Winner Winner Fish Taco Dinner!


I want to thank everyone who voted for me in the Alaska Fish Taco Contest. I got an email today letting me know that because of all of the support from my friends and family, I will be getting one of these in the mail very soon!
I am so excited and I really can't say thank you enough!

And as you all know, you win some, you loose some right?
Well, here's my loss for the week:

Bread and Butter Pickles
 I love the idea of being able to quick pickle vegetables without the hassle of canning, and the sweet and salty combo is my favorite. I found this recipe on Smitten Kitchen, which is a blog I follow and really love. After salting, brining and allowing the pickles to cool I realized they were incredibly salty. So salty, they were in-edible. Then I went back to the recipe and noticed this........I guess I'll have to try my hand at this again and hope for better results. Do you have a good refrigerator pickling recipe to share?


  1. I have a great sweet pickle recipe but it's an old-fashioned canning kind. I'll bring a jar to the next book club and you can see if you like them.
    Just popping in to say congrats again! Can't wait to ogle your iPad!

  2. thanks, I can't wait to try them!
