Maui Sunrise Burger

This has to be one of my absolute favorite burgers! The perfect mixture of sweet and savory, fruit and meat. This burger brings you the flavors of the island state even when you can't visit the tropical paradise. Grilled pineapple, caramelized bacon, ham, and apple- are you drooling yet?

3/4 Cup Pineapple Juice

In a mixer with a bread hook attached, dissolve yeast with cream. Let sit for 5 minutes, then whisk in coconut oil, egg, pineapple juice, raw sugar and salt. Turn the mixer on slow and add flour until the dough forms a ball pulling away from the edges of the bowl. Turn dough onto a floured surface and kneed until smooth. Place in an oiled bowl and cover with oiled plastic wrap, leave in a warm place until doubled in size. Punch the dough back down and divide into 12 pieces. Place in a 9x13 baking dish, return to warm place for 30 minutes. Gently brush the glaze over the rolls. Bake at 375 for 23 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.


Spread honey mustard on one side of the bun and mayonnaise on the other. Set patty on one bun, top with lettuce, ham, bacon and pineapple. Drizzle honey mustard over the top and serve on your favorite tropical plate!

One Ocean Sea World Show

Last year we had the wonderful opportunity to visit Sea World, for the first time in many years. As always it wasn't a letdown!

While there we decided to watch the One Ocean show, dad wanted to sit in the splash zone- we out voted him. Somehow gallons of water in the middle of January and cameras don't seem to go well together.

This show was fun, upbeat and if you happen to sit in the splash zone- wet! These creatures are amazing up close!

It made me wish we had more time to spend here.

They are such amazing creatures.  So huge and powerful - so beautiful.

Every time I see them and makes me love the creatures of the ocean more and more.

Time for a snack. I could use one too, just not raw fish!

Dolphin Show At Sea World

Sea World has to be one of my favorite places! I love how magical it is, like being a kid... anything could happen. I've been here twice in my life, once for my second birthday and the second time for an early birthday present for my 18th birthday. I have to say, it's a great birthday present.

This show was amazing! I absolutely love dolphins so this was spectacular!

This show is so fun, and probably my favorite of all the ones Sea World offers.

I always liked dolphins but I really fell in love with them after Sea World. They taught me a lot about marine life and made me passionate about them.

They are creative and smart and love to have fun.

I could not believe their agility and their relationship with one another.

It made me want to study more about them, which is a good thing!


Look at that adorable face.  Such an amazing animal!

Such strength.  I had no idea they could jump so high or flip like this before going.

I love this one, it l…

SeaWorld | California Trip Day 5

Darling it's better, down where it's wetter, under the sea. Admit it. You heard Sebastian from little mermaid's voice in your head didn't you?

Today we are heading to SeaWorld!

The last time we were here was for my second birthday.

There aren't a lot of people here because it rained this morning. I feel a lot better this morning.

But I can't smell anything. Grrrrrr! This darn cold morphs into something else everyday! We are just a skip from the beach, Mrs. Cottage and Brianna keep saying it smells wonderful. I can't smell anything so I don't know, but I can taste it! That's better than nothing I guess.

By the way, those cleaner fish in the picture up above were awesome! Seriously I want some!

There are so many amazing creatures here! Some I wouldn't want to meet in the wild, though. Some of the fish were absolutely stunning!

This pretty bird just was hanging out watching us as we said hello to the sea lions.  He didn't mind getting close en…
