Happy Aloha Friday!! Celebrate with my Aloha Friday Martini aka Pineapple Coconut Martini.
I find it funny when people see my blog name and think that either my recipes have pineapple and coconut in them OR that I think all Hawaiian recipes have pineapple and coconut in them OR that I have no clue about Hawaiian culture and cuisine and think adding in pineapple and or coconut makes the Hawaiian. Which all of the above isn’t true at all. Even though I made a pineapple coconut martini for this post, I do see the irony, but I actually know that the pineapple didn’t originate in Hawaii and neither did the coconut. But there are many people out there that associate both with Hawaii.
My blog name. Pineapple and Coconut. If you head to my ABOUT section you can read all about it, but in a nutshell those were the nicknames of my daughters when I was pregnant with them since I wasn’t disclosing their real names until after they were born. Simple as that. I do happen to love the foods and adding them into my recipes but that is the meaning behind my blog name.
