Blender Drinks
“For parties I make a whole pitcher of something, like a slushy, rum-spiked mango-pineapple cocktail. That way, I can easily pour my friends a glass or, 
if I’m answering the door or pulling something out of the oven, guests can serve themselves and each other. It saves me from running around like a headless chook.”

Go-to Snack
“I make a chunky guacamole and something I call ‘mouth-on-fire salsa’ because of all the chiles I throw in. And I make corn chips. I’ll let you 
in on a secret: Corn chips are made by tearing up corn tortillas and frying them in oil until they’re golden brown and delicious. Simple, right?”

Taco Time
“I’ve been making tacos ever since I tried the mahimahi ones at Maui’s Paia Fish Market after I first moved to the States. I stumbled across them when 
I went to Hawaii to get back on my neglected surfboard.”

Best Summer Moment
“My wedding day in Majorca, Spain, in 2013. I’m turning 40 this year, and we’re hoping to go back to celebrate.”
