Happy Aloha Friday! We had an exceptional week and hope you did too. Last Sunday, our article “How to grapple with star apple” ran in The Garden Island newspaper.  I had star apple a couple of years ago, but didn’t like the latex coating it left in my mouth.

I made a wonderful beef stew this week and will share the recipe soon. I want to make it one more time to get it absolutely perfect.

Last Wednesday, our article “Spring cleaning with juice” ran in The Garden Island newspaper. This is the third cleanse I have done, and I have to say it’s the easiest.
