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 [...]

Cultivated F+B in the Lancaster Hotel

When I rattle of Houston facts to a non-believer I generally mention that Houston boasts the second largest theater district in terms of seats.  I say this so proudly while privately I have to admit it is rare that I visit one of our beautiful theater district venues!  Well I guess I was due for another visit because late last fall a blogger friend dropped an event in our group chat that I could NOT miss.  Y'all, Boyz II Men scheduled a performance with the Houston Symphony at Jones Hall.  My R&B loving self would rollout to see Boyz II [...]

Apple Cinnamon Mini Bundt Cakes with Envy Apples!

 *Thanks to Envy Apples for sponsoring this post!  Please note the opinions and recipe included in this post are all me* The older I get, the more I pay attention to the types of food I purchase and eat.  The cheapest option may not always be the best and that super processed food we all grew up on is no longer the move.  The hardest thing about this is stepping away from the brands you've known your whole life.   When I think about apples for example, there are a couple of types that I grew up eating and I do [...]
