Aloha, I'm Amy!
My family has lived in Hawaii since the pineapple plantation days and I want to share my local experiences here in Hawaii with you from a non-touristy perspective. I blog about my island travels, review attractions, eat yummy food, and document my projects such as constructing my aquaponic systems and learning how to cook my Mom's unique recipes.
Join me as I discover my island state and share my life here as a local girl!
Aloha with love,

Real. Local. Non-touristy.

My Hawaii Experience
Living in Hawaii has given me a chance to experience a very unique life full of beautiful views, delicious food, and cool outdoor projects. Check out my most popular blog topics below!
Hawaii Mom Cooks
My Mom (aka Aunty Sandy), began cooking for her family of six from the age of 10 in Taiwan. All of her cooking is done by memory, taste, and feel, and her mental recipes don't have an end.
Translating my Mom's "cook-by-taste" recipes into writing is a labor of love project that I've been working on. Hawaii Mom Cooks is all about documenting her cooking so that I can replicate her dishes in the future. Feel free to comment — she loves to read them!
