I’m another year older and another year deeper in love with desserts, y’all. This Sunday, I celebrated my 29th birthday with a bunch of friends, the premiere of Insecure’s third season, and this grown & sexy bourbon vanilla birthday cake! Last week, I put out […]
I’m not lactose-intolerant or anything but have been off dairy milk for years now and was excited to find that this tropical pineapple nice cream tastes amazing when made with my favorite non-dairy milk. I’ve used coconut milk (the creamiest) and almond milk with good […]
So, I may have created something to rival my famous sweet potato praline bread pudding, y’all. I like to try at least one new dish each Thanksgiving, and this nutty apple cranberry bread pudding was a brand new dessert recipe I came up with last […]
A deliciously moist spice cake with apples and pumpkin–topped with maple cream cheese frosting!
I’ll try to keep today’s post short and sweet because these donuts pretty much speak for themselves. Also, it’s been a supremely strange week, y’all. My Sunday was pretty relaxed and I attended a photography workshop with the Houston Blogger Union. I eased into a […]
Happy Pi Day, y’all! I love refrigerator pies for the warmer months, which are definitely becoming more and more abundant here in Texas. #globalwarmingisreal They’re less fussy and it’s so easy to incorporate flavors that you wouldn’t necessarily find in a more traditional pie. In […]

A delicious cake I celebrated my birthday with–full of deep,delicious flavors and perfect for any occasion.
This recipe is from my soror, Kirstyn Scott. She hails from Harlem, New York and writes about all sorts of fabulous things (including food) over at North of the Park. She is kind of killing all the excuses my sweet tooth makes when I reach for […]
The subject of this post is intended for readers 21 years and older. I watched a Facebook video read an article recently about how millennials are the most nostalgic generation and the reasoning behind it. Though there are many things from my childhood in which I […]

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I thought I would share some dishes befitting of a romantic dinner for two. I am starting with dessert because, well, it’s my favorite part. 🙂 This dessert combines two classic sweets that are often associated with the holiday. […]
