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 [...]

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 [...]

Soufflés at Rise No. 2

When my friend from college hits me up to schedule a dinner, I instantly get excited! She is guaranteed to suggest a restaurant that has been on my radar, but I just have not had anyone to go with!  On this occasion she immediately suggested Rise No. 2, the soufflé focused restaurant.  I was ALL in to stop over at the Galleria located restaurant to indulge on some soufflés.   So it is fitting that this post is ALL about Soufflés at Rise No. 2!

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!

The Caddy Shack

I am back with another review of a Houston spot!   Before heading to New Orleans for Essence Fest, a group of my Houston Food Blogger Collective friends and I headed to the Caddy Shack on Washington to enjoy a media tasting of their menu items.  Here are the highlights!
