Look, if you know us, you know that we take our bacon-based cuisine really seriously. Whether it’s to go inside breakfast tacos or to supplement a bowl of granola, bacon is really an important staple in the BKTX diet. Whenever it comes to BLTs, Olivia is the master. She makes a truly sexy sa

Summer is hot and your drinks should be cold. Make some lavender lemonade, splash some gin in, and call it a day. Some of us are ending our jobs this week (Emily) and some of us have been funemployed for a few weeks now (Olivia). In any case, purple lemonade is a fast, easy way to get drunk

BKTX Explains How to Call Your Senator

Senate Republicans just released their secret bill to replace Obamacare and it allows states to drop coverage for maternity care, emergency services, and mental health treatment. If that makes you really mad, call your senator right now. Here's what you can say:
http://www.bktx.org/new-blog/2017/6/22/bktx-explains-how-to-call-your-senator

If there’s one thing I’ve learned this year, it’s that calling your reps is actually really important. Being from Texas, I always thought that it didn’t really matter, but then the first time I ever called my congressman it seemed to work. Remember in January the House was secretly going to pa

Finally, New York has emerged from under its soggy cloud and overnight has transformed into glorious summer! We’re so pumped to overdose on ice cream now that it’s finally hot enough to eat it (not that we didn’t eat a lot of ice cream this winter, but now we have even more of an excuse). One

Do you have a secret talent? This weekend, BKTX was invited to a talent party, where we’re supposed to perform stuff we’re good at doing. WTF?! Who has talents? We realize we’ve answered a version of this question before, and while menu ESP and a penchant for organizing brunches are perfectly

Earlier this week, Olivia sent me this link with no context, partly because it was so ridiculous it didn’t need any, and partly because almost exactly a year ago, we had an experience with Lil Yachty that we’re still trying to explain to ourselves. It was one of the most surreal evenings of my

My (Emily's) parents are not from Texas. The both grew up in places many thousands of miles away from Texas, in fact, and growing up, they encouraged my brother and me not to be overly influenced by Texas: for example, neither of us said "y'all" until we were in college. Despite

Last month, BKTX was lucky enough to go on vacation to London! We had a marvelous time full of double-decker-bus-selfies and offal (we tried oxtail and heart pie — eek!). By the end, we were waving “cheerio” and saying everything was “brilliant,” even though no one really said those things to

Happy Texas Independence Day, y’all! Yes, that is a real thing (so is the Texas Pledge of Allegiance, Texas is literally that crazy), but it’s pretty much just a good excuse to stuff your face with tasty Tex Mex. We’re celebrating this kooky holiday by wearing our cowboy boots and making migas

If you know us, you know that since we bumped into Amy Schumer last month we haven’t been able to stop talking about it. Not only have we been name dropping Amy like we’ve been buddies for years, that single encounter has inspired us to talk nonstop about every celebrity we’ve spotted, ever.

http://www.bktx.org/new-blog/2017/2/16/queso

Unlike breakfast tacos*, queso is a little easier to find in New York City. Over the last few years, queso became mainstream. It has been celebrated all over the news, and was the darling of sarcastic articles out of Texas in 2015; we remember seeing a headline in the Houston Chronicle “Tex-Mex ques...

With the president-elect's increasingly abysmal cabinet appointments and increasingly horrifying twitter spats (thanks, Alec Baldwin), BKTX still feels like throwing up and screaming every time we check the news. We're still angry and we're planning to stay angry for pretty much the next four years,...

One night a few weeks ago, Olivia and I (Emily) were at dinner with a friend post-happy hour. The subject of how we all knew each other came up, and Olivia explained that even though we did go to the same high school (the arts high school that Beyoncé went to, too), we didn’t really know each other…

This one is hearty, fruity, and comforting — perfect for a Thursday n...

We've written about barbecue on this site before, but it's true that it's less prevalent on this site than other Texas food gems like queso and breakfast tacos. The truth is, NYC can hold its own with a smoker. There's no room for hemming and hawing about how impossible it is to find good brisket ou...

Gilmore Girls + Ample Hills Creamery = BKTX dream come true

http://www.bktx.org/new-blog/2016/10/20/gilmore-girls

One of BKTX’s favorite guilty pleasures is binge watching Gilmore Girls. We each have separate, very long (SO MANY EPISODES), and very emotional relationships with this overzealous early 2000s show. When Olivia started watching the show for the first time a few years ago, she spiraled into an 8 mont...

Y’all, this week was rough. We don’t know about you, but we are struggling. On Tuesday, Emily was recovering from her second trip (of three) to the west coast in 30 days. For some reason, the three hour time difference feels so much harder to switch between than longer ones to Europe; combined with…

Is there any flavor more divisive than grape? You’re either the kind of person who always goes for the grape lollipop or snatches all of the purple Skittles from the bag, or you avoid it all. It’s Olivia’s least favorite flavor and she will avoid purple popsicle mouth at all costs. Emily thinks grap...

Pondicheri, one of our favorite restaurants in Houston, TX, has finally opened their New York City outpost for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In Houston, Pondicheri is our go-to for exciting brunches (the green masala chicken burger is a must) and, more importantly, one of the best bakeries in Housto...
