Super Recipes from HEB

First things first — check out the HEB “Meal Deal” special Super Bowl Sunday. It features “HEB wings” and “Lil’ Smokies,” perfect for the BIG GAME!!

sb_spread_mediumThanks to Chef Will and the entire HEB crew for sponsoring the show and bringing all that food.  This is no day to debate your diet, people.  Forget about it.  Just take realize you’re stepping back a couple days, smile, and consciously pig out!  But anyway, thanks to our production crew, too,  for all their hard work and extra effort.  Setting up and lighting two outdoor sets in a day ain’t a walk in the park.  Okay, like a walk in the park, in the cold wind, holding a floor lamp, with a tool in your teeth, and 20 lbs. of wires in your other hand.  Now that’s how you burn off those Super Bowl Calories!!

  1. I am trying to find the Cookwell Banana’s Foster Sauce – to make the trifle from one of your January 2009 shows.
    I have called Central Market and they do not have it and tried the new HEB on the Katy Freeway and they also do not have. Do you know what HEB would carry it?

  2. I am looking for a recipe to make a great dish of mash potatoes I hope you could help me find one

    Thank you

  3. I am trying to find the Cookwell Banana’s Foster Sauce – to make the banana pudding from one of your stores.
    I am in Austin, Tx. Do you know what HEB would carry it?

  4. I want to be able to order Roberts reserve and Cookwell products to be shipped to my mountain home in cool. Because I cannot take on the plane. Do they have an online ordering system?
