An Old Southern Memory

January 15, 2012

The college I attended right after graduating from high school was Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi. I spent the majority of the decade of the fifties in Jackson, a decade of great turmoil in the South. I don’t need to remind you what that decade was all about. My young husband and I went in […]

Words

January 11, 2012

Many of us have read Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert written in 2007. The notion of using three words to define a specific period of her life, some have started to seek out three words that relate to their own life. One blogging author finds three words to symbolize her year, both in how […]

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 […]

Mele Kalikimaka!

December 25, 2011

We may not have a White Christmas in Hawaii (except on top of Mauna Kea) but we do have an incredible display of poinsettias! All along the highway we find massive blooms, some in long banks of poinsettia hedges – others peeking out from behind trees. As late as April, I have seen a wayward […]

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 […]

The Case of the Disappearing Hen

November 6, 2011

Once upon a time, on the island of Maui in Hawai`i, there was the story of an escaped “big cat.” Everyone thought it was a black panther or something similar. That mystery was never solved, but I know someone who can verify the existence of such a big cat that was roaming around in his […]

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 […]

A Garden Surprise

October 15, 2011

My garden has suffered from too much neglect this fall. A friend in Hilo gifted me some “old” unwanted plants. One was a pot of orchids that seriously needed to be divided. I’ve been trying to remember to nurture them along until I could do something with them. I have managed to sprinkle them with […]

Got Milk?

October 1, 2011

In the midst of my too busy workload, I just have to share this shot I managed to grab of Katrina. After I finished my evening glass of milk, she wanted the last drop. I promise to be back soon with more of Lava Lily’s blog. A hui hou!

Punalu`u Black Sand Beach

September 4, 2011

While friends were searching for turtles and swimming in the rough water, I sat at my favorite spot to watch the surf pound against the rocks. Just for fun, I shot a short video I thought my readers would enjoy watching (and hearing)! Click here to watch the YouTube – and yes, it was really […]

Wind Farm Cemetery

August 28, 2011

Recently, I have made several trips to the end of South Point Road to show visitors the Southernmost point in the United States. These remnants of a wind farm make me wonder just how environmentally conscious it is to let these stand. New working turbines have been built to take the place of the old […]

Pana`ewa Rainforest Zoo and Gardens

August 21, 2011

During a recent seminar for college teachers, I played unofficial tour guide to several of my colleagues from other parts of the United States. One of the women in the group had been watching for the so-called “corpse flower” to bloom. We were told that the flower was to bloom at the Pana`ewa Zoo and […]

Back to School

August 7, 2011

My posts have been primarily about gardening with some cooking, some travel, and some reflection pieces. These topics illustrate my “spare time” hobbies rather than my “day job.” This week, I’ve decided to share with you the way I walk (run?) through my world when I’m not gardening, cooking, traveling, or reflecting. Here is my […]
