  1. This recipe worked very well. I found it like a jello or jelly as we Aussie's call it. It certainly presented very well. After it had chilled I was a little concerned that it was going to look like a blob of homemade glue on the plate. I decided to toast some shredded coconut and tossed the squares into that before putting on a platter. The coconut taste was as strong as I had first imagined either but was enjoyable just the same. Made for Spring 2008 PAC


I love to cook which is why I'm a recipezaar junkie! It is so great to have all the recipes I want at my fingertips. Well, it is all about me....I've been married to my amazing husband for three years. When I'm not experimenting with recipes at home, we love to dine at all the great restaurants here in Hawaii. We travel a lot between Maui and Oahu being we live and work on Oahu and most of our loved ones are on Maui. Whenever possible we try to get to the beach for our sunset barbeques. The picture posted was taken in front of his grandmother's beach house in Hau'ula. How lucky are we? Update 02/06/08: My husband & I have relocated to Alabama. My military man is stationed at Ft. Rucker & attending flight school. Though we are soo far from our family & home I'm loving it here. I do miss the fresh island fish and the local farmer's market. It's been a challenge finding the ingrediants I'm used to using. I drive my DH crazy going store to store to find what I need. When it's all said & done and there is a delicious meal in front of him, he says it's all worth it! We have definately embraced the food of the south. It's a culinary adventure & I'm enjoying the ride. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
