About

Hello and welcome!

I am Ku'uipo Vea and you just might be looking at all of those vowels and wondering how in the world you say my name.  It is Hawaiian and is pronounced (koo'-oo-ee-poh) and my last name is Tongan and pronounced (vey-uh). Everyone I know just runs it all together and calls me (koo-ee-poh). Easy peasy, right?

Even though I have an awesome Hawaiian name, I was not born in Hawaii and I am not Hawaiian.  I am half-Samoan, half-caucasian,  and I was born and raised in beautiful Utah.  My Polynesian heritage is important to me and I love it.  The culture, tradition and people are all of the things I love.  It is fun, the food delicious and tradition is excellent.

I attended Brigham Young University-Hawaii where I came to love and appreciate my Samoan heritage even more so.  I came home to Utah for winter break and met up with my husband who just returned home from a church mission, and fell in love.

Myron is the kindest man I have ever met.  He is good and encouraging and loving.  He is a hard-worker. We have five daughters together and they are beautiful and amazing and keep us on our toes.

I love food, and I love to create fun, beautiful things.  I love making family-friendly meals that are delicious and easy.  My girls are in the kitchen with me most of the time and will be the first to let me know if a recipe is a keeper or not.  When we aren't baking and cooking  we are usually found creating something. Life is busy but it is great.

Thank you for joining me on our life journey of all things fun, delicious and beautiful. Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback.  I will try my hardest to reply in a timely manner. I'm also a homeschooling mama, so if it takes me a bit, it's probably because we are working on math.
