Baked Lemon & Dill Trout

If you know me really well, you’ll have already furrowed your brow, squinted at the screen and said “What in the…?” because those who know me well, know that I don’t like seafood. None of it. Zero. I’ve tried it all, many times. I just don’t have a taste for it. It’s really too bad, seeing as we live in the Pacific Northwest and fresh salmon, halibut, trout, to name a few are at your fingertips at every store and market.

Hearts a Plenty

Ahhh Valentine’s Day. I can’t say I’m a big fan or make too much out of it. It’s so commercial.

Chicken, Broccoli & Cheese, Rice Casserole

Earlier this week, we got our first snowfall out here in the Pacific Northwest. Every area got different amounts, but here in Arlington, we got 9 inches over about a day and a half. This is sort of rare for our area. We do get a little snow every year around this time but not nearly as much as we did this time. I was as excited as our three year old!

Scarlett Homestead White Sandwich Bread

I have finally done it. After months of teaching myself how to make good bread, and kneading dough until I understand how it should feel to know whether or not it’s done (not so long ago I couldn’t knead dough and have it turn out properly so I swore off of it completely. Luckily that didn’t last), I have finally cracked the code on my arch nemesis – white sandwich bread.
