Many people go away for holidays. However, for many people, December is the month of visitors and house guests.  Having guests staying in the house can be stressful because of hospitality that needed to be provided for guests. Food is one of elements that can impress the guests. Therefore, planning on what to serve your guests in advance is essential. I recommend serving the food that can be prepared in advance and required short time to prepare before serving. Preparing some party food and freeze them in advance so that it can be heated and served when some friends drop by. By doing this, you will have time to dress up or chat with your guests. Isn't that great? Those food can also be delicious breakfast or afternoon snack for your in-house guests.  Let's prepare the menu for a cocktail party! :: Breakfast Impossibly easy mini  breakfast sausage pies  by  Betty Crocker This is such an easy gourmet breakfast for your guests that is easy to prepare ...

Hello everyone! Do you have any holiday plans for this coming December? I believe that many of you love to go to the beach like I do. I am working on travel related post featuring my beach holiday experience in Huahin & Cha-am, Thailand.  Don't forget to check back later for this fun post. While waiting for this post, Let's see some pictures from one of my beach holidays.  Last month I went to the beach with my family. We had such a relaxing time on the beach in my favorite hotel in Cha-am district located on the southern part of Thailand. And we also had so much fun taking photos for an outfit post in beach holiday theme for the guest post at Kitty & Buck. Thanks Shell for having me on your blog.   ...
Finally, I got time to write another post of holiday Series . Another task on my to-do list of preparation for the holiday month of December is making some ornaments for my Christmas tree.

The month of pumpkin has past. Even I have posted a pumpkin recipe during the past month. As I have seen on many of my favorite food blogs during the past month of halloween,  many pumpkin theme recipes on those blog inspired me to try many of them. So, I ended up buying so many pumpkins and butternut squash. As I result, I have several of them left.  Lately,  I have been quite busy with my work and my baby so I had to cook something that need less time to prepare and cook. After seeing me flipping  through my cookbooks, my husband told me that he wanted to eat Japanese curry. How did I miss that? This is a great great recipe that I can definitely use all my pumpkin and butternut squash. I can make a big pot of curry and the curry will be my dinner for a couple of days. Hooray!!! Japanese curry is a dish that require short time to prepare. Japanese curry has been long time favorite  dish that I have cooked for my husband since when we were dating back in college. In fac...
