Four Seasons Spa Houston

The Four Seasons is one of Houston's premiere hotels located near all the downtown happenings of the Toyota Center, House of Blues and Green Street.  As of late, there is a lot of construction in this area. From new hotels like the Marriott set to have a Texas shaped lazy river, to street upgrades and remodels like the one at the Four Seasons.  I was invited out along with my Houston Food Blogger Collective friends to visit the new upgraded spa and to check out the spa menu! While waiting at the lobby bar, the bartender told me that the [...]

Denver Bachelorette Party!

It's been about a month since my trip to Denver for my friend Vy's bachelorette party.  Despite the time that has lapsed, I still am excited to share all the great foodie experiences I had during my first trip to the mile high city! We had a group of eleven all there to celebrate my friend Vy's new chapter, marriage!! Her sister put together a great itinerary which included all the best Denver restaurants for us to enjoy.  When I go on trips people generally defer to me for restaurant picks, but this trip consisted of several foodies and every [...]

Harold’s in the Heights

Forgive me! I created this blog with the hopes of showcasing Houston Brunch spots and I have been blogging about everything but Houston Brunch spots! I am vowing to do better.  Since it is now officially maxi dress and patio season, I plan to be on someone's patio enjoying brunch until the heat becomes unbearable.  The good folks over at Harold's in the Heights invited me to try a dish they featured for National Waffle Day, the chicken and waffle BLT.  I threw on a maxi dress for the occasion, grabbed some sunglasses and headed out for a much needed brunch. [...]

The Kitchen at the Dunlavy

Houston spring is upon us!! The fact that by February we are back to sunny skies and 70 degree weather is why I will never trade in my hometown for a fancier model.  When the sun is shining I need to be out in the streets doing something and that generally includes eating.  On a Friday earlier this month, my co-worker and I stopped by the Kitchen at the Dunlavy for a quick lunch at this beautiful venue. Location/Setup: The Kitchen at the Dunlavy is part of the new Buffalo Bayou park along Allen Parkway.  The area includes [...]

Killen’s Barbecue and Tailgating

I have proclaimed my love of Kansas City barbecue on this very venue a many a times.  I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge that the place that I currently reside is also known for being home of the best barbecue in the country as well (I only acknowledge Texas, Memphis and KC for this accolade!).  When I mention that I have a food blog there are certain places that people always ask if I have visited, Killen's in Pearland usually tops the list.  When I say that I have not been, there is initial shock and then [...]

Foodie Travels: Los Angeles Day 3

By day three in Los Angeles, my body did not know what way was up! We slept most of the day away, *sighs* I guess I only can be an efficient traveler for one day at a time. I am not a big fan of Fast Food anymore, because that seems to be the thing to say nowadays.  While in a pinch and becoming very hangry, I made a trip to Pollo Loco for food to feed the troops!  Once I walked in and saw the chickens grilling and smelling all kind of delicious,  I knew I made a good food [...]

Foodie Travels: Los Angeles Day TWO

Okay I am back to recapping my fabulous trip to Los Angeles. I am having to break it up by days, because I was greedy and ate way too much during that trip to put it in one post.  On day two, my body's natural central time body clock clicked in and I was up and out before 9am.  The early tourists wins was my motto!!! Breakfast at Roscoe's My sister was on team eager beaver tourist as well. Our first stop that morning was Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles.  THE creator of the unique combo! This is a tourist hot [...]

Foodie Travels: Los Angeles Part One

As a child I saw a movie about a disastrous earthquake in LA and swore that I would never step foot in California. Ridiculous, I know.  Then after experiencing an earthquake in Missouri AND one in the DC area, I finally got over my fears and decided a trip to Cali needed to happen sooner than later.  Once my cousin made the bold move from Texas to Los Angeles, my sister, a few cousins, friends and I decided that a trip was needed! So just one week after my trip to Nashville, I was on a plane again, this time to [...]

Old Chicago Pizza and Tap Room Katy

So last week I did a few things that I do not typically do.  I went to a franchise restaurant in the burbs *gasps*  Hear me out before you hit the unsubscribe button though.  After being invited a couple of times to check out the new Old Chicago location in Katy, I decided to take their team up on their offer.  Their enthusiasm about Old Chicago was contagious so I broke a few of my normal Black Girls Who Brunch stipulations and tried it.  Plus I had fond memories of splurging on meals at Old Chicago while in college in Missouri, [...]
