I really like baking with sourdough. However, it has the downside of needing to be fed once a week. That means taking starter out and refilling the starter with more flour and water.

Apparently a monster was created when we had some Sockeye Salmon in a prior post. When She Who Must Be Obeyed came home from shopping she had some nice small sockeye salmon fillet portions. The weather was miserable so I decided to bake them and made Maple Glazed Salmon. Continue reading Maple Glazed Salmon
Ever since I first tried Louisiana Grills Hickory Bacon Seasoning, I knew I had to try it on potatoes. I love bacon and potatoes. So, I did an old favourite, oven fried potatoes and used it as the seasoning. Continue reading Hickory Bacon Oven Fries
