Things I'm Loving...

I'm obsessed with the colors, comfort, and beauty of JCrew's newest collection.

Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie

Friends and family turn and run at the mention of vegan but these cookies changed their minds.
Hearty, healthy, and really good.

Leilehua Soccer

It was 4 years ago that I taught Jarrett and Kelii English and watched them play soccer. Fast forward to their last home game.

Maple Coffee Cake

Secret ingredient of pear baby food makes for a super moist coffee cake. Thrilled to have received a tweet from Candice Kumai!

Chocolate Silk Pie

I was skeptical of tofu as an ingredient but surprised by the rich chocolate taste. Plan to double the recipe for the graham cracker crust for a bigger,
thicker taste.

Girls's Night Out

A night of no cooking, alcohol and good food was needed. Need I say more?!

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2013! Apple cider and a meal of fried chicken, daikon pickles, a salad with almost naughty dressing (agave nectar, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce and sesame oil)starts off the year to a sweet,healthy,and tasty new year!

Hearty Minestrone Soup

No need to buy the stuff from a can when you can make it yourself-simple, fast, and comforting on a chilly day in paradise. Yes, it does get cold in Hawaii.


Many steps, a lot of work that yielded only 32 pieces of rugelach which hubby enjoyed greatly. Doubt I'll do this again.
