Friday Photo — Kona Sunset

Coming over the Saddle Road from Kona on our way back to Hilo in January, we turned around to see the sun going down. I’m named after the sunrise and there’s such a sense of what’s-to-come wonder about the first light…but I’ve seen far more sunsets than sunrises (despite the... Read More

Friday Photo — (Meat) Ballin’

A couple weeks ago we had the chance to check out the brand new eatery, Meatball. Meatball is Robert McGee’s (formerly of the now-closed Whole Ox Deli) new spot over on Kapahulu. They serve—what else?!—meatballs with your choice of sauce and, if you like, a starch. There are many, many,... Read More

Over the weekend, I took my new oven for a test drive. I baked up some tasty Raspberry Breakfast Bars from the Baked: New Frontiers in Baking cookbook by the Baked NYC guys. They came out really well. I’ll blog about them really soon. While I was baking, Shake went... Read More

Friday Photo — Art on a Plate

We were invited to attend an absolutely, insanely incredible dinner held by Patek Philippe (the watch makers) and Ben Bridge Jewelers. (In case you were wondering, there is  — was, rather — a Ben Bridge. We sat with his grandson. Crazy!) This private dinner was catered by Chef Chris Kajioka and his... Read More

Friday Photo — Silence on the Salt Flats

The holiday rush is through, but I’m still feeling harried and stressed out. (And that’s even after a vacation!) I need to remember to take a deep breath and quiet down. “Silence alone is worthy to be heard.” — Henry David Thoreau I took this photo of a desolate looking... Read More
