These are a few of my favorite recipes. I will add new recipes every few months. If you try one please let me know what you thought.
I love brunch, especially any dish that has an egg on top. I also love Middle Eastern flavors. Shashuka is the perfect marriage of onions, tomatoes, peppers and spice, topped with an egg. This dish is wonderful for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (or brunch!). Serve it with good bread or warm pitas to scoop up the flavorful spicy sauce.
I love stuffing- any kind of stuffing! This month most people will be having stuffing on their plates for Thanksgiving, but this dish can be served as a side dish like stuffing, or as a main dish served with a salad. Either way it's really good!
This was my favorite dessert as a kid next to pumpkin pie. It was a recipe from the bran flakes box, and I would eat leftovers for breakfast. Now I add more rhubarb, and if there are leftovers and no one is looking I still sneak a bite or two for breakfast.
This is my Grandmother's recipe. I grew up eating these cookies whenever anyone in my family made them. At Christmas we frosted them and the rest of the year they were sprinkled with nutmeg and sugar before they were baked. The sugar topping tastes great and is extra easy if you don't have time to frost.
I always use this appetizer, along with Shrimp Spread with Sriracha, for my evening luau classes. I'm often asked for the recipe, so here it is! It's very simple to make and everyone has enjoyed it at class.
An event that I really enjoy is Tiki Kon. It was held the weekend of July 11th this year (2015). As many of you know I cater the bar tour. This year I made a small cookbook of the recipes I'm serving to share with the tour participants.
