Some dread the Road to Hana, but I knew exactly what I was gearing up to do. It’s something I’ve considered doing before when I’ve been to Hawaii, but always filled my time with something else. I don’t mind a long drive in a beautiful place (roughly 4 hours each way) and I was most […]

    brenda - With the cost of a loaf of bread now a days, making my own is the best route! Having a Bosch would be amazing so I can make ore loaves at once without hand kneading!ReplyCancel

    Eliza - Same here, homemade bread… is there anything better than fresh warm homemade bread? I submit that there is not.ReplyCancel

    Kristine F - I love to bake and have decided that Bosch is the way I want to go with a mixer. I currently don’t have a stand mixer and desperately want one! Thanks so much for the opportunity!ReplyCancel

    Kristine F - I would whip up a batch of cookies right away. My family loves home made cookies, but it is difficult to make them without a stand mixer when you have tennis elbow! I make them occasionally but would love to make them more! Thanks for the opportunity.ReplyCancel

    Elisabeth - P.S. The kitchen table refinish looks so great! I don’t believe I’ve seen anything like this before. Def. one of a kind. Think I may try this on an old sewing table I recently acquired and have liked having in my dining area but couldn’t settle on a color. I was thinking Annie Sloan country grey- but this piece here has another level of character to its color.ReplyCancel

Yesterday, we loaded up all three cars and drove to front street. Front street is a beautiful place in Maui where you can find food, shopping, a marina with all sorts of excursions and boats, and most importantly – the best shaved ice on the planet. Our favorite is called “break wall”. When we visited […]
