Mushroom Galettes

October means the beginning of fall and start of mushroom season. I’ve spent many hours of the past few years harvesting, hiking and foraging wild mushrooms across the Pacific Northwest. Spending time in the forests of Southeast there is a bounty of harvest available when you know what your looking for. Always, always take a […]

Recipe: Ceviche

Oh Ceviche, let me declare my affections for you. Sweet fresh flesh of the sea marinated in heavy citrus and sass, I could eat you at least five days a week! Having at least 2,000 years of culinary archeological history under it’s belt and having a request from my dear Claire, I thought it was […]

Patriotic Currant Cake

Currants are rich in antioxidants, manganese, potassium, dietary fiber and vitamin C.  I love them in jellies and jams, I’m known for going to great lengths to get currants, (and other berries) Warren Cove, on Warren Island on the Central Southeast Coast has some amazing wild currant bushes and I still have one coveted jar […]

Zucchini lasagna Boats

Boating season is in full swing and for some reason I always equate summertime to lasagna, maybe it’s because I spend so much time in the summer at the ball field that an awesome light summer vegetable filled casserole dish that creates hearty leftovers is exactly what my family needs. I also love squash, from […]

Ode to Spring Salmon Rich in the long chain Omega-3 Fatty Acids, unlike most other fats, omega-3 fats are considered “essential”, meaning you must get them from your diet since your body cannot produce them alone.

GMO March Madness

I wanted to share with you all a new book that came out a few weeks ago; GMO Free Child by April Scott, “the Clean Food Advocate.” It’s a parent’s guide to dietary clean-up of genetically modified organisms. I mention this book not only because a friend wrote it, but I’m also in it, and […]

Holiday Drink Specials Edition

As some of you may know I was a bartender, and bar manager for many a wild and zany shifts across Southeast Alaska. 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 […]

cornbread

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 […]

Coriander-Crusted Venison Steak with Miso Butter Sauce

Fall Rituals It’s that time of year, the leaves have changed, the salmon runs have died off and a faint view of termination dust in the mountains starts driving the deer closer to the beach in search of last meals before winter sets in. It’s hunting season again in Southeast! Having grown up in logging […]

Recipe: Fish Pie

I thought it is an important time to recognize our British explorers, and it’s a great time to talk about fish pies. Not traditionally known for their great cuisine, but coming up in ranks of style and taste. Southeast Alaska shares a lot in common with the same latitude, cool marine climate and forest biome. […]

Barbecue

Jamaican Jerk BBQ Chicken

The epitome of summer is barbecue foods, comfort foods best enjoyed in sunshine, with friends and family.  Nothing makes me think of Father’s day or summer fishing and camping trips more than camp foods.  I took an amazing trip to Jamaica years ago and fell in love with jerked foods.   What specifically is “jerk” […]
