Orange Julius


1-6 oz. can frozen orange juice concentrate

1 cup water

1 cup milk

½ cup sugar

½ tsp. Vanilla

12 whole ice cubes (about 2 full cups)


Combine all ingredients in a blender and whip until smooth!

Hawaiian Pancakes:


1 cup flour (whole wheat flour or combination)

1 cup buttermilk

1 large whole egg

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

1 tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt


Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix together. Heat a griddle/ large frying pan to medium heat (350F). Grease with a food spray, butter or drizzle a small amount of oil onto the pan and spread the oil around with a spatula. Drop the batter onto the griddle or pan. As soon as the batter is on the griddle, drop a few pieces of pineapple, macadamia nuts, shredded coconut (raw or seared), cinnamon-sugar and oats onto the raw batter. Flip the pancakes over and cook the side with all the goodies added to it. Cook it for as long as you can before they get dark. When done, remove and serve with syrup or any topping you’d like!

Techniques for Cooking Perfect Scrambled Eggs with Bacon:

In a small bowl crack the number of eggs you intend to cook and beat them lightly with a fork. Add a teaspoon of water for each egg you use and beat that with the eggs. The water will provide the necessary moisture that will be lost during the quick cooking period and will help keep your eggs light and tender.In place of water you can use milk or cream… YUM!

Place your pan over medium heat to warm. Add a little oil or butter and swirl around the pan to completely coat the bottom and some of the sides. 

Pour the eggs into a properly heated or greased pan and let them sit for a few seconds. As the edges start to cook, take a wooden spoon or a temperature-tolerant rubber spatula and move the outer edges of the eggs to the center of the pan. 

Add your cooked, chopped bacon to the eggs. Let the eggs sit and repeat this motion until the eggs are no longer liquid.

Turn off the burner and let the heat of the pan finish cooking the eggs as you gently stir them. Serve immediately!
