Typical Aloha Spirit, we love to share.

These recipes are so ono they broke da mouth.

Aloha, party people — hele mei hoohiwahiwa! Break out the leis and grass skirts because it’s hula time.

Loco moco an amazing Hawaiian comfort food. Classic made by topping rice with a fried burger, which then smothered with a rich, brown gravy and finished with a fried egg. Seriously, how did it take until 1949 for someone to think of this combination? Sometimes, we all get hangry, so this cheap, filling bowl of goodness is the perfect solution, whether you’re a broke student or an older professional who wishes you were. Garnish with green onions.

Ono Butter Moch. Mochi an easy Hawaiian local-style treat made with coconut and butter in a rice flour base. A great dessert for any tropical themed party.

The word shoyu is Japanese for soy sauce.

Haupia pie is a chocolate coconut lover’s dream. It’s a rich and delicious Hawaiian-style dessert.

Aloha! Here in Hawaii, malasadas are the ONLY donuts we have! Sold at fundraisers and are very popular! There are many Portuguese descendants in the islands. Onolicious!

Hawaiian food has such a breadth of flavor, variety, and history.

 Hawaiian macaroni salad recipe is simple and tasty — just like you’d get at a Hawaiian restaurant. No fruit in this salad, just macaroni pasta, carrot, and a creamy dressing. Very yummy and easy to make.

Haupia a popular Hawaiian dessert often found at luaus.

Spam deserves all the recognition it can get. And Spam musubi? It’s an ideal beach snack, picnic treat, or anytime snack. The delightful saltiness of Spam and soy sauce mixed with soft sushi rice and nori is a combination that’s hard to beat, and you can deep-fry them for an even more delectable mix of textures. Fun fact: In Hawaii, seven million cans of Spam are consumed a year. (that’s almost five times the state’s population!).

Taro Chip Cookies

Taro chip cookies, Hawaii’s answer to the popular potato chip cookies. These cookies have the perfect combination of crunchy, sweet and salty.

Miso Butter Cookies

These miso butter cookies have a rich, savory, buttery flavor – the miso really adds an richness to the cookie. If you want to make homemade cookies for Christmas or any occasion, 

Kim Chee Potato Cakes

Make easy Korean-Style kimchee, potato pancakes using Hawaii’s favorite Halm’s kimchee and new Korean poke sauce or sriracha

Hurricane Popcorn Cookies

Make a hurricane popcorn cookie using island princess mochi pop which is a combination of caramel corn, arare (rice crackers)… added macadamia nuts and furikake.

Pastele Stew

If you grew up in Hawaii or near Puerto Rican you probably love Pastele Stew.

Paiai and Poi

After steaming and cleaning the corm, taro is pounded with the least amount of water. On a wooden board, papa kuiai, using a stone pestle, pohaku kuiai. The starch molecules are crushed. Forming a gummy mass of broke-da-mouth awesomeness fit for travel and long-term storage. When the Native Hawaiians navigated by canoe throughout the Pacific, they were able to survive off fish from the sea and paiai. By crushing the starch molecules, the substance begins to ferment in a process not unlike the production of sauerkraut, kimchee, cheese, or daikon. All of these fermented foods rely on the beneficial bacteria lactobascillus.

The difference between paiai and poi is water content. Paiai is undiluted poi, while poi is diluted paiai.  Both are, however, super-foods with more than 1000 years of preparation and taste buds behind them.
