Archive for the ‘Wild Alaska Seafood’ category

As many of you know, I am a big fan of Alaska seafood. When we lived in Anchorage, I had the wonderful opportunity to cook and catch numerous species of fish from the region’s icy waters.
Without a doubt, I had some of the best and freshest halibut one day when I purchased it [...]

Oh my.
It has been ages since I’ve posted here. It was a busy summer!  I’ve been posting regularly at Amazon’s Al Dente blog, so here’s the link to my contributor’s page. In the last few months, I’ve written nearly sixty posts so there’s lots to read.
Recently, I reviewed the NEW KitchenAid Pasta Press, which is a nice [...]

The boys in my house love to watch the Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch. I watch the show, but I shudder at the magnitude of the job and the task at hand.

Haliburgers

April 29th, 2009

What’s for dinner at my house tonight? Halibut.
My husband and sons love to fish the cold offshore waters here in the Pacific Northwest. As a result, my freezer boasts a hefty stockpile of halibut, salmon and lingcod. I’ve learned to use my wild-caught fish in an infinite number of family friendly dishes. One of [...]

My No Guilt Cookbooks

April 19th, 2009

When I dashed out the door yesterday at 8:15, I had a very definite destination–The Seattle Public Library’s Friends of the Library Book Sale.
