This Week In Houston Food Blogs: Step Up Your Egg Game

Dalida of Brunch & Conversation went to Dosi to try out a tasting menu. She has a full report, including photos of everything she tried. Some dishes were hits and others weren't to her tastes but all were interesting. The soju was good, too.

Easter is almost here and with it comes the tradition of making decorated eggs. Why settle for just colored shells, though, when you can make cute, vibrant deviled eggs? Tag Sale Tastes has a roundup of many ways to step up your hard boiled egg game.

If this isn't the ultimate Southern sandwich, what is? Garden & Gun's Jed Portman shows us the wonder that is the collard green sandwich. It's stuffed between two slices of cornbread because there's nothing more appropriate.

It's not like you need to leave town for great barbecue, but following the siren song of smoke and fire across the state makes for a terrific road trip. The Texas Pit Quest blog details a 12-hour, 400 mile trip that takes the group trip from Tomball to Bryan, Hearne, Beltan, Austin and back again. Check out their barbecue destinations.

Closer to home: among the many fine foods to be found at the Urban Harvest Eastside Farmers Market and the Rice University Farmers Market are Jackie Burdissio's lovely French macarons. Patty and David to try the crunchy, delicate treats in flavors of burnt sugar, pear, tiramisu and pistachio.

Uh, did you know there's a food truck on the west side with several kinds of empanadas? We didn't, either, until we saw Chili Bob's post on the Señor Juan truck. It's currently parking at 10560 Westheimer near W. Sam Houston Parkway.

That's it for this week. Do you know of some Houston-focused blogs that we should be featuring? Leave a comment, contact me by clicking my name at the top of this post or send us an email.
