Getaway Dallas

*My stay at the Getaway Dallas was covered by Getaway, but the opinions are my own*  I am back from my last trip of 2019! If you have been following along all year you know I've been on quite a few.  Check out the recaps here.   This one was totally different than the others though, it involved a road trip to the middle of nowhere and a stay in a small cabin.   Can I just say that I do NOT do the outdoors, camping or ruffing it.  It is not my ministry!  I stepped outside of my box and decided [...]

Taco Tuesday with CAULIPOWER Cauliflower Tortillas

This post is sponsored by CAULIPOWER Cauliflower Tortilla but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Who doesn't love Taco Tuesday? You can sign me up EVERY Tuesday for tacos! I recently discovered the CAULIPOWER brand and it is honestly taking Taco Tuesday to the next level.  The company takes pride in creating some of our favorite dishes with cauliflower.  From pizza crusts, to cauliflower tortillas.  Here is why I liked them.  I am the person who piles their tacos with all of the typical American toppings like sour cream, cheese and salsa.  As such, these tacos are [...]

A Simple Mac and Cheese

When I wrote the Mac and Cheese Rules a few years back many of you said "sis, but where is YOUR recipe."  I was still toying around trying to find something that I like.  I then found myself relying on recipes of other bloggers that I admire.  Their recipes were good, don't get me wrong, but I was not in love.  Plus they involved a lot of cheeses that I could not afford or pronounce.  So, this Thanksgiving I decided to simplify my process a bit and create a Simple Mac and Cheese.  It will put you in the mind [...]

Weekend in Beaumont Texas

So hear me out.  I spent the weekend in Beaumont, Texas.   On purpose.  AND had an amazing time!  Most Houstonians know about Beaumont, it's the smaller city to the east of us that we pass on our way to Louisiana.  I honestly had never stopped in Beaumont or even thought about it.   So when the Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau invited me to come explore the city I jumped at the chance to see what the city has to offer.  From the food to the attractions, Beaumont really has a lot of great stuff! Check out my recap of my [...]

Brunch at BB Italia

Let's talk about brunch people! I get so excited when I have a new brunch recommendation.  Mainly because I know that is why many of you come here and I try to give the people what they want!  A few weekends ago, a foodie friend and I visited BB Italia for brunch.  BB Italia is the sister restaurant to one of my all time favorites, B&B Butchers.  So you can imagine I was excited to visit and even more excited to visit for brunch.  Get in to this breakdown of Brunch at BB Italia! The Setup BB Italia is off [...]

Guide to Lake Tahoe

Life got a little busy for me and I had not been able to finish the recap of my Reno/Tahoe trip! Reno was great, but Tahoe was next level!  I have never considered myself much of an outdoorsy person so I did not know what to expect from Tahoe.  I mean there is a lake and mountains, so I expected my visit to be all about the outdoors.   Once again our guides curated experiences for us that fit our needs.  For me, that meant a trip to North Tahoe where I got to experience great food, views and experiences.  Check [...]

Davis St. at Hermann Park Featuring Chef Holley

A few years ago, Houston lost two great black owned restaurants Holley's and Davis Street at Hermann Park.  As I have traveled this year, I am learning that Houston is lucky in that not only do we have a plethora of black owned restaurants, but they also run the gamut in terms of restaurant type.   For example, we have high-end celebratory kind of restaurants that are also black owned.  Holley's and Davis Street fell in that "when you feeling fancy" category of a restaurant so I was sad to see them go! Well this year, in 2019, the owners behind [...]

Guide to Reno Nevada

*This trip was sponsored by the Reno Airport Services Corporation. All opinions are my own* A few weeks ago, I received an invite from the Reno Airport Services Corporation to visit and see that all Reno and the surrounding cities had to offer!  Now I must admit, I thought it could have been a scam, but once  I learned that United Airlines recently added a year around direct flight from Houston to Reno that the team wanted to showcase! For followers of my blog, you know this has been my year of travel so who am I to say no [...]

Bravery Chef Hall

I am obsessed with food halls (our fancy phrase for cafeterias) and downtown Houston is feeding my obsession by continuing to add new food halls!  Currently, we have Conservatory, Finn Hall, Understory and now Bravery Chef Hall.  I have been to them all and would recommend them all for different reasons.  Most recently, I stopped by Bravery Chef Hall a food hall located at the bottom of the Aris Market Square Apartments.   While the basic concept is similar, Bravery Chef Hall features restaurants curated by chefs making their offerings a step above others.  Check out my experience during a lunchtime [...]

What to See in Charleston

Whenever I would say I wanted to visit Charleston people would ask me why?! It was not New York City, or LA or even Miami what was the attraction?  Well... it all started with a little television show called Southern Charm (do not judge me!).  I watch just about everything on Bravo so this show was no different.  From the show, I learned how beautiful Charleston is.  I did a little more research and learned more about all of the African American history in Charleston and decided that I MUST GO! I shared with you what I ate, but now [...]
