All who love salmon have their own special way of preparing it. At the 25th Annual International Pinot Noir Celebration in McMinnville, OR I bore witness to yet another way that salmon can be prepared and it was a grand spectacle, befitting of the celebration. For this special evening king salmon from Neah Bay […]

It is always jarring to return to the world outside of Bristol Bay after a season of commercial salmon fishing. The summer is full of intensity, but at the same time there is a sense of being away from it all. This year I will be making a further departure from Naknek, the town and […]

Recently the secret of opening a mango was revealed to me and it has been a revelation indeed. I am sure that some of you already knew how to maximize the amount of flesh you can procure from the seed, but thanks to Gary and Rita Stevens, my ability to enjoy this fruit more fully […]

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 […]

Today I just want to share a wine that I think is worth seeking out by any lover of bubbles. Le Brut Rosé de Baumard, Crémant de Loire is lovely and versatile, yet affordable. I first found out about it because it was amongst a group of bubbly bottles that my husband gifted me with […]

We enjoyed another sunny day in Juneau and it was so nice getting out for a skate ski. It was true spring skiing with the snow turning mushy and wet in some spots and I didn’t even need to wear a hat while I was out. I’m loving it. The weather inspired me to go […]

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 […]

This morning as I was checking my Facebook feed, this is what the Eaglecrest Ski Area homepage posted, “Over 24 inches of wet heavy snow since Monday! Snow and weather conditions will delay the opening of our lifts this morning. Patrol will be doing control work on the entire mountain – no uphill access above […]

It is still snowing outside, sort of. It’s above freezing and I see white falling, but when it hits the ground it becomes water and is flattening out all of the fluffy snow that started falling a couple of days ago. I will get out later for a skate ski, but I’m in no hurry […]

We have gotten over a foot of snow during the past couple of days. As a skier I should be ecstatic, but I find myself feeling grumbly and frustrated. Part of me wants to tell myself; “…itsa notso bad, aw shuttuppa yo face!” like that old silly song. (You don’t know what I’m talking about […]
