Honolulu, Pearl Harbor, and Diamondhead, HI: Day 7 and 8
Some of the fam headed back home, but Mom, Dad, Becky and I went to the big island to see Pearl Harbor.  I knew it would be moving, I knew it would be a history lesson, I knew I would regret not seeing it before leaving, but I didn't expect to feel so much ...

Kauai, HI: Day 6
On our last full day in Hawaii all together, we spent the morning doing what we wanted to do.  Dad, Matt, and Ed headed to the hike from the first day to get to the waterfall (double the distance of the first day), Becky and Mom slept in a little and kept a...

Kauai, HI: Day 5
We really packed a ton in already, boats, and helicopters, and hikes, and beaches, but there was still more to see!  Patti and Ed decided they had already seen Waimea canyon from the sky, so they wanted to go to a beach with the boys, so the rest of us pile...

Kauai, HI: Day 4
We toured Kauai by boat, and by foot, and today we went on a helicopter tour.  Becky, Mom, Dad, and me were all in one group, with Matt, Patti, and Ed in the next.  It was everyone's first time in a helicopter, and we were a little apprehensive, but super e...

Kauai, HI: Day 3
On day 3 we woke up and went to Queen's Bath.  This was a destination that Becky suggested, and she told us it was a series of tide pools, and I'm not sure what I expected, but it wasn't this.  This was so epic and way bigger than I thought it would be, and...

Kauai, HI: Day 2
Today we saw dolphins.  I will never forget the feeling I had when seeing huge pods of dolphins for the first time.  I've never wanted to just jump into the water more and forget everything else.  They were playful with each other, curious about us, and exa...

Kauai, HI: Actual Day 1
We got up at 6am (apparently the rest of the family had been awake for hours, but I kept my word about sleeping in!) and drove to the beginning of the Kalalau Trail, right at Ke'e Beach.  There's really only one main road around the island, and it can't go ...

Kauai, HI
My parents are the best.  If you've met them, you know this already, but trust me when I say they are.  For Christmas 2015, we were all gifted the gift of Hawaii.  My siblings and my nephews and my parents were headed to Hawaii!  What?!  A few planning sess...

Double Chocolate Cookies (Flourless)
I bet you thought I forgot about you, and those extra egg whites of yours leftover from the chocolate pots de creme .  I didn't!  I just got a little busy, as usual.  But I promise these cookies are worth it.  They remind me of a cross between a macaron and...

Chocolate Pots de Creme
The name sounds fancy, but we're essentially making a cross between a pudding and a mousse.  And don't worry, I have a plan for your leftover egg whites after using just the yolks in this dessert. How beautiful is that scene?!  Copper measuring cups, orange...
