Whew! With all the work and time needed to make cinnamon rolls, I'd rather go to Cinnabon and save me all the trouble. Nevertheless, they were delicious-buttery, sweet with extra glaze and crunchy from the pecans.
I look forward to my sister Judy coming home and when my brother in law Sanford accompanies her, it's an even happier occasion as we all gather to welcome them back. Sanford's fish dish was "broke da mouth"-tasty, light, and flavorful.
I used to enjoy having a slice of something sweet with hot chocolate at Coffee Gallery located in Haleiwa... until now. Unfriendly service, steep prices ($2.95 for a slice of banana bread) and not so fresh banana bread. This experience inspired me to make my own banana bread.
My husband always requests this as his birthday cake. Magnolia Bakery's apple tart is delicious but time consuming to make-prepare tart dough, blind bake crust, fill with apple filling and bake again. This explains why I make this once a year.
Xanadu, the movie was a flop but the musical is a hit! Get out the dove shorts, head bands, and leg warmers and enjoy yourself at Xanadu, the musical at Diamond Head Theater. Great music, acting, and dancing, even with roller skates.
My fascination with cupcakes began on a visit to New York's Magnolia Bakery. Anna and I stood in awe as bakers prepared rows of perfectly shaped cupcakes frosted with a huge mound of pastel shade frosting. What a pretty sight! I am a 39 year old wife and mother from Hawaii. I have been a teacher for 17 years and turn to baking for stress relief. I adore Martha Stewart and have found all her baked goods to be excellent. I have never witnessed a frown on someone who had just received a cupcake . They are the perfect size of goodness!
