2022 Favorite Brunches

Apologies, it's been sometime since I've done a favorite brunch list.  I have my reasons though.  There is a lot of pressure to pick favorites and I always feel like I am forgetting one.  Then add to that my brunching activities were pretty non-existent the last few years given all that has gone on in the world.  But as I've started getting out more, I've found myself wanting my own list of solid brunch places to visit.   So here is my 2022 Favorite Brunches list,  I will update it as I encounter more. Let me also manage expectations, this list [...]

Sweet Potato Biscuits

Y'all know that I love sweet potatoes and will add them to just about anything.  Growing up, biscuits were our after church meal.  My mother would crack open the can, throw them in her corningware dish then cook them until they were golden brown.  My sister and I would then fight over who got the middle biscuit, both preferring the soft edges.  While my working mother did not have the time to create homemade biscuits, she still curated a tradition that holds a special place in my heart.  As I started dabbling in more homemade dishes, I was pleasantly surprised [...]

Guide to Mexico City

Hey friends!  Mexico City has been top of my travel wish list for many years and thankfully it was on my sister's too.   She's been studying Spanish and really wanted an opportunity to test out her skills.  I of course was along for the food and culture.  With both of us aligned on the destination, we booked our trip to Mexico City for mid January flying AeroMexico.   It was a short weekend trip so we did not get to see it all.  I do however intend on going back soon, but in the meantime here is my Guide to Mexico [...]

Dining Solo in Houston

One of my followers dropped me a line on Instagram and asked me if I had a list of places that were great to eat alone.  I actually did not, but my general rule is one person has the question there are likely others that do as well.  Plus it seemed like a good question.  So I decided to get some answers from my BGWB Instagram followers plus add a few places of my own.  A few restaurants were suggested by several of my Houston followers so it seemed like a great list to share on my blog.   Here are [...]

Blackity Black Events for 2022

Listen, I will travel to just about anywhere for any type of event if it has good food, people and fun activities.   But, events that cater to black folks hold a special place in my heart and will shoot right to the top of my “must visit” list.  After visiting events like Essence Festival several times, the inaugural Family Reunion or a good ole HBCU football classic, I started thinking about what are the quintessential black events.  I polled my audience and did some googling as well.  Here are some of the events I came up i.e. Blackity Black [...]

Weekend in Memphis

This year has been a year of travel, making up for 2020.  As you probably can tell, I love a weekend trip especially when traveling domestically.  Earlier this year my friend recommended a weekend trip to Memphis, Tennessee for the Southern Heritage Classic.  This game would match up Jackson State University coached by Deion Sanders and Tennessee State University coached by Eddie George.  Considering that I have family in Memphis, had never been AND Southwest had cheap flights?! This seemed like an easy yes for a Weekend in Memphis. Where to Stay For this trip we opted to stay at [...]
