Merry Christmas Eve- a perfect posting for the season!

Merry Christmas Eve and Happy Sunday! Almost two months ago, one of my dear friends got married at her dad’s cabin on the lake in Minnesota. We had a lovely, delicious dinner amongst family that I wanted to share. Perfect for the Christmas season.


On her wedding evening, we had prime rib, with homemade mash, green beans, carrots, and sauteed mushrooms. Yummy! That piece of meat was HUGE! I tried my best to finish it all, but couldn’t. I was way too full. Too bad I couldn’t bring it home as leftovers to finish. Haha, back home to Hawaii.


Carrot cake for dessert/their wedding cake! Yummy! Haven’t had carrot cake in so long!

What a coincidence, tomorrow we will be having prime rib for our Christmas dinner. Can’t wait! Be sure to lookout for another posting of that soon.

Have a beautiful Christmas with your loved ones. It’s my most favorite time of the year to celebrate with family.




The famous pies are back!

Happy Christmas Eve! Man, is it Christmas again already? Where did December go? It seemed like only yesterday when the month began and now we’re almost through with the year! My, my! I really can’t believe how quickly the holidays flew by. I do hope y’all are having a wonderful Christmas season. It has been tough “soaking” it all in, due to being so crazy busy. Hence, the MIA for a while…

Today, I was busy in the kitchen making dessert. Decided to make my famous tofu-jello pies for Christmas again, with the cream cheese. Apparently, I didn’t remember that I experimented and added cream cheese to last year’s pies, haha! These pies are the best! They’re so light and refreshing. We always enjoying eating them.


The ingredients. I whipped my own whipped cream, instead of using Cool Whip. I find it healthier- haha!


Trying this gluten-free pie crust on the right. Hope it’s good! Sounds very healthy.


Bam! My two favorite jello flavors!

I also made homemade frozen yogurt, using plain yogurt and fresh frozen strawberries and bananas. I also added some agave for some sweetness.

Now… what to make for New Year’s… Hmmm!!!

Merry Christmas! Happy Birthday, Jesus!

Eat, drink (responsibly) laugh, love, and be merry!

Be merry, be festive!!

Merry Christmas, All!! Have a wonderful day!!

Yesterday, I made holly cornflake cookies for our Christmas celebrations. It’s one of my favorite cookies during this favorite time of year. It’s also very simple to make- does not require any baking!!

Here’s what you need to make your own holly cookies:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon green food coloring
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 cups corn flakes cereal
  • 1/2 cup butter (I used unsalted)
  • One bag of marshmallow
  • Red candy (for berries) (I used M&Ms)
  1. On low heat, melt food coloring, vanilla extract, butter, and marshmallows until smooth.
  2. Slowly add the cereal after.
  3. Drip spoonfuls on wax paper and decorate with red candy.
  4. Set aside to cool.

Enjoy and happy “baking!”
