We were spending our first summer in Alaska. Ben guided for the first time that year, working on the rivers in the Mat-Su valley with Fisherman’s Choice Charters.
I should preface this series with saying that I am the baker in the house, Ben is the chef. I’m a good cook as well, I just happen to enjoy baking more than cooking. The exceptions to this rule are the nights when I start reading Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, vacations when I wander aimlessly through local markets in search of new culinary delights or other times in life when I have minimal responsibilities and can really enjoy creating a meal. The first recipe in this series — Salmon Alfredo; was a happy accident I created when I took a summer off after grad school. In our day to day lives, I’m more likely to be responsible for our dessert favorites.
