Split It: How To Share Treats

By | Apartments, Drinks, Food, Renting, Roommates

Photo Cred If you’ve ever googled, “How to share a kitchen with your roommate”, you probably read articles on sharing chores. Not many of these articles talk about the most important part – treats. From sharing food, to cooking food, we’re breaking down the top three kitchen rules for roommates when it comes to food and sharing it. 1. Roommate food sharing list Photo Cred It may seem petty, but creating a roommate food sharing list is a total must. This is a list of kitchen treats that are shareable between all in the apartment. Things not included in this list are clearly off limits. If this is unclear for some reason, create a separate, “Do Not Touch” list. Place these lists on the fridge and pantry. While labeling your items help, having a “Sorry I Touched It” money jar can help you and your roommates stay accountable during times temptation takes over. 2. Roommate cooking schedule Photo Cred One chef in the kitchen is great, two chefs in the kitchen can start to feel claustrophobic and we all know what they say about threes. Scheduling or asking for meal prep/cooking time in the kitchen can help reduce many kitchen catastrophes. 3. Sharing a fridge with roommates Photo Cred This may be the most important rule of them all. Considered the holy place for all things cold and stored, the fridge. Remember these three things when it comes to sharing the fridge. If it smells foul, throw it away. If it’s…

But First, Brunch.

By | Food, Houston

Houstonians know how to have fun. So it’s no surprise that whatever late night party you’re attending will probably turn into a morning brunch. With so many fab choices in the city, finding your fave brunch spot can be tough. We got you, fam. Brunch is basically our favorite hobby. At the risk of overwhelming you with awesome-ness, here are just a FEW of our fave spots for brunchin’ around Houston. Max’s Wine Dive Not only is this place the bomb dot com to wine and dine at in the evening (Seriously, sipping wine on their covered patio while it rains? It doesn’t get more Houston than that.), it’s one of our favorite spots to brunch. Spiced Apple French Toast, Shrimp Breakfast Tacos, and the Fried Egg Sandwich are just a few of their specialties you absolutely have to try. Max’s also looks out for your health by offering bloody mary’s and build-your-own mimosas to combat that hangover headache. What could go wrong? Image Source Montrose: 214 Fairview St. Weights + Measures Instagrams ready, please. This restaurant/bakery/bar is honestly the cutest with industrial warehouse vibes. Forget the dream of owning a home, millennials, and indulge in some of Weights + Measures’ avocado toast. House smoked salmon and a daily omelette are also on the menu which you can pair with a glass of prosecco. Cheers! Image Source Midtown: 2808 Caroline St. Hearsay Cancel all plans for Sunday morning for the rest of the year. Hearsay has $12 bottomless mimosas. This chic brunch spot is…
