts on events in Austin. And, when they decided it was time to buy, Dorie made sure that they were taken care of. Looking for more oomph in your blog posts? I'd suggest taking a look at Dorie's.

SALA AND BETTY https://www.salaandbettyatx.com/
Local Austin chef and restaurateur Teresa Wilson wanted a place where diners can get well-executed, wholesome food that is simple yet more sophisticated than a typical casual restaurant. Teresa realizes that we live in a world where people have busy schedules and may not have the time to cook for themselves or their families. She also realized that there really wasn't a place where you could get well-prepared and wholesome foods ready to go for the public. Through many years of experience in the restaurant industry, Teresa has refined her cooking skills through various styles, flavors and cuisines.
