It has been a fantastic journey with all the food blogging I have done since the inception of this blog in 2009. I really have eaten some fantastic things and created some amazing memories with friends, food and fun. What more can you ask for right?
I look back at how crappy my pictures used to be and am really proud of the strides I have made to improve the look and feel of this blog. It is with this effort in mind, that I have made the jump to Wordpress. Please follow me at my new site, Overworked. Underfed., where I plan to continue cooking, eating, and sharing. Fooding is hard work.

I had a lot of random sweet treats in Maui, which I decided to smush into one entry.
Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice
Of course, I had Ululani shaved ice. It's like the Starbucks of Maui. It's everywhere you turn, on every corner. It turned out to be better than what I imagined for Hawaiian shaved ice. The shaved ice I've had before was pretty icy and crunchy. The flavoring was like dyed sugary syrup. I'm not sure how they make their shaved ice at Ulalani but the ice is smooth and the flavor doesn't taste like it was just dumped on top from a squeeze bottle.
Mango, Passionfruit, Strawberry, Coconut Pudding (Haupia)
The shaved ice was pretty tasty, but it was hard for me to tell which flavor was what. It all kinda blended together. The most interesting part was the haupia, which I thought was going to be weird because I'm not a huge fan of coconut. It actually added a creamy richness to the cool icy fruitiness. You have to get the haupia at the bottom!

We had our last dinner in Maui at this local favorite. While the menu prices rivaled those of Lahaina Grill, the white linen and suited waiters was replaced by blue Hawaiian patterns and casual button ups. The food is less fancy, but still tasty. We were kind of in a hurry to get through our meal since some people in our party were trying to catch flights to the airport that same night.
Bread & Butter
Warm and soft.
Cream of Mushroom Soup
Compliments of the house. Solid.

So my favorite part of Maui was watching the sun rise at Haleakala Crater. It was pretty painful waking up so early and driving up the windy mountain, only to wait for over an hour for the sun to rise in the blustery cold. The picture does not do the experience justice. You feel like you're on top of the world. Watching it from above the clouds as golden rays of sunshine are about to drown the world in the warmth of its light. Before you know it, night becomes day within minutes.
I totally passed out on the way back down the mountain and woke up as we were arriving to Kihei Caffe. It's a local joint, very Hawaiian, and very laid back. You stand in line, pay for your order, and they bring the food to your table. The food is equally as unpretentious as the setting.
Breakfast Burrito eggs, cheese, home fries, salsa, guacamole, jalapeños, flour tortilla
The Flatulent Snorer was adamant about the burrito. I think he was a bit disappointed. There wasn't much too spectacular here.
Pork Fried Rice & Eggs onion, bell peppers, portuguese sausage, ham, bacon
The fried rice was my favorite dish. The combination of portuguese sausage, ham, and bacon created a deliciously smokey, salty, and savory breakfast dish. I would recommend this one.
