caipirinha salmon

Before I say anything else, go to your local seafood supplier and get some wild caught salmon while it’s still available! It won’t be here for long, so take advantage of it while it’s here.  Wild caught salmon is the way to go.  Copper River salmon is gone, but there’s still some great stuff coming ... Read More »

If you are looking for the Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge Week 3 (which is bagels), I didn’t get to it… But I have a good excuse: we rescued a 10 month old black Labrador Retriever named Dreyfus!
