Vanilla Bean Frozen Custard Recipe

Many many moons ago, I was an unemployed attorney living the housewife life (don't ask lol).  With a gift card I purchased my most cherished kitchen item, a KitchenAid mixer.  It immediately sent me into a baking frenzy and recipe creation. Then once I picked up the ice cream attachment I was deep into creating the perfect at home frozen custard because the ice cream starters kits are for suckers.  I shared this recipe on an old blog that I no longer post on.  Since I abandoned it, the recipe has been shared countless times, so it seemed like a [...]

Black Girls Who Brunch: Favorite Houston Brunches

I wrote my first "favorite Houston brunches" way back in May 2015 as one of my first posts on this website.  So much has changed since then and as you can imagine, I have visited a lot more Houston brunch spots.  So now I am back with an update to the list, just in time for the influx of Super Bowl visitors :). Since I am loyal many of the spots are the same since the last list, but I had to add some new favorites.  Just like last time, I am not claiming these are the BEST in Houston.  These [...]

Black Girls Who Brunch Houston Foodie Guide

When friends or family come to visit me in Houston, I take showing them a good time very seriously!  Houston is one of those cities that does not have a reputation like a Vegas, New York or Miami, so it is up to me to show them why I love this city so much. Since I became a food blogger, they all show up expecting me to take them on a culinary tour that is diverse as Houston.  That is where the fun comes in!  With each guest, I try to showcase the growing foodie scene in Houston by highlighting [...]

Etta’s Kitchen

If you are familiar with the Houston brunch scene, the name "Etta's" may ring a bell as the pop up at 5015 every Sunday.  Over the holiday break my blogger friend Renia organized an event at Etta's Kitchen so we could experience their new brick and mortar location in the historic Third Ward.  This was hands down one of the best events I attended in 2016.  Keep reading for more on this fun experience :) The Concept What I am honestly most excited about are the events that Etta's Kitchen will be hosting, right in our community.   There are plenty [...]

Healthy Options at Hopdoddy!

The start of the new year means #NewYearNewMe for a lot of folks.  For us foodies, common new year's resolutions are vows to cook more, eat out less and of course eat healthier.  With those pledges our favorite food spots get dumped at the start of the year and we only come back once our resolutions are forgotten.  Keeping this in mind, the good folks over at Hopdoddy invited me to come back out and try the other side of their menu, the healthy side! Menu! The Details I have been to Hopdoddy before and blogged about it [...]

To Split the Check or Not?

So I am an avid twitter user, logging in numerous times a day.  One of the draws for me is the constant conversations about current events, politics, reality tv and a host of other things.  Twitter is often times a focus group of sorts if you want to get a variety of opinions.  I have seen people debate whether a $200 date is acceptable or the best way to approach a woman you are interested in.  Trust me, these debates are reoccurring and hilarious.  A recent debate got me thinking and I decided that this topic deserves a blog post.

The Paris Series: Random Thoughts and Tips

I know it's been over a month since I returned from Paris, but I have more to say!! Spend about a week in foreign countries and you will come home with SO many thoughts.  In this case, all of my thoughts did not fit in my three previous posts so I had to make a whole new posts with my random musings from this trip.  I threw in a few travel tips too :).  Enjoy! Rude? One common thing I heard about Parisians is that they are RUDE.  I did not find that to be true!  While they were not [...]

Where to Dine in Houston for New Years Eve!

Guys, can you believe it?! 2016 has almost come to a close! There were a few lows, but the highs were amazing!  For starters I turned 30, traveled like it was going out of style and of course had a great time with Black Girls Who Brunch!  The end of this year deserves some celebration and I of course always recommend celebrating with food.  Last year I combed the internet looking for a great restaurant to ring in the New Year and let me tell you it was not easy.   Thankfully now that Black Girls Who Brunch has grown, [...]

36 Hours in New York City

I am the fool who thought it would be a good idea to go to New York City the week after returning from Paris and London.  It sounded good in theory, you know that jet setting life that we all thought we would be living after college.  Well, that life is only good in theory because I am TIRED.  Despite still dragging from all of these travels I still must recap my trips here on BGWB for you all.  So here is what happened when I spent about 36 hours in New York City!' Back at it again! [...]
