Brioche French Toast Casserole

I have quite a bit of time on my hands due to Hurricane Harvey.   I have spent some time volunteering and working on long term efforts with some of my blogger friends.   But I STILL had some time on my hands.  So what's a food blogger to do?  Play around in the kitchen that's what.  As a brunch lover, I have wanted to create a French Toast Casserole after seeing Tia Mowry's version on her cooking show!  Now seemed like a great time to create a Brioche French Toast Casserole!

Volunteering at the Houston Food Bank

In true Houston fashion, Houstonians are around town trying to help and volunteer wherever they can.   Many places have had AMAZING turnout and are having to turn volunteers away!  I have had so many friends reach out and tell me they are having a hard time finding places to volunteer because places are full!  This is so representative of the city I know and love!   Yesterday, I spent the evening volunteering at the Houston Food Bank to help with the increase need after the hurricane.  I thought I would share you with you about my fun experience Volunteering [...]

Houston, My Hometown

I spent most of my childhood and now adult life living in my hometown of Houston.  I love this city to its core.  It is a beautiful city filled with an amazing diverse population that love this city as much as I do.  We have watched horrified as our city has taken on historic amounts of rain.  An estimated 50 inches will fall in Houston before this is all over.  The amount Houston sees in a year, in a matter of DAYS.  My hometown is a lake.  The highways are rivers.  Many of my fellow Houstonians have lost everything.   Thankfully, [...]

Yoga at Revolution Studios

This food blogger *points to self* is knee deep in a two week trial at Revolution Studios and I wanted to share with you all a bit of my experience! No worries, I am not turning into some fitness or health blogger.  That's just not my life!  But lets be honest!  Life is about balance and let me tell you once you cross that 30 year threshold, you need more balance.   So I am trying to increase my activity level a bit and do things that I enjoy like Yoga.  So check out all the fun with this post on [...]

Bernie’s Burger Bus Heights

Can you guys believe this last month was my first visit to Bernie's Burger Bus?!  I always hear Bernie's mentioned as one of the best local burger spots in town I just had not made my way to one of their locations yet. Luckily, their team invited me out for a tasting at their brand new location in the Heights!  The cool thing about Bernie's? It literally started out as a food truck run out of an old bus, hence the name.  Some of their original spots to park the bus were in the Heights.  Bernie's is now full circle [...]

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 [...]
