Pacific Cod with Grapefruit and Avocado

Okay, I’ve been off on a bit of a rant lately, so I figured it’s time to get back to the core of what this blog should be about. Not to mention that Valentine’s Day is soon upon us, and this works great as an easy dinner for 2. So today I give you anotherContinue reading “Pacific Cod with Grapefruit and Avocado”

Alaskan Cod/Halibut on Pineapple Planks

We love fish, but after a while it all starts to taste the same. Smoked, grilled, grilled on cedar planks, steamed, it all gets boring after a while. Sure, you can make heavy sauces and such but that’s just masking the fish. I wanted something new that would allow me to have a new taste,Continue reading “Alaskan Cod/Halibut on Pineapple Planks”

Chicken Paprikash

Chicken Paprikash has a lot of different variations, usually dependent upon the area. It can range from a creamy brown sauce to a deep red. Some variations don’t even have noodles or haluskis. Just a reminder for folks, we called our dumplings “Haluski”. I know there are dishes out there called Haluski, but what canContinue reading “Chicken Paprikash”

Cornish Game Hens

Now, it’s even better with the addition of of the hotel next to the Casino that opened last summer. Highly recommend this place for locals as it’s aContinue reading “Tulalip Resort Casino Trip”

Yakima Valley Wine Trip

The past weekend Beth and I headed off to wine country on the first trip of the season. Passes were clear and the weather forecast was calling for 70’s and sun. That’s all we needed to hear. Car packed with a few goodies, we hit the road. Oh, one thing before we continue the trip.Continue reading “Yakima Valley Wine Trip”

Halibut and Scallops with Ceviche

Last Saturday was an “SiS.” Stay in Saturday. I like those kind of days because it means I get to cook and try new things. It’s been a while since we’ve had ceviche, so I headed to the market with the idea of getting “fixins” to make one, and see what else looked good forContinue reading “Halibut and Scallops with Ceviche”
