Thanks for the optimistic reminder, Joey! On these cold, gray March days it's hard to think that spring will be here soon, but of course it will. Will definitely be trying these recipes!

Oh Joey, I'm really being optimistic.
But, judging by the view outside my window, I'm stuck in the middle of uninhabitable Antarctica, freezing my assets off.



Thank you my sweet friend for another beautiful collage. And for another delicious salmon recipe, I've been saving them all!

You're right Joey, it won't be long now, although I see you had some leftover winter up at Hubbard Lake. But spring is almost here, I swear!

Hello Joey, here's hoping Spring comes soon! I enjoyed going through your recipes...both sound delicious! And thank you for stopping by my new blog.:)
I realize now that it isn't easy to write recipes. Constantly checking to see whether I've left out something...

Cheers!
