Was browsing through the drinks section @ Whole Foods and came across Bitch Bubbly! Hahha, it was too cute, so I had to take a pic of it. On the back of the label it reads, bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch etc…
We rarely eat dessert, but when we do, it’s got to be extra yummy!
Nice license plate buddy.
A new recipe I found on Thekitchn.com. I have yet to try it, but it sure looks yummy! Looks like I’ll have to make a trip to SM Seafood later this week. Or maybe I should save this one for Valentine’s Day!
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Williams Sonoma is offering heart shaped macarons on their website. A+ for presentation, however I’m not sure how they would taste. Here are my favorite picks:
#1 Bouchon Bakery
#2 Jin’s Patisserie
#3 Jerne @ Ritz Carlton MDR
I love, love, love animals, especially furry ones. I’m an avid reader of LATimes.com, and came across an article with lots of cute critters. Thought it would be nice to share my favs with you.

Day dreaming about the warm, sunny days, and summer-like days we had just weeks ago. Above is a beautiful photo of the sunsetting in Venice Beach, CA.
Okay okay, they didn’t take him, but they wanted more! During JP’s fabulous excursion to Osaka last year, he texted me frantically, talking about some crazy monkeys. I was a bit confused at first, but as the photos started pouring in, I began to scratch my head. Could JP be in danger? And, why is that monkey all up close and personal.
Turns out, JP & his friend were driving through Mino (Japan) and these monkeys are notorious for just hanging out. Like, literally hanging from peoples cars and lounging around on the road. It’s totally their stomping grounds. As they were driving through this area, a monkey jumped on the car and peeked inside. His friend said it was totally normal and that they just wanted food. Hehehehe. If I was there, I’d roll down the window and slap him (or her) with a banana! Or maybe that wouldn’t be a good idea, since it would attract the other monkeys to roll out and attack me (and the car). Either way, I wouldn’t let them mess with me or JP!
Love is, homemade Chicken Pot Pie.
If you’re interested in the recipe, drop me a msg! I’ll be happy to share.
Over the weekend, we took off for a fabulous road trip to Palm Dessert/Indian Wells for JP’s tennis matches. This was my 1st time back to the Palm Dessert area, every since I was a lil girl. Not knowing what to expect, I cleared my mind and made the best of our road trip together.
3 Targets, 2 Walmarts, 2 In N Outs, and 50 gazillion palm trees later, we finally made it to Palm Dessert. Oh yea, did I mention we stopped by Dessert Hills Outlet, where retail stuff goes to die the super popular place people rave and rant about for great deals?! We hopped off and quickly walked around the outlet, only to discover that we were bamboozled! If we can never find anything good @ Neiman Marcus or any other sales locally, then what in the world we were doing at the outlets?! I guess some people get lucky, and find something decent at these outlets. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good deal, but paying $800 for a lime green Prada bag is not my idea of a steal! I can see why it was tossed into the dessert, for touristas and deal hunters to go wild for. Any who, it’s definitely a spot you’d want to stop off, if you want to have some free time away from your in-laws or passengers in your car. haahhahah. You can keep them entertained for hours and hours!!!
24 hours later, we bounced and headed back home to LA. Indian Wells is definitely nice and every golfers dream, but it just didn’t have the craziness and spunk of LA. =)
Jp & I had to venture out to Rowland Heights/Diamond Bar area, and the traffic was horrendous on the way back. We stopped off @ JJ Bakery Cafe to grab a quick bite. I used to always to go the JJ Bakery in Irvine, but this was the 1st time dining @ the Cafe. We ordered up some small plates, and iced honey green tea.
Before ordering, I kindly asked the waitress, how many pieces were in each order. And, she replied 1 order 1 piece. So, JP & I placed our orders in and waited patiently. About 10 minutes later, plates and plates of food started coming out. We both looked really puzzled, as to why we had some much food. Did we really order that much?!
So, here’s what we ordered:
2 taiwanese burgers
2 beef rolls
1 simmered bean curd
1 spicy cucumber
1 sticky rice w/pork sung & chinese sausage
If 1 order, 1 piece were correct, we clearly wouldn’t have this much foooood! So, we were laughing and saw the workers glance over at us from time to time. I told JP that they were probably chuckling and placing bets on whether we could finish all that food. It was either that, or they thought we had just smoked out or something. Hahhaah. I guess JP should’ve busted out with his fine Mandarin skills.
Love, love, love, my new Breville juicer from Crate and Barrel. Every other day, I make fresh juice and keep it in the fridge for the next morning. Once you’re spoiled with the fresh taste, you’ll be reluctant to go back to bottled ones. Sorry, Naked…i’m totally cheating on you. =(
I always keep my fridge stocked with fresh OJ, apple, and carrot juice. My specialty is a blend of all 3, and it’s so delicious. Another favorite of mine from Eple (@ the Grove) is Apple Ginger. I’m going to have to try that at home next time.
I made a fresh batch to take with me over the wknd, but discovered that my internal calendar was totally off. I thought it was already Friday, but today is Thursday. So, I had to finish up the juices I made and packed for the weekend. =(
the instructions are in Japanese!!! So, it took some extra secret decoding to make almond jello today. I usually buy a different brand, but just grabbed whatever I could find @ Mitsuwa. First off, the instructions are in Japanese, and all I could do is go by the photos. Then, the measurements were in ml, not cups! Any who, the end result was delicious!
I ran across a cute Japanese gift boutique in Venice, and saw this awesome doggy butt mantle! The photos speak for themselves…
