No joke here! As of today this silly little dip has made its way to over 168,300 people on Pinterest alone. I’m sure Hawaiian people would be more than happy to knock a coconut over my head for calling this seriously mainland style dip Hawaiian.
One can dream of vacation destinations in one’s own way. Like you, North Dakota people, if you want to make a recipe covered in ahi tuna and kale then call it Californian, you go for it. You’d also kinda nail it, but that doesn’t matter.
We all dream of warm vacation destinations in our own way.
Short post for the day, just wanted to start talking movies again. The host of depressing, oppressive and lonely movies of the Oscars are almost here, as are the Oscar food posts!
Ooh, one more thing.
My 2016 goal is to create a dip that will blow Hawaiian Dip out of the Pinterest water. Are we connected over on Pinterest?

NOW, back to 2012, minus Gangnam Style
This week will bring lots of movie related posts as the Academy Awards are almost here (Sunday)! Have you seen The Descendants? Yeah, neither has Mr. Movie Fuel, so there won’t be much movie discussion other than what I am about to add. This movie is not meant for Girl’s Night Out. I think the word has gotten out that this movie isn’t just about George Clooney on a beach. It’s a heavy drama with doses of comedy sprinkled in.
If The Descendants is bound to win an Oscar, as many people predict, we might as well have some celebratory food on hand! Movie Fuel will be here on Thursday for our pre-Oscar predictions and some more party food. It’s too bad he isn’t here this morning, we have a super addictive and delicious dip on the table. I hope my kids gobble most of it, because I can’t be trusted around this Hawaiian inspired dip!
This dip could NOT be easier to make!
- 8 oz. cream cheese softened
- 2 1/2 cups sweetened coconut (I prefer flaked over shredded)
- 20 oz. can pineapple (chunks or crushed)
- nuts or cherries to top dip with
- Blend all ingredients together in food processor to crush up pineapple and coconut pieces. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving. I think it tastes great with Trader Joe’s Pita Crackers, but I am sure there are plenty of dipping options you can find!
See you tomorrow, Happy Tuesday friends!
