Brother Noland takes us "back to the bush" on the set of Cooking Hawaiian Style making his manini soup.
Chef Reno owner of Fresh Catch Hawaii has a line of bottled sauces. Black magic is a sauce like teriyaki which can be used for a variety of things. I tried his sauce for my teriyaki meatloaf which actually came out to be one of the best I ever tasted. It even is better than my recipe...
This dish is simply taking your favorite basic curry recipe (box kine) and switching up the vegetables. EASY! Instead of using potatoes I used pumpkin; any type of pumpkin should be fine or even butternut squash would work too. I added spinach for color as well as green beans for a nice crunch. Most importantly, I us...
This is the perfect dish that combines flavors from different ethnicities.. you get the savory flavor of miso enhanced with the sweetness of marsala wine. The flavor is incredible!

Bacon wrapped mochi, a really delicious and simplistic pupu that can be grilled or deep fried and served hot.
A great way to use up leftover chicken or a great recipe to serve at a potluck bbq!
When I was little, our family ate a lot of fried rice.
No wonder, there were five of us kids and my parents--7 hungry mouths to feed. It's simple, fast, and when you add a few slices of bacon--it's very flavorful. We always had it with a lot of vegetables mixed in, too. Every family, or every cook, has th...
Broiled sushi is a great party appetizer and is easy to make for those of you that don't want to spend your time rolling sushi. Place the rice and toppings in a pan, broil and serve! Your guests simply scoop the rice into a piece of nori (seaweed) and eat!
Remember the days of bbq sticks - you know, the kind that we would order at carnivals or on the side with saimin. This is my version of bbq sticks made with a ginger soy drizzle for extra flavor.
I recall the first time my grandfather made this dish in our home. He had done all his preparation and place it in the oven before going out to do some yard work. Timing it perfectly, when the work outside was done, so was this delicious dish. The original dish was a simple one, flavored simply with shiitake mushroom...

A chocolate lover's twist on your mochi making adventures!
While just as delicious as the original Bibinka I recipe, this takes it to another level beginning with rice and broiling the sugar mixture on it's top. It is very worth the extra effort. No worries, never any leftovers.
For us, growing up in Hawaii was simple. This was dessert. A bowl of hot chocolate with buttered pieces of Saloon Pilot crackers. Nothing fancy but so ono! This is a tribute to my Grandmother (Julia Aikala-Abraham-Arieta). The hot chocolate recipe provided here is kicked up a notch using Hawaiian Vintage ch...
Classic japanese "Bata" (butter) Yaki sauce. Usually there are thin slices of beef and vegetables and the food is cooked on an electric skillet in butter. This sauce is for Bata Yaki!
This faux “Japanese” dish will change the way you eat authentic sushi…forever! Replacing the thin Nori wrapper with fatty strips of bacon does violate the sushi law, but who the heck cares? This tasty treat serves as a meal in itself—especially for voracious rice eaters such as you and me.
This version of lumpia is made with the richer flakier phyllo dough instead of lumpia wrappers since it is baked.
Simple potluck dish that is always popular at my house.
This is a great salad that incorporates whole grains, cooked and raw vegetables with a delicious maui onion vinaigrette!
Thanks to a past neighbor for sharing this simple and yummy recipe. Don’t skimp on the marinating time.
