Aloha Loco Moco

When you’re stupid enough to do the Pihea to Alakai Swamp trail (cuz it’s normal to find swamps at 4000 ft, right?) with a brief stop at the Kilohana lookout on your second day in paradise while it’s raining you’d

Habanero-Meyer Lemon Infused Olive Oil

No matter how well intentioned, the gifts we give are often a little window into our hearts and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. While we all try to put ourselves in the recipient’s Jimmy Choo’s, a little bit of

菜食主義者野菜焼きそば: Vegetarian Yakisoba

My oven remains MIA for an indefinite period. Apparently the igniter needs to be replaced but as the fates would have it, the manufacturer is out of stock and they don’t know when they’ll have more or how long it

Salmon Cakes With Spicy Harissa Rémoulade

Sometimes the weather life gets the better of you and before you realize it, that lovely thick salmon fillet you were planning on turning into 石狩鍋 Ishikari nabe (a hearty salmon stew with potatoes and a delicious miso-dashi-onion broth) gets

Slow Roasted Salmon With Shiraz Glaze

My beefy, 20,000 BTU workhorse of an oven is crippled and this is the last meal that it cooked. As last meals, it’s not a bad way to go. This is one of those contradictory dishes that has dramatic, delicious

竹の子ご飯: Nothing Says Spring Like Bamboo Shoot Mixed Rice

It’s been perfect cycling weather with highs in the 70s and gorgeous cerulean blue skies. Spring is here. I love reverse engineering recipes and after some fascinating conversations of her delectable gastronomic tour of Tokyo with Thai cuisine guru Miranti,

Meyer Lemon Panna Cotta

Yes, it’s the end of April and I still have access to tangy, juicy, succulent Meyer lemons so what dessert would highlight these lovely golden globes yet not make you feel like crawling into a cave to ride out your

Spring Heat Waves & Ahi Tuna Avocado Poke

Although the vernal equinox occurred a week ago and our Hawaiian tans have long since faded, there’s nothing like a brief heat wave (It’s been in the 70s but more importantly, what’s that bright disc in the sky?) and a

銀鱈のかば焼き: Black Cod With Kabayaki Sauce

While I enjoy the savory-sweet flavors of うな丼 (unadon) or grilled freshwater eel brushed with かば焼き (kabayaki), that addicting sweet soy sauce-based glaze, eel is off the menu for us. It’s really being overfished cuz young eels at the glass

塩鮭のお握り: Shiozake Salted Salmon Onigiri

I find that the times I’m by myself I eat very simply. Part of it is that I’m a social eater and when the hubby’s off conferencing and schmoozing I only eat when I’m hungry and tend to crave flavorful
