  • Hawaiian Electric - Fundraiser Cookbook Features Favorite "Go-To" Recipes

Fundraiser cookbook features favorite "go-to" recipes

Proceeds to benefit Aloha United Way

Everyday Recipes for Everyday Energy, Hawaiian Electric's new cookbook to raise funds for Aloha United Way, is now available. The soft cover, spiral-bound collection of more than 100 kitchen-tested recipes from employees, retirees and their families is $14 and includes a foldable stand feature for hands-free viewing. All proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will help benefit Aloha United Way and its partner agencies that provide programs, services and resources to build a stronger, healthier community.

This latest cookbook highlights favorite "go-to" recipes for energizing busy lives using pantry staples, local produce, popular seasonings, and homegrown ingenuity in the kitchen. For example, a Spicy Spam Slider pairs Hawaiian sweet rolls with the ubiquitous canned meat and a dab of Sriracha mayonnaise for a unique twist on a popular item. A can of cola tops off a Korean Slow Cooker Pulled Pork dish, while lumpia wrappers are stuffed and fried to golden perfection as an Apple Pie Dessert and Banana Lumpia.

Novice and experienced home cooks will appreciate the simple categorized format and tips for saving energy in the kitchen. While some recipes may be more complex, such as a Shrimp Creole dish or a Pozole Rojo, the step-by-step directions are easy to follow.

Just for the holidays, gift-wrapped copies of the cookbook will be available in limited quantities at these holiday craft fairs:

About Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO)
For more than 100 years, Hawaiian Electric Company has provided the energy that has fueled the islands' development from a Hawaiian kingdom to a modern state. Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc. (HECO), and its subsidiaries, Maui Electric Company, Ltd. (MECO), and Hawaii Electric Light Company, Inc. (HELCO), serves 95% of the state's 1.2 million residents on the islands of O`ahu, Maui, Hawai`i Island, Lana`i and Moloka`i.

The energy we use is an essential but limited resource necessary to maintaining our quality of life. In a changing world, Hawaiian Electric has evolved to offer more than electricity.

Today, the company also provides energy solutions to help customers save money and use energy more efficiently. Hawaiian Electric also continues to pursue the use of more clean, renewable energy alternatives to help ensure a sustainable future for our islands.


Hawaiian Electric Company is dedicated to our community in which we live, work and serve. Rooted in Hawaii and one of the largest companies in the State, Hawaiian Electric takes the concept of malama pono -- to care for and serve -- to heart. The company and our employees have a long tradition of contributing with dollars, time and talent. Corporate citizenship is crucial to Hawaiian Electric's overall business plan because strong communities are essential to the success of the company, our employees and our customers.

Company and employee volunteerism is encouraged and every month, employees walk, run or provide manpower to dozens of non-profits throughout the State. Hawaiian Electric's corporate giving philosophy gives priority to projects that help families, promote education and protect the environment.

The company also sponsors robotics programs and events that promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) education, as well as the SunPower for Schools program bringing solar electric power to select schools, the Solar Sprint event where students design, build and race cars using solar power, and the Home Energy Challenge, a school-based competition encouraging elementary school students and their families to reduce energy use at home, among other programs.

For nearly a decade, Hawaiian Electric volunteers have provided manpower, bucket trucks and ladders to install Christmas lights at the Kaimuki Community Park and playground before the annual Kaimuki Christmas Parade in December.
