Soy-Glazed Black Cod with Orange Zest

Soy-Glazed Black Cod with Orange Zest

In the deep blue depths of Alaska’s pristine waters lies what some would consider the best tasting fish in the world–Black Cod. This incredibly flavorful fish is also referred to as Sablefish or Butterfish. It is widely known as an excellent fish for gourmet entrées and well received when smoked. Its name, Butterfish, is thought to be derived from the fact that it has a soft, buttery, delicate texture. Prepared correctly, it will literally melt in your mouth. This Soy-Glazed Black Cod with Orange Zest is by far the best recipe I have for Black Cod and will definitely be a keeper for you! Continue Reading →

Chocolate and Cinnamon Babka Buns

Chocolate and Cinnamon Babka Buns

I am a huge fan of chocolate babka, which is a sweet, yeast dough rolled and wrapped around a chocolate and cinnamon mixture that when cooked, delightfully melts in your mouth. I first learned about babka from the show Seinfeld and I was intrigued. My second babka experience happened on a trip to New York. Passing by a bakery one day, I was awestruck by the rows and rows of muffins, croissants, danishes and breads, but what stood out above everything else was a chocolate babka bun. I didn’t order one, but looking at it I was hooked into the challenge of making my own. I have made this Chocolate and Cinnamon Babka Buns recipe many times and everyone loves it! It’s a great recipe and it never fails to bring a smile to all who participate in devouring it. Continue Reading →

BLT Salad with Buttermilk Dressing

BLT Salad with Buttermilk Dressing

I will never understand why anyone would want to buy store-bought salad dressing when they are so easy to make, taste far nicer and are not pumped full of preservatives if you make them yourself. I like to make mine in a jam jar so that I can store any left overs easily in the fridge. It will sit quite happily for up to a week, so I often make up double batches to save myself time after a busy day fishing. Try this tasty BLT Salad with Buttermilk Dressing. Continue Reading →

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Crab stuffed mushrooms only look difficult to make. A large tray with an army of mini-sized appetizers, each little soldier with a browned bubbling cheese crust only suggests that you’ve slaved over them for days. Really, the most work you’ve done is chop up some vegetables and spoon filling into some mushroom caps, my favorite kind of appetizer! Continue Reading →
