My quiver has to be stashed somewhere and I find that when I just throw what I think I will need in the back of my car, the conditions at the ski area call for another tool. There are eight pairs of skis back there, if you include my kids’ two pair, and I have […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I am not one to go all out on this holiday, but I thought I would share a great recipe that I found in Wine Spectator’s “A Perfect Match” section last spring. Chef Greg Short of Masa’s in San Francisco came up with a combination that has green in the food […]

This food fight is between the Bristol Bay commercial sockeye salmon industry and multi-national mining conglomerate The Pebble Limited Partnership.

Happy time change everybody. My daughter just did a sleepover with her Girl Scout troop and every other troop in Juneau and she had to be picked up bright and early this morning despite the time change that springs us forward. I’m home, Mari is asleep and my son is awake. All of this early […]

Reblogged from fish*wine*ski: When you think about Bristol Bay, the fishing island of Kodiak is closer than you might realize.

Eaglecrest is calling, but I would like to share some interesting food news with you before I head out. This week Bon Appétit’s online magazine shared a piece by Four Fish author Paul Greenberg about which fish to eat if you are looking for responsible and sustainable seafood choices.
