The Kitchenista Diaries features affordable dishes that rely on fresh local ingredients. The gorgeous pictures make you want to try something different to see if the seared jerk talapia with grilled pineapple and sweet pepper salsa tastes as good as it looks.

Urban Swank included an encyclopedic coverage of the food experiences of Houston, including a soul food series featuring reviews of oxtails and pork chops along with their picks for Houston Restaurant Week.
