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.




Indian at home!

I was at Costco the other day and saw this on the shelf! I’ve always wanted to try this. Ended up having this for dinner! It was absolutely delicious! Tasted like the cuisine at the restaurant.


I saw this while I was there at Costco, too, and thought it would go perfect with the curry. I think this is a new item. Never seen this before.



Bam! This rice was awesome, but DON’T follow the directions on the pouch. It comes out super mushy. I like my rice on the drier side. I had to make a second batch and added less water. The outcome was so much better.


Hmm, mixed veggies! Green beans, brussel sprouts, and purple onions. Seasoned with olive oil, garlic/Hawaiian salt, and pepper.


I added some purple onions to the curry mix. Mmmm! Added to the touch!

Get your lamb special!

Earlier this week, my bf and I dined at the Cattle Company Steakhouse (aka Black Angus Steakhouse). I love it there. Their food is always scrumptious and it’s such a great deal! I ordered the (half-rack) lamb chop special.! It was to-die-for! The chops were so juicy and that mint chimichurri sauce was an amazing pair with the meat. I’m not too much of a mint fan, but that sauce was killer!! I have to try making it. It so reminded me of fresh pesto sauce. Yum!

These recipes looks very simple: &

I’m going to try this next time I make lamb at home. I’m excited!

I hope they add this to their main menu! It was such a great deal, and so, so delicious!

Happy Thursday!

Once a parent, always a parent =D

Once a parent, always a parent! So true. The other week, my dad was so sweet to make a pan of hamburger-macaroni with Alfredo sauce, topped with three different cheeses (Swiss, American, and Parmesan) to take back to my house. It was so good! I always enjoy my dad’s cooking.


I prepared a side dish of fresh green beans to go with the mac and cheese. I love my beans. I cooked it with balsamic vinegar and roasted garlic olive oil. Seasoned with pepper and garlic salt. Yum!

Home-cooked meals are the best!! Have a great rest of the week. It’s almost Friday!!! Yay!
