Leaving Tenants Harbor, we were on a mission. Friends from Jamestown were staying on the north shore of Deer Isle along the Eggemoggin Reach, had a deep water dock to offer, and had invited us for a visit. And there was just a two-day window to catch up with them. So off we went, up Muscle Ridge Channel, north the length of Penobscot Bay, and into Eggemoggin Reach. With the exception of a little fog at the entrance to Muscle Ridge, it was a gorgeous day to be out on the water. We had a great ride, and the views were beautiful. By 3:00 pm we were alongside the dock on The Reach, and Enzo and Renata were there to meet us. Continue reading Maine Cruise 2018 – Deer Isle and Our Very Own Personal Chefs

Shakedown – Part 2 – SALMON!
We arrived in Friday Harbor on Tuesday after a beautiful run down Haro Strait and in through Cattle Pass. Sunshine and a fair current always improve the mood, and we loved it.
The one thing we missed that day was an open invitation to go fishing with our new water-rat friends from LaConner, Scott and Ellen, on Scott’s Skagit Orca. Scott is an accomplished outdoorsman and fisherman and had already shared some fresh catch with us a week earlier. Sigh. We can’t have everything. Continue reading Shakedown – Part 2 – SALMON!
It’s been a cookie winter. First the Tug Cookies, now the Scottie Cookies. Funny thing is, I’m not normally a cookie/sweets person, but that’s what I have to offer this winter.
We wanted to find a way to share Holiday Cheer with the boat builders at Tomco, but from such a distance, it was hard. After tossing around a few thoughts, we settled on COOKIES! Not just any cookies, but American Tug cookies. Continue reading Merry Christmas!
Experimenting Again – With Food
Now that I’m beginning to recover from shoulder replacement surgery, Bruce is down for the count with a stress fracture in his foot, in a metatarsal bone. It was misdiagnosed for the first three weeks as an infection, then (long story) correctly diagnosed as a stress fracture, after he had been walking on it for those three weeks. So now he has a long recovery of four to six weeks with NO WEIGHT BEARING (emphasis added by his foot doctor), which will be a real trial.
I am trying to take care of him, but as he is in prison on the sofa in his man-cave with his foot elevated, there’s not much I can do other than cook him a decent meal every now and then. He’s a carnivore so I should be focusing on meat, but today I was a little selfish and produced a Dill Roasted Plum Tomato Tart with a Pine Nut Crust. It’s from one of my favorite new books, Amy Chaplin’s At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen – Celebrating the Art of Eating Well. Continue reading Experimenting Again – With Food
