The best salmon I ever ate was smoked in a tiny shack out on the Olympic Peninsula. It was king salmon, smoked in an old oil drum over wet alderwood, in Makah, a small fishing village on the Reservation of the same name. I'm talking about salmon that someone had placed in the smoker only… MORE

I guess I don’t understand people who are always learning things the easy way. It seems kind of show-offy to me. Personally, I learn by means of a steady stream of “teachable moment” humiliations and personal catastrophes, the harsh memories of which prevent me from repeating them. That's the… MORE

I count on Seattle summers being short and sort of a joke. Their brevity and my inability to take them seriously make them easy to live through without any A/C in the house. If you live in parts of the country where folks suffer real summers, you probably think the notion of a Seattle heatwave… MORE

Honestly, I’m trying to move on. But I just cannot get away from the topic of crazy state liquor laws.   In the paper this morning, I read where a completely harmless vintage advertisement for a bicycle company has given the Alabama Beverage control board fits of the vapors. The ad… MORE

If you followed along with the “weird state liquor laws” post from a couple weeks ago, then you might recall that Pennsylvania was right up there among the wackiest of the whack. (Scroll down that post to read lovestohost’s comments about PA’s liquor laws.) Anyway, I raise PA again… MORE

Normally, my friends invite me to various functions out of politeness.  Before you jump to conclusions about the type of friends I have...they are totally right to not expect me.  I work three 12hr shifts at a hospital on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.  This schedule… MORE

Rum? Madiera? Possibly. Or maybe George Washington would share a bottle of bordeaux with Thomas Jefferson, sipping as they stand around the Weber kettle flipping burgers and turning dogs. Of course, it’s also true that both Washington and Jefferson distilled whiskey. Perhaps they’d lift some… MORE

I love Boursin Cheese but it is expensive.  It will cost you closed to $6.00 for a 4 ounce small round of cheese at the local supermarket.  The last time I was eating some Boursin, I realized that the base is very similar to a torta I make.  I thought I should see if I… MORE

The Friday Night Cocktail Club is hindered somewhat by geography. Stranded way out here in the Northwest corner of the country, we’re left to read about the cocktails of sunnier climes, concoctions made with fresh fruits that we have yet to see in our farmers’ markets. I’m thinking of you,… MORE

Gin. Now there’s a drink with an image problem. Or maybe it’s just me. For a while there, the mere mention of the word was enough to make me shudder. That could be because one very bad night with “the mother’s ruin” once left my mouth feeling like I’d crawled tongue-first up a Juniper tree,… MORE
