Spring Equinox Salad Day and night are equally balanced on the equinox, marking the beginning of spring. The days will start to lengthen and get warmer. Here in Hawaii, changes in seasons are subtle but remarkable. The purple jacaranda trees shed their blossoms along the roadsides, and the bright red Lehua blooms sparkle against the forest canopy. Spring is a time for a fresh start. It is a time when we can make changes and seek balance within our lives. Let’s celebrate the beginning of spring by enjoying a bounty of fresh-picked greens. I made this salad with fresh local vegetables and a spr ..read more

Raw Honey Simple Syrup (How to Keep the Honey Raw!) Whether for sweetening cocktails or glazing baked goods, there are many recipes on the web for a simple syrup substitute made with honey, but most of them require cooking the honey - which destroys the beneficial enzymes and antiseptic properties that honey contains in its natural raw form and that you likely purchased it for. So how do you make simple honey syrup with raw honey and keep it raw? It's simple, really! Simple syrup is merely a mix of water to sweetener with a ratio of 1:1.

Black Bottom Cupcakes (Made with Honey)

Black Bottom Cupcakes This chocolaty and rich cupcake recipe resembles a gourmet Hostess cupcake – cake on the outside filled with a creamy center. The filling contains chocolate chips which melt and ooze when bitten. Even better, no eggs nor sugar are added to these devilish delights! These are also great cupcakes without the filling if you want a nondairy cupcake. The recipe was given to me by our dear friend Roseann Buritz. Roseann was the proprietor of Renaissance Bakery in Hilo for several years in the 1970’s. Renaissance was an extraordinary bakery selling high quality baked goods. The ..read more

We have had wonderful refreshing rains this summer in Kona. However, fluctuating heat and cold may cause people to feel poorly. Many people catch a cold in the middle of the summer,  as have many of my friends. As luck would have it, my neighbor dropped off a bag of homegrown limes on my front doorstep, which inspired me to make this delicious concentrate to boost one's immune system. It makes for a beneficial tea when added to hot water. I like to add it to bubbly water for a refreshing spritzer. Just so you know, this is a potent elixir. It has a slightly bitter taste from the lime peel ..read more

  Halloween is a special time in Hawai'i. Ghost stories and supernatural tales which give us chicken skin are abundant. Hallowed ground is everywhere and we are reverent of where we tread. Still, it is also a time of merry making, costumes, and parties. Twenty-five years ago, when my children were growing up in Kona, there were few places to trick or treat. Many of us with little ones would go to the then-new subdivision below Lako street. There the little goblins and fairies could walk door to door, quickly gathering their bounty of candy. However, there was one house that went all out f ..read more
