Goodies from the French, Food & Drink Federation

*This post is sponsored by the French Food & Drink Federation, but the opinions are my own* It has been almost two years since my first visit to France and I still talk about the unique cuisine that we tried there.  So, when the French, Food & Drink Federation reached out to me to send a box of French fall favorites, I was of course excited!  About a week ago, they sent over a box of French inspired food items with American flair.   Many of which are items that are perfect for fall.  Keep reading for more on the Goodies [...]

Happy Hour at Ruth’s Chris

With a little over three years of blogging, I find myself revisiting restaurants that I may have rewritten off in the past.  Most recently, I stopped by Ruth's Chris with my HFBC friends and discovered that I had them all wrong.  I put Ruth's Chris in the "generic steakhouse" box assuming they had no standout attributes.  Well a recent happy hour opened my eyes to so many unique and delicious items from Ruth's Chris that you HAVE to try starting with their happy hour.  Dive on in to this Happy Hour at Ruth's Chris recap!

The Conservatory in Downtown Houston

Just thought I would drop by with a quick blog post for my followers who work downtown or nearby!  The Conservatory has been open for some time now, but if you are like me you are late to the party.  My cousins were in town from Missouri so I thought it would be a great stop that is unique to Houston.  Check out the rest of the details of the Conservatory in Downtown Houston below. The Setup You probably have passed the Conservatory and didn't even realize it.  Just a block beyond Main Street, the Conservatory sits behind an inconspicuous [...]

Eadeaux’s Food Truck

A few months back I introduced you all to a new group I helped form, the Black Blogger Clique.  Our aim is to create a collective of black bloggers who curate events and content that fits our key demographic, black women.  We are still in the beginning stages so bare with us, but we did recently host our very first tasting.  Other than being fabulous women of color, our other shared trait is food so a foodie event seemed perfect.  Eadeaux's Cajun Cocina Food Truck (black owned!) graciously hosted our group and provided us plenty of content to share! So [...]

Shell Shack Houston

A few months back a foodie friend (@fashionablylatefoodie)  raved about a soon to open seafood spot, Shell Shack.  I honestly cannot even remember how she described Shell Shack, but it was enough to pique my interest!  After a failed attempt to visit during their soft opening, we receive a coveted invite to their media tasting, so of course we had to go! Check out the details of my trip to Shell Shack Houston below. The Setup Shell Shack took over the Social Junkie space on Washington.  They spent several months revamping the space to fit their needs and did a [...]

Tour & Taste Through IAH Terminal E

Last week, I hit George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) with a boarding pass in hand, butttt did not take a flight.  What happened next was probably the coolest blogger event to date, a tasting tour of Houston's International Airport!

So follow me for my Tour & Taste Through IAH Terminal E with United Airlines and OTG (the brains behind the culinary operations!) Yume   Our first stop, Yume is a beautiful restaurant serving great Asian food to passengers.  This ain't your typical [...]
