I'm a huge fan of seafood.  White fish especially, but I also love shrimp - even more so if it's encrusted in coconut! :)  I typically only order fish when we are out at a nice restaurant, unless of course, we are in Hawaii and I'm eating it everyday for dinner!  Boy, do I miss Hawaii....

Did You Know? Cornbread originated in the South and is considered America's food. But did you also know that there are two types of cornbread:  Northern and Southern.  Northern cornbread is sweeter, tends to be a little more cake-like, and generally uses yellow cornmeal.  Southern cornbread is more savory and saltier and typically uses white cornmeal.

What exactly is Overnight Oats?  Basically it's raw rolled oats (not quick cooking) that are soaked overnight to absorb whatever liquid you put with them.  Put in the fridge overnight and in the morning, you have a delicious (and healthy) breakfast ready-to-go.

Day 6 + Final Day: Big Island Style

Day 6 was our last full day on the Island.  I was very sad...time flew by way too fast.  With that said, we knew we needed to site-see some more of the island. This day we decided to head down towards Kona to tour a coffee farm and go check out a Beekeeping Museum and sample some honey!

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

 I cannot take credit for this recipe.  I got this recipe inspiration from Just a Taste.  A few weeks ago, I went back to my hometown to help out my parents as my mom had knee surgery.  I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to make and try some new recipes.  For my mom's birthday, I got her a Slow Cooker, so I thought I definitely had to make a dish from it.  I happened to see this recipe on another foodie's page and it sounded so delicious.  It's so easy to make and was soooo tasty.
