Sunday Funday brunch lunch!

Happy Sunday! Last week, my boyfriend and I enjoyed lunch at the famous Boots & Kimo’s in Kailua. It’s a breakfast/brunch/lunch place that closes by 3pm every day, except Tuesday.

Tons of Japanese tourists line up outside to eat there. They are known for their macadamia nut pancakes. Yummy!

We shared the banana mac nut pancakes, which was awesomely delicious. Banana pancakes are my ultimate favorite! We did not need to pour syrup over the hotcakes. The sauce was enough! I ordered Grandma’s own hamburger steak recipe breakfast with eggs (over-easy) and rice. Oh, it was so good! I always enjoy trying different “homemade” hamburger steaks. The taste is so satisfying! Makes me want to make some in my kitchen. Can’t beat homemade hamburger!


Have a wonderful new week!

Pancake love!

I sent my dear friend, who lives on the West Coast, some goodies from Hawaii for Christmas and she shared this photo. She made these yummy taro macadamia nut pancakes from the mix I got her. Looks delish! I love taro- that’s how poi (a Hawaiian staple) is made from. I found an article with interesting health facts about taro:

Macadamia nuts are very popular in Hawaii. It’s like gold here. As most nuts are healthy, here is what macadamia nuts are good for:

When I was growing up, I remember Taro Brandยฎ for their poi and chop suey mix. Now, they’ve expanded and make a variety of different products, such as pancake mixes. Visit their website to order:
