A garlicky wine sauce is well known as the basis for the classic Italian dish, shrimp scampi. The sauce is delicious and perfect for sopping up with some crusty bread. For this recipe, I thought the sauce would be a great preparation for chicken thighs. Lots of garlic, some red vermouth and fresh parsley coat the chicken and add flavor to the linguine.
A Taste of Hilo:
Season creep is creepier than ever. And no, it’s not my imagination. I say this because Publix had pumpkin beer out on the hay bales on Aug. 6.
Is there anything better than a well-built salad? And by salad, I mean a towering wedge of crunchy iceberg lettuce topped with a tangy yet creamy homemade blue cheese dressing and juicy chunks of ripe, diced tomato and crunchy bacon bits.
The autumn equinox occurred last Friday night meaning we are officially into fall. This season often conjures visions of fields of orange pumpkins for me. Memories of times past. Here in Hawaii, the best pumpkin to grow is the Japanese kabocha squash. It is green, not orange, but is easy to grow and has very tasty orange flesh.
It is time to think about planting your fall vegetable garden. This week and for the next few weeks let’s consider landscapes that feed us.
Kilauea’s recent summit eruptions and lava lakes are exciting for residents, visitors, and scientists. However, Klauea has had numerous explosive eruptions in the last 2,000 years that remain poorly understood.
Having to make dinner night after night can be a drag any time of year, but it can feel even more like a chore in September if you have kids in school.
How a California caviar producer with a fake Russian name became the vanguard of sustainable aquaculture
SAN JOSE, Calif. — Sample a spoonful of Tsar Nicoulai caviar at the Caviar Cafe at the Ferry Building Marketplace or a high-end San Francisco restaurant such as Gary Danko or Aphotic, and you might be surprised that the salty, buttery beads melting in your mouth aren’t from Russia or anywhere near the Caspian Sea.
Poor cauliflower! It is a vegetable that did not get much attention until someone decided to mince it and call it cauliflower rice. It always seemed to be a stepchild, some calling it ubiquitous as it is ever present but it doesn’t get much attention.
What crazy weather we are having! Kona normally experiences the rainy season from April to almost November. This year August and most of September were abnormally dry, as was the rest of the island.
School is back in session and, for some parents, that means learning how to get a quick and nutritious breakfast into their children’s stomachs before they head out the door.
Football isn’t the only thing people go nuts over this time of year.
The oldest food festival, the Kona Coffee Festival, will be held November 3-12. The very first festival occurred in 1970 with the intent to preserve, perpetuate and promote Kona’s unique, nearly 200 year heritage.
It’s probably more often that you think
Kilauea is now erupting at the summit for the fifth time since 2020! The ongoing eruption offers an opportunity for Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) staff to learn and collaborate with partners at the University of Hawaii at Hilo (UH-Hilo) Geology Department.
In the good old days, a typical Hawaiian garden was large enough to give neighbors plenty of space to have privacy. As our population increases and land costs escalate, lots are getting smaller. This requires creativity to effectively give us a little garden peace and quiet. Traditional garden designs of Japan have dealt with these issues over the centuries. A trip to Japan would be great, but we can learn by observing how local landscape architects and designers have addressed these challenges.
NEW YORK — From $300 studded headboards and $100 coffee table books to custom-made cabinets to disguise your mini-fridge, students are spending big bucks to decorate their dorm rooms, adding yet another layer to the soaring costs of college.
The transition from summer to fall signals not only a big change in temperature and seasons, but for some, a change of decor.
