Blogger and Recipe Developer at What Jew Wanna Eat
Introduction
I am a food writer from Austin, Texas who writes the blog What Jew Wanna Eat. WJWE is your source for Jewish home cooking - armed with my Bubbe's recipes and lots of shmaltz, I am on a quest to try one recipe a week, with my own personal twist on each! Think Mexican Potato Latkes or Nutella Rugelach for starters!

I also do weekly cooking demo videos on Google+, which you can watch replays of on my YouTube Channel.  Follow me for cooking videos and tasty foodie recipes and photos. You can also follow WJWE on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest. No matter your religion, I hope you enjoy these tasty recipes. I know Jew will!

Do you ever have extra bagels just lying around? Yeah, me neither. So go buy a new bagel and make this salad with lox, bagel croutons and an everything bagel dressing! Yesss.

People make a big ''dill'' out of nonsense and make ''dough'' for it. That's media!

I love cookies as much as the next girl, but let's not forget about the other Purim component. The booze! Apricot Infused Bourbon with a Poppy Seed rim has all the flavors of a hamantaschen, but will get you drunk.

If you are into frat boys and cheap drinks (and who isn't really) this is your bar! Main downfall is that the bathrooms are disgusting- even when we would go there early, they are still a mess. It's almost as if they do it on purpose! Almost...

Awesome place to see live music in Austin- not a bad seat in the house, and they get so many great performers here. Plus the sound is super clear and a perfect volume. We saw Mumford & Sons and it was pretty much my favorite concert ever!

Okay so this place is totally run down but it is too fun! BYOB and mini golf in one spot? Sold. The perfect 1st date spot- as long as you don't beat your date too badly like I seem to always do. There is an easy course and a harder one, which is nice. Just make sure to bring cash!

This place does an excellent job- they got a stain out of my dress that no one else could- and are done when they say they will be done. So bonus points for quick service. But they are SOO expensive. I used them when they were right next door to my work, but would definitely not go out of my way.

I always have my visiting friends stay here when they come visit Austin! The downtown location can't be beat, the service is great, and the rooftop pool is a huge bonus. If you want peace and quiet, I don't suggest staying here. But if you are in town with a dozen or two of your closest bachelor party friends, welcome!

Lambert's has decent BBQ- my brisket was a little fatty for my taste, but the sides were delicious! The Jalapeño & Garlic Roasted Broccoli and Brussels Sprouts were my favorites. Overall, the decor was nice, service was eh and a little over priced for the quality.

Their coffee is AWESOME. I like my coffee strong- and theirs will grow some hair on your chest. Parking can be a bit of a pain, but I like to ride my bike over and earn my treat. Great service too!
