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 [...]

Brunch at A’Bouzy

Forgive me friends for I have failed you.  A'Bouzy opened some years ago and I, your self proclaimed Houston brunch guide, just went last weekend.  I owe you apologies because brunch at A'Bouzy is everything a good brunch should be.  It is bougie and it is bozzy.   So if you waited for me to give it the Black Girls Who Brunch approval, here it is folks Brunch at A'Bouzy is my favorite brunch of 2019 and the year just started.

Omni Houston Hotel

About two weeks before Hurricane Harvey I toured the Omni Houston Hotel with the Houston Food Blogger Collective.  We loved our tour and I actually wrote my review while holed up during the storm.  I never shared the post though because I soon learned that the Omni Houston took on several feet of water and would be closed for renovations.  Over a year later and $30 million in renovations, the Omni Houston is back open with a whole new look. Just last weekend, our group went back for a tour and I gotta say I love the new Omni Houston [...]

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 [...]

Neyow’s Houston

I had a foodie mission during Essence Festival this year.  Try all of the great black owned restaurants in New Orleans and I clearly was not the only one because they all had lines wrapped around the block!  Several locals told me Neyow's was a must stop.  Welp their line was around the block too.  I vowed to swing by on my next visit to New Orleans.  So imagine my excitement when I learned Neyow's planned to open a location right here in Houston!  I tagged along with some foodie friends for the soft opening this weekend and got a [...]

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 [...]
