Summer in Waikiki

A glimpse of Waikiki on Summer season. No wonder locals does not want to hang out at Waikiki that much because it's always jum packed with tourist and the scent of suntan lotion on the water. It's so hard to find a spot to lay your towel this time of the year, it's really packed with people.
But when you love music and crowd then this is the place to go. Head on by the Duke's and hang on till 4pm and you will enjoy live local entertainment.

Fruits and Nuts Bars

The inspiration of this bar is a store bought Fruit & Nuts bar that I have tasted last week. I like it so I came home and full a recipe online, but I do it my way as always, so from the online recipe i plus and minus some of the ingredients because I want the ingredients to balance.
Here it is;

2 cups all purpose Flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1-1/2 cup Brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups Dried mix fruits (figs, apricots, pears, plums, cherries, peaches)
1/2 cup Raisin or craisins
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 small packet instant oats (cinnamon flavor or what you desired)
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil

Heat oven on 350. Mix all dry ingredients till it's incorporated. Slightly beat egg, add vanilla and sugar then mix to the dry ingredients. Add dried fruits and nuts and mix using your hands until all is well blend. For a fancy look, pour them all in a round or square cake pan and packed, then flip it over on a cutting board and slice triangular depending on your desired size. Place it on a cookie sheet half inches apart and bake for 30 minutes on 350. Enjoy!
