Toffee Oatmeal Cookies

Words from a true Cookie Monster...

Light crispy edges with a delicate crunch and a soft gooey center. The toffee pieces are the perfect size so you get at least one piece in every bite and the buttery finish lingers in your mouth making you want another bite.

My husband actually said those words as he walked out the door with a stack of cookies on a napkin.

These cookies got rave reviews from my family and friends and now I would like to share them with you.

Guacamole Salsa Stew

The first time I tasted this green colored sauce was at a food stand in Puerto Vallarta. It was served in a bowl along with a couple other salsas, chilies and limes.

Hyotan Squash with Ginger Garlic Chicken

I was thumbing through one of my Hawaii cookbooks when I spotted this recipe. What drew my attention was the Hyotan squash. I had never heard of it, which stirred up my curiosity and got me surfing (not in the ocean) but on my computer for the answer.

That’s when I stumbled upon Suzi-Pratt’s blog that had pictures of her grandmothers Hyotan squash and recipe.

Mystery solved! Hyotan squash is what I have always referred to as Opo squash.
