Ham and Egg Sandwich

Ham and Egg Sandwich

While writing this cookbook, I have been thinking about all the delicious treats I’ve had on my trips out of Alaska. It got me to thinking about the foods that I crave from those travels, which got me to thinking about a trip Ole and I took to Old San Juan. Walking by a bakery, I laid my eyes on a flaky pastry dusted in confectioner’s sugar. I had to have one. Fluffy, buttery, slightly sweet and oh so good! I then learned that you could halve them and stuff each roll with ham, a fried egg and cheese making this Ham and Egg Sandwich a sweet and savory treat. I learned to make them and found that this is the sort of recipe that can come together in the evening while watching your favorite show. They will keep well over night and in the morning, you can treat your family to freshly baked sweet rolls. Continue Reading →

The paper or foil holds in the moisture, concentrates the flavor and protects the delicate flesh. The fish essentially steams in the oven and in its own juices. Follow the folding and cooking instructions carefully. The “foil” packets can be cooked in the oven or on the grill. Continue Reading →

Sauteed Snapper with Fresh Avocado Salsa

Sauteed Snapper with Fresh Avocado Salsa

A few thoughts before you get started on the salsa for this Sauteed Snapper with Fresh Avocado Salsa. Make sure the tomatoes you use for this dish are nice and hard, with no hint of ripening. Look for avocados that are ripe but still firm‒the ones on which the stem at the end still wiggles. And finally, this salsa can be made up to a day ahead, though the fresher it is, the brighter it will be. Continue Reading →
