Bags of fresh produce from the Wahiawa Farmer's Market encouraged me to try one of the recipes from Alicia Silverstone's the kind diet book. The combination of the oil, the sour of the vinegar and the freshness of the bok choy was delicious.

An invitation to Auntie Carol and Caridad's home for a meal is an invitation you do not decline! Good home style cooking in a charming plantation home on the North Shore.
I grew up spending summers with my aunts and my Apo Melchor and Apo Dorica who I adored. They were kind, loving, and generous to our family. Apo Melchor petitioned for my father to come to Hawaii to work on the sugar plantations when he was only 18 years old.

You're invited to the 3rd annual Cookie Swap. Next to rice, cookies are my favorite food. It was pure joy to be nibbling on gorgeous looking and fantastic tasting treats with the people I care about. It was pure joy to be surrounded by all kinds of cookies-confetti, snickerdoodles, red velvet, French pinwheels, shortbread, oatmeal, white chocolate with cranberry and pecans, granola peanut butter cup, ginger, and 2 kinds of biscotti-chocolate and pistachio cranberry.
