Missing Hawaii…

And not just because there is snow piling up outside right now…

Ok, the snow piling up definitely helps!

Snow Day!

So…lacking any current plans to head to the islands, I did what I could.  I ordered some treats that remind me of the Maui…thank goodness for online shopping.

One of the things I discovered while the kids were scarfing up Ono Gelato (see their last taste here) was very yummy and a little spicy local dressings and sauces by Jeff’s Jams and Jellies.  I was living in memory of these really fresh items until just a couple of months ago when they opened up online ordering.  Woo Hoo!   My faves are the Mango and Papaya – but I’m branching out and trying the Thai dressing this time.  Honestly, it’s hard to go wrong with any of Jeff’s creations (which he makes on his own). 

Now…time for some Julia’s Banana Bread – truly the best in the world!  Sure, it won’t be quite the same adventure…but we can eat it while we are reliving the drive.

Even if you haven’t been to Maui, these folks are great local food artisans, and it is so worth it to give them a try (even if you have to save up).  Just think about how much cheaper it is than flying over there…
