If you know me… you know I like to have gatherings.. dinner gatherings to be specific. I thought I would share with you a a bit of those with you and some of the dishes I worked on while in Hawaii. By the way… a house on a gorgeous beach is the best place to have a gathering!
I mean… just look at that back porch! A cool ocean breeze and the sound of the crashing waves… perfection! Well…the people are pretty special too.
Lucky us… close friends from back home were in town the same time as us so of course we had them over for dinner!
Ok… on to all the food I made… well not maybe all but a lot of the food I made! This as many of you will recognize is not a new dish… but it sure is a good one! I made my quinoa super salad a couple of times and kept it in the fridge for lunch and snacking. This may be the perfect salad ever.
I bought these beautiful pork chops for the grill. I decided I needed to make a delicious sauce/ glaze to slather them in and boy did I come up with a winner! You bet these will be making a debut in one of my cooking classes soon!
Kimchee fried rice anyone?
Oh this… was a welcome surprise! I saw some hawaiian eggplant and decided to make a dish with it and man oh man was it good! Even the kids gobbled it up like it was going out of style.
Just a little broccoli salad with an avocado dressing.
This here is a Somen noodle dish that knocked our socks off!
I made a couple different desserts and for some reason I only have a picture of one of them. This is a Blackberry Pear cake. Yes… it was a good as it looks! I also made a delicious pumpkin cheesecake. Both need to be shared in my classes!
So there you have it! Some of the highlights of what I was cooking in the kitchen. Look for it coming soon to my kitchen!
