Pink drink calling!

Happy Father’s Day! Hope all you fathers, grandfathers, and uncles had a marvelous day!

Later this week, be on the lookout for a Father’s Day dish posting that I made tonight. It’s going to be great! We had a wonderful celebration!

Over the weekend, I finally tried “The Pink Drink.” It was staring at me, calling me to try it. I’ve heard of the drink before and had been curious to try it one day. That day had come, haha!

Some time ago, I downloaded a free app onto my smart phone, called “Secret Free.” It has the 411 of all the different “secret” drinks at Starbucks. Oooh, la la! According to the app, “The Pink Drink” is rated 4.5/5 stars and consists of: the strawberry açai refresher drink with coconut milk (instead of water), with dried strawberries. It was a pretty good drink! I like the açai refresher drink. I think it would be just as good without the dried strawberries, though! I’m looking forward to utilizing the app more and trying other “secret” drinks. Some of them are very creative.

Here is a website I found on the different “secret” drinks at our famous coffee joint!

Peanut butter smoothies for International Women’s Day!

Happy International Women’s Day! Today’s review is on peanut butter smoothies. Yum! It’s my new love when it comes to smoothies. I’ve been craving it so much lately.

Last week, I went to Extract Juice Bar in Downtown and ordered one of my favorite drinks from there: Peanut Butter Jelly Time. The smoothie consisted of: peanut butter, bananas, strawberries, and grapes. Yummy! I drank it so quickly. It was so good! Cravings satisfied! Ah!

The next day that same week, I was craving peanut butter smoothies again and decided to make my own. Haha! I had some frozen bananas in the freezer and decided to make use of them.

Bam! Bello!

My specialty consisted of: ice, soy milk and Lactaid milk, frozen bananas, peanut butter, and grapes.

The grapes makes it so much better! Next time I have strawberries, I will definitely add those in. And maybe some blueberries, too. Haha! It’ll be awesome!

Cheers!

Happy Belated Girls’ Day! Girls’ Day was yesterday, 03/03. It’s a Japanese holiday also known as Doll’s Day, but it is known to be called Girls’ Day. Here’s an interesting local article about girls’ day.

I was surprised with a gift bag full of yummy Japanese snacks (featured picture). Can’t wait to try them all. I typically enjoy Japanese snacks, and the candies, too. So good!

Nisshido is located at 1095 Dillingham Blvd. 808-847-1244.

Goin’ bananas for these!

My boyfriend received these awesome and onolicious chocolate covered bananas for Christmas from my girlfriend and her husband. They were so good, I ate most of them! Haha! I need to get another box! They can be found at Nordstrom’s. I’m not sure if our local grocery stores carries this. I will be on the lookout!

These tasted very similar to Hawaiian Host’s Tropical Fruit Bites Milk Chocolate Bananas. Yummy! Chocolate covered bananas rock!

Ringing in 2016 with sashimi!!

Happy New Year!! Wishing my readers a very happy and successful one! Hope all had a wonderful New Years Eve celebration!

Last night, my boyfriend brought hamachi (aka yellowtail) sashimi to our New Years celebration. It was to die for! The fish was tasty and oily (aka fatty)! Not to mention, fresh! That’s the most important!

Sashimi is a Japanese delicacy where the raw fish is sliced into thin pieces. It’s a popular dish during the holidays in Hawaii, especially New Years. Ahi sashimi is the most popular. Costco was loaded with ahi sashimi this past week. I like their sashimi- it’s onolicious!

Please be on the lookout for more postings in 2016! Be safe and happy eating!

Happy belated Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with loved ones. This year, I decided to make my first ever cranberry-blueberry sauce to go with our delicious turkey my dad cooked. I added blueberries, some OJ, and a hint of cinnamon to be creative and change up the traditional cranberry sauce recipe. It came out great! My family enjoyed it! This has been added to the annual Thanksgiving menu, along with my stuffing!!! Yay!

Food for thought: Blueberries and cranberries are high in antioxidants- whoo hoo! And did you know that cranberries bounce? How cool is that?!

Think pink!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Today, my boyfriend and I dined at Eggs n Things at the Ala Moana location, and found that they are donating $1.00 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation when customers order pink ribbon sprinkles on their dishes.

I ordered their french toast and added the sprinkles. It was so pretty!

I just love these sprinkles. So cute!

I know people dear to my heart who have passed away from breast cancer and who are survivors. Please support breast cancer research. I hope one day soon there will be a cure for cancer.

If you are interested in donating, please click on one of the two links below. There are also a couple walks happening this month.
