Air Fryer Fried Potatoes and Onions

More time in the kitchen brings about more food experiments! My new kitchen also brought more storage space allowing me to invest in some of the new popular kitchen gadgets, starting with an air fryer.   Prior to the air fryer I really was not frying food on the regular.  The mess, the popping grease and that smell! You'd smell it for days.  An air fryer eliminated those issues so I racked my brain trying to think of what I would make and instantly remembered my mama's fried potatoes!  As a child this was one of her go to sides made [...]

10 Things I’ve Done During Quarantine

Hello long lost friends! Earlier this week I realized that I had not drafted a blog post for the month of April and the month is half over.  In the five years that BGWB has existed that has never happened!  And in my month of absence a lot of "nevers" have happened!  I mean who woulda thunk that a national pandemic would take over 2020, require me to postpone Girls Love Crawfish, force us in to our homes for social distancing, close down all the fun businesses and sadly take the lives of thousands of people worldwide! COVID or as [...]

Postino’s Brunch

My brunch game has been weak this year, not going to lie!  When the folks over at Postino invited me out to try to the brunch menu, I jumped at the chance to do some much needed catching up.  I have visited Postino before (check out the recap here if you missed that), but for happy hour not brunch.  I typically do not write two blogs about the same restaurant, but the brunch was so good it deserved its own write up!  Get in to Postino's Brunch. The Drinks At its core, Postino is a wine bar so of COURSE [...]

The Classic Houston

I've been a fan of Benjy's and Local Foods since forever.  When the owners of these restaurants converted the Benjy's on Washington in to a new concept, The Classic Houston, I assumed I would like it as well.  The Classic has been around for awhile, butI finally got a chance to try it this week for lunch at work.  Here are my thoughts! The Location and Setup Can I get the decorator for this restaurant group to come decorate my house? Per usual the space is beautiful! Combining retro items that fit the diner concept with newer items works well [...]

Not so Basic, Basic Invite

 *This post is sponsored by Basic Invite but the opinions are my own* I am sure paper invites are among the many things that millennials are accused of not appreciating!  While I am one to jump on the latest technology can I just say that I love finding a beautiful invite or thank you card in my mailbox?  There is time and effort that goes in to picking an invite, finding some stamps and asking for people's addresses.  I truly enjoy it!  If you are like me, Basic Invite has you covered.  So get in to the Not so Basic, [...]

Bellagreen Winter Menu

*Checks calendar* February is almost over which means we are officially two months in to 2020! Many of us started 2020 with new years resolutions or affirmations for the year.  I am sure those included being healthier, working out more etc.   I am no different, but also know I have to be realistic with myself.  Ya girl likes to eat out!  I've obviously built a whole brand around this.  As such, I try to find dining options that are good, fairly priced and do not load on the calories.  Bonus points if they deliver!  Well, a few weeks back I [...]

Houston’s Newest Team: XFL Roughnecks

This weekend I attended an XFL Roughnecks game.  What is this you ask?  Houston's latest professional team, a new football team!  I went with a group of friends and did not know what to expect.  In the end, we had a great time so I thought I would share my experience with you all.   Here is the run down on Houston's Newest Team: XLF Roughnecks. How is this different than the NFL? I am not going to sit up here and pretended I know all of the football rules 'cause I do not!  Therefore I am unable to provide a [...]

ChopnBlok

What a nice segue from my last post about getting invited to blogger events!  A few weeks ago, I attended a pop up event at Flora Culture for ChopnBlok.   I had the privilege of being a friend's plus one (one of my tips) AND Houston Insider partnered to host the event (a second tip).   Honestly, I did not care HOW I got in the building.  I was just glad to be present for the ChopnBlok experience! The Event ChopnBlok hosts dining experiences which aim to expose the Houston community to Western African cuisine and culture.  With "fusion" being the hottest [...]

Getting Invited to Blogger Events

My friends affectionally call me "the plug" because I seem to have a knack for staying in the know about local events around town especially foodie events.  There are two avenues that keep me abreast of what is going on in my hometown, the first is my blog.  After almost five years in the game, most of the events I am interested in fall in my inbox in the form of press releases, invites or promotion partnerships.   The other side of this is just me being a Houstonian that wants to say informed on what is going on in the [...]
