Burgers @ Hyatt

May I take your order?



My Family was in the mood for burgers, so we went to Hyatt and had an angus burger and a mahi burger. This is the Mahi burger:













My husband ordered the Angus burger.


Both my kids ordered the Mahi-burger. Here is my son enjoying it!



I ordered the spaghetti bolongese. It was okay, I just have to say I expected more for Hyatt. This seemed like it came out of my kitchen, so either my cooking has improved or Hyatt has cut back on its taste and flavor of its spaghetti bolongese. For $14 a plate, I would rather order something else.



My niece's boyfriend Jeff was our waiter. Well, not exactly, but we are glad he was there.









I made this last week. It is called apigigi. Apigigi is young coconut grilled in banana leaves. This is delicious! I can just smell it right now!



We had BBQ lemai (Breadfruit). The outside is charred because it was thrown directly on hot flames. This is delicious with some butter and sugar.

HI

Hafa Adai my friends. It has been a while since I updated my blog. Life's been busy. Raising two teenagers is a task enough, let along the daily hustle and bustle that life throws at you. My baby girl turns 11years old tomorrow, and I do not know yet what kind of cake I am going to bake for her.

Okay, gotta go, but I will update the blog and add photo's soon.

Hafa Adai Bloggers!!
I have not ignored my blog, I just have not had much time to update it! I wish there was a mobile blog site to which I can upload photos, similar to what I do on facebook. Anyway, all is well here on Saipan, except that the political arena is getting hotter than ever! so intense...

In my world of food, I made banana cake last night, along with some fried banana's (madoya). I have baked, but sort of cut down on baking these past few weeks, but now that my housekeeper is back, I plan on getting back to my daily baking routines, since I don't have to wash the dishes.. :)

Okay, I will update this blog again soon. Stay safe everyone!

Happy Cultural Heritage Day

The CNMI celebrates Cultural Heritage Day today, October 12, 2009 while the rest of the world celebrate Columbus day. Go figure.

I am at home, with the kids and hubby. I made pot roast this morning and served it for lunch (simmered for like 6 hours, so it was nice and tender). I am making my first attempt at a italian dessert called penna cotta. In fact, one of the reasons why I like to go to Giovanni's at the Hyatt is for this dessert. It is so delicate but yet delicious. I cant wait to see how it turns out. Now, two things could happen when you make a delicious dessert that your family and friends like
1) your friends and family will continue to ask you to make the dessert
2) you will go broke continually buying ingredients... go figure..

LOL

Anyway, I will post more later. Take care CNMI and to my fellow bloggers!

Fresh Baked sweet bread

Thanks to my good friend Donna and the recipe she gave me, I made sweet bread AGAIN last night, it is just so heartwarming to smell freshly baked bread, baking at your house, the aromatic smell is better than any spray bottle you can buy!!! LOL..








On Saturday, I made a toffee bar, oh my goodness, this is also insanely delicious.... topped with walnuts, almonds and pecans, this was also quite on the expensive side, but I think well worth it!!


















Then it was chocolate cake. We were doing some work around the house and I felt that the workers helping me needed a great big chocolate cake to boost their energy, and they were so thrilled!















Okay, for the finale, I made KAHLUA PIE last night. My husband was all over this pie, oh my goodness!!! It is a cream pie and homemade cookie crusts. I wish I made more as I had to ration my sister when she came over last night!! I will make more next time, it is just that all my baking ingredients are taking a toll on my baking budget, or my budget for that matter!
