When I am asked that cliche question, "Can you cook?" I usually respond affirmatively, but note that I am even better at making reservations *hair flip*. Even though someone else doing the cooking is ideal, this foodie actually can cook... when I feel like it! Since starting this blog, I have intended to add my at home foodie adventures to the mix, and the holiday season is as good of time as ever. Here is my Sweet Potato Muffin Recipe! For me fall means sweet potato season NOT pumpkin season. My favorite stores are on the pumpkin bandwagon, so I have [...]

I am also on Zagat’s email list. They are not a frequent emailers, but when they do send emails it’s full of great suggestions about new or unique restaurants in Houston.

My foodie group :) Anyone who loves to eat out like me needs to be a member of a supper club or a foodie group! Mine started organically during Houston's Restaurant Week in 2013. A few co-workers and I went to dinner for one of the lady's birthday. We had so much fun we decided to make it a monthly thing.
