No Churn Caramel Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Yes this is another ice cream recipe because I am OBSESSED with making ice cream okay?   Everyone will deal! This one is a little different though.  I decided to step away from my typical ice cream recipes  that require the Kitchen Aid ice cream attachment and create a no churn recipe.  Basically, you make it, freeze it and serve! It takes NO time.   For my first attempt, I went for a recipe that is similar to the Talenti Caramel Crunch that I love, and created a No Churn Caramel Chocolate Chip Ice Cream! No Churn Caramel Chocolate Chip Ice Cream [...]

Travel Guides Roundup

So I like to travel, shocking I know!  For me, planning a trip can take months.  After I have scored my flight, I begin in-depth research about the new place I am going.  Most folks go to your big travel websites like Trip Advisor for reviews and guidance. I do too, because they are very helpful, but my favorite source of travel advice? Other bloggers! I honestly spend more time now searching Pinterest and my friends' blogs looking for information for my next trip.  I decided to share the wealth and drop a Travel Guides Roundup featuring my fellow Houston [...]

Whipped Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

For those who follow me on Instagram, you may have been watching my chocolate cake progress over the last few months! I have used a few Pinterest recipes for the chocolate cake and they have all turned out well.  For the buttercream and ganache though, I keep toying with it to get the flavor and consistencies I like!  The ganache is still a work in process because it's not dripping the way I want it to *heavy sighs*.  This go around, I made a cake for my sister's birthday and it was a beauty plus the chocolate buttercream came out PERFECT.

Black Owned Brunchin’

So when I travel there are a few musts for me when it comes to food.  First, I want to stick to locally owned spots that reflect the local cuisine and culture.  Next, I gotssss to find a brunch spot.  The reason there is obvious!  Beyond that though, I also really like supporting black owned businesses!  While thinking about these three things, I decided to put together a list of black owned brunch spots around the country!  I reached out to my vast blogger circle and friends for their advice and posts so that we can spread some love via Black [...]

It’s Not Delivery, It’s Brunch at Home!

So technically it IS delivery, but I loved this title so I had to go with it!  Brunch is very much a social experience. You grab your crew and catch up on the good gossip around a carafe of mimosas.  I completely get that, but some days I just want the food without the fluff.   Basically send me the chicken and waffles to my door, so I do not have to don makeup and a cute outfit!  For me, during the weekend when I am working my to 5-9 (i.e. this blog) having brunch delivered is THE best thing! [...]

Pei Wei $5 Lunch Menu

Last week, I stopped over at Pei Wei with a group of blogger friends to sample their new $5 lunch menu.  Let me start with this, I am not a huge fan of Chinese food.  That's not to say that I do not like it, it's just that when I am craving a certain cuisine, Asian food is rarely one of them.  So I went to Pei Wei, the Chinese fast casual, for this lunch with moderate expectations.  Trust me when I say, I was blown away!  The Pei Wei $5 Lunch Menu, packs quality in with value and flavor!
