Vegas Eats: The Black Sheep

I had the opportunity to dine at The Black Sheep, a modern Vietnamese fusion restaurant I’ve been eyeing for quite a while now. I came in expecting an amazing array of food on their menu, and let me tell you, they did not disappoint. In fact, The Black Sheep exceeded my expectations. The food was absolutely divine!Β 

I loved how everything on the menu had a bit of an Asian flair. They had melt-in-your-mouth pork belly, crispy Vietnamese imperial rolls, pickled vegetables, octopus in curry sauce, spicy tamarind chicken wings, and one of my personal favorites of the night, beef crisps (reminiscent of Filipino chicharrΓ³n)…. And the selection goes on.

Brunch Babes: Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro

I joined Style Collective a little over a month ago. If you’re not familiar, Style Collective is a community of boss babes empowering and inspiring other boss babes. It’s a girl boss tribe, and I’m completely in love with the community. It opened so many new friendships and networks for me. I never thought I’d meet so many Vegas bloggers who I look up to. And now, we brunch together.Β 

We had the pleasure of brunching at Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro at The Palazzo. Morels was one of the best brunches I’ve had so far, and I brunch with friends almost every week. The service was phenomenal, and we loved that our table was well taken care of. Constant refills on our drinks and incredible food. The turkey hash, bananas foster pancakes, and mushroom and gruyere crepe are personal favorites, and I’ll be coming back for them soon!Β

Eat: Capellini with Bacon & Peas

I was being a bum, laying around my bedroom in various positions while watching my favorite shows for hours, and I haven’tΒ ingested anything but a detox tea I drank earlier that morning. It was about 2 PM already, so I was so starved!Β This was literally the first time in a couple months that I finally had a day to myself (almost like the calm before the storm that will ensue later this month and into my birth month, June). Why am I always so busy then getΒ so bored on my one day off?!

How to Make Homemade Chili

I’m not all that big on super spicy chili since it always tasted a bit heavy to me, but I started to really get into it when I made this for Luke. I added a lot of spices and some fresh rosemary to lighten up the chili. Watch the video to learn how to make this amazing chili with crispy bacon, smoked kielbasa, and gruyere.Β

Japanese Chicken Curry Rice

Japanese Curry Rice is an absolute necessity in my life. I love all kinds of curry, but Japanese curry rice is the one that never fails to hit the spot because of the warm and comforting flavors of this dish. It holds a special place in my heart, and Luke’s in love with it, too. This version of Japanese curry is made with chicken breast because I wanted to show that not all Japanese curry is fattening and loaded with calories. You can substitute the meats with leaner cuts of chicken, beef, or pork, and it will all work out. Trust me. (Note: I’ll be making a Japanese Curry Rice recipe made from scratchΒ in the future, so stay tuned for that!)

Watch the video to see how I make this delicious and easy weeknight meal.Β
