Foodie Friday: Modern Market Eatery Plano

Hi Foxy People!

I hope you are enjoying this Foodie Friday series. This is something cute I thought about and figured it was a good way to highlight some foodie experiences each week.

This week, I am covering the grand opening of Modern Market at their new Plano location. Every time I get a chance to attend one of their events, I always feel honored. The food is always amazing and each location is just beautiful with their bright yellow and white color scheme. It brings about happy feels and goes along with their focus of having fresh and vibrant dishes.

Modern Market

Things to know…

  1. Modern Market focuses on providing pure and simple ingredients. That means, they make a point to really focus on farm to table by partnering with farmers, ranchers, suppliers, etc. that follow sustainable practices. They stray away from the artificial and antibiotic filled foods, which is great!
  2. It’s a fast food like vibe similar to a Panera Bread, which means no reservations are needed. I like to stay and eat there. The look and feel is too nice to hurry home.
  3. It caters the Vegans, Vegetarians, and Meat Lovers. You can bring the whole family and everyone can experience great, fresh food!

Favorite Dish

Buddha Bowl

Warm heirloom rice, sesame glazed tofu, spicy roasted broccoli, carrot, citrus cabbage slaw, peanut, cilantro, peanut mango sauce

  • If you are looking for a fresh, light item to eat for lunch, this would be it. The surprising thing is I do not like tofu, but their tofu is soaked really good in the sesame glaze. It is good to me and I never thought I would be saying that lol. The citrus cabbage slaw is bright. The peanut mango sauce mixed with the chopped peanuts gives the bowl a nice crunch. It’s a good dish.*Also,  you have to get a Carrot Lemonade to go with any meal you order. It’s SO good! Just picture fresh carrots that are juiced and mixed in with their special lemonade. Just give it a try!

If you go to Modern Market, give us a shoutout and let them know Foxy Veggies sent you!

Thanksgiving Dinner: Vegetarian Style

Happy Wednesday Foxy People!

The holiday season is approaching so fast! I know you usually see my Foodie Friday posts, but this week I wanted to ensure that I equipped everyone with some of my top items and go to recipes for a great, veggie friendly Thanksgiving. This will hopefully give you time to plan your menu!

Top 3 Thanksgiving Turkey Substitutes 

Great news! All of these below options are Vegan.

GN_TurkyCutlets_RGB-2-225x231Gardein Turk’y Meatless Cutlets

This product I enjoy thoroughly throughout the fall. I hope they start having this year round because it is so good! It is a pre-breaded cutlet that you can bake and pair with your favorite gravy. This is a soy based product and is made with organic ancient grain flour (KAMUT® khorasan wheat, amaranth, millet, quinoa) and potato starch.Check out this link for ingredient details.


vegan-naken-chicken-cutlets (1)Quorn Chik’n Cutlets

I was drawn to this product simply because of the name lol. I ended up liking this item because of it’s texture. If you don’t want a soy based product, you may want to give this one a try. It is made from Mycoprotein, Potato protein, and Pea fiber. I like to cook this product in Vegetable broth. It absorbs those flavors very well.Check out this link for ingredient details.


GN_HolidayRoast-225x134Gardein Holiday Roast

I haven’t had a chance to try this option, but I’ve been wanting to for years! It’s finally available in the Dallas area, so I’m going to give it a try. This is a soy based product as well and is made with organic ancient grain flour (KAMUT® khorasan wheat, amaranth, millet, quinoa) and potato starch. Want to try it with me? It is basically formed like a roast and it has a stuffing mix in the middle.Check out this link for ingredient details.

Top 3 Thanksgiving Sides

Cornbread Dressing

Follow your traditional recipe for baking cornbread. You can swap out some of the dairy products with vegan buttery spread and unsweetened almond milk to make it Vegan friendly. Once it is baked and cooled, add in some fresh rosemary chopped, some sauteed onions and bell peppers, vegetable broth, salt, black pepper, thyme, and a lot of sage! lol. I just love that seasoning during the holidays. Mix this well and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes on 350 degrees or until it is firm and golden at the top.


Mashed Potatoes

It’s all the same process you usually use for mashed potatoes. You just have to make Vegan friendly option. How? Simple, instead of using milk or cream, swap out the ingredients with unsweetened almond milk. Instead of using butter, swap it out with a vegan buttery spread like Earth Balance original spread or extra virgin olive oil. If you’re okay with keeping it Vegetarian friendly, add in a tablespoon of olive oil mayo and some cheese for extra creaminess.


Sauteed Kale

This is the most easy recipe of them all! All you need is a few bunches of kale, sweet onion, extra virgin olive oil, black pepper, red pepper flake, and salt. Saute them all in a skillet until the kale is withered and the onions are a golden brown color.

Foodie Friday: Bellagreen

Hi Foxy People!

It’s “Foodie Friday”, my favorite day of the week. It’s my chance to highlight some pretty dope restaurants in the DFW area. I’ve been really lucky in my blogger journey because I’ve been able to go to some really nice grand openings.

This week, I was invited to the Grand Opening of Bellagreen. It’s an American Bistro that has multiple locations in Houston. The new location on Walnut Hill Ln will be the 1st of many in the DFW.

Now let’s get to the fun part! You’re obviously wondering, how did you like the food and the space? You know I got you! Check out all the highlights from Bellagreen below.

Bellagreen

 

Instagram @foxyveggies

Things to know…

  1. They are environmental conscious people at Bellagreen. Their goal is to make the communities around their restaurants more beautiful. To do that, they make sure to reduce their ecological footprint through Alternative Power, Chemical & Pollution Reduction, Sustainable Food Practices, Sustainable Furnishings & Building Materials, and Water Conservation. I just love a place that cares about my well being and what food they are actually serving their patrons!
  2. It’s a casual dining restaurant, which means you can dress up or down. This is perfect for if you want to have a casual business team lunch, family night, or date night. It’s a place for every occasion.
  3. Their menu caters to so many dietary needs! For example, if you are Vegan or Vegetarian, they have you covered. If you are doing the Paleo diet, they have those options. They cater to those who live a Gluten Free lifestyle as well. So many perks and everyone can eat without feeling limited.
  4. ***BONUS FUN FACT*** For all of the Wine Connoisseurs, they have a program where if you bring in 10 wine corks during your meal, you can take home a free glass of wine! Yep, I said it! FREE BOTTLE OF WINE. Pretty nice right? They use those corks to create beautiful art for each restaurant location.

Favorite Dish

I had to list all of the goodies we had. They feed us very well!

 

Starter

Organic Spinach Dip
  • Imagine Spinach dip with all the good cheeses blended into you nice serving with flatbread and a tapenade inspired plate. Can you picture it? That’s what they have created for you. So yummy!

The Vegetarian Choice

The (V) Burger
  • I’ve never had a burger like this. It was creamy, but holds it’s form. It was also packed with little nuggets of veggies like corn and sweet potatoes. Great little surprises! You also get to choose a side of either sweet potato fries, house cut fries, or their quinoa salad. That quinoa salad was so fresh and I loved that it had nuts mixed in for a nice crunch.

A Fan Favorite for Meat Lovers

Brick Chicken with sides of Chipotle Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Roasted Vegetables
  • I had the pleasure of bringing my mama along with me. She enjoyed it! All great reviews in regards to flavor with the chicken and veggies. The lemon added a little tartness to it in a good way she mentioned.

Desserts

Carrot Cake & the Domino Cake
  • Both were AMAZING and rich! Let’s just say we cleaned our plates with those two.

Foodie Friday: Denver Eats

Hi Foxy People!

I’m a couple weeks behind with sharing my Denver Adventures. I know, I know lol. Let’s just say I had to catch up on my life here in Dallas and I hit the ground running with work and trying other food places. Regardless, I had a great foodie experience in Denver. Denver had to have been one of the most peaceful places I’ve ever visited in my life! It’s something about being in the mountains and seeing the beautiful red rock formations mixed with the blue skies. It’s breathtaking. The city was quiet too. It seemed that everything and everyone was just quietly enjoying life. I’m used to the hustle and bustle of cars buzzing by, trains, and people everywhere. It was nice to take a step back from all of that for a change. It was pretty dope to experience all of this with my girls and close friends.

One major thing that we share as friends is that we love food and we love to try new places. Our little planner of the group, Brittany, hooked us up with some great places to try for brunch while we were there. She nailed it! Our top 2 places to try in Denver were Denver Biscuit CompanySnooze

Check out the mini reviews below!

Denver Biscuit Company

IMG_20181022_070454_866

Things to know…

  1. They open at 8 am and close at 2 pm. Don’t get caught up and miss out. Plan your brunch arrival time to about 11 am – noon. This way you get to accommodate the wait time on the list.
  2. Obviously, this restaurant caters to their biscuits. The majority of the menu will have a biscuit involved and it’s worth it.
  3. They have good drinks too. Try a mimosa!

Favorite Dish

Biscuits + Gravy 

Biscuit smothered in housemade sausage or vegetarian mushroom gravy. You can add an egg as well

  • You have no idea how hard it can be to find vegetarian friendly options at restaurants sometimes. Even something as simple as gravy. If it’s made with meat in any way, it’s not vegetarian lol. I’m happy they got it right and provided an option for us veggie friendly peeps. That biscuit was SO buttery and good. Adding a scrambled egg on top just gave it that next step up that it needed.

Snooze an AM Eatery

IMG_20181017_070304_362

I loved the bright colors and retro diner style of the restaurant. They have unique seating outside of the traditional tables. They have circle seating available for big parties. It’s perfect because everyone can see one another and not feel left out of the conversation.

Things to know…

  1. No reservations can be made in advance. You have to wait in line like everybody
  2. They close at 2 pm. Again, don’t get caught up and miss out on this great food by showing up late. They will be closed.
  3. Minor need to know, but it helps if you are particular about food. Snooze changes their jelly choices each day. So if you are a die hard grape or strawberry fan, you may need to branch out if they don’t have it. I liked that change up because it doesn’t get boring and you can try something new.

Favorite Dish

3 Egg Omelet or Scramble

Farm fresh eggs with a choice of three fillings served with hash browns and choice of toast or tortillas **Tofu scramble option as well**.

  • This omelet was perfect. You get to chose whatever toppings you want to have in your omelet. There is a limit to the number of toppings you can add in for free. I believe it’s 3 free options and then an additional cost after, but who needs more than 3 in an omelet?I also liked the options in toast. That sounds petty lol, but I like to have more than a white or wheat bread option and they offered some many. I opted for my favorite, Sourdough bread.

If you have any suggestions on some great restaurants to try in Denver, leave a comment below. I love interacting with my Foxies. As usual, follow me on Instagram for daily posts and updates, @foxyveggies.

Stay Foxy!

Foodie Friday: Taco Ocho Review

Happy Foodie Friday! I’ve been gone for a week with my Denver trip, but I’m finally back. So many great reviews to come! I will even have a post about my trip to Denver.

This week, I wanted to feature this cool, hidden gem in Richardson, TX. If you are near the area or don’t mind making the trip for some good tacos, Taco Ocho is the place for you.

The thing that sold me the most about this restaurant was that half of the menu was catered to Vegans and Vegetarians! Yes, we finally have a place where people get us at a regular establishment lol. On top of that the food was freshly made to order.

Fan Favorites

The Yucatan and Caribbean Taco Plate that comes with rice and beans. The plate was only $10!

  • Yucatan Taco: comes with roasted potatoes, poblanos, corn, red onions, black bean spread, sour cream, cotija cheese. The potatoes helps to offset the heat.
  • Caribbean Taco: comes with Plantains, black bean spread, rice, salsa, shredded lettuce, sour cream

Queso & Chips

  • This queso is not a boring queso. It has little surprises as you keep digging in. You may get some onions, you may get some tomato, and it’s a white queso and not the golden hue we’re used to. I love a blanco queso. Every version I’ve had, it’s been good.

Hand-hacked Hass Avocado Guacamole and Chips

  • You may not know, but guacamole is the best in my eyes! I can eat it and just plain avocados every single day on everything lol. Their guacamole in particular I can picture on everything. It’s fresh and seasoned. That’s key!

All I can say is, you can enjoy a meal for two for around $25 and it will include appetizers galore. Take a look at their menu and give them a try.

Stay Foxy!

Tis the season, it is feeling like Fall in Dallas this week. It made me want comfort food and to be snuggled in a blanket the entire week lol. I started thinking about how good Chicken and Dumplings used to be growing up. My Grandy and my aunts would make it on cold days back home in Milwaukee. Then I began to think about it, I haven’t had it in years. The question then became, how can I make this veggie friendly? I got the creative juices going and here we are with my Chick’n & Dumplings recipe. Check it out below! Let me know what you think. Like, Share, and Show some love in the comments.

Foodie Friday: Roti Modern Mediterranean

Hi Foxy People!

I always get excited for these posts. It lets me know that Friday is here and the weekend can begin! This week, I’m highlighting a newer restaurant called, Roti Modern Mediterranean.

A little piece of Chicago landed her in Dallas! I first heard of Roti when I was working in downtown Chicago. It was this cute, fresh, and new restaurant tucked away in the heart of the city. The food was always good and did not disappoint. It also left me feeling light and satisfied. In my work at the time, I was always on my feet running around in commissioned sales. You needed food for fuel, not to make you drag. The food here left me feeling refueled and energized.

Fast forward to now, I’m walking with a coworker for our 15 minute break and we get approached by a young man handing out free entree vouchers. I took a look and it was to Roti! What are the odds? I believe everyone driving and walking in that area could hear my excitement lol. We decided to give it a try that day. It was just as good as I remembered!

The menu is simple. You choose your base, which is either the Rice Plate, Laffa Wrap, Pita Sandwich, or Roti Salad. Then customize it with a protein such as Chicken Roti, Salmon Kabob, or Falaffel just to name a few. Then chose your sides to top it with like Tomato and Cucumber Salad, Hummus, Couscous, or Red Cabbage Slaw. Then you finish with your sauce. They have a variety. My favorite two that I like to add on my order are the Dill, Yogurt, & Cucumber sauce and the Garlic Sauce.

Check this place out when you’re venturing downtown in Dallas off of McKinney!

Foodie Friday: 3 Favs in Lower Greenville

Hey Foxy People!

We made it to Week 3 of Foodie Friday and in honor of that, I figured we could highlight 3 of my favorite places to eat in Lower Greenville. The Lower Greenville area is a hipster’s dream lol. It’s a little pocket of eclectic bars, clothing stores, grocery stores, and restaurants. I like that area because despite the attention it gets, it still has more lowkey and chill vibes. My top 3 choices will cover all your bases! Crisp Salad Company gives you a great make your own salad option. Laurel Tavern caters to a variety of meat and meatless based burgers. Truck Yard is a staple that not only has it’s own kitchen, but has multiple food trucks that come so you can enjoy any cuisine you may be craving. For some of my favorite foods at each of these locations, check out the reviews below!

Crisp Salad Company

http://www.crispsaladco.com/

20180909_171354

Open Monday – Sunday from 11 am to 9 pm, Crisp Salad Company gives you all the various options to make a filling salad. It was nice during the summer and of course our fall times feel like summer so it will still hit the spot lol. They offer the Greenville Cobb Salad if you want an updated version of a Cobb Salad. It comes with herb grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, the traditional hard boiled egg, grape tomatoes, onion, avocado, maytag blue cheese, bacon, and it’s tossed with a cider dijon vinaigrette. For us Veggie based eaters, they have The Chickpea Salad  which is made of crispy falafel, chickpeas (obviously), sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red bell peppers, and tossed with a refreshing lemon tahini dressing. If these salads don’t work for you, there is always the build-your-own salad option. Win-Win either way!

Laurel Tavern

https://www.laureltavern.com/

20180909_171528A nice hot spot where you can enjoy the front patio during this nice fall weather. Laurel Tavern does cater to this seeking good bar fare such as shared plates and sandwiches, but the best thing they have are the burgers! My favorite is the Tavern Burger. You can get the normal beef patty or swap it out with the infamous, Impossible Burger patty. The patty is topped with honey mustard, avocado, pickled red onion, and shredded lettuce. Check them out!

 

 

 

Truck Yard

https://truckyarddallas.com/

20180909_171125The Truck Yard is a staple in Lower Greenville! It is the best if your just trying to have a good time with a few people and some drinks. It’s very lowkey and I love that they carry the “truck yard” theme throughout the restaurant. There is a kitchen area where you can order cheesesteaks and even veggie cheesesteakes! Then you have the choice to hang out in the bar area or venture further out to the yard where they have all the food trucks. My favorite truck is Azucar. I LOVE their Veggie Street Tacos made with refried black beans, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheese, salsa, crema!

Foodie Friday: Knife Burger

Hi Foxy People!

It is week 2 of Foodie Friday and if you enjoyed last week’s review, you will definitely love this one. I had the luxury of finally eating at Knife Burger inside Legacy Hall. I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I was I figured it would be tasty. This is one of Executive Chef, John Tesar’s restaurants. You may know him because he is the Executive Chef and owner of Knife. I love that he decided to have a sister restaurant that is more fun and casual with burgers since Knife is an upscale steakhouse.

Screenshot_20180906-212133_Instagram

When you walk up to the counter, you see a simple and straight forward board that features their menu. I like that they get straight to the point with their offerings. There are 5 kinds of burgers that they specialize in.

  • “The Ozersky” – gives you your classic cheeseburger vibes. It’s your beef patty, american cheese, red onion, and white bun.
  • “The Double” – gives you twice the fun of “The Ozersky.”
  • “The Magic” – provides a different spin on the burger by swapping out the typical bun with an English muffin. What makes that burger so special is that it comes with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and bacon.
  • “The Pimento” – gives you all the Texas pimento cheese dip or sandwich vibes on a burger.
  • “The Veggie” – the best burger on the menu in my opinion lol. It’s a veggie patty with lettuce, tomato, red onion, and sprouts between a white bun.

The veggie burger was deceiving because I didn’t expect it to be as great as it tasted based on it’s appearance. It appeared it may have been slightly dry, but when I tasted it, I had a bite of a juicy, meat-like patty. I must admit, it was one of the best veggie burgers I’ve had in the DFW.

Other foods that they offer…

  • “Knife” Fries – fresh and hot to order fries.
  • Handmade Shakes – Chocolate Hazelnut, Cookie Butter, Pistachio, Strawberry, and Vanilla. The cookie butter one sounds amazing!

Overall, I truly enjoyed coming here! You can sit at the bar top area or out in the open at Legacy Hall. The staff was great and I loved the chill vibes. I will be back soon!

It’s Foodie Friday! Each Friday, I’ll be highlighting a local restaurant in the DFW on my blog. This week, I’m talking about my experience @knifeburger. Check out the full story via the link in my bio 💚 #vegetarian #chef #browngirlbloggers #foodies #bestfooddallas

Foodie Friday: Pie Tap Pizza Workshop + Bar – Oak Lawn Location

Hi Foxy People!

It’s been a long time, but I am back!!! I started doing these “Foodie Friday” posts back in the day and thought it would be brilliant to revamp it and bring it back. “Foodie Friday” is a way for me to share my experiences at local restaurants as a vegetarian and I’ll throw in some of my recipes from time to time.

In honor of the first “Foodie Friday” post, I wanted to share my experience at Pie Tap Pizza Workshop + Bar!

I was in the mood for pizza one day and I kept hearing from friends about this place not too far from my place. I always drove past it, but never found the time to step in. That day was the day. From the moment I walked up to the location, I instantly knew I was going to love this place. The patio area was nice and had umbrellas to give you relief from this Texas sun. The inside gave me industrial meets modern vibes with the decor. There was a mixture of seating where you can sit communal style or cozy in tables for 2 or 4. I could get used to the laid back vibes here.

Now let’s talk about the food! All you smell is the fresh dough baking in the air. You see different varieties of pizza pies on the table tops as you pan over the space. I couldn’t wait to try their “Margherita” Pie. It has organic tomato sauce, house mozzarella, basil, and sea salt. Simple ingredients that make a BOMB pizza. I literally had the whole pie to myself and ate the entire thing. That’s how good it was lol. I was happy to see that this wasn’t the only veggie friendly thing on the menu. They do offer a “Veggie” pie as well that is topped with eggplant, broccolini, fontina, calabrian peppers, garlic, and lemon zest. There are salad options, garlic knots, and hummus as well. They offer these dipping sauces for your pizza too. Their “Organic Marinara” was good, but the “House Ricotta Ranch” changed the game! It was the best ranch I ever had. I had the pleasure of trying the “House-made Doughnuts” and they were warm and fluffy. It’s like eating a sweet treat from home. I washed everything down with their “Crackberry Cider.” I am not a beer drinker. Let me repeat, I am not a beer drinker. This “Crackberry Cider”, changed my outlook on beer. It was so good! I loved the sweet berry notes and it was refreshing.

Overall, I loved “Pie Tap Pizza Workshop + Bar” and I will be frequently visiting. It’s veggie friendly while offering traditional meat fare for the rest of the family.

Check out their menu for yourself below.

Happy National Eggs Benedict Day!

Hey Foxy People!

It’s National Eggs Benedict Day!

Want to be fancy and max this yourself at home? Check out my recipe for Hollandaise Sauce below so you can be a STAR when you host a brunch again.

As always, follow me on Instagram @foxyveggies And on Twitter @foxy_veggies.

Stay Foxy!

Hollandaise Sauce

Ingredients

  • 4-6 oz. of Clarified Butter
  • 2 Large Egg Yolks
  • 1 tbsp of Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • Salt and Cayenne Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. If you would like to clarify your own butter, all you have to do is take 1 pound of Unsalted Butter and allow it to melt on low heat. As the butter melts, the pure butter fat will separate from the milk fat. The milk fat is a white film that will rise to the too. Skim it off frequently. Allow this to melt for about an hour giving the butter time to separate the water, butter fat, and milk fat. Once the milk fat is all skimmed off, drain off the butter fat making sure the water at the bottom doesn’t mix in.
  2. If you don’t want to take these steps to make your own clarified butter don’t fret, you can buy some online via this link https://www.amazon.com/Trader-Joes-Clarified-Butter-Ghee/dp/B00G12Z36W
  3. If you freshly made your own clarified butter, sit it aside and allow it to cool off a little until it’s warm. If you purchased clarified butter, heat up your 4-6 oz I’m the microwave for about 20 seconds
  4. Take a small pot and fill it with water. Put it on medium heat.
  5. In a little bowl, separate your egg yolks from their egg whites. If you want, you can save your egg whites for an egg whites scramble or omelette the next day. We need to bring them to room temperature.
  6. Once the water simmers, place your egg yolks in a bowl and place it over the pot. Start to whisk your egg yolks until they start to turn to a lighter yellow color almost a pale yellow.
  7. Take the bowl off of the heat, place a towel underneath it, and add the lemon juice to the mix.
  8. Whisk the lemon juice until it’s fully mixed in then begin to slowly drizzle in your clarified butter. You have to whisk with one hand while you drizzle the butter in with the other.
  9. You’ll know it’s ready when all the butter is mixed in and you’re left with a a creamy sauce.
  10. Finish the sauce with salt and cayenne pepper.
  11. Enjoy!

Sunday Post: Sage Brown “Butter” Sauce

Hi Foxy People!

I was in the mood for some ravioli, so I decided to share my Sage Brown “Butter” recipe!

This recipe is super simple and you can pretty much put this on any pasta. Oh…and it’s Vegan! I don’t make Vegan recipes often, but this is pretty good.  I easily swap out the butter and use the whipped Vegan spread instead.

Let me know what you think! Also, make sure to follow me throughout the week on my Facebook Page, Foxy Veggies, on Instagram @foxyveggies, and Twitter @foxy_veggies.

Stay Foxy!

Sage Brown “Butter” Sauce

Ingredients

  • Pasta of your choice or Ravioli of your choice
  • 5 tbsp of Organic Vegan Whipped Spread
  • 7 fresh Sage leaves

Directions

  1. Follow the directions for cooking your pasta.
  2. As the pasta is cooking, take a small pot and turn it to medium heat. Add in your Vegan spread and turn the heat down to low.
  3. Allow your spread to melt. There may be foam that rises to the top. Skim this off with a spoon and discard of it. This process will take about 5 minutes.
  4. Once the majority of the foam is removed, add in the sage leaves and stir it around. Allow the sage to steep in the vegan spread for an additional 5 minutes.
  5. Enjoy!

Vegetarian Soul Food Cooking Class

Photo Op: Slaying in the Country

Hi Foxy People!

I must admit, it has been a few weeks since I last posted. I hope you have been keeping up with my adventures on my Instagram account. If not, check it out @foxyveggies.

Let’s talk about these adventures! Between family visiting, events, and birthday celebrations for friends, I feel like October has been my busiest month to date lol. In the midst of all of this, I was blessed with a really cool opportunity to shine with some Black Women who are making their mark in the Dallas Blogger Community.

Melody, Blingaholic88, reached out to me regarding her annual, girl power focused photoshoot. She chooses a different theme each year. This year’s theme was, “Slaying in the Country” and we did just that! I had the pleasure of slaying with some really cool chicks. Brittany “Bri”, Kenya, Melody, and Tanika who all run their own blogs here in Dallas. Their blogs range from Fashion to Music to Lifestyle.

Check out these ladies and our beautiful pics!

Stay Foxy!

Austin Girls Trip

Hi Foxy People!

I know you guys saw my posts on Instagram about Austin. I wanted to do a post with more details about my girls trip.

Long story short, we had a great time! There was eating, shopping, eating…and did I mention we ate a lot? lol. That is pretty much our favorite way to pass the time.

For the shopping, we decided to go to South Congress. I think we could’ve stayed there the entire time. You didn’t really need to leave that area for anything. There was food, music, and shopping. All the essentials that us ladies like in any trip.

While we were there, I was able to try on my first pair of genuine cowgirl boots at Allens Boots. They had some Leopard booties I just had to try on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

That night, we went to 6th street. It was definitely a different vibe than Dallas. I don’t think I’ve seen a place where the entire street is blocked off for us to enjoy bars on each side of the street. It was nice. There was a good mix of bars that played good music. I love to dance, so that made my night.

The next morning, we went back to South Congress. We stopped by two very popular food trucks for breakfast. Mellizos Tacos, a taco food truck that had fresh tortillas for their Migas breakfast taco and Gourdough’s a donut food truck that had the best gourmet donut I’ve ever had! The Miss Shortcake was a bit sweet, but I enjoyed  the cream cheese and fresh strawberries. It is genius!

 

 

 

 

 

 

All in all, I had a good time in Austin. I would definitely go again.

Stay Foxy!

Sunday Post: Brunch at Meso Maya

Hi Foxy People!

Everyone loves brunch right? This is especially true on Sundays. Today, I had a girls brunch with my friends and we decided to give Meso Maya a try.

Meso Maya is located downtown off of McKinney Ave. It’s right by the Perot Museum. Our ultimate driver to this restaurant was their $3 mimosas! I know that sounds bad, but who doesn’t love mimosas? Lol I loved that they also offered vegetarian options. They received even more points in my book for that.

I opted for the Skinny Eggs on the Brunch menu. It was egg whites scrambled with spinach, mushrooms, and cheese. I suggest if you are vegan, you can customize it by asking for this item without cheese. The scramble was very good and flavorful. You always had enough room to enjoy an additional mimosa if you wanted to.

The final verdict…I will definitely be back with the girls! The patio area was nice, the staff was friendly, and the food and drinks were good. Check them out the next time you are in the mood for Authentic Mexican food. Their website is http://www.mesomaya.com/

Sunday Post: Hollandaise Sauce

Hi Foxy People!

Today I wanted to share a slightly fancy recipe that I think we all should have in our pocket. Let’s make Hollandaise Sauce! It’s our gateway to Eggs Benedict. This will make you stand out at all of the brunch parties.

I am featuring in the photo, steamed asparagus that I will lightly saute in clarified butter and season with salt and pepper and a poached egg.

If you would like me to do a step by step recipe on a poached egg, comment below and let me know.

As always, follow me on Instagram @foxyveggies And on Twitter @foxy_veggies.

Stay Foxy!

Hollandaise Sauce

Ingredients

  • 4-6 oz. of Clarified Butter
  • 2 Large Egg Yolks
  • 1 tbsp of Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • Salt and Cayenne Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. If you would like to clarify your own butter, all you have to do is take 1 pound of Unsalted Butter and allow it to melt on low heat. As the butter melts, the pure butter fat will separate from the milk fat. The milk fat is a white film that will rise to the too. Skim it off frequently. Allow this to melt for about an hour giving the butter time to separate the water, butter fat, and milk fat. Once the milk fat is all skimmed off, drain off the butter fat making sure the water at the bottom doesn’t mix in.
  2. If you don’t want to take these steps to make your own clarified butter don’t fret, you can buy some online via this link https://www.amazon.com/Trader-Joes-Clarified-Butter-Ghee/dp/B00G12Z36W
  3. If you freshly made your own clarified butter, sit it aside and allow it to cool off a little until it’s warm. If you purchased clarified butter, heat up your 4-6 oz I’m the microwave for about 20 seconds
  4. Take a small pot and fill it with water. Put it on medium heat.
  5. In a little bowl, separate your egg yolks from their egg whites. If you want, you can save your egg whites for an egg whites scramble or omelette the next day. We need to bring them to room temperature.
  6. Once the water simmers, place your egg yolks in a bowl and place it over the pot. Start to whisk your egg yolks until they start to turn to a lighter yellow color almost a pale yellow.
  7. Take the bowl off of the heat, place a towel underneath it, and add the lemon juice to the mix.
  8. Whisk the lemon juice until it’s fully mixed in then begin to slowly drizzle in your clarified butter. You have to whisk with one hand while you drizzle the butter in with the other.
  9. You’ll know it’s ready when all the butter is mixed in and you’re left with a a creamy sauce.
  10. Finish the sauce with salt and cayenne pepper.
  11. Enjoy!

Sunday Post: What is Vegetarianism?

Hey Foxy People!

I hope you are having a beautiful Sunday. My post today will not be focused on a recipe, but it will pose as more of an educational post.

Every day I am asked about Vegetarianism and what it actually means. Sometimes it is confused with Veganism or Pescatarianism. Today, I wanted to explain the differences between each of them and show how the diets vary.

I have the breakdown and definitions below. A major perk of being in Culinary School is learning about all of these diets in a more in depth manor. Some of these definitions can be found in the book, “On Cooking: A Textbook of Culinary Fundamentals” the 5th Edition by Sarah R. Labensky, Alan M. Hause, and Priscilla A Martel. Others may be from my general knowledge.

As always, please feel free to comment below. Let me know if these breakdowns were helpful.

Make sure to follow me on here and on Instagram @foxyveggies.

Stay Foxy!

Vegetarian: a plant based diet which excludes the consumption of meat. There are three major levels of vegetarianism.

  1. Ovo-vegetarian– a vegetarian who eats eggs but not dairy products.
  2. Ovo-lacto vegetarian or lacto-ovo-vegetarian: a person who eats plants products as well as dairy products and eggs (although some may not eat cheeses made with animal-based enzymes such as rennet, or eggs produced by factory farms.) This is the diet that I follow 🙂
  3. Lacto-vegetarian: a vegetarian who eats dairy products but not eggs.

Vegan: a person who eats no meat, fish or poultry or any products derived from animals such as milk, cheese, eggs, honey or gelatin; also referred to as a “strict” or “pure vegetarian.”

Pescatarian: a person who follows a fish or seafood based diet. They typically stray away from meat and poultry.
