I’ve just gone through a life altering experience. I reorganized my pantry. It was more of a project than I anticipated including scope, time, and effect on other parts of my life. Tidying a spot that takes up just 16 square feet created upheaval in about 500 square feet of the rest of the condo. I’m quite satisfied with the result but it felt like an emotional roller coaster at times. (Oh the new basket came! I can finally finish this project! Oh crap. I measured wrong. The basket doesn’t fit. How do I print a return label? %@$& we’re out of ink! Will I ever be able to put the kitchen back together again?

The last time we were on Maui was 2005. Back then it was a challenge to find more than a couple of vegetarian-friendly restaurants. 2018, however, is a different story. We recently stayed for 6 days in Kihei, ate most meals out, and still didn’t get to all the spots on my list of possibilities. But one cafe really stood out, and sadly, we had dinner there the night before we left. If only we’d found it earlier in the trip, Harvest Cafe could have made us happy on repeat visits for brunch (they don’t open until 10:00 am), lunch, and dinner.

If you have any vegetarians in your family, or others on special diets, the menu planning for these meals can make you a little harried.
Are you one of those people who actually reads a whole post on a food blog? Do you want to know the complete story about how the recipe came to be or do you jump right to the essentials: ingredients list and instructions? As a blogger myself, I probably shouldn’t admit this but I usually skim the text and then head directly to the recipe itself.
Smoothies are popular with me, ranking as one of my most favorite breakfast options. Smoothies are also popular with you, apparently, as my first review of delivery smoothie company Daily Harvest is one of my top posts ever. That was way back in 2016. They’ve since updated their packaging and their menu so I figured it was time to revisit these frosty breakfast beverages.
