Eating good food, cooking, and gardening (in that order) keeps me happy. I was born and raised in Hilo, Hawai'i and returned home 10+ years ago to raise my children here. I come from a family of fantastic cooks and gardeners. Of all of them, I am probably the least qualified to blog about cooking and gardening, but I'm learning... 

I'm not a chef nor am I a master gardener, I just like to eat well and gardening is cheaper than therapy. Yard to Table HI is my recipe book (because Post-Its and torn out pieces of paper stuck in an old cookbook isn't working so well for me anymore) but more than that I am hoping that readers will feel a little inspired to eat fresh, locally-grown foods and support local businesses for their own health and for the health of their communities. 

What else?

I'm pretty good at remembering what I ate where and with whom. Also, I can't stand to watch someone else brush their teeth.

I don't know why. 


Thanks for reaching out!
