Hello and Welcome!


I LOVE TO COOK!  As a spouse of a retired Soldier, I’ve had the privilege of traveling to so many places and have met a lot of people with diverse ethnic backgrounds accompanied by different flair for cooking. My Chamorro roots and our Chamorro hospitality has always been linked to food, the meal itself, as well as the gathering of friends and family around a table. My passion to cook dates back since 8th grade collecting recipes, cookbooks, clippings, or just about anything with a recipe. Additional collection of cookbooks, were provided during my husband’s military travels to International countries.

To share my passion for cooking, my husband and family, to include friends for many years, have encouraged me to open a restaurant and write a cookbook.

Although still my dream to someday own a restaurant, I believe in the meantime, it would be much easier sharing my passion of cooking with the use of my blog. I wholeheartedly, in the blog, like to capture my contributions to the World of food and fun. In my blog, you will find a compilation of recipes and savory photos of foods I’ve prepared and created, to include some that I’ve created myself,  gathered from family and friends throughout the years, or have found  on the internet.  I’d love to share that experience here with you.

God has blessed me in so many ways and now this is my way to give back ~HAPPY COOKING!!

Please be patient, as my blog is still a work in progress. I hope to make it an inviting place that you’d like to visit time and time again, THANK YOU!

  5. Hafa Adai!! I love your recipes!!! I bookmarked your blog for future reference! Do you have a recipe for “Ham Hocks and Mongo Beans” please? 🙂 Thank you!!!

    • Brian, thank you for following my blog!

      LOL, I actually do have a recipe for that dish….once I prepare the dish, I’ll definitely post it here.

      I only post recipes as I make the dish; that’s how I acquire my pictures, lol!


  6. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but
    I had to tell someone!

  7. Hi Rose… Just wanted to thank you for sharing not only these great Chamorro recipes but for the MEASUREMENTS!! lol I grew up with one of those Chamorro Mama’s that never measured anything, and everything still came out PERFECT!!! Now that I’m older I long for Chamorro food but can only cook up a few dishes from memory. With my Chamorro Mama having passed, I am so glad I have this website to visit to get some good ol Chamorro recipes… And the measurements!! 😉 lol

    • Carmelia, you are so very welcome! I know all too well the story of wanting to make a recipe and not getting the right measurements for it. Please know that ALL of the recipes have been tried and true and that I will never post a recipe that I myself haven’t tried or like.

      Please do come back and visit often……

  8. You have a wonderful and fascinating site… honestly I had never heard of Chamorro food. I saw your daughters recipe for BISTEAK CHAMORRO and found the use of vinegar and soy similar to my husbands Filipino food. You have opened up a whole new cuisine and culture for me… thank you for creating this wonderful page.

    • Hi Shimie! Thank you for checking out my blog. It was because of my daughter’s interest in the kitchen and cooking that I decided to create this blog. Chamorro food is very similar to the Filipino cuisine. I hope you give some of the recipes a try and come back to review them. HAPPY COOKING!


  9. Hafa Adai, Rose!
    I live in Virginia and never learned how to cook recipes from home, but am slowly learning. I found your blog through facebook and have spent some time looking through your recipes and getting ideas.

    Question: Quite a few recipes call for “Accent”. what is that?


  10. I found your blog through Pinterest. I’ve spent the last two days reading every one of your posts. I love your writing style and am grateful for the “seat” I’ve been given at your table. Thank you for sharing and I look forward (as does my family) to trying your dishes.

    • Lynette, that’s so sweet of you to mention. By no means am I a writer but I jot down what I’m actually thinking when it comes to the recipe. I present what I myself would like to see; LESS reading and more recipes and picture, LOL! Whenever I look for a recipe, I bypass the reading material and go straight to the recipe; so that’s what I’m trying to bring forth with my blog. Plus it’s a way for me to document for my children, our family favorites.

      Please come back again to visit. You’re always welcomed in my kitchen….. 😉

  11. Love your website and love your recipes that are simple everyday comfort food, chamorru style!… Keep it going Rose, you are doing a great job! esta!

    • HAFA ADAI! Awww, THANK YOU so much! I am enjoying doing this blog and sharing the tried and true recipes I’ve cooked! Please come back and visit again…..

    • Thank you Sharlene! I hope to bring a little bit of the Chamorro cuisine to your table, with my step by step techniques. Please let me know how any of the recipes you’ve tried worked and what your opinions on them are. I appreciate hearing from everyone! Si Yu’us Ma’ase!

  12. Hello Rose, I know we talked about lumpia. I was given a recipe for dipping the lumpia and was wondering if there was a name? The recipe calls for 2 cups vinegar, 1 cup chopped garlic, and enough salt to take the sour away from the vinegar. Then just dip your lumpia in this.

    • WOW! That’s gonna make A LOT of sauce. Unless you’re making frying up a lot of lumpia, I’d cut back on that sauce by half. There’s really not a name for it, just “Vinegar dipping sauce”?

      • I have about 4dozen lumpia in the freezer. I think will make half the vinegar sauce, thank you. I just bought more wrappers for the banana lumpia. I just want to say that I really enjoy your website and all of the recipes. The love I have for making food is huge and if course Thanksgiving is the best! I will be making your banana pie! 🙂

  13. I just want to say keep on keepin on sister I want try some of your recipes for thanksgiving this year 🙂 si yu’us ma’ase

  14. I want to tell you that your Website always brings a huge smile
    ! You are so amazing, talented, and gifted! because everything you cook is by far the best!…I Love You Babygirl!

  15. Rose, your website is so great! I enjoy all of the recipes and how easy they are to make. All of these remind of my best friend and will never forget, bless you June Baleto! So once again Rose thank you so much for your recipes!

    • Thank you so much Amelia! I myself have 2 grown daughters that are dabbling in the kitchen every now and then. So, I’m trying to make this site as user friendly as I possibly can. It’s kind of hard when you’ve been cooking for so long, with knowing what to do and not measuring; so I’m trying to see it through the eyes of a beginner cook. Please come back and visit any time.


    • Thank you so much GR! I appreciate you saying that…..I still love what I do at 671recipes, but this has also been something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Hope you stop in often. 🙂

    • Hafa Adai! I appreciate you following my blog and my posts. Please check back often…..I hope you try several of the recipes and let me know what you think, until then, HAPPY COOKING!!

  16. I had the pleasure of sampling Rose’s fried chicken while stationed in Hawaii. It is the best fried chicken I’ve ever tasted! When I think of Rose I think of her fried chicken, now that’s an impression.

  17. Great Job nen and continue ur dreams. Remember what I always tell u ladies – “u can do anything u want. Just focus”
