Blue Hawaii...a tasty dessert.

I don't really like to cook.
In fact, I'm really not known at all for my main courses.
However, I do enjoy making desserts.
Give me a bit of sugar and cream cheese and I'm a happy girl!
 
So, when I ran across this recipe,
I thought it would be a great share for my seemingly
"Hawaiian hangup"!
 

Blue Hawaii

 
6 oz raspberry Jello-O
1 c. boiling water
21 oz blueberry pie filling
8 oz crushed pineapple
8 oz cream cheese
1 c sour cream
1 c chopped pecans
1/2 c sugar
 
Dissolve Jell-O in 2 qt dish. Add pie filling and pineapple - refrigerate. Mix cream cheese, sour cream, nuts and sugar. Spread over top of 1st mixture and refrigerate.
 
 

 
This recipe is tried and true...no worries.
It's a favorite!

Chadwick...

 
I should be moving on, but I've had the Hawaii Five-O theme song playing in my head all day.
And, that brought to mind other shows that I've been drawn to as well.
Now, I'm not really an Elvis fan, but I do like to watch
Blue Hawaii.
Angela Lansbury just cracks me up in this scene.
She's talking to her son {Elvis} and her tone of voice in speaking his name is too funny!
"Chadwick...is that you?"
 
 
Now critics say this is her worst movie, but I think all these movies are just fun.
Just take a look.



Do you have a favorite Elvis movie?

Just a little trip...

 
I've always wanted to visit Hawaii.
I think it started when I was younger and
Hawaii Five-0 was on TV {the original.}
 
 
When the music came on,
I just wanted to get up and dance in my little lime green bikini!
{Oh, you know you had one too.}

Is your head just a boppin?
 Yep...mine too.
 
Now, I have family and friends who've visited, even lived there and I could always feel just a tinge of jealously as they were describing all their glorious adventures.
I've heard about the:
beaches
flowers
volcanos
sand
food - oh yeah the pineapple too!
and the prices.
 
But I figure, If I ever get the chance to go, I'm not going to worry about the price,
I'm just going to enjoy every second!
 
How about you?
Have you ever traveled to the islands?
If so, I'd love to hear all about your adventures!
I won't be jealous...well, maybe a bit.
 
Aloha!
 
 

 

New Direction...

Hi all!
I've been "stuck" as to how to move this blog forward...
 and I didn't want to abandon it.
However, I must admit, I got caught up with, "...keeping up with the Jones'..." type thinking.
With new and amazing blogs/websites hitting the web practically every second,
I decided to just keep it true to me...
So... 
I was on Pinterest the other day and ran across this Pin:
 
She's cute and oh so smart. So I decided to just tag along for the ride!
You're welcome to follow too!
