Happy Hearts Mochi

I want to thank my wife for getting me a box of mochi from Happy Hearts Mochi last week. I was astounded by how incredibly sublime these creations were. Quite simply the best mochi I've ever had. The delicate mochi forms a layer surrounding a block of wonderful haupia or haupia with a lower layer of chocolate truffle or another creation. Each bite melts in your mouth and would be satisfying on its own or even better to be joined by further bites. Thank you to Renee, a Kokua website member, for… Continue

Show me the money!

I would LOVE to win a $100 gift certificate. I would buy fresh LOCAL greens and sprouts and fruits as I am a happy live foody, thank you. Kokua has the best selection of local produce. I would also support Devinder, your fabulous raw gourmet chef/kundalini raiser, by buying lots of his exquisite creations.

Cooperative Housing - an intentional community?

Is anyone interested in living in an intentional community? A group may be forming to set up something in the Honolulu area. These folks are fairly experienced in many forms of cooperative living, and tend to be professional folks.

Haleiwa Farmers' Market: a Nice Surprise

Kokua's store manager, Larry Kirby, drove Rachael and me out to Haleiwa last Sunday to enjoy the wonderful Haleiwa Farmers' Market. The farmers' market was right off the highway just before entering Haleiwa town if driving from Laie. We had a beautiful drive up the windward side despite some rain which cleared beautifully as we entered Kahuku. The… Continue

Building on Farmland - Paved Paradise, Put up a Fast Food Stand

In this column, they question the ongoing policy of horizontal urban expansion at the expense of farm lands. On Oahu, Maui and Kauai, rich farm lands are under threat from the expansion of houses. Granted, people gotta live somewhere. But in a place… Continue

More Research Coming Up Against Candy - Give them an Organic Apple Instead!

The findings are troubling and made me think twice about allowing regular candy consumption for my kids (meaning, 3-4 per week, a piece or two). What are your thoughts? You can read the article here. An excerpt is… Continue
