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 [...]
So I am an avid twitter user, logging in numerous times a day. One of the draws for me is the constant conversations about current events, politics, reality tv and a host of other things. Twitter is often times a focus group of sorts if you want to get a variety of opinions. I have seen people debate whether a $200 date is acceptable or the best way to approach a woman you are interested in. Trust me, these debates are reoccurring and hilarious. A recent debate got me thinking and I decided that this topic deserves a blog post. [...]
Guys, can you believe it?! 2016 has almost come to a close! There were a few lows, but the highs were amazing! For starters I turned 30, traveled like it was going out of style and of course had a great time with Black Girls Who Brunch! The end of this year deserves some celebration and I of course always recommend celebrating with food. Last year I combed the internet looking for a great restaurant to ring in the New Year and let me tell you it was not easy. Thankfully now that Black Girls Who Brunch has grown, [...]
The good folks over at Stay.Com asked me to create a list of my favorite Houston Brunches for tourists looking for local haunts in my hometown. The list, entitled "Out for Brunch in Houston," is similar to my own favorite Houston Brunch list that I made earlier this year with a few new additions! I made sure to include places that were created right here in Houston like Max's Wine Dive. Max's is now all over the country, but the original is right here on Washington. Also, I had to add our quintessential Houston breakfast spot, the Breakfast Klub. Standing [...]
I will be the first to admit, most of these are first world problems! But as I was thinking about the life of a foodie, I could not help but think it is not all glamour and free dinners. Here are the "problems" I came up with and I thought I would share, ha! Pondering about world problems. 1)I try to keep it positive for the most part on my blog. The idea is that you can come here for places I recommend, not places I hate. (Check out my Zomato account for the whole gamut!) Now while I [...]
My current favorite Houston Happy Hours!
I may or may not have a sweet tooth that is occasionally out of control however, this list is pretty strong evidence that I do. Tiff Treats This is an Austin, Texas implant with a few locations in Houston. Do not make the mistake of thinking that these are JUST cookies and you can buy them at Kroger's or make them yourself, because you cannot!! One dollar for a simple treat, loves it! Me thinking about Tiff Treats during a long day at work. Dessert Gallery Dessert Gallery is a gallery of trouble for me! They have a variety of [...]
It bears repeating that I just love eating out, that includes, breakfast, brunch, lunch, happy hour dinner, dessert. But brunch, it holds a special place in my food loving heart. A good brunch has the right element of haughtiness to quell the inner bougey black girl who resides in all of us. It’s a menu that includes breakfast and lunch items, so no matter what you are feeling it’s got you covered. It goes till about 2 or 3pm so even though you just rolled out of bed at 1:30pm after a night of drinking and partying you can still [...]
