Great Hawaiian Magazine

Posted by Kohana on 11/4/2011 to Hawaii


I don't always have time to cook, but when I do, I love to try recipes from my favorite cooking magazineEdible Hawaiian Islands.  It's a wonderful Hawaiian magazine that both locals and tourists adore! I first found this magazine at the Kauai library in Koloa and have loved it ever since.    Made with Macadamia Nut Wine, the following recipe from their magazine is fantastic!  The Volcano Winery Macadamia Nut Wine  unfortunately is not available on the mainland, however, if you live in Hawaii or are visiting, you can find it on every island.  I have also substituted the Tedeschi Winery's Maui Blanc Pineapple Wine instead of the Macadamia Nut Wine and it was delicious!  Check their website for mainland locations to buy the pineapple wine. 

Kukuiolono Golf Course in Kauai

Posted by Kohana on 8/21/2010 to Hawaii

I am not a golfer but I love to accompany my husband when he plays golf at Kukuiolono Golf Course in Kalaheo, Kauai.  It is a beautiful nine-hole golf course that is open to the public and you can play all day long for $7.00 or for $9.00 on the weekends!  According to GoHawaii.com "This nine-hole course nestled on the hills above Kalaheo may be one of Kauai's best kept golfing secrets. Originally built as the personal course of sugar king Walter McBride, Kukuiolono Golf Course offers generous fairways, limited hazards, and panoramic views of Kauai's scenic southwest side. Great course for beginners. Following its creation, McBryde donated the course to the people of Kauai in 1919 and those fortunate enough to find this gem can give their 'aloha' as they pass his grave near the 8th tee."

It's been way too long since I have posted even if I have been busy! A few days ago, I visited a new Starbucks at the Wailea Marriott Resort in Maui.

Upcountry Maui

Posted by Kohana on 3/4/2010 to Hawaii


While reading the Travel section of our local paper yesterday, I came upon an article written by Gary A. Warner titled The Odd Side of Maui. In his article he said that most tourists come to experience the beautiful beaches in Maui, and there are plenty to go around since there eighty-one beaches on the island! Mr. Warner suggested that visitors take a couple of days out of their stay on the island and explore Maui upcountry. "Up here, you get pines instead of palms, the scent of lavender instead of the smell of the sea.
