Susie Cakes

I cannot recall the last time I attended an event and had SO much fun that I rushed home to write a blog post to share with you all!  Last night, I had the pleasure of visiting the soon to open, Susie Cakes Bakery in Rice Village for a tasting.  If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I LOVE cakes and consider myself an amateur baker.   So I obviously jumped at the opportunity to go behind the curtain at a real bakery.   Then they added wine too? It was a full blown party!  To live vicariously through me, [...]

I thought I'd stop by for a quick post about some great additions to the Tasting Room menu!

Cocktails Infused Plums You may think of the Tasting Room for their vast wine selection.   While this is true, they also are killing the game when it [...]

Crumbville, TX

The corner of Emancipation Avenue and Elgin is booming y'all!  First, local leaders rightfully ditched the street name Dowling (named after a Confederate solider) and renamed it the more progressive name Emancipation Avenue. Yay for change!  Then, the Emancipation Park renovations were completed just in time for this year's Juneteenth celebrations! I have not toured it yet, but the pictures look amazing! All of these things are exciting and have brought national media attention to Houston's Historic Third Ward.   What I hope though, are some of the cool business operating in this area get some attention too.  I have [...]

The Sweet List

As a kid, I was weird and hated sweets.  I would pass on my own birthday cake and cringe when offered chocolate.  What was wrong with me?!  Sometime between then and now I developed a massive sweet tooth which constantly puts me on the hunt for the best desserts in Houston.   I wrote about this some years back and that list still holds true.  I just got a tad greedier since that list and discovered several new spots, thus creating the Sweet List! Check below for my additions :) Amorino Who doesn't love good ice cream?  Well, when it comes in [...]
