Bring on 2018!

It’s almost 2018 in Hawai’i Nei! This year flew by so quickly, including tonight, New Year’s Eve! But I am ready to start fresh and begin a new year. I am grateful that we have an opportunity to start new again every January 1st. We can create new goals and improve ourselves. Be better than the previous year. I’m excited for what 2018 will bring us. It is going to be a great year.

We’re ringing in 2018 with these:

Mmm, mmm! Can’t wait to cheer with these awesome drinks! They’re non-alcoholic, too!

We had this moscato for dinner with my family. Not bad! The tropical passion fruit has a real kick to it!

Bam! Dessert for my bf’s family. Made a peanut butter ice cream pie. Was super simple!

Since I’m lactose, I tried this ice cream. Not bad! It’s rice-based. Interesting.

PB-Fit-30-1

And added a few scoops of this. Mmmm! I love PB! This powder is awesome!

I blended the softened ice cream, added the PB powder, and blended it all together. I poured the mixture in the graham crust and sprinkled walnuts on top before freezing it. So simple and quick! I think these ice cream pies will be my go-to desserts when I need a to make quick desserts.

I made the same pie for my family, but with soy ice cream. We’ll be having that tomorrow evening.

Wishing you and yours a prosperous 2018! Bring it on!!!

The “Newlywed Specialty Drink!”

My newlywed friends made an awesomely refreshing peach sangria just for their wedding reception this summer. It was so delicious!

Doesn’t this look amazing? It was so refreshing; I had four of these glasses- haha! Whoo!

I loved this drink so much. So much that I replicated it for my family’s bday celebration this past weekend.

It’s a very simple recipe.

Missing the Moscato wine bottle and the fruits, but you get the picture of what we need to make this bad boy 😉 Haha!

  • Peach sparkling water
  • Peach schnapps
  • Moscato wine (regular or pink)
  • Fresh or frozen peaches
  • Fresh or frozen berries (blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)

For my rendition, I used all of the above, including fresh fruits- white/yellow peaches, strawberries, and blackberries, and pink moscato. I’m a fresh fruits kind-of gal!

Bam!!! It was a hit! Tasted very close to the original.

Much thanks to the newlyweds and their wonderful creation! I can’t wait to experiment and make more kinds of sangrias soon!

Happy summer! Cheers!

Last Saturday night

Like Katy Perry’s song, “Last Friday Night,” let’s talk about last Saturday instead.

My boyfriend, sister, her boyfriend, and our cousin, chilled at Dave & Buster’s for a game night out together. It was a blast! So many good memories and laughs.

My sis and I ordered D&B’s new blue raspberry snow glowb drink. It looked super cool and I love Jolly Rancher®. The blue raspberry is one of my fave flavors. The drink wasn’t bad. Tasted like the candy. The syrup was mixed with Sprite®. I love that we got to keep the color-changing ice cube that made the drink glow. It also came with a color-changing straw, which I forgot to take home. Shucks! I was so surprised that this drink did not contain alcohol. I know, shocking, right?!?!

D&B’s has some pretty awesome drinks and new food items that I’d like to try the next time I return. Yea!!!
