Tribute

Hello friends :)  After many long nights sorting through photos, editing video from my very first interview (was pretty nervous!) and taking my time to write a special post, it is with great pride that I am able to offer to you my recent article published on the Huffington Post covering our adventures through Montana.  Specifically we were on a mission to pay a tribute to the film, “A River Runs Through It,” as 2013 is the film’s 20th year anniversary.

So without further ado, I proudly present (click the image to read):

Pressure Cooked Beef Short Ribs

From a summer full of adventure to the new season of Fall —  it’s been a lot of fun glamping in the Airstream during this season of change.  I continue to pick apples off my heirloom trees after my early morning walks through the quiet town of Roslyn with Oliver.  It’s a sweet ritual I have come to adore and really look forward to.

While cleaning/organizing the storage in my Airstream last weekend, I happened upon my beloved pressure cooker.  It was good timing too as sitting in my fridge were  some beautiful beef short ribs I was planning on braising away in the Airstream kitchen for a few hours for dinner that evening.  Thankfully with the pressure cooker it not only cut down the timing of braising by more than half, it also produced some of the most deliciously flavored short ribs I have had in a long time.  In less than one hour I was able to serve up those fall-off-the-bone beauties atop a bed of fluffy sweet potatoes. I will admit, I was little upset with myself that I had forgotten about my pressure cooker.  It truly is a time (and propane!)  saver in the silver kitchen. Continue reading »

A Fall Harvest in Roslyn, Washington with our Airstream trailer

There is something about the Fall season that simply warms my heart and gets me thinking about the cooler weather ahead.

Our Airstream, which currently happily waits for us on our piece of property in Eastern Washington sits amongst heirloom apple and plum trees surrounded by this new season.

And it never fails — with the abundance of those late summer fruits — apples and plums — that I’m continually tempted into my silver kitchen to cook . . .

. . . and to escape the everyday hustle and bustle of corporate America.

For me, this is my refuge. Continue reading »

The sun was shining, the wild flowers were in bloom and we were on our way with Airstream in tow to a beautiful, remote area along the Cle Elum river for some fly fishing.  The great people of  Troutwater were our guides and  we felt so lucky to be able to have joined them.  Jim, Tom, Jason and Amber — what a GREAT group of people!  Not only because they are such a pleasure to be with, but because of their extreme knowledge about about fly fishing.

We had such an amazing time and memories to last a lifetime.  If you are ever in the area, give Troutwater a call.  Oh, did I mention they prepare a riverside picnic?  Complete with grilled salmon, wine and chocolate dipped strawberries?  Bon Appetit and happy fishing!  Troutwater can be reached here and ask for Jim!
