Cultivated F+B in the Lancaster Hotel

When I rattle of Houston facts to a non-believer I generally mention that Houston boasts the second largest theater district in terms of seats.  I say this so proudly while privately I have to admit it is rare that I visit one of our beautiful theater district venues!  Well I guess I was due for another visit because late last fall a blogger friend dropped an event in our group chat that I could NOT miss.  Y'all, Boyz II Men scheduled a performance with the Houston Symphony at Jones Hall.  My R&B loving self would rollout to see Boyz II [...]

Apple Cinnamon Mini Bundt Cakes with Envy Apples!

 *Thanks to Envy Apples for sponsoring this post!  Please note the opinions and recipe included in this post are all me* The older I get, the more I pay attention to the types of food I purchase and eat.  The cheapest option may not always be the best and that super processed food we all grew up on is no longer the move.  The hardest thing about this is stepping away from the brands you've known your whole life.   When I think about apples for example, there are a couple of types that I grew up eating and I do [...]

Brunch at A’Bouzy

Forgive me friends for I have failed you.  A'Bouzy opened some years ago and I, your self proclaimed Houston brunch guide, just went last weekend.  I owe you apologies because brunch at A'Bouzy is everything a good brunch should be.  It is bougie and it is bozzy.   So if you waited for me to give it the Black Girls Who Brunch approval, here it is folks Brunch at A'Bouzy is my favorite brunch of 2019 and the year just started.
