A comment to Mike Harvey about Binky the Polar Bear... Of course, we Alaskans would never allow Binky to be put down!  It definitely wasn't his fault.  And besides, anyone who is willing to squeeze through/around/vault over three barriers deserve a "reward" for his or her efforts -- which… MORE

It's the same thing each year -- in search of the best homemade egg nog. I do love my egg nog.  And yes, I do use raw eggs.  Hey!  Anyone that will eat sushi, sashimi, and cerviche has gotta drink egg nog.  Why?  Because the alcohol literally pickles/cooks the egg proteins and acts as an… MORE

About Me
I have lived many places, including Amish Country in Ohio, but Alaska is the place I adore. I get all my seafood from Peninsula Seafoods, including wild white King Salmon, and King Crab at $9.95 a pound! I love the summers where it is just around sunset all night long! And on the Summer Solstice, we'll either stay up all night with the Dragon Drummers or go fishing in the middle of the night. In the Winter, we hibernate and eat comfort food.
My favorite things to cook
I LUV to grill! I'll grill all the veggies in my house once I get my charcoal grill going. I also love Asian cooking, especially Japanese, but Kalbi is my all-time favorite meat to grill.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother on my mother's side left me a lot of her authentic Slovak recipes which I adore. I also tried to learn as much from my Uncle Bob who is a chef extraordinaire.
My cooking triumphs
Anything seafood and noodles. In fact, I make my own pasta because it tastes so much better and soaks up the flavors of my sauces.
My cooking tragedies
Lately, I really screwed up meatloaf. And some goolash I recently did. Yuck!!! How can anyone mess up on these two entrees?? I guess I can...
