Visiting Das Peach House in Fredericksburg


On Wednesday, Monique and I took a day trip to the German town of Fredericksburg, TX to visit Fischer and Wieser’s Das Peach HausWe spent the day touring their property, learning about their jams and jellies, sampling everything (oh boy….did we eat a lot!), and wine tasting!

The company is my favorite type: a family-run company that’s been going strong for nearly 50 years. I met Mark Wieser and the whole Fischer family, and they are the sweetest.

They showed us around the property, fed us a farm-to-table lunch (that peach and tomato salad…TAH DIE FOR!), and let us sample wine from nearby vineyards. We also watched a cooking demonstration, followed by 4 more courses of food. The day was not lacking in culinary experiences.

Das Peach Haus is Fischer and Wieser’s location in Fredericksburg, and it would make such a fun destination for a girls getaway, a family weekend trip, or just a day trip like we did! Visitors can stop by to sample the Fischer and Wieser products, taste wine from around the Texas Hill Country, enjoy the back porch overlooking a pond and pine trees, or take a cooking class.

Fischer and Wieser recently launched their Culinary Adventure Cooking School, where you can sign up for a cooking class for 8 to 24 people. John DeMers leads the classes, and he is a hoot and a half. I mean it. I was laughing so hard the whole time he was cooking!

Monique and I drove back to Austin on Wednesday evening, both of us so full from the abundance of food throughout the day. I came home with a basket full of goodies, so I might show you a few recipes I’ve been making with their products.

At the end of the day they asked us if we wanted to grab any product from their shelf to bring home, and I knew exactly what I wanted: the four star black raspberry chipotle sauce.  Yuuuummmm. Y’all, I can’t wait to make something delicious with this!

Thanks for your hospitality, Fischer and Wieser!

Happiest weekend, friends! My sister is coming in town, so I’ll be hanging out with her. I’ve got lots of fun Austin-y things planned…

Need Beer And Wifi In Austin? Here’s Where To Go


Need Wifi AND Beer in Austin?Need Wifi AND Beer in Austin? Here's Where To Go!

It’s 2017, and we’re no longer moderately surprised when someone says, “I started my own company and I’m an independent worker.” In fact, it seems that it’s harder to find someone who fits the 9-5 mold than it is to find a entrepreneur or small business owner.

This means when the clock strikes 5:00, the day isn’t over…. Running your own company often means working until 9, 10, maybe midnight? And while the idea of working in a charming coffee shop at 9 am sounds nice, at 9 pm you want a different vibe. When you need an IPA to go along with your wifi, I’ve got you covered! Read More
