Leftover Salmon

March 5, 2012


Sometimes leftover salmon can taste as good as freshly cooked salmon, especially if you have just finished a satisfying ski. Earlier this season I shared a couple of bites of leftover Bristol Bay Naknek River King Salmon belly with my friend Jen in the Eaglecrest parking lot after we had taken some runs together and […]

BabyCakes for My Babies

March 2, 2012


The ground is covered with snow and I am certain that the mountain is freshly blanketed after last night, but I have a recipe that I would like to share with you before I head up to Eaglecrest. My kids can’t eat wheat, are allergic to eggs and nuts, and my son can’t have dairy. […]

Staying Hungry

March 1, 2012


I was compelled to head up to Eaglecrest early this morning to look for some untracked snow after the two day closure, but by the time I was done with some morning business on the computer it was snowing like mad. Now I don’t feel so rushed to get up to the mountain and enjoy […]

Up A Creek

February 29, 2012


No paddle, don’t need one; I’ve got my skis. Checking out the Juneau Nordic Ski Club Trail Condition Forum yesterday before heading out to the Mendenhall Valley revealed that one of the volunteer track-setters was planning on heading out to set a track at Montana Creek. Eager to check out that trail, I made a […]

It’s Your Birthday!

February 28, 2012


One of my sisters is marking the anniversary of her birth today. She is tiny and tough with a will to conquer any obstacle and determination to reach any goal she has set her sights on. If she were closer I would make her a nice dinner with wine pairings. As it is, the lives […]

Said Location

February 27, 2012


Juneau has gotten a lot of snow in the past couple of days, even at sea level. Today has been a day of obligations that have kept me from getting out in it. Getting on my skis usually provides a means of clearing my head and making room for thoughts to flow around. Without that […]

Cold Day, Spicy Salad, Warm Hearts

February 25, 2012


It is another clear and cold day in Juneau. The sun is streaming through the windows and it feels wonderful. My daughter and I are going to head up to the mountain as soon as this post goes live. We are expecting company tonight and my husband will be cooking the bulk of the food, […]

Wild Fish Elegance

February 20, 2012


My kids are home from school because of Presidents’ Day and we are taking it slow. Lots of wet snow fell down here at sea level last night and into the morning, and I am sure that a lot of wonderful “Champagne” powder fell on Eaglecrest last night. Achh! I try not to think of […]

Smoke Perfume

February 17, 2012


More snow fell on Eaglecrest last night and I headed up to do some downhill and cross-country skiing. The sun broke through the fog just as I got to the top and I went in search of some untouched powder. I got a little mad at myself for being chicken on a steep chute, but […]
