Happy Thanksgiving

I am thankful for my family, my job, my home, my health, my friends, my neighbors, and the privilege of calling Hawaii my home.

Shell Cookies

Hundreds of shells for Shelly and Kale's wedding.

Eggplant Parmesan

So many steps-slice and salt the eggplant, extract moisture, roll in bread crumbs and fry and then layer with sauce, mozarella, and parmesan but worth it when you have all the time in the world. Restaurant quality goodness.

Champion Malasadas

We were the lucky customers to get the last 8 malasadas for the night! Perfect timing! The sour performance of Laurie in "Oklahoma" was off set by the sweetness of these malasadas. Owner of this shop is a former employee of Leonard's bakery.

Oklahoma, the musical at UH Kennedy Theatre

The female lead, Laurie can either come off as flirty or irritating. This one was irritating. This was probably the longest 3 hours of my life. Nevertheless, it was nice hooking up with the Friedl ohana.

Evelyn's Baby Shower


Not only is this good for you you but it tastes so good, I can eat a whole recipe myself.


This is the FIRST and LAST time I will be making my own calamari. Rubbery and flavorless-yuck!

Bread Pudding

Have been trying to recreate the bread pudding that I recently had at the Halekulani Hotel. Portuguese sweet bread filled in for brioche and outcome was OK.

Halekulani Hotel

The best buffet at the most beautiful hotel on the island. Anna was equally impressed and asked her daddy if she could have her wedding there one day.

Shirley and Gerold's Wedding

We all gathered to celebrate the nuptials of the sweetest couple.
