Saucy, Till the Burnt End

Saucy, Till the Burnt End

All my life I live in cities surrounded by water – the Pacific Ocean to be exact. And I’ve only traveled to countries and cities which I can still see water on the horizon. Yes, I admit, I’m less than familiar with what goes on […]

Hey, Soul Sister

Hey, Soul Sister

I’ve never really believed in having a soul sister…until now, that is. This month’s food diary comes from a dear friend of mine who I met at, yet again, the magical yoga studio I keep talking about. I remember the first time I met Toni, […]

Celebrating Our Roots

Celebrating Our Roots

Hi friends! I’m delighted to share this month’s comfort food diary for many reasons. The first reason is because it comes from a friend of mine who I met just over a year ago, and thanks to whom I became so involved in many of […]

Comfort Food, A Ritual

Comfort Food, A Ritual

Ironically, this month’s lighthearted diary comes from a woman who is an expert in the art of making people feel comfy, safe, supported, and held – much like the effects of comfort food.¬†She has been putting me in to cozy yoga shapes every single week […]

Guri-Guri : Sweet, Soft Hues of Sentiment

Guri-Guri : Sweet, Soft Hues of Sentiment

Between juggling yoga school, work, and doing laundry I haven’t had much time to write for Cozy lately. But the Comfort Food Diary of the month is one thing I will absolutely not miss – or so help me because these nostalgic pieces are the […]

Reflections : A Year in the Life of Cozy

Reflections : A Year in the Life of Cozy

It’s not about the destination, they say. It’s about the journey. To be aimless is not to wander or be lost, it is to be present in your journey. Indeed these words, shamelessly paraphrased from a Saturday morning yoga class, left me inspired to reflect […]

Out Cold…In coming, Hot Soup!

Out Cold…In coming, Hot Soup!

Hi Cozy followers, if you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to since returning from my New Year’s travels…the answer is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I fell to one of the worst cases of the flu I have ever had. It all started last week Sunday when […]

The Most Important Bite of the Year

The Most Important Bite of the Year

A little bit obsessive. A little bit ritualistic. A little time honored family tradition is what my New Year’s boils down to, literally. Waiting 364 days to gulp down a soup very few people on this earth know how to make. The traditions of my […]

Comfort Just Around the Corner

Comfort Just Around the Corner

When you grow up in Hawaii and move away, we’re given what I like to call a sixth sense that let’s us identify any other Hawaii local no matter where we are in the world. And if you end up talking story with that person, […]
