Greetings from Alaska

Just wanted to say hello! I have been reading alot of posts and can't believe all the tips I have already picked up here! I'm so excited! I love to cook for my family and we LOVE to eat!

Sometimes I have to remind myself that to practice eating to live NOT living to eat. Hee-hee

Bye for now! :0)

Ohhh, that's a great idea! I have some sweet pics on my big puter but right now I'm in the kitchen with the laptop. Here is a picture I have uploaded of a teenage bullmoose who was "caught" on camera trespassing on our lawn last month (we didn't mind, he's so cute) http://members.sparedollar.com/anisah/moose1.jpg

Here are some other pictures that I have googled for ya! Enjoy!

Hi KadesMa! It's nice to meet you too! I'm really enjoying browsing around DC and you folks are sooo friendly! I have picked up alot of helpful hints so far and I can't wait until I can add some of my own tips.

I love baking and really enjoy ethnic foods. My hubby and I are hooked on sushi which we just tried recently for the first time. I think I'll go do a search for sushi on DC and see what comes up. I'd love to know how to make a spicy california roll!

How FUN this place is! :0)

Princess - we make sushi quite a bit - PM me or use my e-mail and I'll find out your likes and dislikes - I went through a period of craving sushi also - I ate it at LEAST 5 times a week - my poor family ate cheaply then!!!!! E-mail me about it, ok?

Thanks also

No princess, I never got the chance to make anything!! I love california rolls but noone else in my house will eat them, so, it would be a waste of time and gas to go looking for any of the ingredients. Hope yours come out wonderful though. Do you careflight??

Texasgirl what ingredients did you need? If it wasn't fish or anything perishable maybe I could help? I'd be happy to send you the seaweed wrappers, wasabi, sushi rice etc. We have a great city market that has loads of international type foods.

Do I careflight? I don't know what that is.

I meant for you to send your finished sushi care package to me

Truthfully, the only thing that I can find down here is the fish and soy sauce. That is how bad it is here. I can probably find some things on the internet, I think. I'll figure out the cost of things and if you can get them and mail them cheaper, I'll pm you.
Thanks!!
