Chickpeas, capers and Parmesan aren’t the first ingredients that come to mind when I hear “tuna melt,” but it works. This recipe is amazing. End of story.
I woke up on April Fool’s Day intending to make my favorite Pear Custard Pie recipe. However, one of the required three pears for the recipe was moldy! Fooled, indeed. So I decided to try pear pancakes. Thankfully, I found this recipe for silver dollar pear pancakes, although I used just a basic pancake recipe for the batter. I halved the recipe for the pears and glaze, but still had a huge pile of pear rings so I ended up doubling the batter recipe. This was super simple – pretty much all you do is dip the pear rings in a maple syrup and cinnamon glaze and then fry them for a minute before you pour the pancake batter over them. Delicious!
2 people + 30 pancakes = breakfast for a week. Nom nom.

- Hanging out with two of our favorite people and showing off our new town.
- Lunches at Prima in Kailua.
- Playing tourist.
- Pie at Camille’s on Wheels
- Kayaking Kaneohe Bay
- The Monkey Bowl and Ginger Ono smoothie at Lanikai Juice
- Sunset at Shark’s Cove
- Strolling on the beach (so what if it makes me happy every month!)
- Checking out the Byodo-in Temple – it’s been quite a few years since I last visited here!
- Stumbling upon beautiful creations on the beach.
