Taste of the NFL

Here again still playing catch up!! The Super Bowl was several weeks ago yes, but I would be remiss if I did not do a brief recap for you guys on the Taste of the NFL event.  This event showcases chefs from around the country, each representing an NFL team/city.    Proceeds from the event go to local food banks.  Since Houston hosted the event, most of the proceeds go to the Houston Food Bank, with other NFL cities receiving a smaller share for their local food banks. The Red Carpet Media pass and red carpet ready! Once [...]

Eloise Nichols Grill & Liquors

As you guys can imagine, I eat out a lot (no judgment please).  Sometimes life gets crazy and I am unable to blog about all the places I've eaten immediately, so I am currently playing catch up.   A few weeks back, a college friend invited me out to dinner. We decided on Eloise Nichols Grill & Liquors because we had both heard great things but had never been!  Once I heard that Eloise Nichols was owned by the sibling duo behind Adair, I knew I had to go! Location: So my friend and I both thought that Eloise Nichols [...]

Fitzgerald’s Problematic Email

*Puts lawyer hat on.*  Y'all, another Houston spot has been accused of racism, but get this the discriminatory comments are in writing!  Here is the back story.   Today, a Houston based producer named Garrett Brown aka TrakkSounds (who happens to be white) reached out to local music venue Fitzgerald's requesting information on booking two "billboard charting hip hop artists" at their venue.  He received the below email in response. *music stops, mouth hits the floor*  You'd think I would be used to instances of overt racism, but each time my mouth hits the floor and I scream YOU CANT [...]

Happy Hour at 51fifteen

Have you seen the beautiful new Saks Fifth Avenue at the Houston Galleria?  Ever since it opened I have been dying to visit!  Well I got a chance a few weeks ago when Saks invited my Houston Food Blogger Collective group out for an event.  Keep reading for my experience! Setup: The Galleria can be intimidating to maneuver.  Thankfully, Saks is one of the few stores that you can enter from a parking garage without going into the main mall.  From there you take an elevator right up to the second floor into the restaurant.   You can also enjoy [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
