“Blue Zones” Gazpacho

June 27, 2017

This is a post I made about seven years ago and it’s definitely one of my favorites. In fact, I happen to have everything on hand to treat myself with a cold bowl. It’s better than a smoothie, a salad, or soggy veggies, and fits perfectly into a “Blue Zones” way of eating. I learned […]

“Blue Zones Project” Coming Our Way!

June 14, 2017

About fifteen or more years ago, I became interested in the Okinawa program and diet. The exact title of the book I bought was The Okinawa Program: how the world’s longest-lived people achieve everlasting health – and how you can, too. I suspect I was not the only person who was looking for a program […]

More About Lilikoi Butter

February 23, 2014

Ever since I made my first post about Lilikoi Butter back in early September of 2009, I have had more than 50 comments on that post alone. When I did “Lilikoi Butter Revisited” in that next summer, I received 26 more comments – a record for any of my posts – and they keep coming. […]

Lucy’s Basic Quiche

December 28, 2011

I was asked to bring quiche to a Christmas brunch with friends, but it’s been years since I made a quiche, even though I love it. This was as good a time as any to rev up my cooking skills. The proof will be in the eating! There is a lot you can do with […]

Apple-Plum Crumble

December 21, 2011

On a daily basis, I eat one of the large organic Fuji apples from Costco. The last time I bought a box, I saw these huge beautiful plums, which I bought on impulse. I love fruit, but there are just so many you can eat in a day! Flipping through some of my favorite web […]

Pumpkin Scones

October 22, 2011

Few of my recipes are original. Like most average cooks, I find something online or in a magazine that looks good. I take it and alter it to whatever I have on hand, and/or whatever sounds right. I found this one from King Arthur Flour Company and had to try it! You can find the […]

Chipotle Chicken Casserole

June 26, 2011

From an early age, as a preacher’s kid (or P.K. as everyone referred to us) I was led to believe that you can’t get into Heaven without a covered dish. Maybe it’s because I grew up in the Midwest where a potluck supper was a primary social occasion, but usually a casserole doesn’t appeal to […]

Roasted Pig’s Head

June 5, 2011

In my freezer, the head of the pig I got from Masazo’s Piggery in Na`alehu remained, mostly because I wasn’t sure how to prepare it. Every recipe I found online talked about half a head of a smallish pig. This was a whole head from a 400 pound pig, probably weighing between 16 and 20 […]

A Hidden Beach Wedding

May 15, 2011

One of the pleasures of teaching is my capacity as a retired United Methodist minister to officiate at the weddings of students when they ask. This past Friday, I had the honor to join two very special people in marriage. We walked about 200 yards along the water on a gravel path to a spot […]

Whole Wheat Quinoa Waffles

May 11, 2011

This past week, a friend called to ask if I had a good recipe for waffles, and she didn’t want to use a MIX. We began to reminisce about waffles from our childhood. I gave her a recipe I found in a very old Betty Crocker cookbook while she looked up “waffles” online. I’m not […]

Pink Grapefruit Marmalade Glazed Pork

May 4, 2011

I wrote about my homemade pink grapefruit marmalade in July last year. Since then I have eaten it on ice cream, bagels, scones, toast and sometimes just by the spoonful. A friend brought over a large piece of cooked, leftover pork tenderloin on a recent visit. We came up with the idea of using our […]

Dried Cherry Crumb Pie

February 20, 2011

2-20-11 Dried Cherry Crumb Pie When I picked up a huge bag of dried cherries at Costco a few weeks ago, I had no clue what I was going to do with them. I love fresh cherry pie, but we aren’t getting fresh cherries in right now, so I wondered if I could make a […]
