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.
