Low Country Bliss...

I've fallen in love with the South Carolina.  We just got back from a family trip and I had to share the secret with all my blog buds... Charleston and Isle of Palms are amazing!  Here's a glimpse....

I know... WAY to many pictures!

Tartar love...

One of the greatest things about living in the North West is the delicious & fresh seafood we get to eat all year long.  Most of the time my thought on seafood prep is, the fresher the fish the less you need to doctor it up.   But, every now and then I need my "comfort" condiments, like tartar.  We've been grilling Salmon pretty regularly these days and to accompany it I sometimes make a quick & yummy, tartar sauce.  This recipe is my Grandma Katy's and every time I make it for company, I'm asked to "share the love" and fork it over!

...Since there's been no time to host a dinner for my beloved blog buddies, I thought I'd post it for you.  
Heads up, it makes a ton...I usually half it!  




Oops...sorry I didn't get a picture of the finished sauce...The family just had to dig in!!!

Random happiness...

Lots going on lately but somehow I've made the time for photography....
I snapped these recently & they just make me smile... 

Vashon bound bread truck,

My girls on The Washington State ferry,

Hood Canal on a sunny day,

Old water skis,

Hammocks & fresh bread,

Molly catching Jelly fish,

Katie playing in the cove,

Awaiting high tide so they can jump off the deck(like their mama used to do), 

Releasing a butterfly after its chrysalis cycle, 


Have a great week.... with lots of smiles!
