Holiday Survival Guide

Happy Holidays! This time of year often brings feelings of glee, twinkling lights, bright cheery smiles and ugly red sweaters, but it can also be a busy and sometimes overwhelming time. The days are darker, gloomier, budgets can be tight, driving is more stressful, the list goes on. So with that I have some personal […]


Contented Christmas Home

Every home has its own traditions for the Christmas season.  Even those who do not intentionally celebrate the holiday can not help but be exposed to and influenced by it.  Christmas permeates our culture, and not just locally but globally.  In one form or another, it has been part of historical celebration since even before […]

Holiday parties are by far the most fun of the Alaskan winter, whether it’s tailgating up at Eaglecrest or bar hopping after the company parties, it’s a joyous tradition. I remember my […]


Organic Cornbread Pudding (Non-GMO)

While few things make me happier than spending the holidays cooking with my family, few vegetables come to mind with less importance at the Plymouth thanksgiving than corn. Maize was ruler of the three sisters (beans, squash and corn) ruled North, Central and South Americas for many generations before the Pilgrims landed. Iroquois legend says […]


Safety First!

Welcome to November! This time of year I usually find myself writing about the holidays, parties, dinners and family time. The theme is usually upbeat and jolly. I am going to deviate from that a little bit so be forewarned. Almost 5 years ago our house was robbed and with the increase in criminal activity […]
