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 [...]

Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls

If you have been following me for awhile you know that I am solidly on "team sweet potato is better than any and everything pumpkin flavored".  While a pumpkin flavored item will never grace my dinner table, I do take some inspiration from the constant onslaught of pumpkin flavored foolery every fall! If they can add pumpkin to stuff then I surely can make it better with sweet potato.  Hence my new favorite recipe, Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls. The inspiration for these was simple.  Sweet potatoes come to life when you throw in some butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.  And [...]
