Ant infestation covers 4 acres in Waimanalo

HONOLULU — An extensive survey of an area in Waimanalo has determined approximately 4 acres are infested with little fire ants, tiny invasive ants that can inflict painful stings. Crews surveyed more than 50 acres from Kumuhau Street to Mahailua Street in Waimanalo and determined that the infestation area is on state land and in mulch areas located outside nurseries in that area. Little fire ants were detected previously on hapuu from Hawaii Island at a few nurseries and garden shops earlier this year, but those areas were treated and are now clear of little fire ants.

A quick take on a Chinese classic

This is a quick take on a popular Chinese classic. It’s made with sauteed pork tenderloin and shredded cabbage, which cook in just a few minutes in a hot wok. I have used whole wheat tortillas as the wrap.

Taxes done? Just in time for Passover treats

Tonight ends another glorious episode of number crunching for the income tax deadline, just as Passover begins. What a perfect time to offer some Jewish comfort food: Passover desserts. Although they are mostly a tradition enjoyed in the Jewish faith, these treats are delicious to serve any day, for anyone. They can be a little challenging to make because flour and leavening agents are not allowed on Passover. You can substitute potato starch for matzo meal, which is made from ground matzo. This is available in most major supermarkets. Whichever recipes you try, I bet you won’t wait until Passover comes to make them again.
