Finally back in my kitchen with my associate. While at our amazing brunch, Will and I took the time (post eating of course), to write our grocery list for the week. Since we had cleared out the pantry and fridge … Continue reading
I really am so sorry for not posting while I was home. Wedding things consumed my days. It is so fun making wedding decisions with my Mom by my side, rather than having her be an entire plane ride away.
So while I was home, my Mom and Brother were both moving about with a nasty cough and some congestion. Welp, as opposed to cooking, I was trying to keep rested and taking the maximum dosage of Vitamin C each day. Proud to say, I think I survived. But, it didn’t mean that my body wasn’t extremely exhausted from fighting off whatever this horribly awful cold was.
I woke up Sunday back in Houston, the day after my lengthy travels, and felt as though I had been hit by a bus. My associate and I had discussed making pancakes in the morning, as we do each Sunday, but I just could not do it. As I had been at home, and Will in Atlanta for a business trip, there was NO food in the house. My cravings for a heartwarming brunch were out of control. Welp, what did we do?? Go to brunch OF COURSE!
Ruggles Green is this restaurant in Houston with a few locations, that serves absolutely delicious healthy cuisine. Trust me, if you’re ever in Houston you should take the time to go. Basically, you order at the counter, take your number with you, and pick your seat. Only one of their locations currently serves weekend brunch. Naturally, it is not the location across the street from us, but still only ~10 minutes away. Off we went!
The menu offers a lot of yummy options. My indecisiveness was a huge issue (per usual).
So what did my associate and I decide to get? Will ordered the Huevos Rancheros (no surprise really). I was torn, but went with the Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes (GF). WOW. Let’s just say, we will be going back.
Did I mention the coffee was amazing too!? It is always so refreshing to find a restaurant that offers brunch made with wholesome ingredients, that leaves you feeling simply delighted 🙂 .
Many more brunch posts to come, as it is absolutely my favorite meal of all time. At home or dining out, brunch brings people together, warms hearts, and fills bellies with absolutely wonderful food.
So sorry for the lack of posts over the past few days! I have been traveling, and therefore haven’t been cooking quite as much as I normally do. Well, let us go back in time to Thursday evening, the night … Continue reading
Growing up, red meat was never a staple in our household. I am told this was for health reasons. So basically, we always had the turkey or chicken version of all meals. This meant turkey/chicken meatballs, meatloaf, burgers, chili, tacos, … Continue reading
If you are anything like me, some days you are just not into cooking a huge meal. Growing up in a money conscious household, eating out was not a common occurrence. Of course we would get take out pizza and … Continue reading
So we all have a favorite candy bar, right? Well, Will is slightly obsessed with Nestle Butterfinger bars. He loves getting his paws on those, especially as a topping on an ice cream sundae. So I was perusing through some … Continue reading
My dearest William works a TON. He works his ass off day in and day out. I am so proud of him and his amazing work ethic, but this doesn’t leave much time for lengthy prep and hours of cook … Continue reading
So to say I am obsessed with bars, is probably some sort of understatement. I love their ability to travel with me on the go. They are never messy, and always save me from my constant insatiable hunger. As you … Continue reading
