A Heavenly Take on Hamakua Mushrooms

Neither fruit, vegetable nor plant, mushrooms are a delicious type of fungus. Please, don’t be put off by that “fungus among us” notion though, because mushrooms deserve all the attention, for obvious reasons. The health benefits of this fungus are substantial, as they’re packed with antioxidants and vitamins. I always have been obsessed with mushrooms,…

Coo Coo for Coconuts

My healthy obsession for coconut has reached its peak, Ono readers! Coconut milk, fresh coconut, coconut water, haupia — you name it, I love it. Found throughout the tropics and subtropics, coconut is renowned for its versatility, and it’s a lovely, healthy addition to your daily diet. Coo coo for coconut, I sought out a…

Life of Pie

As you may know, this past Monday, Feb. 9, was National Pizza Day. Here at Dining Out, the holiday stretched out, much like a pliable piece of dough, into a weeklong pizza-devouring frenzy! You see, for foodies, few bonds are as strong as a mutual love for pizza. Those three magical words, “I love pizza,”…

Biting into the Best Benedict

Nothing says breakfast or brunch better than eggs Benedict. Ranked as one of the most beloved dishes in the nation, I’m most definitely a fan. How can any breakfast-loving individual with an appetite resist two perfectly poached eggs sitting atop thick pieces of Canadian bacon (or your favorite breakfast meat), all doused in luxurious hollandaise?…

Deconstructing the Best Burgers

I’ll bet the most pressing topic up for debate this weekend is the Super Bowl. For many, the debate will be about this year’s combatants and which team will win, the Seattle Seahawks or the New England Patriots. Others will tune in to argue over the best Super Bowl commercials or Katy Perry’s half-time performance….

Loco for Loco Moco

It’s nearing the end of January, and while I applaud those who still are sticking with their New Year’s resolutions of following an exercise regiment and making healthier food choices, let’s face it: Sometimes it’s fun to be rebellious, break the rules and forget about counting calories, especially when it’s all for the love of…

This Soup Obsession is Real!

A new year always is refreshing. It’s literally 365 blank pages where you can continue to write your own story. I consider myself an outgoing optimist, so when I was hit with laryngitis and a Darth Vader-like voice on the second day of 2015, my promising year seemed to be in shambles. Imagine a self-proclaimed…

Let’s Hear it for the Ducks!

The aloha spirit will surge across the nation tomorrow, as we cheer on University of Oregon Ducks as they go head-to-head against Ohio State Buckeyes in the college football national championship game in Arlington, Texas. This hotly-contended nail-biter is expected to spike TV ratings, and all hopefully will witness Hawaii’s own Marcus Mariota, star quarterback…

Sweet Potato Promises Something Good

Happy New Year! Let’s begin 2015 with something sweet and a little bit savory. I bet you’re thinking, oh no, more sugary desserts and sinful holiday fare? Nope, that’s not it. I’ve definitely had my fill of cookies, cakes, pies and party mix, that, when added up, probably could feed an entire village. Let’s give…

Luck of the Ahi

The monthlong holiday festivities have come and gone. (Yes, like every year, I’m suffering from Christmas withdrawals and saying goodbye to my favorite time of year is never easy.) Yet, in place of merry holiday cheer are those good ‘ole New Year’s resolutions that we all make with full optimism and determination. But alas, while…
