Local Flavors

SPAM, glorious, SPAM. In case you didn’t know, Hawaii LOVES it’s SPAM, as a matter of fact, over seven million cans a year are estimated to be consumed in the Aloha State. We even have an annual festival for it on the Island of O’ahu. […]

Heart Healthy French Fries

Heart Healthy French Fries

An unhealthy weakness of mine is the temptation of golden, salty, crispy, oily, wonderful, fast food fries. I could snack on them all day long, if they weren’t so darn bad for me. Luckily, I’m good at recreating things, and French fries are crazy easy […]

Pizza Dough

Like a taco salad, pizza is the kind of thing that you can dress up anyway you want. It is a clean slate onto which you can build a slice of perfection to your own personal taste. It was especially helpful this past ‘Mostly Vegan […]

My Love for Pinterest

My Love for Pinterest

  Ah, yes, it’s that time of year when being “busy” kicks into overdrive, and so begins the start of numerous birthdays, office parties, Fall Equinox, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Winter Solstice and Christmas. The last quarter of the year is kind of crazy for most of […]

Ulu (Breadfruit) Burgers

Ulu (Breadfruit) Burgers

Ulu, also known as breadfruit, is a versatile fruit beloved in many areas of the world, including Hawaii. I was excited recently to be able to harvest some for making these burgers, not just because it is a beloved local staple, but because it is […]
