SAN ANTONIO – Today at 1 p.m., we’re celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with one of our favorite people! Plus, where you can go to see a Reba McEntire corn maze, fall treats, fried chicken and a French-fusion spot to try.

Our friend, Gerardo Carvajal with La Familia Cortez Restaurants, joins us to make an authentic Hispanic Heritage dish today, chiles en nogada. You can find this dish and other authentic favorites at Mi Familia at The Rim. Don’t forget their comedy nights on Wednesdays!

Jen takes us to a family-friendly fall spot in the Texas Hill Country that has a Reba McEntire corn maze! Jenschke Orchards also has a pumpkin patch, barbecue and other family fun. They open today, just in time for some weekend fun.

Fancy chicken and fine wine? Don’t mind if we do! The Birdhouse in New Braunfels is serving up some mouth-watering soul food you don’t want to miss.

It’s a foodie Friday because we continue our culinary features with Della Doce Bakery. We’ll taste their pumpkin whoopie pies and cinnamon rolls. There’s a special deal for the first five people to order - get 2 whoopie pies for free!

David Elder from Texas Eats takes us to a French-fusion spot north of downtown, Julia’s Bistro.

Also, The Big Give is happening next Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 20 and 21! Don’t miss some worthy local nonprofits that need your help. We have a preview.
