*claps* Pictures pictures!

And birthday presents to yourself are always the best ones... always so appropriate! ;-P


hiya Reid
1000 Recipes sound fun! I cant wait to see your contribution. ;-)



And another surprise: check out the current HONOLULU WEEKLY. They have a feature on local blogs, including yours!

As another Oahu resident who loves to eat, I've been following your blog for a while, but never posted a comment before. I'm inspired to start my own food blog as an outlet for sharing my "weird" hobby of taking pictures of my food..never got around to it though. Plus, my pictures make the food look like it's radioactive...ah well..

Keep up the great "ono kine" pictures and blogs!


Reid, yeah I certainly took more than my fair time with book #1, but I'm glad it made it to you safe and sound. Congrats on the mention in the Honolulu Weekly. I had a brief exchange with the article's author, and it sounds like you were a primary source for him.


Cool.. :)


Hi AG,

The pictures are up now! =)

Hi pinkcocoa,

My additions to Book 1 are not too special! I hope we all get to see the results of all the books soon.

Hi Naomi,

Thanks for stopping by.

You should definitely start a blog, especially a food based one. Here in Hawaii, I find that there aren't many of us who love to eat, and take pictures of our food, AND post them on the web! =) We just love to eat, don't we?

If you have any questions, let me know! BTW...I'm glad you finally commented. =)

Hi Alan,

Thank you. =)

I didn't actually have the opportunity to talk to Larry. The only thing I did was send him an e-mail. In fact, I was trying to talk him out of mentioning my blog in his piece...I'm not really one for "exposure". Most of the folks that I work with read the Weekly, and I didn't want to be "found out".

Hi MrsT,



hi reid! glad you liked the spambox. have you tried the spicy one yet? it's realllllly spicy! happy belated birthday again :-)


Hi Santos,

I haven't tried the Hot & Spicy yet, but I saw on the can that it has TABASCO® in it. I'm sure it's great! Thanks for the birthday wish...but I'm the one that should be thanking you for your thoughtfulness.


Jamaica Bob

Mmmm, Jamaican Jerk I can think of many ways to use that up!

  • Canoneos5d
    Canon EOS 5D

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

  • Dscu40r
    Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-U40

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
