Grilled Banana Bread…and our Hawaiian Vacation!

Under the shade of an umbrella, reclined in a beach chair with my sandy legs outstretched, in view of coconut trees, paddle surfers and my little kids who are splashing at the edge of the lagoon…this is my paradise. And paradise was reality last week when my family traveled to Hawaii!
I’ve got a slew of fun island highlights from the trip to share with you — including a recipe for Grilled Banana Bread with Caramel Sauce and Haupia (aka coconut sauce) — so grab yourself a mai tai, sit back and experience a little tropical getaway for a few minutes. :-)
Aloooooha! We spent six gorgeous days on Oahu, sunning, swimming, exploring and — of course — eating. We stayed at two resorts in Ko Olina —Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club and Disney’s Aulani — which is on the southwestern side of the island, about 45 minutes from Honolulu. Both resorts are predominantly comprised of villas (complete with a full kitchen and in-unit laundry) which makes it a whole lot easier to travel with the kids than a regular hotel room. The kids enjoyed their nightly “slumber party” in their pull-out beds in the living room, and I was able to run a load of sandy swimsuits in the washer every day. Very convenient!
