Salmon with Crispy Rice Cakes and Smoky Date “Not Ketchup”.

The day after our “A Taste of Asia” cooking class, I looked in the refrigerator.   I had some leftover Asian sticky rice staring me in the face.  I had a bottle of Smoky Date “Not Ketchup”.  My sweetie had brought home a piece of salmon shrink wrapped on the recognizable white foam tray.   Hmmm.  What to make for dinner?  You know the feeling, I’m sure.   Well out of nowhere, inspiration hit and look what I created.  (more…)

Sea of Cortez Pizza and a Whale Tale

Sea of Cortez Pizza

Sea of Cortez Pizza

Simple ingredients often make the best meals.  That’s what I like about this pizza made on a boat with few tools and pizza toppings in the Sea of Cortez.

Seashells #215 2-14Last week I had a dream vacation aboard friends Kurt and Susan’s yacht.  We cruised the Sea of Cortez out of La Paz, Mexico on the Baja Peninsula.  This is an area I had not explored before and we had some amazing experiences.  Beautiful turquoise water.  Snorkeling.  Sunsets.  White Sand Beaches. Sea Shells.  Sea Turtles. Flying Manta Rays…yes, really!
