My husband and I love to visit the island of Maui..."the Valley Isle". Warm water and cooling trade winds are part of what makes this place paradise. Culinary traditions in Hawaii are centered around local produce . (exception is Spam). Our little house by the sea is surrounded by lots of coconut trees. Because I can't handle a machete' like the local boys, I buy canned or bottled coconut milk. On a tropical island rum is always an option. Macadamia nuts are also everywhere. This makes a sweet ending to a Hawaiian feast. —dymnyno
