Phil & Derek’s

It's my birthday week! *Pauses for enthusiasm*  Everyone knows, the best way to celebrate ME is with food!  For my work birthday lunch we decided to try the Phil & Derek's lunch buffet! Most folks are aware of Phil & Derek's popular brunch buffet, but let me tell you lunch is a great time to go as well.  Follow along for all the tea on my lunch time experience! The Setup Earlier this year Phil and Derek's moved from the Kirby area to a larger space in Midtown with ample parking! This  central location makes it super convenient for a [...]

Protect Yo Stuff!

I have shared before that outside of this blogger world I am an attorney.  During law school, I took ONE Intellectual Property class and decided that was not my thing.   Never did I think some years later I would be removing the cobwebs to try to recall the key things I "learned" in that class.  This blogger world though? It is a giant Intellectual Property minefield where it is important you not only know your rights, but you enforce them as well.  So this is a little blog post about why you should "Protect Yo Stuff!" Let me preface [...]

Dinner at Kitchen 713

Whew! Let's get back to the business of restaurant reviews shall we? While I worked on my event, I still tried some new places that I want to share with you!  Last week, I revisited Kitchen 713 for a tasting of their new menu items including dinner items and cocktails!  Now, I do not typically post on a restaurant several times, but considering that Kitchen 713 is in a new location and my last post was about brunch, I figured this deserved some attention.  For all of the details about setup and location check out my last post.  To get a [...]

BGWB Event Recap!

I am still floating from yesterday! My brunch event, Brunchin' with Black Girls Who Brunch went SO well.  Here is a quick recap.  After much encouragement, on June 10th I hosted my very first brunch event at Harold's in the Heights!  Myself and 39 other ladies met/networked, sipped mimosas, had a photoshoot and dined on good food!  Here are all the dets from the brunch! My Outfit *Puts on fashion blogger hat for two seconds*  I loved my outfit! I stepped out of my norm and went for the princess look. The shirt of course was a Black Girls Who [...]

Houston Birthday Dinner Spots

As a food blogger, there are two questions I get the most 1) where would you recommend that I brunch? and 2) It's my birthday! I need a nice dinner spot. HELP!  Well, I think I have sufficiently answered question number one with countless brunch lists and reviews (Check here for that).  For the second one, I guess my dinner section did not give folks clear options, so here comes the list!  June just so happens to be my birthday month so it is only fitting that I roll out a list of Houston Birthday Dinner spots to host your birthday [...]

Biskit Junkie

I spent last weekend running errands related to my upcoming Brunchin' with Black Girls Who Brunch event! I seriously cannot wait and find a way to bring it up in just about any conversation.  Anywho, with any food blogger you run a few errands and you are quickly plotting on a food stop as well.  Biskit Junkie happened to be in the vicinity and since I'd never been, I quickly decided it was a good idea.  Keeping reading for all of the details of my experience! The Setup So I am going to keep it real here about my experience [...]

Breakfast Brunch Cafe in Cypress

Yes, you read that right, Breakfast Brunch Cafe IN "Cypress."  I actually ventured past the loop to try a brunch/breakfast spot out in the suburb.   Of course there is a backstory!  So I grew up in Cypress which is partly why I have a love/hate relationship with it.  My parents still love it and as retirees spend much of their time trying new spots.  A couple of months ago my parents RAVED to me about a new black owned breakfast spot out by them.   "Oh you must try it!" they told me.  My response of course was, I [...]

Dinner at La Table

Last weekend I met up with my foodie crew for a last minute dinner on a Friday night.  So here is how the planning went. At about noon we realized that we were ALL free that evening and since that never happens we scrambled to find a spot suitable for dinner. I of course advocated for some new spots which turned out to be the "hottest seats in town." We headed to Opentable and searched based on availability (#foodietip).  From there we landed on La Table, the galleria reincarnation that has been around for a few years.  Dinner at La Table [...]

Brunchin’ with Black Girls Who Brunch

I am so excited to share with you all, that I have officially planned my first brunch event, Brunchin' with Black Girls Who Brunch! With a name like Black Girls Who Brunch many folks have assumed that I host events.  The look of disappointment every time I said "no, I just brunch"  got me to thinking.   I put the idea in the back of mind as something I should do sooner than later.   The problem though was planning an event required me to step out of my comfort zone to create an opportunity for BGWB!  Funny thing is [...]

Pistachio Frozen Custard

*Sticks pinky toe outside* it is officially summer in Houston therefore it is appropriate for me to bust out another frozen custard recipe!  After visiting Cafe Azur and Peli Peli I became obsessed with pistachio ice cream! Prior to visiting these local restaurants, I did not trust green ice cream so I avoided it.  I felt like Mikey from the old Life cereal commercials, because after trying it I actually liked it.  When I try random things out, it makes me want to go home and try to make it on my own to suit my tastebuds and pickiness (See here [...]
