Omni Houston Hotel

About two weeks before Hurricane Harvey I toured the Omni Houston Hotel with the Houston Food Blogger Collective.  We loved our tour and I actually wrote my review while holed up during the storm.  I never shared the post though because I soon learned that the Omni Houston took on several feet of water and would be closed for renovations.  Over a year later and $30 million in renovations, the Omni Houston is back open with a whole new look. Just last weekend, our group went back for a tour and I gotta say I love the new Omni Houston [...]

After eyeing them for years, I finally purchased a dutch oven.  That of course meant I needed to make some dutch oven things!  So I started out with a one pot pasta and per usual decided to share it on my Instagram story.  So many of y'all messaged me asking me to share the recipe.  It is really quite simple and really does cook in one pot!  Check out my One Pot Chicken Spinach Pasta below.

Goode Co. Kitchen & Cantina

With everyone so hung up on brunch, it seems like we forget how great a simple breakfast can be.  I got a reminder last weekend with a stop over to Goode Co. Kitchen & Cantina in Memorial for their weekend breakfast!  It is so good and worth the early morning wake up! The bar area! The Drinks Since it was still breakfast, I kind of expected to only be offered coffee and OJ (hold the pulp).  Well the one thing that feels brunch like would be the drink menu.   The brunch cocktails include sangria, bloody marys and the [...]

Neyow’s Houston

I had a foodie mission during Essence Festival this year.  Try all of the great black owned restaurants in New Orleans and I clearly was not the only one because they all had lines wrapped around the block!  Several locals told me Neyow's was a must stop.  Welp their line was around the block too.  I vowed to swing by on my next visit to New Orleans.  So imagine my excitement when I learned Neyow's planned to open a location right here in Houston!  I tagged along with some foodie friends for the soft opening this weekend and got a [...]
