In the Islands there is a phrase we use called..."Talk Story" where family and friends gather and talk, laugh, listen, eat, and have a good time. During my youth, I loved talking story and that is when I learned all about my family and culture while eating a variety of Hawaiian, Japanese, Filipino, Chinese, Portuguese and all kinds of other ethnic foods. I like to talk about cooking and baking because there's so much more that goes into the dishes then what you see in the end. I do cook some of the Local Island foods for my family and friends, but lately I have been craving specific ones that I want to share with you and "talk story".
Count down to Halloween (10/01/14)
Hawaiian Sweet Rolls (9/01/14)
This week I am craving Hawaiian Sweet Rolls. It's a taste of "Aloha" that can be eaten by itself, used for sandwiches or a side. My mother would make these and the aroma of rising and baking bread would fill our home. One pan was never enough for my family and I loved the smell and taste of fresh rolls right from the oven. If it wasn't gone before the next day, we dipped it in hot cocoa when I was little. Today, it still disappears quickly among my own kids and I still dip my bread in hot cocoa. It's delicious no matter how you choose to eat it!
As you can tell, I've been expanding and experimenting on these rolls and now have Sweet:
Cinnamon Rolls, Bread Loaves: in Guava or Pineapple and roll rounds.
