Breakfast Sandwich

I am obsessed with the egg sandwich at Beet Box Cafe that features a "special" sauce, that I made my own version. My special sauce included the following: papaya, curry seasoning, minced garlic, and mayonnaise. Now I have to perfect the aioli sauce.

Goddess Dressing on Corn on the Cob

Melted butter is my usual go to, but homemade goddess dressing on corn on the cob is just…delicious!


My girl crush who is sweet, generous, smart as a whip, a fantastic cook, and just a pleasure to be with. Did I mention that she's an awesome artist too? Check her out on instagram: denisecummingsartist.

Ricado's Italian Restaurant

A perfect "Italian" way to end a perfect school year with kids I've had the pleasure of teaching their freshmen, sophomore, and senior years. Congratulations Class of 2016.

Happy 89th Birthday

Happy Birthday to my favorite guy in the whole world. A birthday wouldn't be a birthday if it isn't celebrated at Au's Chop Suey, a family favorite.

Ice Cream Sandwich

I've always been a fan of the Chipwich! A mound of ice cream nestled between 2 delicious cookies and embellished with either nuts or chocolate chips on the sides. This is definitely a summer dessert!

Gyotaku Restaurant

If the Japanese flock to this restaurant serving Japanese food, then it must be good! Sashimi is fresh and tempura is light and flakey!

Hummingbird Cake

I'm still wondering how hummingbirds and pineapple are related. Whatever the relations, it mixes well in this luscious and decadent cake.

Fish Taco

Surfing and fish tacos go hand in hand! Maybe it's a Mexican thing where you see taco stands all over surf towns. This is a lighter version where I cook the fish in a skillet instead of frying. The chipotle sauce is creamy, slightly spicy, tangy and sweet and takes the tacos to another level. It would be a crime not to make this sauce, it's just that good.

Monkeypod Cafe

The "it" place for pauhana pupus. Located at the beautiful Ko'olina Resort featuring dishes with local produce and flair.
