The Mac & Cheese Rules

Let me start by saying I LOVE mac 'n cheese.  It is my all time favorite side dish.  I enjoy making it and of course partaking in devouring it.  As the Thanksgiving holiday approached, I got excited about all the mac 'n cheese I planned to eat.  Then something odd happened, it seemed like everyone was presenting their own spin on mac 'n cheese AND about 50% of these versions broke the cardinal rules!  Scrolling social media, I found myself saying "oh no baby what is you doin' " countless times!  So I decided that as a connoisseur of mac 'n [...]

Holiday Gift Guides

We are within hours of Thanksgiving so I think it is safe to start talking about Christmas gifts right?? (Please don't yell at me Holiday Police!) Ahead of Black Friday and the official start of the holiday shopping season, I created two holiday gift guides with some fun items and outsourced the third one to a surprise guest (read on to find out who).  Some of these items are my favorite things (*in my Oprah voice*), things I am eyeing for myself or just cute gift ideas! Enjoy! The Gadget Lover Gift Guide Vinglacé- this portable wine container is a [...]

Brunch and Football!

The calendar says it is fall, yet Houston temperatures say otherwise! Despite our fall weather challenges there are a few other signs that fall is upon us, including football!  Eventually the weather will cooperate and when it does, two of the greatest Sunday events converge to create the ultimate Sunday Funday!  Brunch and Football! So here is how I made this list.   There are plenty of brunch spots around town, but many of them do not have ample televisions to really enjoy all of the Sunday NFL games.   On the other end, many sports bars lack dedicated brunch [...]

Travel Guides Roundup

So I like to travel, shocking I know!  For me, planning a trip can take months.  After I have scored my flight, I begin in-depth research about the new place I am going.  Most folks go to your big travel websites like Trip Advisor for reviews and guidance. I do too, because they are very helpful, but my favorite source of travel advice? Other bloggers! I honestly spend more time now searching Pinterest and my friends' blogs looking for information for my next trip.  I decided to share the wealth and drop a Travel Guides Roundup featuring my fellow Houston [...]

Black Owned Brunchin’

So when I travel there are a few musts for me when it comes to food.  First, I want to stick to locally owned spots that reflect the local cuisine and culture.  Next, I gotssss to find a brunch spot.  The reason there is obvious!  Beyond that though, I also really like supporting black owned businesses!  While thinking about these three things, I decided to put together a list of black owned brunch spots around the country!  I reached out to my vast blogger circle and friends for their advice and posts so that we can spread some love via Black [...]

It’s Not Delivery, It’s Brunch at Home!

So technically it IS delivery, but I loved this title so I had to go with it!  Brunch is very much a social experience. You grab your crew and catch up on the good gossip around a carafe of mimosas.  I completely get that, but some days I just want the food without the fluff.   Basically send me the chicken and waffles to my door, so I do not have to don makeup and a cute outfit!  For me, during the weekend when I am working my to 5-9 (i.e. this blog) having brunch delivered is THE best thing! [...]

Where to Brunch for Easter in Houston

Next Sunday is Easter Sunday, the holiest day of the year for Christians as we celebrate the resurrection!  As a kid I remember getting dolled up in bright spring colors, having my hair straightened and heading to church to celebrate the holiday.  Once at home, our Easter breakfast and subsequent dinner were usually more elaborate than every other Sunday meal, with a ham or roast and desserts.  Now, we the increased popularity of brunch I imagine my mother would have opted for that instead!  It seems to me that a brunch after Easter service goes hand and in hand.  With that [...]
