Recipes and snapshots of life in Bristol Bay, AK

I am Susie. I am a passionate home cook, wife, mother, and avid adventurer who lives and works in rural small town Alaska. My home is in Dillingham, the Western hub of Bristol Bay, Alaska. Our family practices a subsistence lifestyle and we rely on the commercial salmon industry for our livelihoods. In our small (about 550 sq. foot!) home my husband, Bronson, and I are raising our 5 year old daughter Bronwyn, our two year old daughter Gretchen, and our 12 year old nephew Ethan. Our hope is they learn from us to live life slow, appreciate good food and to use their hands to increase and share their  blessings. This blog is my way of passing on snapshots of our rural life and my favorite Alaskan inspired recipes I’ve created or adapted with you.

  1. Susie, what a beautiful life you and your family are living. I love your approach to simplicity and the wonderful quality of life it produces. I would say that your daughter and nephew are two lucky kiddos to have you two – and vice-versa. 🙂 I applaud your intrepid spirits. All the best, Terri

      Thank you for your kind words Terri, we are truly blessed to live where we live and we are doing our best to try and create a rich life for our kids and ourselves, I think it’s a daily challenge to slow down and do things ourselves in this prepackaged world. Best to you’

    Thank you for liking a few of my posts because it led me to your beautiful blog! I am so looking forward to following you once I leave Bristol Bay (this weekend!) and go into my 10 month exile away from a place that feels very much like home. ❤

      This time of year is so bitter sweet, boats are being pulled, the run is ending, friends are leaving. The Bay has this special way of getting into your heart and come spring I guarantee you’ll be dreaming of salmon!
