As the rain pours down endlessly, I can’t help but want to switch on the oven and pull out some of my favorite baking recipes. The cold and damp weather makes for a comforting and cozy weekend inside. Perhaps we will venture out around the island and try to find some sun. It has been so cold here that it even snowed on Haleakalā, the 10k ft crater, nearly 6 inches! When I saw it for the first time one morning, it stopped me in my tracks. It took me right back home to my wintery home in the Green Mountains and snowy Vermont at this time of year. It is a true delight to see while relaxing on a sunny beach under palm trees and then look up at a snow. Unfortunately the road is closed due to severe ice, but perhaps it will reopen and we definitely will trek up for a snowy excursion!
