Tokyo Grill in Twentynine Palms

So this weekend we went to a great little place here in Twentynine Palms, Tokyo Grill. It just opened last month and was seriously the best Japanese restaurant I've been to here in the desert.

An adorable place with free Wi-Fi, owned by an American/ Japanese couple who lived in Japan for over ten years

The couple make all the food themselves and use authentic Japanese ingredients which gives it that taste that no other restaurant in the area can compete with... in my opinion!

Oh, and did I mention you can get fresh crepes?! where else are you going to find that here... and they are absolutely delicious by the way! Took me back to the top floor of Fuji Grand, you Iwakuni people know what I'm talking about! ;)
I highly recommend this place to anyone who misses Japan as much as I do, trust me, you will not leave disappointed! And for those of you that can not leave the base, they plan on delivering in the near future!

It's only about five minutes from the front gate MCAGCC.
When leaving from the front gate drive about four miles and make a right on Two Mile rd. make another right on Historic Plaza.

Cinnamon Tea

Cinnamon tea is something that very much reminds me of my mom. She used to make it for me all the time whenever I wasn't feeling well. It's so simple to make and so good for you how could you not love it?!

I make mine by just boiling two cups of water with two cinnamon sticks. Let the water boil for a few minutes and remove from heat. Serve with a teaspoon of honey.

Cinnamon has some really cool health benefits, it reduces blood sugar levels, helps with diabetes and even helps in the prevention of cancer. It has a ton of antioxidants and is a good source of fiber, calcium and iron! Helps relieve stomach pains, menstrual cramps and relaxes you.

I'm craving cinnamon tea now!

Make you own loaf of bread

Bread is so easy to make that when I learned how to make it I wondered why I ever bought it! I experimented for a long time with lots of different recipes and realized that bread is one of those things that you have to feel with your own hands and make it your own way, so many different things affect the final product, the humidity in your kitchen, how hot your oven really is, etc... so just use this as a guide and find out the perfect recipe for you.
Here's what I do:
