Happy Hour at Mia Bella Trattoria

Dropping in for a quick post about an amazing low-key happy hour that I recently discovered!  I visited Mia Bella Trattoria with my Houston Food Blogger Collective friends last week and we were all pretty impressed with the happy hour offerings!  It left many of us wondering HOW did we not know this existed?! And if we didn't know, I imagine quite a few of you did not either.   So here I am, doing as I do, sharing the wealth! Get in to this Happy Hour at Mia Bella Trattoria. Location Okay look beyond the drink for a second [...]

Houston Neighborhood Guide Pt. 1

I jokingly bragged about the excellent Houston tour I gave to my cousins last year and received so many requests to share the wealth!  I love my hometown and take great pride in showing it off to out-of-towners.   Many people do not know much about the city outside of NASA, Beyonce and our sports teams.   So I consider this a challenge and I must say most of my visitors go home with a new appreciation for the great city of Houston. As I started to think about how I can share my guide, I realized this deserved several posts.  I [...]

Back to Rome

Rome has quickly become one of my favorite cities in the world.  When booking my latest flight deal, we debated between Rome and Madrid (both cities had deals from Houston).  Ultimately we decided on Madrid, but I was determined to swing back through Rome too.  We lucked up on a $75 roundtrip flight via RyanAir (more on that later).  With that, I was Back to Rome to see some new things and swing back by some places I loved! Here are some random things I wanted to share from my second visit to Rome (for the recap of my first [...]

Where to Stay in Madrid

I recapped most of the highlights from my Madrid trip with the 12 Things to Do and See in Madrid post, but I wanted to be sure to share where I stayed!  Since we made a stop over to Rome, that split our Madrid trip in to two.  Rather than staying at the same hotel on both legs, we mixed it up and stayed at another hotel.  So, that left me with two hotel recommendations.  Check out my Where to Stay in Madrid recommendations! Picking Hotels Hotels/Accommodations usually falls in my lap when we travel.  With Madrid, I really did [...]

12 Things to Do and See in Madrid

Whew! The last few weeks have been crazy busy and things have just slowed down enough that I am able to recap all of my recent travels.  Last month, I headed back to Europe for a third time and added a new city to the mix, Madrid!  There was so much I loved about Madrid, so I created a quick list recapping my favorite things.  Here are the 12 Things to Do and See in Madrid! 1) Start with a City Tour I recommend starting with a city tour in any new city.  Book a simple hop on and off [...]

Taste Bar & Kitchen

I intended to hold off before reviewing Taste Bar & Kitchen 'cause it is brand new and I imagine will have changes over the next few months.  But so many of y'all have asked my opinion and rather than responding to every message on Instagram, I decided to go ahead put up a blog.  So here it is, my take on Houston's newest black owned brunch spot, Taste Bar & Kitchen. The Setup Taste Bar & Kitchen took over the space vacated by Sterling House which is a historic building and once home to a governor. There were a few [...]

Coca-Cola Barbecue Wings

*This post is sponsored by Kroger and The Coca-Cola Company but all opinions are my own* March is such a fun month!  We step out of winter hibernation, enjoy spring break and begin those social gatherings that will continue throughout the summer.  One of the other highlights for me is always March Madness! We all create brackets and cheer on our alma maters (MIZ!) as they fight to win the tourney.  If you are like me then you are likely to gather at some point during March Madness so that means that you will need some good bites.   Thankfully, Kroger has [...]

Breakfast at EggHaus

I caught a quick breakfast this morning with my foodie friends Tha Fat Girl Food Chronicles and Fashionably Late Foodie at EggHaus in the Heights.  All of us had been eyeing the cute breakfast spot, so when I received an invite to come try their new speciality croissant, we made it a date! The Drinks Mexican Hot Chocolate For coffee drinkers, EggHaus offers plain ole American black coffee, lattes, espresso and cold brew.  I am not one for coffee, so I went for the Mexican Hot Chocolate which is served with cinnamon.  Considering that it was a little [...]
