Butter Rum Cake Bites

These super simple pretty-on-the-plate party-in-your-mouth cake bites make a great gift presented on a festive platter and wrapped in cellophane with a bow. The original rum cake recipe was shared with me by my Bluebird leader Karyl Viste many years ago. Thanks, Karyl.


Momofuku Spicy Ramen at Home

The Spicy Pork Ramen I devoured at Momofuku while in New York in September was hands down the most flavorful party-in-my-mouth ramen experience ever. You can imagine my excitement when my brother Kelly told me Momofuku ramen noodles were available on amazon! I could hardly wait for them to arrive, so I could get into the kitchen and create a ramen riff of my own to share with all of you. Enjoy!

Pineapple Upside Down Mini Bundts

These decadent Pineapple Upside Down Mini Bundts are my riff on the Pineapple Upside Down perfection we enjoyed at the Eating House 1849 by Roy Yamaguchi during our recent Girls Trip 2023. The sour cream in the cake batter keeps the crumb magically moist, and sprinkling the macadamia nut crumble on top of the mini bundts just before baking adds a delightful nutty crunch surprise on the bottom. See what I did there? Upside down. haha. Enjoy!


Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken Burgers to Love!

This Kikkoman Teriyaki-marinated chicken breast topped with grilled sweet onion and pineapple drizzled with additional teriyaki sauce and sandwiched between super soft Hawaiian hamburger buns brought back such sweet memories of my recent GT2023 to Kauai. Mahalo for the inspo, Delta Darlings. Sure hope you all enjoy this terrific taste of Hawaii, my friends!
