  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • ½ tsp. salt

As mentioned in my first recipe blog, Hawaii is a wonderful mix of cultures and each of these peoples brought with them their customs and foods during the early plantation days. Because we have this rich Hawaiian heritage, I started this running blog that features recipes with a Hawaiian flair.
